To Christians: What did you think of The Da Vinci Code? (book and/or film)

Watching it right now and just wondering what some christians (of all types: pagans, catholics etc) think of the film and what is being suggested.

yes yes, its fiction i know. BUT...what if this was considered as a possible theory?

(Some do consider this much more believable then what is written in the bible)

    What????


    I enjoyed the movie & can't wait to see Angels & Demons, as I enjoyed that book too. As for the theories behind it, they are interesting. It seems to me probable that Jesus the person was married, but the idea of his bloodline being followed & protected for centuries without anyone spilling, seems unlikely. Mythologically speaking, it is interesting to consider the impact if that became the accepted story.

  • Oh, my answer....I agree with you anon.

    There really are just so many holes in the bible and the stories.

  • There are missing books but i however do not beleive in this theory. From day one Jesus knew his mission and knew he would have to die for us. That being said, I do not beleive he got married or had children becuase it would have been irresponsible of him.

  • Loved the books, loved the movies, can't wait to see Angels and Demons. I actually do believe that Jesus may have been married to Mary, since he was a man after all.

  • The hoax of the Priori of Sion was believed. By a lot of people and for many years. It was eventually disproven, but while they believed the documents were as old as they looked, it was absolutely considered possible. Up until Dan Brown made it famous, and gave all the people who debunked it a reason to be on TV, a lot of people still believed it, even though it had been disproven over ten years earlier.

    Enough people believed it to keep that book on the bestsellers list for years.

  • I thought it was a wonderful work of fiction and very intelligently written, and I loved Angels and Demons even more and cannot WAIT to see it!
    I also believe that the idea of Christ taking a wife has enough support to be considered an option, even has support in the Bible and other texts, especially when taking Jewish culture/practice into consideration.

  • Then again, this also goes back to whether someone is a Trinitarian or not....
    Those who believe Jesus is God incarnate are less likely to believe this possibility.
    I, myself, am a Unitarian...
    I don't know enough to say whether I believe He did or didn't marry her, but there's plenty of evidence to support the thought.
