Jesus and Mary Magdalene
Today there are in circulation hundreds of articles, dozens of books and a similar number of videos and TV documentaries trying to convince their readers and viewers with more and more New Evidence to establish that there was an intimate relationship between Jesus and Mary Magdalene. Several of them go further and seek to provide conclusive evidence that they were married and had a son. The majority of their viewers and readers come from religious backgrounds. However, one crucial fact that they have overlooked is that they DO HAVE comprehensive support within the Old Testament, the Canonical Gospels and the Qur'an.
Yes... The Jewish Bible that was written and was in circulation centuries before the birth of Jesus and Mary Magdalene has in clear and unambiguous terms explained that the one who will "render himself as a guilt offering" and will be "put to grief and bruised" will have a long life and see his offspring. Meaning that prophesized individual, if he was Jesus, he was not celibate.
Yes... Jesus had himself alluded to the fulfillment of that biblical prophecy...
Apostle Luke records in his Gospel what Jesus had foretold his disciples:
"For I tell you, that this which is written must be fulfilled in me,
'And he was reckoned with criminals';
for that which refers to me has its fulfillment." Luke 22: 37
The cross-references in most Bibles have recorded that
Jesus was referring to Chapter 53 from the Book of Isaiah.
Below is an eye-opening passage - Verse 10 - from that Chapter 53:
"But the Lord was pleased to bruise him, putting him to grief; if he would render himself as a guilt offering, he will see his offspring. God will prolong his days,
and the good pleasure of the Lord will prosper in his hand."
Recent researches indicate that after his nailing to the Cross
(the tragedy and sorrow that was witnessed by Mother Mary and Mary Magdalene)
the DAYS OF JESUS were prolonged and that
HISTORICAL REAL JESUS
passed his Final Days with Mary Magdalene in France

Moses was married and had offspring...
Why Not Jesus?
"If you believed Moses, you would believe me, for he wrote about me.
But if you do not believe what he wrote, how will you believe what I say?"
Words spoken by Jesus, John 5: 46-47.
The Cross Reference takes us to Deuteronomy 18: 15 which reads:
"The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me
from among your own people;
you shall heed such a prophet." See also 18: 18.
To negate that concept of Jesus was like Moses
amounts to negating both, Jesus and Moses
The denial of the New Testament as well as the Old Testament...
"If you abide in my words, you are truly my disciples:
and you will know the Truth, and the Truth will make you FREE." John 8: 31-32.
The entire episode of
JESUS FORGIVES AN ADULTEROUS WOMAN
John Chapter 8 verses 1 to 11
does not appear in the older manuscripts of the New Testament.
Was there NOT a serious conspiracy behind this INJECTED EPISODE?
The world famous painter Leonardo Da Vinci probably
knew that the historical Jesus was married to Mary Magdalene
and that the life of Jesus was prolonged by God
as prophesized by Isaiah...
The Church could re-written the Gospel texts concerning
The Apostle and Author of a discovered Gnostic Gospel,
but could not re-paint the fresco on a Church wall...
LORD GOD IS THE MASTER PLANNER
HE EXPOSES HIS TRUTH IN HIS OWN TIME AND PLACE...
'THE LAST SUPPER' - one of the masterpiece divine painting by Leonardo Da Vinci, painted in 1498 on the wall of 'Santa Maria delle Grazie Church in Milan, Italy, has started a significant Jesus controversy.
Dan Brown's book 'The Da Vinci Code' and
the leading USA television network ABC's documentary (in 2003)
'Jesus, Mary and Da Vinci',
assert that JESUS CHRIST WAS MARRIED TO
THE DISCIPLE SITTING ON HIS RIGHT HAND IN THE ABOVE PAINTING
AN APOSTLE OF THE APOSTLES - MARY MAGDALENE...
Yes.. The Qur'an (Koran) that was revealed after the historical Jesus had lived his life upon this earth also reveals that the Prophets who came before Muhammad too were married and had offspring like Moses, Noah and Abraham. There is no indication, directly or even remotely, that Jesus - the son of Mary, was an exception...
Please read the following verses from the Qur'an (Koran)...
"And, truly, We sent messengers before thee (O' Muhammad),
and We appointed for them wives and offspring..."
Qur'an 13 :38
Even before thy time, (O' Muhammad) We never sent (as Our Messengers)
any but (mortal) men, whom We inspired - hence;
If you do not know this, ask those who possess the earlier Message.
and neither did We endow them with bodies that ate no food,
nor were they exempt from death.
Qur'an 21: 7-8.
And never have We granted life everlasting
to any mortal before thee...
Qur'an 21: 34
Note: There not a SINGLE VERSE within the Qur'an for the Second Coming of Jesus from heaven and yet many misguided Muslims who prefer to place their faith in "man-made documents" rather than the Revealed Verses of the Qur'an are waiting for Jesus to return!
Note: The Canonical Gospels confirm that prior to Jesus being nailed to his Cross, he was flogged and made to walk a long distance carrying his own wooden Cross. On the way the fatigued and exhausted Jesus stumbled. While nailed to the Cross, the disciples made Jesus drink a mixture of vinegar and medicines. All these made him lose consciousness for a short period. His legs were not broken and the large amount of his body weight was carried by his unbroken legs. The stretched out arms on the cross, allowed Jesus to breath easily. The next day being Jewish Sabbath Jesus was lowered from the cross before the sunset. His disciple(s) laid him in a Rock Tomb and wrapped the unconscious body with bandages and herbs. The following day, the fully rested, recouped and resuscitated Jesus saw Mary Magdalene in the Garden. Mary was told to inform the disciples that he was going to a pre-arranged location in Galilee and meet them. After the meeting, as a safeguard, the disciples spread the news that their Master - Teacher Jesus was physically taken up into the sky by two angels and that they saw that happening with their own eyes. Since Jesus and Mary Magdalene had left the country, his enemies and persecutors who although did not believe this circulating news could do no more than to punish the followers. WAS THERE A MASTER PLAN OF THE LORD GOD BEHIND IT?
Not with standing what has been discovered, depicted and demonstrated in this century, the denial of a basic fact that JESUS WAS MARRIED is a denial of the OLD TESTAMENT, CANONICAL GOSPELS and THE QUR'AN...
REDISCOVERING THE REALITIES OF JESUS
-his crucifixion, resurrection, ascension and celibacy- (2003)
by Akbarally Meherally
This research study judiciously draws together documentary evidence from the Old Testament, the Canonical and Gnostic Gospels, the Nag Hammadi Library, the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Qur'an. Upon extensive investigations, from theses texts emerges a well-synthesized image of an identifiable Jesus - a Messiah logically engaging to both, Christians with open minds and Muslims who do not doubts the Revealed Words of their Creator, Sustainer and Judge.
