Jesus Was Married? Another Jesus and Mary Magdalene Hoax

Jesus Was Married? ‘The Lost Gospel’ claims a 1,500-year-old manuscript stored at the British Library provides evidence Jesus married Mary Magdalene and fathered two sons with her.

The authors of this story are Barrie Wilson, a professor of religious studies at Canada’s York University, and Canadian-Israeli screenwriter and documentarian Simcha Jacobovici, and they are basing their tale off the Ecclesiastical History of Zacharias Rhetor (of Mytilene), an Aramaic-language text that has been in the British Museum then the British Library for almost 170 years.

“Before anyone gets his/her theological back up, keep in mind that we are not attacking anyone’s theology,” the authors say. “We are reporting on text.” Reporting is a little modest. Wilson and Jacobovici, who has made discredited claims about the historical Jesus before, more accurately “decoded” the text, which is about a man name Joseph and his wife, Aseneth — characters that the authors say are stand-ins for Jesus and Mary Magdalene.
