The book that claims Jesus had a wife and kids — and the embattled author behind itBreaking News

The authors want to talk about Christ. They want you to know that, buried beneath centuries of misinformation and conspiracy, Jesus had a secret wife, named Mary Magdalene, and he fathered two children with her. And they want you to know that their book on the matter, named the “Lost Gospel,” is on sale soon for $21.74. “If true,” reported the Daily Mail in an overheated dispatch, “this would make it the greatest revelation into the life of Jesus in nearly 2,000 years.”
Indeed. If true. But is this just the latest theory of an embattled researcher?
Rekindling one of the Jesus Christ’s greatest mysteries, a la “The Da Vinci Code,” the new book draws from a 1,500-year-old Aramaic-language manuscript found inside the British Library. There, the authors say, the secrets of Jesus’s family life have been in plain sight for more than a century.
