Beyond The Da Vinci Code
'The Da Vinci Code' is a bestselling novel that has sparked a debate that could change the way the world views Jesus, Mary Magdalene, and Christianity forever…
What if Jesus and Mary Magdalene had been a married couple and co-leaders of their movement? What if Mary Magdalene, herself, was the Holy Grail; the vessel that was said to hold Jesus’ blood, and the mother of His descendants?
What if the early Church knew about this ‘truth’ but deliberately misled its followers for the next 2000 years? What if there was a secret organization called the Priory of Sion who protected this bloodline throughout the Dark Ages and up into the present day?
What if some of the most illustrious names in art and science had been members of this Priory, charged with passing on this knowledge from generation to generation? And finally, how would the world react if this secret or ‘alternate history’ were revealed to the public?
These are some of the questions that Dan Brown’s 'The Da Vinci Code' raises and seeks to answer. This two-hour documentary will examine both sides of the story: the conventional view of Christianity and the ‘alternate history’ proposed by Brown’s novel.
It is a 2000 year journey through time, examining the histories and mysteries of the Holy Grail - both from the perspective of the believers and from skeptics, letting the viewers reach their own conclusions.
Is it the greatest story ever told or just the greatest story ever sold?
