Gospels give the full picture

First published in Letters

The Da Vinci Code is a topic that will always remain controversial in the church and at the same time attracts a great deal of interest.

In modern times, anything controversial seems to create bestsellers, and authors know this.

The Da Vinci Code led to a documentary made by Tony Robinson, which was aimed at the church.

This particular book is so controversial because we only see one side of the story. We never learn of any false evidence about Christ and it was falsehood like this that had Christ crucified. The only motive for the crucifixion was envy and so false testimony was written during the trial of Christ.

In fact, in early stages of the Gospels, we learn of a plot against Jesus. So it is very likely that it was at this point that false evidence and inaccuracies were written.

Those who are convinced by what is written in The Da Vinci Code should really think again and study the Gospels. It was all to do with envy that Christ had any opposition.

Talking of misleading untruths, can you answer me one thing: how does the bible explain the striking similarities between the Big J and Mithras?

As you'll know, Mithras was also the son of a God, and preceded Jesus by six centuries or so.

He was:

Was born on December 25th to a virgin, and offered gifts by wise men
Was a performer of miracles
Had 12 disciples who followed him on his quest to educate all men into the love of the Lord
Was buried in a tomb, and after three days he rose again.
Had his principal festival at Easter
His sacred day was Sunday, "the Lord's Day."

…I could go on, but you get the point.
