Gathering dust at the British Museum is an ancient manuscript of the early Church, written by an anonymous monk, at least 1,600 years old, providing the first ever translation from Syriac into English of a profound document—some twenty-nine chapters in length —that tells us the inside story of Jesus’ social, family, and political life. The Lost Gospel takes the reader on an exciting adventure through this highly informative ancient manuscript. After decoding the basic symbolism, something surprising and groundbreaking was discovered: confirmation of Jesus' marriage to Mary Magdalene the names of their two children; the towering presence of Mary Magdalene (a Gentile priestess), a serious plot on Jesus’ life in 19 C.E. prior to the crucifixion; an assassination plot against their children; Jesus’ connection to political figures at the highest level of the Roman Empire—Emperor Tiberius and his protégé Sejanus; a religious movement that antedates that of Paul—the Church of Mary Magdalene.
