4.0 out of 5 stars A Gnostic viewpoint, 3 Aug 2008
This review is from: The Magdalene Legacy: The Jesus and Mary Bloodline Conspiracy - Revelations Beyond The Da Vinci Code (Paperback)
I feel that the reviewer B.B. of The Magdalene Legacy has somewhat missed the point. The reviewer is correct in stating that nowhere in the four Gospels does it state that Joanna is the sister of Jesus but has failed to appreciate that is just the point that is being made by the author - the Roman church supressed the Gnostic gospels in which such information is to be found when the church was founded by Constantine 1700 years ago. It seems a pity to go to the trouble of reviewing a book if one cannot be bothered to read it properly or to understand the premise of the book in question. I believe this book to be an excellent starting point to an individual exploration and understanding of Gnostic writings.

The church was founded by Constantine? I beg your pardon? The church was in existence right from the start, and is mentioned many times in the New Testament. Does this reviewer mean the established church of the Roman Empire?

And the Gnostic gospels were never anything to do with original Christianity, as they were not even written in the first century. They were later creations, as was Gnosticism itself.

In light of this reviewer's failure to grasp these most basic facts, his/her criticisms of another more careful reviewer seem a little premature!
