    Unlike "The Da Vinci Code," which is a fictional narrative, "Holy Blood, Holy Grail," is a more documentarian treatise on the speculations about the post-crucifixion times of Jesus; although both books focus upon the same theories.

    These speculations include a possible marriage between Jesus and Mary Magdalene among other suggestions regarding his life. There is documentation from a Buddhist monastery that Jesus spent his "missing years" in India... the sayings of Jesus and the Buddha (Siddhartha Gautama - who lived 500 years before Jesus) are remarkably similar; and his teachings of kindness and compassion are almost identical to the Buddhist teachings. When Jesus returned to Judea after his missing years, teaching the divine love of God within every human being, a very basic concept of Buddhism, this was considered a heresy to the Roman Empire, the ruler of Judea, which felt that divinity was reserved only for Caesar; and the teachings of Jesus were considered heresy by the Sanhedrin as well, which taught that God is separate from man.

    Anything regarding the life of Jesus that is not included in the Bible can only be considered speculation, at least until those speculative theories can be proven beyond the shadow of a reasonable doubt. Speculative materials are coming to light as more and more documentation is being discovered. Don't forget that the Council of Nicea, which established Christianity as an official religion (beginning first with the Roman Catholic Church as an extension of the Roman Empire), excised many, many documents which did not serve the Roman desire for power and conquest. The Dead Sea Scrolls and the discovery of the scrolls in Egypt that purport to be Gospels of Mary Magdalene, Phillip and Thomas are shedding more light on the life of Jesus.

    There is a very interesting website that offers many speculations about the life of Jesus in more ways than one. You may read them at: www.tombofjesus.com. It is a comprehensive website that has been around for several years now. But be warned, you must have a very open mind to consider what is discussed on this website, for it is a theory that can rock the foundation of Christianity. All I can tell you is that it all makes a lot more sense to me than what we have been told over the years.

    The authors sure did their research. Their research is actually pretty breathtaking in its scope. What the people who have answered have failed to notice is that there are two components to the book - its historical research, which is factual and can be checked if you have the time, and the speculative conclusions they draw from their research. They never said they believed in all their conclusions, merely that given the data they have assembled, their conclusions are possible.

    If you draw your own conclusions, it's a very interesting read. Of course, they have chosen their data to fit their conclusions too, and possibly avoided any conflicting data. Either way it's an interesting read, and Dan Brown should have his *** kicked for turning it into a crappy book and an even crappier movie.

    There is actually a show on A&E were someone went to all of the places in the book and it was uncovered that the family tree and the secret society that is the main part of their book and the same things that the Dav vinci code are based on were made up by a man who wanted his name in the family tree of Jesus. The only known faction of the secret society was created by this man in the 1950's.

    It was a really revealling documentary

    I like it almost as much as Ivy Blood, Ivy Grail....

    But seriously folks...it is interesting but loaded with speculation. If you like that kind of material, try the Hiram Key.

    It raises many points but in the end, none of it is provable. However, that being said, you can't prove a negative so it could bear some truth. It is simply an unknowable, too many years have passed.

    Honestly? I think there's a sucker born every minute, like PT Barnum said. I think that the authors cashed in on this fact.
