Default New trailer is out

Movie "Bloodline". Documentary investigating whether there is/was an actual bloodline from Jesus and Mary Magdaline.

My question is, is it really that big of a secret/importance to the church if Jesus was proven to have had offspring via Mary? I mean, its not like Zeus didn't screw mortal women and one begot Hercules or whatever. I don't see how it would destroy the church. I don't see how it could debunk Jesus being the son of God if that is what you believe.

If they had conclusive/widely accepted evidence that Jesus lived, I think that would be a strong BENEFIT to the church.

I think it could hinder the fact that Jesus was there with one purpose and that was to teach the people about God and offer them a simpler way to have a Relationship with him. Plus, if he did sleep with her, that would be him falling into temptaion and that would make him imperfect. So then he wouldn't be the pure spotless Sacrifice that is required to atone for our sins.

Just a opinion. I'd be interested to see what they have to say.

Maybe he was married to her? There is a very very large gap in the history of his life?

Marrige might have been in that gap and I don't think it would kill the church and know it wouldn't change my beliefs.

I'm very intersted in what Jesus was up to in the days of his teens and 20's that are not recorded.

On a side note. If we are begot of Adam and Eve, and Adam and Eve had Kain and Abel. Who did Kain and Abel sleep with and have children with? Isn't incest at the heart of the genesis story? :)

got a link to the trailer?

I think it would matter mainly because it was not recorded in the gospels that he got married. I think a significant event such as that would have had some press, especially his children. Jesus had brothers and sisters, but no kids. When Jesus ascended into heaven and left the disciples, they were scared for their lives, they had no idea what to do, but the task of speading that message was on them. I would imagine that if Jesus had kids, they would have been a part of the early church and would have been documented. But the problem is that they were not. Think of a King on Earth who had kids, they get in line for the royal throne, no kids were in Jesus' lineage, and if there were, they would have played a vital role in the early church, and I am sure the Apostle Paul would have made mention of it, or included that kid in his discipleship, just like he did with the young man Timothy.

http://www.apple.com/trailers/independent/bloodline/

was marriage publicized like that though in those days?

I can agree with the "if he had kids" thought. I think though is that he didn't know mary was pregnant at the time of the crucifixion and thus she went into hiding perhaps. If you hide the truth from the children in order to protect them you also don't have the struggle for power within the family as it were. It's an interesting question regardless.

Marriage was HUGE in those days. The Jews partied literally for days for the celebration of wedding. As a matter of fact, Jesus' first plublic miracle was at a wedding feast in Cana of Galilee, I am sure you remember the water into wine story. The party for this wedding had been going so long that they ran out of wine. I am sure you have been to a long reception before, and stayed to the end when everyone is toasted. Well Jesus busts out the extra wine right at the right time. His Mother Mary was there, and so were Jesus's disciples, the wedding miracle was his gateway into his three year mission. Also, Jesus told a parable based on the culture of weddings. So again, it was a BIG deal, and it was publically known enough where he used marriage to illustrate a truth he came to teach. (See John 2 and Matthew 22 if interested in reading either text I mentioned).

That movie sounds like nothing more than hype, the same way that the tomb of Jesus tv documentary was crap, the same way that the divinci code was crap. This is just playing off of the last big money maker.
