It’s not the first time the Lord Jesus has come under attack for being the Son of the God and we know it won’t be the last. However, in recent times, readers have seen an influx of pseudo-scientific religious revisionist historical fiction intertwined with a few mysterious characters and have it called truth. Of note, the DaVinci Code falls in line with that. When it came out, Christians were shaken to the core thinking their faith was a majority vote of elevating Jesus Christ to divine status. Not to mention married and fathered children with Mary Magdalene.
Other authors have jumped on the bandwagon with the plots getting more twisted, sacrilegious, and downright wrong. After all, alternative history mixed with a legalistic interpretation of faith plus two ounces of truth equals sales.
There was a time when nothing of this sort would have been printed but, as the saying goes, times have changed. With that in mind, we going to chat with returning guest Lewis Smith, author and historian to put The Jesus ‘Conspiracy’ in its proper place.
