Where Facts and Fiction Meet: The Biblical Christ in a Da Vinci Code Society


Who is the real Jesus? Did the church in the fourth century change the true message of the Gospel? Was Jesus married? What are the Gnostic Gospels? Did Leonardo Da Vinci plant secret messages in his paintings? These and other questions are answered in this fascinating, Bible-based video comparing the Christ of Scripture with the Jesus of “The Da Vinci Code.”

Dove Review

“Where Facts and Fiction Meet: The Biblical Christ in a Da Vinci Code Society” is a remarkable DVD that answers questions people might have regarding the accuracy of “The Da Vinci Code.” The film deals with controversial claims about whether Jesus was actually “married” to Mary Magdalene and proves, with support of historical texts, that no such marriage took place. Did Da Vinci really plant secret codes or messages in his paintings and work? This DVD also addresses that question, as well as other fascinating conjectures and theories, by using historical texts and accounts to determine what really is fiction and what is true.

The film features paintings, pictures, and experts’ comments and makes a solid case against the errors that have crept in from “The Da Vinci Code” in the last several years. We recommend this film for all ages, although it is not intended for very young children. This film will help reinforce your faith in Scripture.
