THE DA VINCI CODE: Separating Fact From Fiction
by Martin R. De Haan II

Released in March 2003, the book The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown quickly made The New York Times bestseller list. A year later, it was declared a bestseller in 100 countries, while Doubleday, its publisher, called it “the all-time bestselling adult novel.” Why such interest? The author claims to have given the world a fictional, fact-based conspiracy theory alleging “scientific evidence that the New Testament is false testimony” (p.341).

Because a “good read” combined with bad history is not something to stake your life on, we have asked RBC research editor Dennis Fisher to help us sort out the facts from the fiction.

The FACT's about the Da Vinci Code that most people are overlooking is the TRUTH about how the church has corrupted the bible.
A perfect example of what I mean, aside from all the distant past examples that could be disputed perhaps, I shall call to mind one of the most famous quotes from the BIBLE.
John 3:16
"For God so loved the world he sent his only begotten son..."

However, if you grab a current NIV, for instance, it now reads
John 3:16
"For God so loved the world he sent His one and only son..."

These two passages do NOT mean the same fact the NEW version makes me think about Christ reminding us to beware of any who would change the words and meanings, which is why I wrote a version of the BIBLE as well.
ONE of us is right...and one is NOT.
your humble servant,

Hello Ancient...
Thanks for the comments and link. I like your Bible ... (smile)

"The FACT's about the Da Vinci Code that most people are overlooking is the TRUTH about how the church has corrupted the bible".

There are many "corrupted" [translations]. However, we have what is understood as "the better manuscripts". With those, it is quite easy to discern the original writings, which is why I have a link called Biblical Manuscript Evidence which addresses many of the critics claims.

The foundation of the Biblical texts were layed down, not by the "church" (referring to the Roman Catholic Church of the Middle ages) but by the early church fathers, around 120AD, 200 some odd years before the Roman Catholic Church came into existance.

According to Pastor Mark Biltz, world renowned for having made a connection between NASA eclipses & major events concerning the Jewish People, there are many things wrong with "The Last Supper" painting. All except Judas, show more Greek than Hebrew facial features, no children as is the usual at a supper with a Rabbi, no tassles on the garments, they would be sitting on cushions at a lower table than shown, & the loaf of bread was with leaven.

I don't know the exact sermon, but here's a link to Pastor Mark Biltz's church website of another video.

Wendell, I really like your website! Blessings in the Name of YHWH!
