The Real Painter of the Gospel: The DaVinci Code in the Light of History
by James Denison, Ph.D. , Senior Pastor of Park Cities Baptist Church, Dallas, Texas
Nearly three years ago, I picked up Dan Brown's The DaVinci Code on the new fiction table at a local bookstore. Its cover and title led me to believe it would be a work of art history. Given my interest in the general subject, and in Leonardo in particular, I began thumbing through the volume. It was quickly obvious that the writer intended something far different.

Conspiracy Theories: Conspiracy theories paradoxically confirm both our powerlessness and our importance.
by Dr. Carl Trueman , Professor of Historical Theology and Church History at Westminster Theological Seminary
Put these two things together – our feelings of powerlessness, and our suspicion of those with power – and you have a culture which is very receptive to the ideas put forward in many conspiracy theories.

Lost Books of the Bible
Missing Books of the Bible – where are they?
by James Denison, Ph.D. , Senior Pastor of Park Cities Baptist Church, Dallas, Texas
Are there missing books of the Bible? In The Da Vinci Code, historian Teabing calls the creation of the Bible "The fundamental irony of Christianity!" and asserts, "The Bible, as we know it today, was collated by the pagan Roman emperor Constantine the Great" (p. 231).
The Judas We Never Knew
by Dr. Phillip G. Ryken , Pastor of 10th Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia, PA
What we remember most about Judas are the things that happened in the last days of his life: his secret meeting with the chief priests (Matt. 26:14); the bargaining price for his betrayal (Matt. 26:15); his early departure from the Last Supper (John 13:26-30); and his infamous kiss in the Garden of Gethsemane (Luke 22:47-48). We also remember what happened afterwards. Filled with remorse, Judas told the chief priests that he had sinned by betraying innocent blood (Matt. 27:3-4). Then he went out and hanged himself (Matt. 27:5). Judas Iscariot was the villain who betrayed Jesus Christ unto death.

The Gnostics And Jesus

Lost books of the Bible
by Timothy Keller , Adjunct Professor of Practical Theology at Westminster Theological Seminary and pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church (PCA) in New York City
What are these "lost books of the Bible" we keep hearing about? We read in The Da Vinci Code that there are earlier texts than the recognized gospels. Is this true?
Gnostic Gospels

The Gospel of Judas: Two Levels of Scam
by Peter Jones, Ph. D. , Executive Director, Christian Witness in a Pagan Planet
Nothing has changed. We have known about this second century diversity for 1800 years. The "myth of a monolithic religion" is a modern straw man. The 20th century Church was not taken by surprise in 1945, when 52 Gnostic texts were found in Nag Hammadi, Egypt. Judas is not "explosive." It merely brings the count to 53.

Da Vinci Code or Divine Christ: Who Do You Trust?
by Dr. K. Scott Oliphint , Professor of Apologetics and Systematic Theology Westminster Theological Seminary
Dan Brown, in The Da Vinci Code is not the first one to challenge the divinity of Christ. The devil himself receives that honor. Neither will Brown’s challenge of Christ’s divinity be the last one; others are bound to come.

The Holy Grail?
The Bizarre Under world of Modern Grail Seekers
by William Edgar, Ph.D. , Professor of Apologetics, Westminster Theological Seminary
It is not the Jesus of the holy Grail that is lost, it is we, who stray, and hide from God. It is not we who must find him in some desperate search for the Grail, but him who, in his relentless quest of love, finds us in order to dignify us all, both men and women, if we would but lift the empty hands of faith to receive his free gift.

Author Dan Brown - How does his research stack up?
by Garry Williams, Ph.D. , Tutor in Church History and Doctrine at Oak Hill Theological College in London.
Author Dan Brown bases much of his The Da Vinci Code on historical references. He even makes the specific claim that the Priory of Sion is a real organization. Now, many times when reading a novel with a historical base, readers will assume the author has done his research and it reporting true facts in his book. How well does Brown know his history?
