the proof for the historical marriage between Jesus of Nazareth and the woman known as Mary the Magdalene has become overwhelming. …They marry, but she’s not simply “Mrs. Jesus.” She is a partner in redemption referred to as the “Daughter of God” and “The Bride of God.”
The book is the partner to a documentary entitled The Bride of God, set to air on the Discovery Science channel during December.
