Word on the Street : Da Vinci Code

Do you plan to see the Da Vinci Code movie? Do you think that Jesus and Mary Magdalene were married?

Adina, I haven't read it, but I've heard a lot about it…that it was amazing. I didn't, though, know there was a movie. I think it's outrageous to think that they were married. I was raised Catholic, so I guess I was brought up believing Jesus was not married and I'm sticking with that. That's the way it is.

Kate: I haven't read it, but my family has. I do plan on seeing it with my sister for her birthday. I don't think Jesus and Mary Magdalene being married is outrageous. It was in the book, and I think it's very interesting. I don't believe everything I read, but I do think it's something to think about.

I'm going to give the movie a try. As far as Mary Magdalene and Jesus being married, it could be possible and it couldn't.

I want to read the book before the movie, but it looks interesting. I'm not a very religious person, but I think that they could have been married. It could be a conspiracy or cult-like thing.

I read it but didn't get through it. I thought what I read was interesting, and it was a good story. Obviously, I don't believe the story is historical, but Jesus was a person who existed, so maybe he did have a relationship with someone and kids.

I've read some. I didn't get through it all. I would definitely see the movie. I know that there is a good story, and I love Tom Hanks. He's a good actor.

The Bible is in men's words and sometimes they can make Jesus look the way they want. He was 33 years old, so he might have been in some kind of relationship. I think that the Da Vinci Code will be interesting. I might see it.
