Craig Evans

Craig Evans has added a couple of items of interest to his homepage:

Da Vinci and the Code Breakers
Brown’s curious theories of Gospel sources and what he thinks is the true story of the historical Jesus find no support in sober scholarship—whether Protestant, Catholic, liberal, or conservative. Instead, what Brown gives us is a fascinating amalgam of legend, unsupported theories, and egregious inaccuracies when it comes to his most important documents. He would have us believe that the true story of Jesus is preserved in Gnostic Gospels and the symbols and metaphors of the Priory of Sion, the Masons, the Knights Templar, and other groups of Medieval origin.
