Christians must know the truth to recognize lies.
The Da Vinci Code has taken the world by storm. This fictional book challenges our views of Jesus and the historical church. Because Brown uses so many genuine historical facts, it makes his outlandish claims sound more plausible. Many Christians have become confused because of his assertions.
This Bible study, based on a CHRISTIANITY TODAY article by Ben Witherington III, examines the claims Brown makes in his book, refuting them according to historical fact and Scripture.
