We use the acronym DVC in place of "The Da Vinci Code" below.

The DVC book, and probably the movie as well, contains much information that is in conflict with historical Christian beliefs For example:

bullet

Jesus is portrayed as a human prophet, not a God who is one person of the Trinity.

bullet

Jesus divinity was voted upon at the Council of Nicea.

bullet

Jesus did not die on the cross.

bullet

He survived, married Mary Magdalene.

bullet

Their children started a blood line that survives today.

bullet

The gospels are unreliable.

Christian groups are reacting in different ways to the book and movie. Some have ignored them; others consider them to be a magnificent opportunity to carry out the Great Commission through evangelization; still others have attacked the content of the book and movie in an attempt to prove what they believe to be true.

Some religious resources are listed below:
