98. Yes, you are right, and I knew that
I'm sorry if my post was not clear. The Holy Blood authors appeared to have been gulled by Plantard along with everybody else. (He was a very strange piece of work; Plantard that is.)

There has been speculation on Jesus' life for centuries. I remember when I was a kid a book came out insisting that Jesus had escaped to Japan after surviving the crucifixion, fathered many children (though not with Mary Magdalene) and died of old age.

I suspect there will be more theories in years to come. And, without any objective proof, one could also argue that the life depicted in the New testament is also someone's "theory."
