Well, it's anyone's opinion in here.. But for me, it's Mary. I just won't expound my reasons, because it's just what i believe and I don't want to offend others..

Leonardo Da Vinci meant it to be Mary Magdalene, but the Church at the time promoted the lie that it was John, the disciple whom Jesus loved. I haven't read Dan Brown's book, but have seen the movie, which was a tiny, tiny tip of a very big iceberg. Leonardo Da Vinci was a member of those enlightened scientists, artists, inventors, etc, who called themselves the "Illuminati". He was one of many who were hunted for centuries by the Christian Church for the truths that he held about the true story of Jesus & his teachings & practices. This painting was just one instance that has received much publicity in recent times. It's best if you read the opinions of Biblical Scholars & Theologians of the last few centuries regarding this matter, rather than just relying on one Author who may or may not be the best qualified to give a decisive answer on the subject. The comments above me are very true. The findings on this matter & a great many others like it, have the power to turn the Church on its head. We should examine deeply & sincerely if everything we know about Mary Magdalene & Jesus is true. One article on the matter appeared in The Gazette, written by Victor Greto that might make a good starting point for some: www.northernway.org/mmag.html To get the true story of Jesus the Nazarene & Mary Magdalene requires us to re-examine everything we thought we knew about the Roman Empire & the Roman Catholic Church in the first century. Emperor Claudius's Freedmen, the people behind the policies of The Golden Age of Rome, were not what - or whom - they claimed to be. These people fully intended their Divine Deception be uncovered in due time. And in this age of high-speed information, "due time" has come.

Thanks for the insights veganbliss, I was very interested about the idea about what Da Vinci is trying to present us.

First off, welcome to mylot iceman. Just a bit of advice, when starting a discussion you will get better responses if you DO let us know what you think about your own question and why. Mylot is meant to be taken as a conversation in my opinion- and if you re-read your statement...it seems that you are only looking for an answer rather than a healthy debate (which is bound to happen on mylot when it comes to religious views). Obviously I do not know for sure- but my opinion leans towards it being Mary Magdaline. I believe this because of my own research on the subject. I also believe the bible was terribly mistranslated and because of this many of the things we have been taught about the bible are wrong.

don't worry 3honor- I handled it for both of us Iceman: I believe that something huge is being hidden for some reason or another and that is a woman besides him. I think that if this secret gets out- no matter what it may be- it may rock the very foundations of Christianity and its beliefs. Thanks for giving us your thoughts- as you can see...it definitely makes for better conversation :) Have fun here on mylot and request me as a friend if you like.

It is just a long-haired, youthful John like in countless other paintings: http://home.arcor.de/berzelmayr/st-john.html

For me, it is John. I base this on my research and according to what I have learned on the habit and culture of Hebrews; and aside from that I learned that it is really John based on my knowledge on the bible as I studied it.
