Kathleen McGowan on the History Channel - Dec 4, 2013

Kathleen McGowan on The History Channel

“I am honored and thrilled to have had such a huge role in the “Forbidden Scriptures” episode of the History Channel‘s new show, Bible Secrets Revealed. It was and is a dream come true to discuss openly these topics which would have all been cause for execution at so many times in the past 2000 years – the importance of Mary Magdalene as the keeper of sacred wisdom and the true successor of Jesus, Asherah as God’s female counterpart and equal, the benevolent nature of God. It is the first time on television, that I am aware of at least, for discussion of texts as controversial as the Testimony of Truth, the Apocalypse of Peter and the Life of Adam and Eve.

My heartfelt thanks to the History Channel and the producers at Prometheus Entertainment for allowing me to have such a strong presence and opinion on this show, and for being the sole “non-academic” voice in the mix. If you missed the airing of “Forbidden Scriptures” last week, there will be an encore showing of it this Wednesday, December 4, prior to the new episode, “The Real Jesus.” I am told that I appear in the new episode as well, but as yet I do not know in what capacity, so let’s watch and find out!”
