Holy Thursday - no talking during "The Last Supper?"

Easily, the most hyped movie of the year has to be "The Da Vinci Code."

In recent weeks, we have heard about the Dan Brown lawsuit with the authors of "Holy Blood, Holy Grail."
Given that today is Holy Thursday, there has been no mention of Leonardo Da Vinci's famous fresco,"The Last Supper" http://www.eskimo.com/~rwb/images/europe/11-milan-last-supper.jpg . If you have read the book, you know that this fresco unlocks a mysterious clue.

The mainstream media has featured a story that sympathizes with Judas Escariot.
One theory says that Jesus told Judas to betray him.
My first class as a freshman at Florida State University was "Introduction to New Testament" with Professor John Priest and Professor John Carey. http://www.fsu.edu/~religion/news/anniversary.htm Besides their Ivy League training, these two professors were great lecturers. Professor Carey mentioned on scholarly theory that on the 3rd day, the women went to Jesus tomb, but got lost and could not find their way home. As Professor Carey said to his students;
"Being a Harvard man, I am glad that theory was created by Yale scholars!"

Theories are for one's head.
In this age of information implosion, one has to trust their heart to sort out these theories that are not necessarily Gospel.
