Full DescriptionGospel Of Judas And Other Gnostic Secrets Revealed - Why all the fascination about the Gospel of Judas? Who were the Gnostics and why did the early church reject their views? What was the secret enlightenment that the Gnostics claimed? How is it the Gnostics seem to just keep coming back?
The recent discovery of a mystical text buried for centuries beneath the sands of Egypt and a major television documentary about that find cast new light on the ancient heresy of Gnosticism. The text is known as “The Gospel of Judas.”
• Judas Iscariot was not the traitor recorded in the canonical Gospels, but was a spiritual hero, Christ's favorite disciple.
• Cain was fulfilling the will of God by killing his brother Abel.
• An evil and malicious God has created the world and all physical things.
• Jesus used his divine powers to hurt or destroy those who angered him.
• Christ and Jesus were two separate beings.
• Spiritual truths are concealed as secrets given only to the enlightened.
This five-part video series provides an enlightening Bible-based journey to uncover the truth behind the supposed "secrets" of Gnosticism. Through interviews with leading historians and scholars and the testimonies of the Gospel writers and the early Church Fathers, we examine how Gnostic beliefs originated, their influence on the Church, and their popularity and resurgence today.
This DVD also includes questions for small groups and is an excellent source for Bible study and historical research.
Lost Gospels Or False Gospels - Christians and many non-Christians have long accepted Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John - the four gospels of the New Testament - as the only reliable accounts of the life and teaching of Jesus of Nazareth. Recent media stories and certain best-selling books have alerted the public to alternative writings about Jesus, leading many people - including many believers - to wonder why we should consider only the four New Testament gospels as "gospel truth."
The alternative writings about Jesus bear the names of such prominent early Christians as Peter, Thomas, Mary Magdalene, Judas, James and Andrew. Some of these writings purport to contain "secret" teachings of Jesus, to recount his childhood or to fill in other gaps in the story of Jesus. Some contradict the New Testament. What should informed believers and nonbelievers make of them? Were they written by disciples of Jesus as they claim? How do they compare with the New Testament gospels? Are these works "lost gospels" or "false gospels."
In this thought-provoking film, top scholars of early Christian writings answer these and other crucial questions. They discuss the relationship between these works and the New Testament. The experts also explore Gnostic writings such as the "Gospel of Thomas" and the "Gospel of Judas", and they reveal startling facts about the groups who composed them. Anyone who is interested in the truth about Jesus and the early Church must see Lost Gospels Or False Gospels?
