Publisher's Description

In December 1945, two Egyptian fellahin, digging for natural fertilizer in the Nile River valley unearthed a sealed storage jar. The jar proved to hold treasure of an unexpected sort: a collection of some fifty-two ancient manuscripts, most of which reflect the teachings of a mystical religious movement we call Gnosticism (from the Greek word gnosis, "knowledge"). The texts are also, with few exceptions, Christian documents, and thus they provide us with valuable new information about the character of the early church, and about the Gnostic Christians within the church.

In this volume, Marvin W. Meyer has produced a new English translation for general readers of four of the most important and revealing of these early Christian texts -- the Secret Book of James, the Gospel of Thomas, the Book of Thomas, and the Secret Book of John.

Author Bio

Dr. Meyer, a scholar long familiar with the Nag Hammadi texts, offers here a fresh and lively translation that anyone intrigued to learn more about these texts will welcome."

    No true follower of the Lord Jesus Christ should ever read or have anything to do with this book or the "Gospels" it claims to study. "Jesus said to them; I am the Way, the Truth and the Life: no one comes to the Father but by Me" That verse found in the Gospel of John is truth. These writings (The secret teachings of Jesus) are in direct opposition to this. Stick with the Bible.
