Publisher Description

The Nag Hammadi Scriptures, edited by Marvin Meyer, is the most complete, up-to-date, one-volume, English-language edition of the renowned library of Gnostic manuscripts discovered in Egypt in 1945, which rivaled the Dead Sea Scrolls find in significance. It includes the Gospel of Thomas, the Gospel of Mary, and the recently discovered Gospel of Judas, as well as other Gnostic gospels and sacred texts. This volume also includes introductory essays, notes, tables, glossary, index, etc. to help the reader understand the context and contemporary significance of these texts which have shed new light on early Christianity and ancient thought. The compilation of ancient manuscripts that constitute The Nag Hammadi Scriptures is a discovery that challenges everything we thought we knew about the early Christian church, ancient Judaism, and Greco-Roman religions.

Jesus Christ

Life Changer! I knew our Holy Bible throughout old & New Testament’s had inconsistencies, and it would say or make comment’s and then leave us hanging by never seemingly finish what it had started. So with the Gnostic scriptures we can surmise that for instance when Jesus had to go and be away and alone from the huge crowds of Christians that logically he had to meditate, and he would have needed to get away and alone to meditate. This certainly is “the good news of Jesus”.
