GNOSIS “Secret Lives of Jesus”

27 Feb

Why were these texts buried — and why have they remained virtually unknown for nearly 2,000 years?

Their suppression as banned documents, and their burial on the cliff at Nag Hammadi, it turns out, were both part of a struggle critical for the formation of early Christianity.

The Nag Hammadi texts, and others like them, which circulated at the beginning of the Christian era, were denounced as heresy by orthodox Christians in the middle of the second century.

We have long known that many early followers of Christ were condemned by other Christians as heretics, but nearly all we knew about them came from what their opponents wrote attacking them.”

[Elaine Pagels, The Gnostic Gospels, (New York: Vintage, 1989)
