Jackson Snyder Presents CLassic Christian Gnosticism, the “Gnostic” Gospels, Gnostic Theology and History and how this wayward system still effects Christianity, Kabbalistic Judaism and New Age Movements today. Gnosticism is the quest for the secret occult knowledge that saves; that is, salvation comes by knowing the passwords to the spiritual word. Oxyrhynchus and Nag Hammadi are ruins in Egypt where caches of hitherto unknown Christian writings were discovered in the first half of the 20th century, commonly known as the ‘Gnostic Gospels.’ We look at the Nicene Council of 325 and the reaction to that in Christian Africa – the hiding of manuscripts that did not conform to the new Creed. The conversion of Druids in Britain, some of which are mentioned in the letters of Paul. Athanasius and his Trinitarian creed. And finally the beginning of a discussion on the 114 sayings of Jesus found in the amazing Gospel of Thomas.
