Class Description

October 22: Part 1 -- Nag Hammadi Library and The Gospel of Thomas:  50+ texts found in 1945 in a cave in the desert near Nag Hammadi, Egypt, are known as the Nag Hammadi Library.  The Gospel of Thomas is the most well-known of these “lost Gospels.” and is “the clearest guide we have to the vision of the world’s supreme mystical revolutionary, the teacher known as Jesus.”  

November 5: Part 2 – The Gospel of Mary Magdalene presents Jesus as the Teacher and the teaching he transmits contains the knowledge necessary for the reintegration of human beings with themselves and with their Source and Principle . . .” The Gospel of Judas is a Gnostic gospel found in the 1970s in Middle Egypt. It shows a different picture than the canonical Gospels do in that Judas was only doing what Jesus asked him to do – to help him get out of this world so he could return to the Source.
