Competing Revelations from Christ
Lecture no. 16 from the course: Gnosticism: From Nag Hammadi to the Gospel of Judas
Taught by Professor David Brakke | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses
The Nag Hammadi codices contain numerous texts called “revelations” or “secret books.” Here, explore three such texts, the Revelation of Paul, the Revelation of Peter, and the Secret Book of James, as they propound theological views that challenged and in some cases sharply criticized the emerging orthodox church and its leaders.
