Gnostic Bible Stories

Lecture no. 6 from the course: Gnosticism: From Nag Hammadi to the Gospel of Judas

Gnostic Bible Stories

Taught by Professor David Brakke | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

The Gnostic texts The Revelation of Adam and The Reality of the Rulers rewrite the early chapters of Genesis. Examine how the texts reformulate the story of the Creation, Noah and the Flood, and the question of who will be saved, placing the Gnostics themselves within Genesis and linking the stories to their salvation.
