The Gnostic Gospel of Truth

Lecture no. 6 from the course: Lost Christianities: Christian Scriptures and the Battles over Authentication

 The Gnostic Gospel of Truth

Taught by Professor Bart D. Ehrman | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

One of the most intriguing documents from the Nag Hammadi library is the Gnostic Gospel of Truth. It does not relate stories about the life of Jesus, but instead celebrates the "good news" that Jesus brought. The views of God, the world, Christ, and salvation here stand in stark contrast with those that became orthodox within Christianity.
