The alternative writings about Jesus bear the names of such prominent early Christians as Peter, Thomas, Mary Magdalene, Judas, James, and Andrew. Some of these writings purport to contain “secret” teachings of Jesus, to recount his childhood or to fill in other gaps in the story of Jesus. Some contradict the New Testament. What should informed believers and nonbelievers make of them? Were they written by disciples of Jesus as they claim? How do they compare with the New Testament gospels? Are these works “lost gospels” or “false gospels”?
In this thought-provoking DVD, top scholars of early Christian writings answer these and other crucial questions. They discuss the relationship between these works and the New Testament. The experts also explore Gnostic writings such as the “Gospel of Thomas” and the “Gospel of Judas”, and they reveal startling facts about the groups who composed them. Anyone who is interested in the truth about Jesus and the early Church must see Lost Gospels or False Gospels?
