it's like the Gospel of Judas and of Mary Magdalene - they were written around the same time than all the other Gospels or so, and yet they are rejected by the Church because it changes how Mary Magdalene was portrayed - in her Gospel, she is well-versed, and is seen teaching the other disciples. And in The Gospel of Judas, Jesus asked Judas to betray him because it must be done.
People say - it's not in the Bible so it cannot be true. But do people realize that it was the Roman Government and bishops together that chose what texts would go into the Bible and then burnt the rest of the texts??? Do people realize that so many texts of Jesus did not end in the Bible because the Bishops and Roman Government did not understand them - they did now understand the own words of Jesus? And so they were then declared "heretical".. That the texts that were put in the Bible were voted on and only what they could understand?
There is so much more to Jesus' story than what is commonly known - a deep message of love and that talks about self-knowledge.
"Know yourself" = Gnosis is a universal knowledge - it is within each one of us. The knowledge of the Heart - and we all have one, don't we?
Thanks for this article - it's great to see this out-there.
