Lost Gospels (Gnostic)

ancient_scrolls

I was watching a broadcast on the National Geographic Channel tonight called “The Gospel of Judas”.  This sparked a curiosity into discovering a little more information about the “Lost Books” of the New Testament.

The purpose of this specific Blog Post is to try and list out those books with any additional study materials.  We need to seek guidance from the Holy Spirit for their authenticity and merit.  

I have found a site that claims there is a total of 55 such lost “Gnostic Gospels”.

Here’s a little excerpt from “Christian Broadcast Network” online which correlates to what was mentioned in tonight’s National Geographic show:

“We have 52 books that are not in our Bible from the second and third centuries that give evidence of a kind of Christianity that is an attempt to meld Greco-Roman philosophy and Christianity – and to make Christianity more palatable to a Greco-Roman world. That is really what those texts are about. We actually dug them up in 1945 (near Nag Hammadi, Egypt). So, they have been around for just over 60 years. We have known about them since the time of Irenaeus because he wrote about them in 180 A.D.”

  1. This is an excellent opportunity for people to ask the Holy Spirit to let them know if any of these are True. If there isn’t peace when reading any of these, then stop and pray; there likely is deception there. If there is peace, then ask the Holy Spirit to confirm through the Scriptures.

    Some people may not be able to read any of these and that’s absolutely ok. Some may want to find out what these say, in case the topic of these comes up; if so, he/she will have reviewed them with the Holy Spirit and will be able to bring truth. Either: “yes I read that, but it does not line up with Scriptures” or . . “It’s interesting, and may be similar to what is written in the Bible, but I would view that as more of a possible historical document, rather than the inspired Written Word of God”

    Thank you for sharing this info.
