Gnosis “The Lost Gospels” by Anglican Priest Pete Owen Jones

Documentary presented by Anglican priest Pete Owen Jones which explores the huge number of ancient Christian texts that didn’t make it into the New Testament. Shocking and challenging, these were works in which Jesus didn’t die, took revenge on his enemies and kissed Mary Magdalene on the mouth – a Jesus unrecognisable from that found in the traditional books of the New Testament.

Pete travels through Egypt and the former Roman Empire looking at the emerging evidence of a Christian world that’s very different to the one we know, and discovers that aside from the gospels of Mark, Matthew, Luke and John, there were over seventy gospels, acts, letters and apocalypses, all circulating in the early Church.

Through these lost Gospels, Pete reconstructs the intense intellectual and political struggles for orthodoxy that was fought in the early centuries of Christianity, a battle involving different Christian sects, each convinced that their gospels were true and sacred.

The worldwide success of Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code sparked new interest, as well as wild and misguided speculation about the origins of the Christian faith. Owen Jones sets out the context in which heretical texts like the Gospel of Mary emerged. He also strikes a cautionary note – if these lost gospels had been allowed to flourish, Christianity may well have faced an uncertain future, or perhaps not survived at all.

A Born Again Philosophy

I was born once, and that alone is not enough to grasp a new concept within philosophy. It is the mind-state, a person’s karma which allows them to grasp certain things. Things were a bit simpler in my time, but yet distractions were always there–today we have more machines, technologies and more and more distracting energies blinding us to a primary purpose. Is your purpose just to suffer? Suffering always seem to be due from a cause–my eyes weren’t opened, not listening to my parents etc. So I suffered because of it. I’ve learned a lot of things in my life so far, but yet I think I’m far from being born again.

Perfecting Perfect Perfection

The idea of perfection is rarely looked at in a broader scope–taking us to places we have already been, but have never seen. Let me explain: the person that says: “Ohhh, I have never looked at it that way before,” has finally seen something, a place, a feeling that has always been there but not observed. Let me ask you: “what is perfection?” One can do a quick internet search to get plenty of definitions of perfection, but neither are perfect explanations and neither will I offer you one here. I will offer something else to you, a puzzle, an idea which I’d like to call perfecting perfect perfection.

Perfecting Perfect Perfection?

Considering the idea of Godly perfection; it’s all-knowing, all-powerful ways of coping with itself and everything else—life must be awful for such a deity, for there would be nothing to do but boss around and command lesser beings. But wait! This is only our religious understanding of perfection, and it only applies to a God, or a Higher Being per se.
