9781904555148: The Gospel of Jesus: In Search of His Original Teachings (Origins of Christianity)

An inspirational encounter with the world of Christ, this book is an uplifting study of the man, his times and his teaching. This volume reveals how the true meaning of Jesus' teachings, as found in the canonical gospels and many of the ancient apocryphal and other early Christian texts, is that of the ageless, eternal and mystic path to God. Exhaustively researched -- from Old and New Testament writings, the Dead Sea Scrolls, the writings of the Greek mystics, the Gnostics, the Mandaeans, the Manichaeans and other mystics of Jesus' era -- The Gospel of Jesus reflects the yearning of all Christians and seekers throughout the centuries to penetrate the unresolved mysteries of their faith and attain a direct, personal mystic experience of God.

Review:

"In this work, John Davvidson has probed the origins of Christianity in a provocative and illuminating way. By carrying us back to our beginnings, we see both the brilliance of essential Christianity and the distortions through which this tradition has been filtered through the ages. It is a goldmine of new insights." -- Rt. Rev. John Shelby Spong
