One thought on “The Gnostic Gospels”

  1. Hi Neil,

    Last night, I had a chance to listen to “The Missing Gospels: By Dr. Darrell Bock” on Moody Radio.

    In speaking about these “missing gospels” – Dr. Bock put it very nicely:

    These so called "Missing Books" never had a chance of making it to the cannon. Not because of their views on Jesus but because of their views on God. Gnosticism has a flawed view of God. God is not seen as a Good Creator. Moreover, Gnosticism says that Creation was the result of a mistake. In Contrast, Judaism says God created the world. And Christianity came out of Judaism; thus, these 'missing books' never had a chance [paraphrasing].
