I recorded this recently and it’s a cracker – a substantial part of most branches of modern Christianity is/are based on a very selective group of ancient scriptures. Ever heard of the Gospel of Mary (Magdalene)? The Gospel of Peter? The Gospel of Philip? Then you may find this interesting… video.google.co.uk/v… Anglican priest Pete Owen Jones 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. Pete travels through Egypt and the former Roman Empire looking at the evidence of a Christian world very different to the one we know, and finds over seventy gospels, acts, letters and apocalypses all circulating in the early Church.
