Gnostic Gospels

The first Council of Nicaea in 325 AD had the result of making all Gnostic ideas heretical to the newly formed Christian church.

The following broadcasts (on Youtube) give Tom Harpur’s take on the early history of Christianity. This is also described in his book The Pagan Christ.

Thanks to Mriana for bringing these links to my attention on a post on Linda’s website.

It should be noted that acceptance of Harpur’s contention of a strong connection of the Jesus concept to the earlier existing Egyptian Sun God idea is not necessary for an appreciation of the Gnostic gospels themselves.
