At our next Narthex meeting we will start looking into the Secret Book of John. The Secret Book of John, also referred to as the Apocryphon of John, is perhaps the most significant gnostic text discovered thus far. It is one of the earliest renderings of a gnostic cosmology and one of the most intriguing guides to the spiritual journey of the human soul.
Starting this month, we will be embarking on an in-depth study of the Secret Book of John. We will slowly explore the text over several sessions and then discuss what to do with it, what it means for the spiritual journey, and how it might ask us to respond. However, our first conversation will be mostly preliminaries and setting the scene.
