ONLINE – Narthex meeting on Sunday 17 May 2020

At our next Narthex meetings we will work with and through 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.

This month, we will wrap-up our studies of the Secret Book of John where we will specifically look closer at the complexity of duality in the text and about its connections to other textual sources. We will also work through the five discussion questions outlined in the ‘Observations on the Text’ document, ready for download below. It would be good if you could already start thinking about possible answers to these questions beforehand in order to be prepared for the meeting and to allow for a more in depth discussion of the topic. If you are having trouble getting this document, please contact us via this this webpage or through our Facebook page.
