Description

The Gnostic Gospels are popularly held as alternate and mysterious historical accounts of the person of Jesus Christ, particularly in films and novels such as The DaVinci Code, among others. Dr. Kenneth Calvert points out that in reality, Gnosticism’s main aim was to force the person and message of Christ into a familiar, Platonic philosophical framework. The fundamental issue with this interpretation of Christ is that, as Platonism rejects the material world, it cannot accept an incarnate deity.
