The Gnostics Add Video


The internet has become a platform of information regarding this early belief, however, not all of these sources are correct and perhaps arise out of misconceptions regarding their doctrine - The Nag Hammadi scriptures.

This series will elucidate each tractate found within the Thirteen papyrus codices of the Nag Hammadi scriptures, totaling 52 different texts (or books), 41 of which were never previously extant. I will also provide exegesis of early church fathers, such as Ignatius, Irenaeus and Hippolytus of Rome-amongst others-and illustrate how why they determined these ideologies, so different from the early Orthodox Christian church, as heretical.

Furthermore, many of the early church fathers themselves, such as Eusebius and Origen wrote gnostic ideas within their extant texts. I will also examine the only two 'true' Gnostic sects, known as the Sethians and Valentinians (named after Valentinius) and how their belief of 'gnosis' or 'knowledge' separated them from other sects who were claiming to be gnostic, but truly weren't, such as the Marcionites.
