The Gospel of Philip remains one of the most insightful yet approachable texts from the Nag Hammadi library. This Valentinian work grants deep understanding into the culture and theology of ancient Gnosticism, from precise rituals to the intimate relationship between Jesus and Mary Magdalene. We explore the history, doctrines, and layers of meaning of this lost gospel – dealing with the best available scholarship as well as a new, exciting translation. Is the Gospel of Philip even Gnostic or is it part of a greater, mystic Christianity that was repressed by orthodoxy? Can we find Gnosis in the passages or is it more about the restoration of life? These and more answers are subtle but astounding.

Astral Guest — Dr. James Brantingham, author of The Gospel of Philip: A New Translation.
