Even though this class about gnosticism is really difficult, I’m still happy that I’m taking it and I will do my best to finish the assignments on time. Not only is the subject interesting in itself, the class has also helped me a little with the fantasy novel I’m planning to write!
The Secret Family of Jesus
I watched a documentary today that was both historically and religiously interesting. It was about Jesus’ kinship with John the Baptist, Jesus’ half-brother Jacob (according to this documentary he was a son of Joseph from an earlier relationship), and about how the Christian Church has tried to conceal for ages that is was actually Jacob and the rest of Jesus’ family who were the leaders of the new Christians.
