This awesome 3-part documentary has just been released by the Gnostic Movement.

It explains what Gnosticism is, and delves into the history of Christian Gnosticism. In doing so, it begins to tell the story of how conventional Christianity was let astray and isn’t true to the actual teachings of Jesus.

The Christian Gnostics have emerged in different forms throughout history, walking the hidden path towards spiritual transformation. Starting with the early years of Christianity, this video explores the Gnostic origins of Jesus and his disciples, and the secret aspects of Jesus’ teachings. It tells how the theology of Paul of Tarsus diverged from the Gnostic teachings of Jesus and came to compete with the Church of Jerusalem, which was led by Jesus’ disciples.

With the fall of the Church of Jerusalem, Pauline Christianity became dominant. Those who knew and practiced the secret heart of Jesus’ teachings went underground — hidden from view but continuing their quest for spiritual enlightenment.

Christian Gnostics, such as the Knights Templar and the Cathars of the middle ages, were deemed heretics and faced lethal persecution from the church, which was then at the helm of a powerful empire. Despite their continued persecution, the Gnostics continued to emerge and strive, as individuals made efforts to seek knowledge and enlightenment.

It’s a very interesting little documentary!!
