Review Lost Christianities: The Battles for Scripture and the Faiths We Never Knew

Lost Christianities: The Battles for Scripture and the Faiths We Never Knew Summary Û 2 The early Christian Church was a chaos of contending beliefs Some groups of Christians claimed that there was not one God but two or twelve or thirty Some believed that the world had not been created by God but by a lesser ignorant deity Certain sects maintained that Jesus was human but not divine while others said he was divine but not human In Lost Christianities Bart D Ehrman offers a fascinating look at these early forms of Christianity and shows how they came to be suppressed reformed or forgotten All of these groups insisted that they upheld the teachings of. Although not a theist in any manner of speaking I have an extensive library of books on various religions and sects This book was an recommendation based on my purchasing history and was one of the most interesting and informative books that I have ever read Needless to say it supported and confirmed many of the things I already knew but in addition it gave thoughts and explanations on many of the facets of Christianity that had been a bit muddy in my mind One of the interesting speculations contained in this book is what the effect on the world of different winners amongst the many and varied interpretations by the plethora of Christian sects in the first few centuries might have been It has taken me a number of days to read this book not because it is a difficult read far from it but because it has been so thought provoking and necessitated further corroboration from elsewhere in my library and occasionally reference to my Oxford dictionary A truly exceptional book

Lost Christianities: The Battles for Scripture and the Faiths We Never Knew Summary Û 2 Jesus and his apostles and they all possessed writings that bore out their claims books reputedly produced by Jesus's own followers Modern archaeological work has recovered a number of key texts and as Ehrman shows these spectacular discoveries reveal religious diversity that says much about the ways in which history gets written by the winners Ehrman's discussion ranges from considerations of various lost scriptures including forged gospels supposedly written by Simon Peter Jesus's closest disciple and Judas Thomas Jesus's alleged twin brother to the disparate b. This book takes a broad look at the canon of the New Testament ie the process whereby books were gradually and then finally established by the 5th Century as the ones to be included therein and forms a study of the works that were left out and the various early Christian sects that supported themHis research details an early Christian world of confusion with the words of the disciples who were with Jesus and the apostles who preached and wrote about him being taken and subjectively interpreted by a multitude of contemporary groups As well as disparate beliefs on how much of their indigenous Jewish heritage beliefs and practices these new Christians should retain many groups were also influenced by things like Gnosticism and existing contemporary Greek thinking and philosophy such as that of the neo Pythagoreans and the StoicsThus while we are yet to have Christians a word not yet in use at the time of many of these groups we are introduced to the Nazareans Carpocratians Docetics Ebionites Marcosians Marcionites Montanists various types of Gnostics and those with the set of beliefs that the author terms proto Orthodoxy which eventually evolved to become Roman CatholicismMany of these groups used the gospels that were available to them and many of these have either not survived at all or not survived as part of the modern Christian canon only being rediscovered with archaeological finds hundreds of years later such as the Nag Hammadi scrollsMany of the Christian sects and groups used the names of Jesus disciples or the apostles as the author of their texts in order that they might get a wider circulation technically a forgery while still being genuine texts of that particular Christian sect In other cases the author gives examples of clear forgeries for example the senior churchman who was caught red handed writing a third book of Corinthians and was disciplined henceforthThe sheer variety of beliefs in early Christianity is fascinating though given the circumstances it s easy to see how a Jewish teacher such as Jesus provides new teachings to his Jewish followers and after his death there spring up so many groups believing slightly different things about what he meant by his teachings and what his death meant With only the Old Testament to go by as their holy book there were various opinions on whether Jesus was the Messiah or not and if so what type whether his followers were now a new religion that no longer needed to practice circumcision and could they now eat pork Was Jesus God as well as his Son and all the uestions pertaining to the mystery of the concept of Father Son and Holy Spirit long before a standard concept of the Holy Trinity had been established and so onA very enjoyable read and a fascinating insight into the beliefs of the early Christians before the Church finally decided what should and shouldn t be kept out of the New Testament various early regional churches had their own canon processes and as a result many ended up with different texts altogether in their New Testaments ranging from 11 to 22 books and before the religion became regulated into one coherent belief system the others being subsumed and vanishing into history

Lost Christianities: The Battles for Scripture and the Faiths We Never Knew Summary Û 2 Eliefs of such groups as the Jewish Christian Ebionites the anti Jewish Marcionites and various Gnostic sects Ehrman examines in depth the battles that raged between proto orthodox Christians those who eventually compiled the canonical books of the New Testament and standardized Christian belief and the groups they denounced as heretics and ultimately overcame Scrupulously researched and lucidly written Lost Christianities is an eye opening account of politics power and the clash of ideas among Christians in the decades before one group came to see its views preva. This was a well written and thoroughly enjoyable review of very early Christianities The plural is Ehrman s own use and essential to the theme of the book in which he describes in great detail the extraordinary divergence of early Christian movements showing how what is now orthodoxy won out amongst a range of views Obviously the majority of the sources are those tracts such as Irenaeus and Tertullian who condemn the losing forms now considered heretical but Ehrman s point here is that the weren t heresies in the modern sense because there was no orthodoxy against which to measure themselves and the Nag Hammadi library but I was surprised by how much can also be eked out by close and impartial reading of the accepted canonBest read in conjunction with his Lost Scriptures book which provides readable translations of those now non canonical books which have been preserved thus making it the most in accurately named volume imaginable
