Gnosticism and the Canon of Scripture – CHS 017

Gnosticism and the Canon of Scripture

Why did marginalized Christian groups add books to the canon of Scripture? In this episode we explore the rise of the various first and second-century Gnostic groups and their attempts to compose new Gospels and other sacred documents. Among other things, we treat Gnostic understandings of scripture, reality and their account of the origins of the universe. We also outline some of the major responses formulated by the Church in response to the Gnostic challenge.
