The Gospel Of Simon

During the early centuries of Christianity, there was believed to be a "secret knowledge" that Jesus had shared with his disciples. Some Christian sects, notably the Gnostics, claimed to have and practice these sacred mysteries. Now for the first time, this secret knowledge is revealed in The Gospel of Simon: Revelation of the Sacred Mysteries. A battle raged for the first few centuries within the Christian community, between the more revolutionary, Gnostic like sects and those sects with a more traditional approach to religion. Ultimately, the orthodox Catholic sects, in alignment with the Roman Empire, prevailed; purging and destroying the "hidden" books that told the story of the secret teachings of Jesus. A clear challenge to the Christian establishment, this book will likely be condemned as a heretical perversion. Read it if you dare; but be prepared to be offended if you hold traditional Christian beliefs. For those with an open mind, be prepared to view Christianity in a whole new way.

This book provides the missing pieces to the jigsaw puzzle we call Jesus. The missing pieces are so different from the existing pieces present in the Gospels of the New Testament that a new and unfamiliar picture of Jesus emerges. Without this book, and especially the Gospel of Simon of Cyrene, it is impossible to understand Jesus and his life. What has come before is rendered irrelevant and incoherent. For example, the dominant culture in the Roman Empire and Judea was Greek no Jewish. Or that Jesus believed in Judaism in terms of Greek philosophy. So much we as Catholics hear about our church comes from Protestant sources without such information being identified as such. Popular opinions become accepted as fact when it is not challenged as false. The author presents primary source material which will clearly seperate fact from fiction. Once the readers read the words of Jesus and his deeds in this book, they will understand the man and his mission. The testimony of the early church fathers is there for anyone to read and comprehend the Catholic nature of the early church. Truly, this book has in it what every Catholic should know about their faith and church.

Dare to explore the long lost gospel of Simon Peter, the rock, which was more highly esteemed by early Christians than a couple of the other Biblical gospels, according to some theologians. And it's also a fact that this holy gospel gives some fantastic insights into the good news that the others do not. Therefore, it's a very wise move for any follower of our Lord of Evermore to become enlightened to this historical piece that's printed with utter magnificence. And as an extra special bonus the gospel of James the Righteous is also included herein, so believers can be twice as blessed with a double dose of holiness that exalts Jesus Christ Almighty in a truly extraordinary way. So buckle on up, and prepare your serching hearts to go on a speechless journey into the incredible. For these are some awesomel literary guides to our Lord's overflowing greatness which has made Him alone into earth's central figure all throughout the ages. Neither is there any lover of our Hero of Heroes that could ever read this most amazing offering and be able to deny the incredible impact that these gospels should have on the church. Neither could any hardened hearts ever possibly remain in that awful condition if their owners choose to be open minded enough to expose themselves to the marvelous kind of little known amazements that are included herein. 'tis therefore the great day at last for some fantastic old literature to make a badly needed comeback. And it's also the long awaited day of great expectations to be made manifest for anyone who craves such blessings to overcome their ever needful souls. And it's with the greatest delight that such classics are now finally being amplified anew. May they resound therefore all throughout the heavens; May they also echo all throughout the low roads, the high roads, and every other pathway under our most attentive Father of Lights. Then the faithful few of our Icon of Icons my boldly say with a very cheerful smile that the great time has finally come forth when many lost souls may be kept off of the wide road that leads towards destruction. For it is a great truth indeed, that the anointed word of God flows like some great and mighty rivers of heavenly instruction as the following pages are lovingly turned. For this is the blessed hour for every adopted son of God to exalt our Lion of Judah and a very happy time for them to extol and magnify the gift of salvation which that Son of Holiness so freely offers unto every hungry soul who desires the kind of spiritual food that can never be found in any other books aside from these and the rest of the New Testament. So be ready now to be blessed in a very special way that could never even be contained in a gigantic package of thankfulness. And be ready to rejoice as well. For our Eternal Redemption, the Living Word of God has fully authorized His disciples Peter and James to disclose some extremely remarkable things that's been mute for much too long. Selah.
