9780007100712: Jesus and the Goddess: The secret teachings of the original Christians

Decoding the extraordinary myths of Jesus and the Goddess.

This exciting new work of groundbreaking scholarship from the authors of The Jesus Mysteries widens the debate on the relationship between Christianity and Paganism.

No strangers to controversy, Tim Freke and Peter Gandy decode the extraordinary myths of Jesus and the Goddess, and reveal startling new evidence of the profound relationship between the two. This unlocks the secret knowledge of Gnosis, or Christian mysticism, and demonstrates the relevance of these teachings to us today.

Controversial statements such as ‘Christianity is Jewish Paganism’ are bound to cause a stir.

The Jesus Mysteries is not a prerequisite for Jesus and the Goddess. It is a fascinating read for all those interested in decoding religion, fans of ancient wisdom, Christians, Pagans, and those who are keen to take on the idea of the Goddess.

Review:

Book of the year
Fiona Pith-Kethley on The Jesus Mysteries, THE DAILY TELEGRAPH

From the Back Cover:

For the original Christians the 'gospel' or 'good news' was not a story written in a book. The good news is that a complete transformation of consciousness is possible. The good news is that there is a way to transcend suffering. The good news is that there is a natural state of happiness which is our birthright. This is the gospel of absolute freedom. It is not a set of rules which we must follow to become 'good'. It is about discovering our own essential nature, which is good already, so that we can live spontaneously. This gospel holds out the extraordinary promise that those who understand it 'will not taste death'. But immortality is not privileged access to heaven as reward for living an upright life. It is the immediate realisation, right here and now, of our true identity, which was never born and so can never die.
