Nag Hammadi



Popularized by The Da Vinci Code, Nag Hammadi is a town in the north part of Egypt. In 1945, it was the site where a collection of ancient writings were discovered. This collection of Christian Gnosticism is often called the Nag Hammadi library.

Conspiracy theories say that early Christians attempted to destroy these writings since they contained secret teachings about Jesus and the church. Manuscripts include such works as the gospel of Philip, the complete gospel of Thomas, the gospel of Truth, the apocalypse of Adam, the acts of Peter and the Twelve Apostles, and the Apocryphon of John,


Should the manuscripts of Nag Hammadi be included in the Bible?
The Nag Hammadi scrolls are forgeries. They were not authored by whom they claim. For example, Apostle Peter did not write the acts of Peter. Nor did Thomas write the gospel of Thomas. These claims were made to offer legitimacy to the early church. Early church fathers did not accept the claims of these manuscripts and considered them fraudulent due to the contradictions between the Nag Hammadi library and the inspired books of the Bible.

WHAT DO YOU THINK? - We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
