Description

John's Gospel and the Formula behind the Myth of Jesus is about a set of ideas that largely dictated the form and content of John's Gospel, and profoundly influenced the three Synoptic Gospels. Far from the simple narrative it seems to be, John's Gospel is a highly complex work geared to the depiction of Jesus as a type of cosmic figure. To this end its author draws on astrology, the annual cycle of Jewish festivals, symbolism taken from the Qabalah, and a section of Genesis. The book examines clues that Qabalah and Hellenestic astrology were already in existence at the time of writing of Genesis. John's Gospel and the Formula behind the Myth of Jesus also looks at evidence that the true nature of John's Gospel has been known for some time.
