Jesus Christ ‘crippled’ a man’s son claims Biblical expert
Ancient texts claiming to tell the story of a different Christianity and Jesus Christ have repeatedly surfaced over the thousands of years since the religion came into being. Artefacts that have been presented to archaeologists and theologists have more often than not been identified as fakes. Some have gone under the radar, being adopted as the real thing, like a collection of Dead Sea Scrolls at the Museum of the Bible, Washington DC, that later turned out to be forgeries.
The most explosive series of stories were unearthed in northern Egypt in 1945, revealing a subversive Christ, shedding light on his childhood years.
The Gnostic Gospels were proved to be authentic and filled the gap between Jesus’ 12th and 30th years, quickly adopted by many scholars as stories that supplement the canonical gospels.
Other texts have been found, including those compiled by the early Christian Egyptian Gnostic teacher, Basilides.
His writings were, at the time, condemned for claiming that Jesus Christ had not died on the cross.
