The Nag Hammadi Codices Conspiracy: The Treatise On Resurrection

After explaining, only to those ‘with the ears to listen’, that John the Baptist was Elijah ‘raised from the dead’ (the Gospel of Matthew 11:14) in fulfillment of the Prophecy of Malachi (the Book of Malachi 3:23-24 and the Gospel of Matthew 10-12), Jesus stated “He who has ears, let him listen.”

But, unfortunately (and catastrophically), neither the Christian religious ‘authorities’ nor their gullible followers have the ‘ears to listen’ to this Truth; which is why thousands upon thousands of Christian religious ‘authorities’, and hundreds of millions of Christians follow the Egyptian-Pharisaical-aPauline doctrine of the physical raising of a dead body from the grave; whereas the several-orders-of-magnitude less numerous followers of Jesus—such as the Gnostics, the Albigensians and the Bogomiles—understood the Doctrine of “resurrection” taught by Jesus (and, later, by Mohammed) as a Doctrine of ‘Rebirth’.

Thus, quite clearly, one of the most dangerous of all of the Nag Hammadi Codices is the Treatise on Resurrection; because it clearly explains—again, only to those ‘with the ears to listen’—that Jesus did, in fact, teach the Doctrine of “resurrection” as a Doctrine of ‘Rebirth’; as is further explained by the following:

1) Probably one of the most important assertions of the Treatise on Resurrection is the assertion that there are, in fact, three resurrections instead of just one, as with the Pharisaical-aPauline doctrine of the physical raising of a dead body from the grave: a “physical” resurrection, a “psychic” resurrection, and a “spiritual” resurrection; the “physical” resurrection referring to physical ‘rebirth’, the “psychic” resurrection referring specifically to the revelation of the memories of previous lives, and the “spiritual” resurrection referring to the Revelation of the Memory (and the consciousness of man at the moment) of Creation (Genesis 2:7); that is, the non-dualistic, non-spatial, non-temporal “observing consciousness” Created ‘by and in the image of God’ (Genesis 1:27)

2) A second important assertion of the Treatise on Resurrection is that “There is one who believes among the philosophers who are in this world. At least he will arise. And let not the philosopher who is in this world have cause to believe that he is one who returns himself by himself—and that because of our faith.”

Commentary: The ‘philosopher who is in this world’ is Plato; who believed in a doctrine of ‘reincarnation’; a doctrine based upon the doctrine of an eternally-existent metaphysical ‘soul’—that is, a ‘soul’ which is assumed to have some inherent ‘power’ to ‘reincarnate’. Thus, the statement that the philosopher in the world should not “have cause to believe that he is one who returns himself by himself” has to do with the fact that, according to the Revelation and Doctrine of “resurrection”, it is not through any purported ‘power’ of any eternally-existent metaphysical ‘soul’; but, rather, through the Power of the Creator Himself that people are ‘raised from the dead’.

3) In addition to these assertions, there are other statements in the Treatise on Resurrection that refer not so much to the Revelation and Doctrine of “resurrection” itself; but, rather, to the belief in that Revelation. For example:

* “many are lacking faith in it, but there are a few who find it.” [rather than believe in it]

* “But if there is one who does not believe, he does not have the capacity to be persuaded.”

* “What, then, is the resurrection? It is always the disclosure of those who have risen.” [In other words, those who have not themselves received the Revelation of the “resurrection”, cannot possibly have any Knowledge of the “resurrection.]

* “…do not think the resurrection is an illusion. It is no illusion, but it is truth. Indeed it is more fitting to say that the world is an illusion, rather than the resurrection which has come into being through our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.”

[These passages, of course, echo and parallel the discussions of the Buddhist esotericists, who also have both knowledge of the memories of previous lives and a direct experience of the consciousness by which are conveyed the memories of previous lives.]

* And, finally: “Do not be jealous of anyone who is in your number when he is able to help.”

[In other words, the truth be told, there is a certain amount of jealousy which exists between those who merely believe that the Revelation of the “resurrection” consists of the Revelation of the Memory of Creation and the revelation of the memories of previous lives…

And those who have directly and personally received the Revelation of the “resurrection”; and who, for that reason, are capable of ‘helping’ or explaining their Knowledge to those who have not yet received the Revelation.
