Summary:Marvin Meyer is one of the leading experts on the secret gospelsGÇöGospel of Thomas, Secret Gospel of Mark, and othersGÇöwho has changed forever how we read the canonical gospels and understand early Christianity. In this new collection of his work, Meyer looks at these revolutionary texts in original and illuminating ways. He writes, for example, about the naked youths in the villa of the Mysteries. On the walls of a villa in Pompeii, a famous mural depicts a naked male reading from a scroll, a look of wonder on his face. A naked youth again appears in the Gospel of Mark, abandoning his garmen.
