Hi Paul, I did. I found it on Amazon.
I am finding it OK, but maybe a little too "readable". I am just getting started so I will give it some time before I think about looking into other versions. It is truly fascinating to read through this, even if for the first time, with this new perspective.
I also just listened to your video on "Reframing Jesus":
Your interpretation of the "resurrection" was revelatory. I had never heard it from that angle. I am sure that idea will not sit well with traditional Christianity, but... given the fact that Jesus had been recorded as visiting other places AFTER the crucifixion, well, its hard to see it any other way. AND, possibly more importantly, something inside says "Yes" this is true. The pieces are coming together. In the last year I have been experiencing a knew found passion for Jesus, mostly due to the series "The Chosen". It has opened me up to a power and compassion that he taught, and where we might go.
"Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father."
This path seems to be endless, and now has me interested in the Apocrypha:
and the Books of Enoch, really anything that was "cut" from more recent versions of the Bible. I have plenty to keep me busy for now, but would like your recommendation on a direction here. There are a LOT of versions of the Apocrypha and I really dont have the education to understand which would be best.
OK, i have gone off topic enough here. Thanks for inspiring me to dive deeper!
