The Hidden Gospel presents an exciting new interpretation of the teachings of Jesus. In this workshop manual Douglas Harding invites you to do his breakthrough experiments and experience, directly, the Reality that Jesus was talking about.
In the Hidden Gospel Harding shows how the teachings of Jesus make sense in scientific terms - including some teachings that sound plainly untrue, or at best metaphorical. When Jesus spoke about having a 'single eye' and of his body being 'full of light', what did he mean? Anyone looking at him would have seen he had two eyes and his body was not made of light. But carry out Harding's 'single eye' experiment and within a few moments all is clarified, not through debate but by seeing - seeing that your eye is single, that your body is made of light. Now the words of Jesus make sense.
The Hidden Gospel, completed in 1974 but published now for the first time in paperback, is for anyone, from whatever tradition, who wishes to find out what Jesus really meant, not by debating his teachings but by experiencing for themselves the boundless core of their own being, and then seeing how clearly and beautifully Jesus described this experience, this Reality. This book does not appeal to Jesus as a religious authority who tells you what to believe but as a fellow traveller who found 'the pearl of great price' and, with great courage, did his best to share it with others.
