The Secret Revelation of Gabriel

Posted by Gary

So, some people found a stone that is supposedly called the Revelation of Gabriel. National Geographic is hyping it up because of a reference to part of this stone that, when mistranslated, would mean "in three days live," which on its own apparently kills Christianity's unique dying and rising three days later. Oh wait -- except that Jesus wasn't the first for that, in the first place. The reference is actually to Hosea 6:1-3, which says "in three days raise us up," and is referring to all of Israel corporately.

National Geographic is going to hype this up just like they did for the Gospel of Judas. Here is an English translation done by Michael Sheiser. The part in question is lines 80 and 81. Note that almost zero lines here are completely intact, and the first 6 are completely unreadable. This really says nothing about Christianity. Don't be fooled by the hype!

My thanks to April DeConick, Doug Magnum, and Michael Sheiser for information on this one.

    You've visited me so its my turn to visit you.

    I looked at the translation and couldn't really make much out of it. There's not much there that's intact.

    Ooh! I don't get visitors much! Please look at some of my other stuff. Something original, for instance. :)
