Index of links on the Apocalypse of Gabriel

I'm feeling overwhelmed with the coverage of this stone. So I'm putting together an index with links. I'll update it as needed. You can easily find it in the future by clicking "Apocalypse of Gabriel" under LABELS in my sidebar.

Would you call this text an apocryphon?

I have always asked the question why did Yeshua always talked about his role as a liberator and how he would die not only for the sins of israel but for the gentiles as well. Surely some ancient writing during his time would support his concept of being the messiah and back up his claim that indeed he is the one to liberate us all from our transgressions whatever it may be. And now we have it. For many this is a shocker. But for me it is not. It only proves one thing. That this ink in stone served as a teaching during his time that he was indeed the one chosen to do the task. And that he would be raised up in three days. In the book of John he commented on this passage when he disrupted the temple. " destroy this temple and "In three days i will raise it up" Somehow he was commenting on an ancient passage. Now we have that answer where it's source might have officialy come from.

Somehow i do hope the translation of this ink in stone is to be made with truthfulness,fairness, impartiality to us all. remember the discovery of the gospel of Judas and the gnostic society?Let us not fill in the gaps to suit the morals of today.These scholars often overhype to suit their needs.and distort them.I'm just thankful there are people like Dr. DeConick and her team.
