BBC: The Lost Gospels

Aired: March 15, 2008 on BBC 2
Anglican priest Peter Owen Jones explores the huge number of ancient Christian texts that didn't make it into the New Testament.

Shocking and challenging, these were works in which Jesus didn't die, took revenge on his enemies and kissed Mary Magdalene on the mouth.

Pete travels through Egypt and the former Roman Empire looking at the evidence of a Christian world very different to the one we know, and finds over seventy gospels, acts, letters and apocalypses all circulating in the early Church.
