The way in which the scrolls were discovered and then hidden through many years sounds like a TV series, but the subject matter of the scrolls and the teachings of the Gnostics takes Christianity far beyond where the mainstream church has gone. Some people have even gone so far as to call Unity ‘modern-day Gnosticism.” Will you agree with that after taking this class?

That book, “The Gospel of the Beloved Companion: The Complete Gospel of Mary Magdalene,” translated and published by Jehanne deQuillan, shares the original, unredacted and complete gospel of Myriam the Migdalah, who is said to have written it five years after Yeshua’s (Jesus’) death. Join us as we explore this stunningly beautiful gospel in depth, delving into the life, teachings, and consciousness of Yeshua as well as his beloved companion whom we know as Mary Magdalene.This class will also be offered online.
  • 6:30 – 9 p.m. Monday, Sept. 16-Thursday, Sept. 19 Unity’s “maieutic” and metaphysical approach to interpreting scriptures helps the interpreter cultivate self-knowledge and make contact with the Higher Spiritual Self commonly called “Christ within” and “Christ consciousness.” Students will discover the inner meanings in Acts through Revelation as they apply the Unity method of interpretation to the New Testament. This class will also be available online.
