The Secret Gospel of Mark

Previous: Did Constantine choose the Gospels?      Next: The Gospel of Judas

The 'Secret Gospel of Mark' describes a strange night-time encounter between Jesus and a youth. Professor Craig Evans discusses whether it is an ancient text or a modern forgery. Secret Mark consists of a couple of quotations from a letter by Clement of Alexandria, copied into the back of a printed seventeenth century book.  We have no original manuscripts of Secret Mark, nor of the supposed letter by Clement. And now, even the seventeenth century book has disappeared. All we have are mid-twentieth century photographs. Seventh video in the 'Conspiracies and Secret Gospels' series.

If you want to find out more, the Biblical Archaeology Review has carried extensive and even-handed coverage of the debate about the Secret Gospel of Mark.

‘Astronomy leads us to a unique event, a universe which was created out of nothing, and delicately balanced to provide exactly the conditions required to support life. In the absence of an absurdly improbable accident, the observations of modern science seem to suggest an underlying, one might say, supernatural plan.’
- Nobel Prize-winning scientist Arno Penzias
