More > knew that the Gods were mythical and the scriptures allegorical; and the latter, those who were taught that the Gods were real, and the scriptures historical; or, in other words, it was philosophy for the cultured few, and religion for the ignorant multitude. The initiates into the secrets of these two systems recognized them as the two Gospels; and Paul must have had reference to them in his Epistle to the Galatians ii., 2, where he distinguishes the Gospel which he preached on ordinary occasions from that Gospel which he preached "privately to them which were of reputation."< Less

More > biblical legends and the mysteries that created Christian rites, ceremonies, and codes of behavior. Kuhn argues that the sacred scriptures of Judaism and Christianity do not portray historical truths, but symbolic and mystical metaphors.

Kuhn’s research provides a clear understanding of the allegorical interpretations of the scriptures and their significance to a deeper, more profound Christianity. He traces the historical and philosophical origins of Christian thought to illustrate that Jesus was one of many incarnations of an enduring archetype that has surfaced in many religions. In fact, those who wrote the scriptures may have never even intended the focus to be on Jesus, the man.< Less

In just a few short years after the last of Jesus’ disciples had died (who were almost all Jews), almost all of the Christian leaders were now Platonic Greek philosophers. These were convinced... More > that the previous Christians were too simple-minded to understand the principles they (Platonists) were expounding. All future Christian leaders were required to study Greek philosophy as a basis for their study of the Old Testament Scriptures. They were interpreted allegorical, so that they would not conflict with accepted Greek philosophy. Over the years, these false doctrines became so deeply imbedded, that eventually no one recognized them as false, and believed that they represented Bible truth.
