The Lost Gospels (Complete Documentary)

Documentary presented by Anglican priest Pete Owen Jones which 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 – a Jesus unrecognizable from that found in the traditional books of the New Testament. Pete travels through Egypt and the former Roman Empire looking at the emerging evidence of a Christian world that’s very different to the one we know, and discovers that aside from the gospels of Mark, Matthew, Luke and John, there were over seventy gospels, acts, letters and apocalypses, all circulating in the early Church. Through these lost Gospels, Pete reconstructs the intense intellectual and political struggles for orthodoxy that was fought in the early centuries of Christianity, a battle involving different Christian sects, each convinced that their gospels were true and sacred. The worldwide success of Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code sparked new interest, as well as wild and misguided speculation about the origins of the Christian faith. Owen Jones sets out the context in which heretical texts like the Gospel of Mary emerged. He also strikes a cautionary note – if these lost gospels had been allowed to flourish, Christianity may well have faced an uncertain future, or perhaps not survived at all.

Aries 2012 Overview

Aries, the first sign of the zodiac, exudes a great sense of adventurism, enthusiasm, and seems to have an unlimited source of energy. Their passion for keeping active means they often end up double, even triple, booking themselves. They are eager, dynamic, quick, and competitive. When it comes to getting things started, Aries people will get the job done. Pioneering everything from work-related projects to parties with friends, these folks through themselves fully, and immediately, into everything that they set themselves. Lively Arians are represented by image of the Ram, and have many admirable attributes and 2012 looks like a year in which Aries people will find brimming with positive and well deserved change.

During 2012, you will start a process of redeveloping and redefining how you see yourself and the direction of your life. An ideal year to try new approaches and strategies you may have feared to take in the past. Mars, your ruling planet, is going backwards until April, so you will be more likely to take the road less travelled after your birthday.

Jupiter, meanwhile, will help you recognize your own worth and brings you many new options, ideas and new connections. This planet will also help you realize what you need to develop and improve, and June will be a pivotal month for achieving a greater insight into your future.

The two eclipses – one in May and one in June – will inspire you with many wonderful ideas and goals to push towards this year. Know you are capable of achieving these objectives, and success is likely. Aries is symbolized by the “Emperor” in the tarot, symbolizing leadership, so there is no doubting you possess leadership qualities; all you need to do is tap into these traits. Though you have the talent, this year you need to enlist the help of others to accomplish your important goals.

Saturn in your partnership zone may have stifled your interactions with others but in October, Saturn moves on, freeing you up to look at everything with a fresh perspective and ready to enter into more long term connections or objectives.

2012 is an important year for Aries regarding money, relationships, professional matters and communication. Jupiter, planet of luck and expansion will remain in your income sector until the 12th June, creating the potential for income growth and opportunities. In the second half of the year, the focus will shift to your financial situation where it will be less about creating growth and opportunities and more about cementing and managing what you already have. The more you can balance financial responsibility with income growth in the first half of the year, the more potential for growth there will be on both fronts.

Relationships continue to be a major theme in 2012, as they have been for several years now but it is Venus, planet of love’s extraordinary four month visit to your communication sector, from the 4th April to the 8th August that sets the scene for a real breakthrough. If love and communication are the lifeblood of any good relationship, then having Venus in your communication sector gives you a double whammy. As the year progresses and especially from June onwards, communication in general becomes both easier and more meaningful. The only real challenges you will face this year are the same challenges you have become familiar with over recent years, maintaining a balance between personal and relationship goals.

2012 brings with it a reason to smile and rejoice. Those who were going through a tough patch in the past few months, will start to feel more settled.

From the first month of 2012, people under Aries horoscope enter the Jupiter cycle. This brings in a good amount of cash flow and some drastic change in career. This is also the time for you to relax and go for a holiday.

Spend time with your near and dear ones as family and friends will bring in joy towards the mid of the year.

You will make great improvements in your life, weeding out all things that are not necessary. 2012 is the time to take reach for your dreams and begin to make them happen.



Love & Family

2012 will be synonymous with love and romance for Aries. After a difficult period in the previous year, you can now expect to develop long-term stability in emotional bonds and relationships. The Moon-Uranus conjunction in your sign could either bring a new love your way, or you could suddenly bump into an old friend whom you now see in a new light. If this happens, you will have it both ways: pleasant memories of good times together and getting to know him or her all over again. Whether this happens for you, or you meet an attractive stranger, you will spend many happy times learning about each other. The passion of love will strengthen the romantic bond between those who are married or engaged. Enjoy every moment of togetherness as you start understanding the harmony of a relationship. For those in established relationships, marriage is a real possibility by the end of the year.

During February, May, August and December, romance and love of Aries will be positive. In March, September and October, relationships need careful tending to keep things running smoothly.

Family life improves this year, especially during the last two quarters of the year. Aries will find their time at home brings them a greater sense of tranquility and enjoy a strengthening bonds between spouses and children who bring great happiness to the Ram.

Single Arians should not overlook the possibility of a chance meeting, particularly during the middle of the year, which could easily become a strong friendship before blossoming into love.

The Ram will be working on their communication and people skills this year, learning how to be a little more supportive and tactful when dealing with less than ideal situations that may arise in interpersonal relationships. The rewards of doing so will be great when harmony and peace are the result whether it is at home or at work. You will find that the extra effort will bring peace and harmony in your relationships whether at work or at home during 2012.

Work & Money

If you have been working for the same business, there is likely to be a sudden change in the company’s structure which will either open the way to promotion, or motivate you to leave to move to “greener pastures”.

Professional success will be within reach in 2012; but you may have to wait patiently until the last quarter of the year to see the results you have been looking for.

By September, you are likely to see a shift or change in your job. A move of job location or the job itself is likely around November. A course related to your job is going to be on the cards and will help to open doors for work advancement and promotion down the track. Aries in business will enjoy some profitable business deals by the mid year. Your main planet, Mars, will boost your work performance and spirit. Do not hide your creativity during 2012 on the work front as you may find your creative expression may benefit your career. Surround yourself with like-minded people who like you strive for success.

Aries will start the year with a clear picture in terms of their financial goals, allowing them to regulate their spending, and saving, more sensibly than they did in the past. Pay raises, promotions, job changes, or investments, are favoured more in the third or fourth quarters for the year.

Health
Aries people will be brimming with positive energy, optimistic and constructive. Most Arians are likely to experience a year filled with good health in 2012, the only challenge. getting the necessary exercise and proper nutrition. Setting aside time for rest and relaxation to stay balanced and calm is important for Aries who despite their high energy levels, tend to take on more than they can reasonably handle by compromising their own needs.

Do make it a point to take part in some outdoor activities and adventures, especially during June and July, to rejuvenate and balance your energy levels while getting in touch with nature.
