In two previous books, Neil Douglas-Klotz pioneered a radical new way of translating the words of Jesus---filtering them through the imagistic worldview of the Aramaic language which Jesus himself spoke. Seen through this lens, familiar sayings such as "Blessed are the meek" come into vibrant contemporary focus as "Healthy are those who have softened what is rigid within."In The Hidden Gospel, Douglas-Klotz employs this approach to decode the spiritual and prophetic messages hidden within key words and concepts in the sayings and stories of Jesus. We learn to our delight, for instance, that when Jesus spoke of "goodness" he used a word which in Aramaic means "ripe" and refers to actions which are in time and tune with the Sacred Unity of all life.The Hidden Gospel aims to bridge the gap between the historical Jesus of the scholar and the Jesus of faith of Christian believers. It will appeal to everyone looking for an alternative spiritual vision of Jesus and his message.

The author, at worst, is proselytizing Islam and there actually is no "best" for this book. I am looking for a REAL translation of the words of Yeshua from the ancient Aramaic and I think it is impossible to find. The bias against Christianity, and especially the Roman Catholic Church, in this book jumps off the page almost immediately. The author has intellectualized himself into a corner: he thinks he knows far more than he does (hubris). I consider this book to be dangerous for the Christian who has not seriously studied Judaism (and Kabbalah) in order to understand Yeshua, and especially dangerous because the author makes a great deal of reference to Islam. He is now Sufi (Sufism is the name for the inner or esoteric dimension of Islam) Islam considers Yeshua to be a "prophet". The author dismisses the entirety of the four Gospels in the New Testament while at the same time believing upon the Koran, written by a Human person named Mohammad. You will not find any true translation from ancient Aramaic for the words of Yeshua in this book.

This book changes so much in regard to truly understanding what Jesus is actually teaching (Though his names was actually pronounced Yeshua which means "the unnamable saves and restores).

In the early pages of this carefully researched book Neil D-K provides the most lucid overview of the effect of translation, and how different languages frame up different realities, that I have ever come across - and this has been an area of interest of mine for decades.

It is clear from this book that the vast majority of the edifice of Western Christian Theology (and so Western Evangelism) is based on fundamental mis-translations which are filtered through a world view that western language supports AND that actually interferes with what Jesus teaches.

For Example the difference between the standard translation(from Aramaic to Greek to German to English) of Jesus words as "He who is not with us is against us" vs one based in Aramaic that translates as "If he is not against us he is one of us" changes so much. This quote has been used by Christians and especially Catholics to insist that people must make a choice to oppose Jesus or submit to there interpretations. Yikes. The usual version doesn't really sound like Jesus if you think about it and has been the cause of a lot of mischief!

But so much deeper than that this book unveils the Unity Jesus knew and taught and how to live it. This is a book to be savored and read and re-read and re-read again.

And for all you fear-guilt-shame based Catholics out there - Pope Pius XII actually stresses the importance of diligent study of these original languages so as to arrive at a deeper and fuller knowledge of the meaning of the sacred texts, in his encyclical entitled "Divine Afflante Spiritu" in 1943, so be at Peace!!

Neil Douglas-Klotz is not trying to stand with King James, Tyndale, JB Philips, etc. He is giving us linguistic and cultural context for the words of Jesus in a way that is unique from (but not in conflict with) the Interpretation Series or Barclay. His sense of ancient language and the cultural tendency to hold paradox gives me another lens through which to read the scripture that I feel is solidly accurate of the time and much needed in our divisive, individualistic contexts within which we exist. Many of the criticisms written about his books on Amazon are people who are bound to our American need for "one right way" This limits God and our understanding to something we can control and define when in reality, any God worth believing in will be way more complex than our understanding. JB Philips would be the first to confirm this statement were he alive still.

I purchased both the book and the audio version. The audio version is unique and somewhat surprising in that it does not follow the book. The audio version is abridged and focuses more on experiencing key concepts and meditations taught in the book. But with that said, the content of the audio version is worth listening to. If you want a word for word rendition in the audio version, you may be disappointed, as was I because I bought the audio to play while commuting to work to commit some of the concepts to memory.

Much hidden wisdom, lost in translation thousands of years past, is revealed. Not an easy read. Requires some basic knowledge of Middle Eastern mysticism, some understanding of Hebrew and Aramaic. King James Bible touches on much of this, as does Gospel of Timothy and Mary (Gnostic Gospels, not found in King James Bible).

To take the words of Jesus written in the gospels in Greek and to try to determine what these words may have been when spoken in Aramaic ... and then interpreting these words in a 2000 year old Middle Eastern culture ... is speculative to say the least ... but very refreshing. The author clearly has an agenda but his interpretations of Jesus' words are so different from the classical understanding that his attempt is worth review. This text takes modern biblical criticism one step further than it is normally taken. Churches should be as innovative and truly interested in the words of the scripture rather then teaching the same old tired, and usually mistranslated, English text. The author's views are often extreme but interesting.

This is a scholarly, yet very accessible, look at the themes of the Gospels which come out more clearly when taking their meaning from Jesus' language, Aramaic. Klotz has meditations for each section which get you to identify not just on a head level, but a body and spirit level with each section.
I became interested in the myths in the ancient Middle East. Jesus spoke in the Aramaic language which is very different from the Greek translation of the Aramaic. Aramaic is a land and spirit based language similar to many cultures. I read and ordered another book translated by Neil Douglas-Klotz called Prayers from The Cosmos. The Aramaic translation he did for the Lord's Prayer is richer and has more depth of understanding about forgiveness.
