The Lévitikon Lectures

Readers may be interested to note that I will be giving the first of two lectures on The Lévitikon: The Gospels According to the Primitive Church, on Saturday 12 January 2013, as a part of the ongoing monthly discussion group at the Parish of St. Sarah-the-Egyptian of the Apostolic Johannite Church in Boston, Massachusetts.  The second lecture will take place on Sunday 26 May 2013 at the Conclave of the Apostolic Johannite Church in Chicago.

The Lévitikon is a controversial version of the Gospel of John discovered in 1804 by the founder of the modern Johannite Church, Dr. Bernard-Raymond Fabré-Palaprat. The 8th century Greek manuscript was translated and published in French by the Johannite Church in various editions dating between 1812 and 1831.  The first English translation of the portion containing the gospels took me two years to complete. This is the first public lecture that I have given specifically on The Lévitikon its publication in 2010.
