This is one of those books that you can read a hundred times and still only scratch the surface. Although the hidden knowledge it contains can be obscure, the writing is extremely powerful and intriguing. I always come away from it feeling much wiser, even when I'm unable to intellectually fathom why.
And I've also found that once one has a greater familiarity with esotericism - especially through the more explicit teachings of Belzebuub - a deeper practical understanding of this book can be gain

Jesus and Judas in NG's 'Gospel of Judas.'

A fragment from the book of one night on a solitary hill, after Judas and his 'Rabbi', Jesus, have talked for a while;
"I remained silent, and my Rabbi as well.

Then a great light as man could never imagine enveloped us both.
And I heard great words of truth spoken in the Kingdom of Heaven.
And I knelt down at the feet of my Rabbi and exclaimed,
“I know now who you are!”

However my Rabbi put his hands on my lips, looked tenderly at me and said,
“Judas, beloved of my heart, what you have seen, keep it

Haven't quite finished reading this book, but so far the book has me glued to the pages. This book explains more in detail about Judas Iscariot and why he was not the evil villain that he is portrayed in the bible, gives an interesting twist on the discovery of the Gospel of Judas that was hidden for over 1700 years, the intimate relationship that he and Jesus had and the explaination of the bogus setup of Jesus. There is so much wisdom to be learn in this book, it may give you an understanding ...more

This unique book is unbelievably powerful and inspiring from beginning to end. The true story of a journalist who befriends a mysterious man that leaves him a set of profound writings to publish (that are found in the second half of the book) which could forever change the way we think of what we know about historical figure Judas Iscariot.

A powerful story, and extremely touching for personally. This book speaks a lot about love and overcoming spiritual obstacles. A must read for anyone serious about inner transformation!

This is one of the best books I've ever read. Every time I've ever read it, it's given me something new and I've always come away form it feeling more inspired and like I've learned something deeply important for myself and my own journey. I'd really recommend it so much to anyone. It's now been released for free as an E-book for anyone who would like to read it that way. Here's a link to where it can be downloaded from: http://www.belsebuubcommunity.com/fre...

It's hard to give my perspective of this book in one sentence, but if I had to choose, I'd say "Hard to put away and always keep it within hand's reach to read a few pages and feel inspired."

When you decide to pick up this book, you'll soon notice that you'll be glued to the pages from the start and it's hard to put it away. The first part is around the time of the 2nd world war where a journalist tries to attain greater intelligence. He meets a mysterious man who little by little gives him info

This book is truly wonderful - it talks to my heart in a very different ways as each book within it is read, understood, comprehended and felt.
It is divided into 3 books - the first part is so easy to relate to - and my heart feels this common understanding with Armando Cosani - what he goes through in his life, how he reacts to the events, and how he's led from one end to another - yet always looking to understand and connect back to Spirituality. It contains some very deep and beautiful descri

I must have read this book at least two or three times. While the information in it is amazing - an alternate look at Judas as an advanced disciple of Jesus (which correlates well with the Gospel of Judas found years after this book's publication). The really valuable part of this book is the humanity shown by Judas, through reading the first section or the more archaic second and historical third sections I have been able to feel feelings like care and love and compassion. I truly believe that ...more

This book is amazing on so many levels!

Cosani's journalistic writing style & story telling makes it difficult to put this book down once you get started.

The book itself is full of amazing spiritual teachings, in the likes of the many texts of the Nag Hammadi Library - very deep and inspiring stuff.

Perhaps the most amazing thing about this book is that it contains material that is extremely similar to the secret teachings contained in the recently discovered Gospel of Judas - only this book w

Thoughts and views of hundreds of years for esotericism demolished and a new way of reflection and revision lies ahead.
This book, which I have now as a study guide, helped me unblock of views, opinions and things I had read about that time and actually see things for myself in daily life.
I think this book is timeless and speaks to our times with the language of truth. Urged to revise things for yourself,to meditate, reflect and discover that many of them were written are far from the real hist

An amazing book. I read it the first time and really missed so much. It is a book that needs to be read slowly to discover the amazing insights given. I have also read many of Belzebuubs books, which I strongly believe go hand in hand and help to understand the importance of this book. Such a great book I want to make a movie about it!! : )

This book warrants deeper evaluation and rereading. It starts off fairly straightforward, containing a definite hook and wisdom in context. The second part of the book missed context entirely. Half the time I felt what I was reading contained a deeper wisdom, the other half I was simply at a loss by the overabundance of symbolism far beyond purpose or necessity.

The third part of the book was both deeply moving and profound. All in all I honestly appreciate the context of this mysterious telling

I think its pretty much accurate to say that I have read this book 20 times over in a period of 9 years, and I will continue reading it.
My first Flight of the feathered serpent book I got is in a condition where the pages falls out, because I read it so manny times, so I got 3 more. I guess I'm trying to relate how I feel about it but I'm failing. Its better.
At one point I thought that If the world comes to an end in a post apocalyptic scenario that the only thing I would take is this book.

If you have ever wondered what an awakened master would be like, how he would talk, act and behave - this is the book to read. A mysterious account (the book is said NOT to be a fiction) of a journalist with a special man who possessed extraordinary wisdom and qualities and left the author a manuscript to publish. This manuscript, containing previously unpublished esoteric information from the times of Jesus, intriguingly correlates with the later found Gospel of Judas, and reveals the role of J ...more

One of my all time favourites. This book just stays with you, looong after you've read it. It's like an important person you've 'met', things just aren't quite the same after. There are so many profound teachings immersed in an engrossing story, it's the kind of book you can dip into knowing a relevant pearl of wisdom will jump right out but can also read from start to finish because of the narrative.

It gives a very interesting spin on the figure of Judas. Great for those who are interested in

One of my absolute favorites. Back when this book was in print, I could barely keep a copy for myself before giving it to someone hoping they would enjoy it as much as I do. As of now, you cannot get a hard copy of this translation anymore, but you can download it freely at theflightofthefeatheredserpent.com.

This is an amazing book. It's the kind of book you know you can keep reading over and over again and get something new out of it. I know that much of it was over my head and look forward to another read so I can gather even more insight and understanding.
