PODCAST: Awakening the Gnostic Redeemer – Decoding Twin Peaks The Return w/ Dr. Robert M. Price

I was excited to have Dr. Robert M. Price back on as a guest to discuss Gnostic themes in last year’s hit television series Twin Peaks: The Return. Fans of the show may find this discussion helpful to understanding the show’s more obscure plot points while students of ancient and church history will find the show’s application of Gnostic ideas to be fascinating and perhaps clarifying.

Dr. Robert Price has received doctorates in both systematic theology and New Testament from Drew University and a former fellow of the Jesus Seminar. He is also a scholar at the forefront of the Christ myth movement which denies the existence of a historical Jesus, having written books on the subject such as The Incredible Shrinking Son of Man. You can find a number of his books related to biblical studies on Amazon and even hear him as the host of The Bible Geek podcast. He’s also written extensively in the field of H.P. Lovecraft studies and co-wrote a book about the rock band Rush with his wife Carol entitled Mystic Rhythms: The Philosophical Vision of Rush. He can be found at http://robertmprice.mindvendor.com/

One thought on “PODCAST: Awakening the Gnostic Redeemer – Decoding Twin Peaks The Return w/ Dr. Robert M. Price”

  1. Experts in Gnosticism sees analogues to Gnosticism, people more intimate with Hinduism are certain that’s the main connection. Of course the TM supporters point to Lynch’s person involvement there. I know someone who has worked out an elaborate explanation for why TP: S3 is most certainly about the ideas of Aleister Crowley. Etc. Another one says it’s about Theosophy. Duality? What makes Gnosticism the source for that? Gnosticism is the new kid on the block. Surely people as well informed about religion as you see how Gnosticism has no special purchase on duality, opposites, ideas about illusion, etc. You need to refute opposing views to be convincing, because I have read ones just as convincing as yours. Or just give up on the idea of the one special skeleton key to explain the mythology of TP. Or go back further historically than Gnosticism.
