The Nazarene Way is a collection of "pre-Christian" source documents, manuscripts, and other related spiritual teachings, most of which pertain to the life of Jesus and his early ministry.
"The Nazarene Way" is a project dedicated to the spiritual teachings and esoteric understandings of the Essene or "Nazarene Way." It is not a religion or a belief system, but a pathway of light and wisdom.
Throughout this archive, only the texts are provided. There are no opinions, directions or doctrines. It is up to the reader to discover the truth and to define its meanings.
The path is before you. Now the real journey begins.
