The Mandaean Book of John (Book)
Title: The Mandaean Book of John
Author: John the Baptist
Editor: Charles Haberl
Editor: James McGrath
Abstract: The Mandaean Book of John is a Mandaean holy book in Mandaic Aramaic which is believed by the Mandean sect to have been written by their chief prophet John the Baptist. Mandaeanism , also known as Sabaeanism, is a monotheistic and gnostic religion with a strongly dualistic cosmology. Its adherents, the Mandaeans, revere Adam, Abel, Seth, Enos, Noah, Shem, Aram, and especially John the Baptist. The Mandaeans have been counted among the Semites and speak a dialect of Eastern Aramaic known as Mandaic. The book contains accounts of John's life and miracles, as well as a number of polemical conversations with Jesus and tractates mimicking Jesus's deeds in Jerusalem. Chapter seven of the Mandaean Book of John contains traditions attributed to John the Baptist.
