This is a story from one of the lost or forgotten books of the bible, and I could not help but notice the similarities between the names Hermes and Hermas. Also the Shepherd of Hermas was originally written in Greek, the culture that worshiped Hermes. Hermas has many visions and the whole thing is written in parable. There are some sections that talk about the same stone that the Bible speaks about,the cornerstone to the great spiritual temple. I was interested to know if you guys have read this text and what you thought about it.
