Is there a complete Gnostic commentary on the entire Bible that explains every book and chapter and their actual meanings? I know the Bible was never intended to be taken literally as it is. An entire Commentary on the Bible would be a fantastic help in understanding all of the symbolism. Is there such a book in existence? I have trouble trying to decipher any sort of meaning outside of taking verses like the following one literally.
Look at this verse...
Deuteronomy 22:5 NKJV
New King James Version
"A woman shall not wear anything that pertains to a man, nor shall a man put on a woman's garment, for all who do so are an abomination to the Lord your God.
What does this verse actually mean? Should it be taken literally; or, is there a deeper meaning than that? Surely there is. The literal meaning makes no sense as an article of clothing is merely an article of clothing. Scottish men wear kilts....and also.. Robes, tunics, and dress like garments have been worn by various cultures for centuries. It's common to see garments like robes and tunics in the Middle Eastern countries. This can't be taken literally; so, what does it really mean? Does it pertain to the typology or clothing style; or does it have more to do with not wearing an article of clothing a woman has just been wearing or a woman not wearing an article of clothing a man has just been wearing due to possible contamination?
