Sophia of Jesus Christ  


The Sophia of Jesus Christ has strong similarities to the Epistle of Eugnostos.

The text is composed of 13 questions from the disciples, followed by brief discourses by Jesus:
  • The vanity and futility of searching for God
  • How to find truth, but only explaining what it is not
  • How truth was revealed to the gnostics at the beginning of time
  • How one must awake to see the truth
  • How things began
  • How mankind came to gnosis
  • The position of Jesus in all this
  • The identity of Jesus
  • How the spirit connects to the material
  • The number of spirits
  • The immortal
  • Those who are not material
  • Where mankind came from and what purpose it should have
