The text is composed of 13 questions from the disciples, followed by brief discourses by Jesus:
The vanity and futility of searching for GodHow to find truth, but only explaining what it is notHow truth was revealed to the gnostics at the beginning of timeHow one must awake to see the truthHow things beganHow mankind came to gnosisThe position of Jesus in all thisThe identity of Jesus How the spirit connects to the material The number of spiritsThe immortalThose who are not materialWhere mankind came from and what purpose it should have

Scripture Type:Gnostic Dialogue
Gnosticism is a modern term categorizing a collection of pre-Christian ancient religions whose adherents shunned the material world which they viewed as created by the demiurge; and instead embraced the spiritual world. Gnostic dialogue takes the form of sayings, conversation and correspondence of a Gnostic nature.
Nag Hammadi Library, Egypt 1945
The Nag Hammadi Library is a collection of 13 ancient books containing over 50 texts. This important discovery includes a number of primary "Gnostic Gospels" – texts which were assumed to have been destroyed during the early Christian conflicts.
All the texts discovered at Nag Hammadi can be viewed in the Gnostic Society Library website.
IMPORTANT: All Scripture text has context and background. Scripture should never be read literally or in isolation. Always seek clarification from religious scholars and teachers. In general, Scripture adheres to four principles: (1) Literal Meaning - What the Scripture says (2) Historical Setting - The story events; how the Scripture was understood in its time (3) Grammar - The surrounding sentence and paragraph; textual context (4) Synthesis - A comparison with similar Scripture to give a better contextual understanding
