Gospel of the Saviour is a fragmentary Coptic text.
It consists of a fragmentary fire-damaged parchment codex that was acquired by the Egyptian Museum of Berlin in 1961. The content is heavily gnostic in that salvation is available only to those who understand the secret knowledge, in that the significance of the Crucifixion is watered down. Jesus engages in a personal dialogue with his apostles. At one point, the cross itself is addressed, as if it is a living creature, a companion rather than a device for death.

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.
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
