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.
