oa Conspectus : The Journal of the South African Theological Seminary - The passion of Christ in the Valentinian sources from the Nag Hammadi Library, and its relationship with the fourth gospel

 

Abstract

Although the passion of Christ in the Valentinian Sources from the Nag Hammadi Library and the passion of Christ in the Fourth Gospel seem to share many commonalities, the Valentinian understanding of the passion events has much less to do with the historicity of the crucifixion, suffering, death, and resurrection of Christ than with what they symbolised. Likewise, the passion can only be properly understood in light of the Valentinian myth, through which the Valentinians understood their theology. The following article analyses the passion of Christ in the Valentinian Sources from the Nag Hammadi Library in light of its relationship to the Fourth Gospel.
