Sophia of Jesus Christ (NHC III, 4; BG 8502/3; SJC)
(88 words)

[German Version]

In the Sophia, the risen Christ instructs his disciples concerning the supreme God and his emanations. The work probably originated in the 2nd century as a revision of Eugnostos (NHC III, 3; V, 1; Nag Hammadi), combining Christian and Gnostic ideas.
