Weekly Apocryphote: May 5-11

A quotation of the Gospel of Philip in the comment of my post yesterday reminded of the time years ago when I would present a weekly apocryphote as food for thought or contemplation.  The idea is like those weekly calendars that display a pretty picture and a bible quote to illuminate us.  Here, on this blog, the forgotten and forbidden are called forth instead.

Week May 5-11

"Redemption is an ascent.  It is (ascending by) the degrees which make up (God's) Wholeness...It is an entrance into what is silent, where there is no need for voice nor for knowing nor for thinking nor for enlightenment, but (where) all things are light, needing no illumination." 

Tripartite Tractate 124.14-15, 19-25.  Translation mine.
