"It came to pass, when Jesus had risen from the dead, that he passed eleven years discoursing with his disciples, and instructing them..." (The Pistis Sophia)

The Apostles wrote down what Jesus taught them during those eleven years, resulting in "The Pistis Sophia," the most important Gnostic scripture. Includes an extensive commentary by Samael Aun Weor. "The Pistis Sophia" is a sophisticated and deeply mystical teaching given by Jesus about the suffering of Sophia as she attempts to ascend to the highest spiritual truth. This scripture is remarkable for its profound mysticism, its clear rebuke of unethical behavior, and its perspective on the spiritual role of women. Having read this text, it becomes very clear why the established religious powers attempted to obliterate the Gnostics, but failed. Study of this teaching also inspires a re-evaluation of how the Christian Gospels have been interpreted for centuries.

About this scripture, the commentary author Samael Aun Weor said, ""The Hebrew Bible clearly connotes the Word of the Eternal One. However, we, the Gnostics, also have our very special Bible. I want to emphatically declare that this is The Pistis Sophia, whose original is in Coptic. It was found underground in Egypt, the land of the Pharaohs. The Pistis Sophia contains all the words of the adorable Savior of the world. It was written by the Apostles. Thus, all the Esoteric-Christic instructions that Jesus Christ gave to his disciples on the Mount of the Olives and other holy places is written within this book. This book had been conserved in secret for many centuries. In this book, the Adorable One left an extraordinary, formidable body of doctrine."

The Hebrew Bible clearly connotes the word of the Eternal One. However, we, the Gnostics, also have our very special Bible. I want to emphatically declare that this is The Pistis Sophia, whose original is in Coptic. It was found underground in Egypt, the land of the Pharaohs.
The Pistis Sophia contains all the words of the adorable Savior of the world. It was written by the Apostles. Thus, all the esoteric Christic instructions that Jesus Christ gave to his disciples on the Mount of Olives and other holy places is written within this book. This book had been conserved in secret for many centuries. In this book, the Adorable One left an extraordinary, formidable body of doctrine.
Samael Aun Weor, who is my real Being within me-that is to say, my profound real inner Being-has commented on each paragraph of the Nazarene's doctrine. My inner God Samael unveiled each paragraph, in order to explain it correctly. We are delivering this work precisely in these despairing moments. Thus, this is how we will be able to give to humanity the unveiled and explained Pistis Sophia: the body of doctrine of the adorable Savior of the world, Jesus Christ.
Humanity will undoubtedly be surprised because the doctrine of the Nazarene is formidable. It is hidden wisdom in the most transcendental sense of the word. Therefore, all Gnostics must study The Pistis Sophia. This book must always be on the Gnostic altars. This book reveals to us the word of the Master, of the Lord, of Christ. We, the Gnostics, must venerate His work.
I do not want to underestimate the Hebrew Bible, since it is an extraordinary and marvellous book. However, we, the Gnostics, have our own specific book: The Gnostic Bible-The Pistis Sophia, which is the written word of Christ.
Obviously all religions, schools and beliefs will be shaken to their very roots, because the word of the Adorable One is extraordinary.
