Nag Hammadi

 

Pronunciation:  nawg + hahm-MAH-dee

Occurrences:  1

First Reference:  Wisdom 29:17

 

Consider then such events as did move and turn in preparation for the restoration of that very gnosis which the Gods of Heaven would give again; for in the years prior to the birth of this Mighty One, even God did cause to be revealed the lost books of Nag Hammadi, down in Egypt land, for out of the sands of captivity was there brought forth the essence of ancient knowledge.

 

 

See:  Khirbet Qumran

 

Summary:  The “lost books of Nag Hammadi” (W:29:17) refer to a collection of texts discovered near the Upper Egyptian town of Nag Hammadi in 1945. According to scripture, this discovery was one of three events or “signs” which set the stage for the restoration of gnosis via the birth of the Mighty One and the return of the Teacher of Righteousness (W:29:16-19).

 

While scripture presents the discovery of the Nag Hammadi texts as a precursor to the restoration of gnosis, the author (Archie D. Wood, Sr.) establishes a clear separation between the restored gnosis, as represented by the teachings of Azrael and the Song of God, and the various “false Gnostics of ages past”, as represented by the Nag Hammadi texts.

 

“As true Gnostics, we should not be confused with the false Gnostics of ages past, as represented by the codices and tractates discovered at Nag Hammadi, Egypt, in 1945. Neither are we representative of those Gnostics which early church fathers argued against in their efforts to establish a single church orthodoxy with its attendant ecclesiastical authority.”
