Presenter: Dr. Hal Taussig
The person of Eve (sometimes named or associated with ‘the Mother,’ ‘Wisdom-Sophia,’ or ‘Providence-Pronoia,) was a strong persona in the first several centuries of the Common Era. Unlike in later and present Christianity, Eve was often known especially among both the Christ People and the people of Israel as the mother of humanity, and was often in this dimension a powerful salvific figure for all time. Our Bible and Beyond Discussions study for July 26 examines her in important and relatively newly rediscovered Christ People documents of the first through third centuries. Among these Christ People documents are “The Secret Revelation to John,” (sometimes called “The Apocryphon of John”), “The Reality of the Rulers” (sometimes called “The Hypostasis of the Archons“) and “On the Origin of the World”.
