Chapter Summary

This chapter presents an essay that was published in Dutch in Nederlands Theologisch Tijdschrift in early 1957. The gist of the author's argument has been accepted and developed by Jarl Fossum. Jan Helderman tested and acknowledged the Jewish origins of the speculations on Christ as the Name of God in the Gospel of Truth. Roelof van den Broek established that the metaphysical Anthropos in the Letter of Eugnostos and other Gnostic writings from Nag Hammadi is a far echo from Ezekiel 1,26, on the luminous Glory or kabod of God in the shape of heavenly Adam. April D. DeConick proves that the Gospel of Thomas used not only an independent Judaic Christian source of Sayings of Jesus but also an esoteric Jewish mystical source with Hermetic overtones, to be located in Alexandria.
