Chapter Summary

This chapter is on the meaning of the five words which are proclaimed mntparapexout in the cosmos. It contains polemical discussions of rival religious groups. Here, Mani is asked to explain the "Five Words which are proclaimed in the teaching of the Baptists" (1Ke 44.25-26) and other sects. Unfortunately, the lacunous state of the text once again prevents one from reconstructing what these "Five Words" might have been, with the exception of "Third Messenger" as the second in the series (1Ke 44.36-45.1).

Keywords:Baptist; Manichaean Kephalaia; mntparapexout; polemical pattern; third messenger
