Chapter Summary

The Kephalaia compilers' efforts to present general soteriological themes in five-parts is evident in this chapter. It presents a series of "Five Resurrecting Saviours" (1Ke 45.17), although the fragmentation of the text allows for the identification of only the third and fourth. In this series, the Father is placed in third position, which appears strange given the importance usually accorded to him as the foundation of all subsequent being, while Light-Mind is placed in fourth position.

Keywords:light-mind; Manichaean Kephalaia; resurrecting saviour; soteriological pattern
