Chapter Summary

The Kephalaia compilers' efforts to present general soteriological themes in five-parts is evident in this chapter. Here, the confrontation with the dark-realm is presented as a series of "[Five] Wars" waged by the "Sons of Light" (1Ke 58.2-3). An additional series of "five sons" is created using primary actors not normally designated as "sons" such as First Man, the Living Spirit, Third Messenger, Jesus the Splendour, and Call & Response.

Keywords:Jesus the splendour; living spirit; Manichaean Kephalaia; son of darkness; son of light; soteriological pattern; third messenger
