Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a verse in Manichaean Kephalaia that mentions the five things revealed by Jesus. First: He told them that they belonged to the race of Light. Second: He revealed to them about the Aeons of Greatness, how they exist, and he taught them about the nature of Darkness, how it too exists. The Third: He proclaimed to them about the Heroism of Light, how it overcame the power of Darkness and defeated it. Fourth: He taught them that he had come to the region of death in their midst, which is the flesh, until he might benefit them and bring them from the gate of hell below in which they were engulfed. The Fifth: He opened our eyes to the fact that the rebels will be bound by a great fetter, those who rebel against the Good and against the righteousness which has been proclaimed by the Apostle.
