Chapter Summary

This chapter analysis Exeg. Soul's interpretation and use of Scripture while making no claims with regard to the original intention of either the authors of the Scriptural texts or that of Exeg. Soul. itself. The approach taken in the present study is in line with the view that Exeg. Soul as it is preserved in Nag Hammadi Codex II should be regarded as a coherent and consistent whole, and for the purposes of the following analysis the author refrains from entering into speculations regarding the tractate's possible redaction history. Logion 114 of the Gospel of Thomas, undoubtedly one of the most well known and often cited passages in the entire Nag Hammadi corpus, famously states the need to become male in order to be eligible for salvation.

Keywords:exegesis; feminisation; Nag Hammadi corpus; scriptural texts; soul
