Chapter Summary

This chapter analysis how much of Gospel of Philip (Gos. Phil.'s) rhetoric is structured around certain key conceptual blends. It draws some tentative conclusions with regard to its overall theology and possible Sitz im Leben on the basis of this analysis. The chapter focus on how the text functions on the basis of an interplay between intertwined conceptual blends, scriptural intertexts, and highly complex intratextual references. It is possible to understand Gos. Phil. on its own terms, that is, on the basis of an analysis of the conceptual as well as the intra- and intertextual blends it activates, the most relevant intertextual context, as in the case of Exeg. Soul, being that of authoritative Scripture. The chapter that the parallelism between Christ and the initiated Christian is fundamental to the sacramental theology of Gos. Phil. Its Christology is reflected in its anthropology and vice versa.

Keywords:Christian; Christology; Gospel of Philip
