The Concept of Our Great Power

The Concept of Our Great Power

Concept of Our Great Power refers to writing 28 of codex VI of the Nag Hammadi library.

The manuscript is dated from within approximately the middle of the fourth century AD

The text is primarily focused on apocalyptic concepts; it seems to relate back to Christian and even Jewish apocalyptic traditions at different points. Perhaps what makes Concept of our Great Power most Gnostic is its negative attitude toward the Old Testament God, its perspective on the corruption of the physical body, and its emphasis on the ultimate goal of the enlightened soul returning to the Light. The text specifically focuses on certain events such as the creation, the actions of the Redeemer, the antichrist, and the last triumph of the highest Power.

He who would know our great Power will become invisible And fire will not be able to consume him…
