Apocryphote of the Day: 4-13-08

Such are those who have from above something of the immeasurable greatness, as they wait for the unique and perfect One. The One-Who-Is is there for them. They do not go down to Hades nor have they envy nor groaning nor death with them. But they rest in him who is at rest, not striving nor confused about the truth. They are the truth. And the Father is in them and they are in the Father, perfect, undivided from the truly Good One. They lack nothing at all, but they are at rest, refreshed in the Spirit.

Gospel of Truth 42.11-33 (Valentinian text, early to mid- second century; perhaps authored by Valentinus)

I greatly enjoy the apocryphotes; much easier on the brain when someone else picks out an interesting passage for me to ponder.
