The Secret Book of John reveals the truth about the creation story found in Genesis. It serves as a prequel if you consider Genesis to be told in Yaltaboath’s point of view. The Secret Book of John turns what was bad in Genesis (the eating from the tree of knowledge) into a good thing. For the Gnostics, it was a good thing that Adam ate from the tree of knowledge because he was disobeying the Yaltaboath rather than the One. The Treatise on the Resurrection shows that resurrection occurs when Jesus takes your spirit at death and ascends to the heavens. The resurrection for the Gnostics is of the spirit whereas porto-orthodox believe in a bodily resurrection. The Treatise of the Resurrection also shows that the earth is the illusion not the resurrection.
