There’s no escaping the Nag Hammadi Library and its important because its the first genuine, non-corrupted set of Gnostic text to be discovered in 1945. The God of the Jews, according to Gnostics is evil and responsible for the creation of the material world, therefore everything in the material world is corrupt and evil through that association. The Supreme One sent Christ to the world to bring Knowledge to the people to show them the path of escape back to the spiritual world. Gnostics believe that they posses the “divine spark”, which allows them to recognize the Knowledge provided by Christ. Gnostics were also not a secretive group of people, but associated themselves with proto-Orthodox Christians to determine who else may have had the “divine spark”.
