“It came to pass, when Jesus had risen from the dead, that he passed eleven years discoursing with his disciples, and instructing them...” - The Pistis Sophia, first century AD
The Apostles wrote down what Jesus taught them during those eleven years, resulting in “The Pistis Sophia,” the most important Gnostic scripture. Includes an extensive commentary by Samael Aun Weor.
“The Pistis Sophia” is a sophisticated and deeply mystical teaching given by Jesus about the suffering of Sophia as she attempts to ascend to the highest spiritual truth. This scripture is remarkable for its profound mysticism, its clear rebuke of unethical behavior, and its perspective on the spiritual role of women. Having read this text, it becomes very clear why the established religious powers attempted to obliterate the Gnostics, but failed. Study of this teaching also inspires a re-evaluation of how the Christian Gospels have been interpreted for centuries.
About this scripture, the commentary author Samael Aun Weor said,
"The Hebrew Bible clearly connotes the Word of the Eternal One. However, we, the Gnostics, also have our very special Bible. I want to emphatically declare that this is The Pistis Sophia, whose original is in Coptic. It was found underground in Egypt, the land of the Pharaohs. The Pistis Sophia contains all the words of the adorable Savior of the world. It was written by the Apostles. Thus, all the Esoteric-Christic instructions that Jesus Christ gave to his disciples on the Mount of the Olives and other holy places is written within this book. This book had been conserved in secret for many centuries. In this book, the Adorable One left an extraordinary, formidable body of doctrine."
"All Gnostics must study The Pistis Sophia. This book must always be on the Gnostic altars." - Samael Aun Weor
I cannot sat enough about The Pistis Sophia Unveiled. I had read parts of this book from other authors, but having my own copy that I can hold in my hand, and study it sentence by sentence, is invaluable. It is corner stone of the Gnostic Teaching. I absolutely Love It!
Thank you Glorian 😊

Hi Meghan, Your postal service confirmed delivery of your item on July 19. If you did not get it, you should contact them. We are a small non-profit in another country; we are unable to send someone to your local post office on your behalf. We hope that when you get your book, you will write a review of it instead of a review of your local postal service. Best regards!
The book is good but hard to understand. A primer before reading the book would be good. I will read Treatise of Sacred Alchemy before I attempt to understand it.
