13. The Incarnate Savior and his Companions

He it is who was our Savior in willing compassion, who is that which they were. For it was for their sake that he became manifest in an involuntary suffering. They became flesh and soul, - that is, eternally- which (things) hold  *  them and with corruptible things they die. And as for those who [came into being] 115 [the] invisible one taught them invisibility about himself.


Not only * only did he take upon <himself> the death of those whom he thought to save, but he also accepted their smallness * to which they had descended when they <born> * in body and soul. (He did so) because he had let himself be conceived and born as an infant, in body and soul.


Mysterious world of Plato

Among all the others *  who shared in them * and those who fell and recieved light, * he came being exalted, because he had let himself be conceived without sin, stain and * defilement. He was begotten in life, being life because the former and the latter are in passion and changing opinion * from the Logos who moved, who established them to be body and soul. He it is <who> has taken to himself the one who came from those whom we previously mentioned.


He came into being from the glorious vision and the unchanging thought of the Logos who returned to himself, after his movement, from the organization, just as those who came with him took body and soul and a confirmation and stability and judgment of things.

They too intended to come. When they thought of the Savior they came, and [they came] when he knew; * they also came more exalted in the * emanation according to the flesh than those * who had been brought forth from a defect, because ... in this way * they, too, received their bodily emanation along with the body of the Savior, through * revelation and the mingling with him. These * others were those of one substance * and it indeed is the spiritual (substance).

The organization is different. This one thing, that is another. Some come forth from passion and division, needing healing. Others are from prayer, so that they heal the sick, when they have been appointed to treat those who have fallen. These are the apostles and evangelists. They are the disciples of the Savior, and teachers who need instruction. Why, then, did they, too, share in the passions in which those who have been brought forth from passion share, if indeed they are bodily productions in accordance with the organization and <the> Savior, who did not share in the passions?

The Savior was an image of the unitary one, he who is the Totality in bodily form.
