The Bridal Chamber in Gospel of Philip should be interpreted allegorically and spiritually.

Gospel of Philip is an highly esoteric Gospel and it is in this Gospel that the words Bridal Chamber is more frequently used. However some of them like the Latter Day Saints or the Mormon Church, Dan Brown and others have interpreted this sacrament sexually going so far as claiming that there existed a literal Bridal Chamber with the bride and the bridegroom which is completely in variance with the theme of Gospel of Philip.

Gospel of Philip is a Valentinian material, a Valentinian exposition and in such context the entire Gospel of Philip should be interpreted around the 'Fall of Sophia' myth and the restoration of fullness which takes place when the Saviour descends on earth to teach everyone the gnosis of the unbegotten Father. So the union in the Bridal Chamber is not something which takes place between an earthly bride and the bridegroom instead it is a union which takes place between the Holy Father and the individual who enters into the Bridal Chamber.

Gospel of Philip clearly slaps on their faces to all those who interpret the sacrament of Bridal Chamber sexually and literally which is a clear misunderstanding on their part showing a shear lack of gnosis.

No one can know when the husband and the wife have intercourse with one another, except the two of them. Indeed, marriage in the world is a mystery for those who have taken a wife. If there is a hidden quality to the marriage of defilement, how much more is the undefiled marriage a true mystery! It is not fleshly, but pure. It belongs not to desire, but to the will. It belongs not to the darkness or the night, but to the day and the light. If a marriage is open to the public, it has become prostitution, and the bride plays the harlot not only when she is impregnated by another man, but even if she slips out of her bedroom and is seen. Let her show herself only to her father and her mother, and to the friend of the bridegroom and the sons of the bridegroom. These are permitted to enter every day into the bridal chamber. But let the others yearn just to listen to her voice and to enjoy her ointment, and let them feed from the crumbs that fall from the table, like the dogs. Bridegrooms and brides belong to the bridal chamber. No one shall be able to see the bridegroom with the bride unless he become such a one.

The author of Gospel of Philip clearly says that the marriage which takes place in the Bridal Chamber is not fleshly but pure, it is not the defiled marriage between an earthly bride and the bridegroom but an undefiled marriage between the Holy Father and the individual who receives the light.

I don't know what stupidity in them makes them think that the sacrament of Bridal Chamber is equivalent to the defiled earthly marriage, as a Valentinian Gnostic I am least concerned of the historical Jesus, I do not care whether he was married to Mary Magdalene or not, I am least interested to know his bloodline. What we are more interested is in the pneumatic Christ, the Christ in you and his acquaintance.

Thanks to this psychic world for completely missing the esoteric pleromic interpretation of the Gospel of Philip, who though hearing the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven do not hear and who though seeing they do not see and are more concerned with the earthly rather than the spiritual abode of Aeons.
