On the passion of the Saviour and the Eucharist

A Valentinian Interpretation of Baptism and Eucharist: And Its Critique of "Orthodox" Sacramental Theology and Practice by Elaine Pagels.

"Jews demand signs and Greeks search for wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God." (1 Corinthians 22-24)

I exactly know how the Jews might be feeling in their hearts when Christians tell them that Jesus was their Messiah. The Messiah who was supposed to bring every Jew back to the promised land rebuilding the Jerusalem temple and preaching all the nations about the One God and his commandments is actually found dead on a cross. This is ridiculousness of the highest order, ROFL, laughable beyond control, blasphemy of the highest unpardonable sin, LOL.

As a Gentile I really don't like the idea of a God dying at the hands of the demons, this is the reason why I often quote Basilideans and the Sethians who viewed that it was someone else who died on the cross and that Jesus was actually mocking at the Pharisees sitting on the branch of a tree in not truly recognizing whom they were piercing with.

Well, jokes apart, I am a Valentinian Christian and I take the words of Paul and his followers quite seriously and am sensitive to it. Unlike other gnostic sects Valentinians accepted that Jesus died on the cross, that he was crucified and nailed to the Cross. However they interpret this historical event in a different way compared to the Roman Catholic Church, the above work of Miss Pagels entails just what the difference was.

It seems as though the Saviour wanted to re-enact the whole Valentinian myth on this realm in order to show its significance and taught to keep it as a remembrance for us. The passion of the Saviour actually remembers us the passion of the Sophia in seeking the unknowable Holy Father, the suffering of the Saviour at the hands of the Pharisees remembers us the suffering of Achamoth as to what she went through after she was cast out of the Pleroma and the suffering which each of her seeds had to go through at the hands of the evil archons of the world. The Saviour's crucifixion remembers us the recovery of our lost knowledge through the gnosis of the Holy Father which helps in maturing the seeds here and finally the cross represents the restoration of Achamoth inside the Pleroma and restoration of her spiritual seeds with the bridegrooms of Christ at the wedding marriage feast inside the Pleroma.

In this way the crucifixion of Jesus Christ is actually a re-enaction of the Valentinian myth and of the Demiurge and his psychic believers. I think it is better for the Jews to understand that the rule of Demiurge has ended with the reign of Christ and their god Jehovah himself is actually like the Centurion who ran towards Jesus Christ after knowing who he was and after knowing that Jesus existed before him or else the Jews will continue to suffer if they hold on to their old beliefs.
