    All these ideas were not unique to each Group, but they give an idea of the thought of these Gnostics. They were not “Christians” at all, but followed their own ideas about a “Christ” that has no historical or biblical foundation. Imagine if I called myself a Muslim and followed God in .   And whether they themselves, I mean the authors of the book, bare responsible (see their madness, for by their licence they do grievous wrong to God) or whether they derived their ideas from some others whom they fell in with, they have taken a sound doctrine and perversely misapplied it.

    Their ideas seem to have been shared by others, even after the Church started to suppress them. in its Latin form, in The Oxford Book of Latin verse, edited by H. W. Garrod (Oxford, ), According to the Toledot Yeshu (The Book of the History of Jesus, or Generations of Jesus, or Life of Jesus) a Jewish work of uncertain date Jesus.   If one failed to accomplish this salvific freedom, the penalty would be that the soul will return to 'pay the very last mite,' a concept the Carpocratians took from their interpretation of Jesus's parable in Luke , which Catholics often read as a description of purgatory, but the Carpocratians understood as referring to the bondage of.

    Carpocrates of Alexandria was the founder of an early Gnostic sect from the first half of the 2nd century. As with many Gnostic sects, we know of the Carpocratians only through the writings of the Church Fathers, principally Irenaeus of Lyons and Clement of the former strongly opposed Gnostic doctrine, there is a question of negative bias when using this source.

The Carpocratians And Their Idea Of Jesus by G. Mead (Author) ISBN Their Idea of Jesus. The sensible world was made by the fabricating powers, or builders, far inferior to the ineffable power of the unknown ingenerable Father. Jesus was the son of Joseph and Mary, and was born like all other men; he differed from the rest in that his soul, being strong and pure, remembered what it saw in its orbit round (or conversation with) the ineffable Father.

Jesus was for him a religious genius. Hating the Jews, Carpocrates had his Jesus hating them also and rising above their "superstitions." The Carpocratians had statues of Jesus, Pythagorus, Plato, Aristotle, and others in their shrines.

Every human soul could rise to the level of Jesus. Answer. The Carpocratians were a sect founded by Carpocrates, who lived and worked in Alexandria around CE. His followers continued writing on his behalf for decades. None of their original works exist, so this is another group known to us only through the writings of its opponents.

Carpocrates and the Carpocratians. CARPOCRATES,car-pec'ra-tîz, AND THE CARPOCRATIANS:An Alexandrian Gnostic of the firsthalf of the second century and the sect which hefounded. His teachings rested upon a Platonicbasis, and were interspersed with Christian ideas.

Includes the Catholic Encyclopedia, Church Fathers, Summa, Bible and more — all for only $ Doctrines of Carpocrates. Carpocrates, again, and his followers maintain that the world and the things which are therein were created by angels greatly inferior to the unbegotten Father.

Carpocrates had indeed recalled his origin and was like unto Jesus, their words of love and salvation are parallel rays from the Unknowable Being to our world.

In the Secret Gospel it is as though Carpocrates was the boy, raised from the dead by the Savior. Their teachings are said to be the inspiration for the first Woodstock and the musical Hair. The Borborites Spread across much of the Middle East, they were considered the filthiest and horniest Bible thumpers around.

The Borborites took their marching orders from an apocryphal text called The Great Question of Mary. In this scripture, Jesus takes Mary Magdalene to the top of the Mount of.

(The followers of Carpocrates) allege that the souls are transferred from body to body, so far as that they may fill up (the measure of) all their sins. When, however, not one (of these sins) is left, (the Carpocratians affirm that the soul) is then emancipated, and departs unto that God above of the world-making angels, and that in this way.

The parables of Jesus make up a crucial part of the Bible. Jesus had the wisdom to simplify the profound spiritual truths he needed to share with humanity in the form of relatable stories that are easy to understand. A parable is a tale about a simple, common subject to illustrate a deeper, valuable moral lesson.

The Secret Gospel of Mark or the Mystic Gospel of Mark (Greek: τοῦ Μάρκου τὸ μυστικὸν εὐαγγέλιον, tou Markou to mystikon euangelion), also the Longer Gospel of Mark, is a putative longer and secret or mystic version of the Gospel of gospel is mentioned exclusively in the Mar Saba letter, a document of disputed authenticity, which is said to be written.

Jesus was sent by the unbegotten Father to be born into a conducive environment by natural means yet with full knowledge of what occurred in the upper regions prior to time. [19] But for Carpocrates, Jesus was not some God-Man sent to redeem us by faith; he also.

We thus come to the conclusion that the Carpocratians, or Harpocratians, were a Gnostic circle in Alexandria at the beginning of the second century, and that some of their ideas were.

BEFORE returning again towards the time of the origins along another line of tradition, of which one or two obscure indications still remain--the Carpocrates-Cerinthus trace--we will briefly refer to the obscure chaos of tendencies classed together under the term "Cainite" and its variants.

1. Carpocrates, again, and his followers maintain that the world and the things which are therein were created by angels greatly inferior to the unbegotten Father.

They also hold that Jesus was the son of Joseph, and was just like other men, with the exception that he differed from them in this respect, that inasmuch as his soul was stedfast and pure, he perfectly remembered those things which.

Marcellina was an early Christian Carpocratian religious leader in the mid-second century AD known primarily from the writings of Irenaeus and originated in Alexandria, but moved to Rome during the episcopate of Anicetus (c.

– ). She attracted large numbers of followers and founded the Carpocratian sect of other Carpocratians, Marcellina and her followers. Irenaeus, (c. –) in his Against Heresies (;6) says scornfully of the Gnostic Carpocratians, "They also possess images, some of them painted, and others formed from different kinds of material; while they maintain that a likeness of Christ was made by Pilate at that time when Jesus lived among them.

They crown these images, and set. CHAPTER X. BASILIDES, VALENTINUS, SATURNINUS, CARPOCRATES. Basilides, who seems to have come from Syria to live at Alexandria, in Lower Egypt. and in the adjacent departments, was the first of those foreign dogmatisers to whom one hesitates at times to give the name of is said to have been a disciple of Menander, and seems to have had two courses of instruction: the one, which.

Other than this, "Buddha-Messiahs: Yeshu, Essene Jesus of the Gnostic Nazoreans" is a work of paramount scholarship and importance in understanding who Jesus was, what he taught, and why this message is of as much importance today as it was in the 1st Century of the common era/5(7).

The Muratorian Canon is an eighth century Latin translation of the second century list, first published by L. A. Muratori, in But while Irenæus calls the Carpocratians a heretical sect, and denounces some of their tenets, he had no hard words for their doctrine of man's final destiny.
