Two more readings

I have a video clip of two more readings I would like to share. The first reading is from the Gospel of Philip and it’s about how Jesus appears to everyone.

Jesus took them all by stealth, for he did not appear as he was, but in the manner in which they would be able to see him. He appeared to them all. He appeared to the great as great. He appeared to the small as small. He appeared to the angels as an angel, and to men as a man. Because of this, his word hid itself from everyone. Some indeed saw him, thinking that they were seeing themselves, but when he appeared to his disciples in glory on the mount, he was not small. He became great, but he made the disciples great, that they might be able to see him in his greatness.

He said on that day in the thanksgiving, "You who have joined the perfect light with the Holy Spirit, unite the angels with us also, as being the images." Do not despise the lamb, for without it, it is not possible to see the king. No one will be able to go in to the king if he is naked.

That first paragraph is quite inspirational. No matter where you are in life, if you seek to find Christ, he will appear on your level but then lifts you to greatness. The second paragraph feels like an expanded version of John 14:6:

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.  (ESV translation)

The second reading is a section from the untitled text in the Bruce Codex. I made a blog post about it awhile back and will just link to it HERE.

The artwork I have featured for this post is Midjourney AI based and is derived from the untitled text prayer.
