Ca 85 CE
The Egyptian Samaritan Sethian Christian work called ‘Gospel of the Egyptians’ or, alternately, ‘The Holy Book of the Great Invisible Spirit’ is published giving the mythological life story of Seth, the ‘son of Adam’ (the ‘Son of Man’) whom the great Seth has put on.
It probably is composed after Trimorphic Protennoia or ‘The Three-formed (Divine) First Thought’ who was the first emanation from the godhead and can be considered equivalent to Sophia/Wisdom/ the Holy Spirit. She, also, “put on Jesus” but who seems to be only an add-on even in comparison to Gospel of the Egyptians in her long history.
Gospel of the Egyptians fills in more how Jesus is connected to Seth and the godhead and was written while several baptismal attendants named Micheus and Michar are still alive—as they are in Trimorphic Protennia. Gospel of the Egyptians is clearly a liturgical work used in services. It seems to have been channeled from Seth through the spirit of Eugnostos the Blessed who had begun the work of harmonizing Platonic and Samaritan metaphysics a century and a half earlier after the Greeks had imposed themselves militarily.
While the baptismal attendants have no negative connotation in the Gospel of the Egyptians, Micheus and Michar are, shockingly, schismatics in what must be the later work of the Apocalypse of Adam where the author is very unhappy that they have not just recognized Jesus as part of their tradition but have affiliated with Roman Christianity. In an even later work that is much more Christocentric, Micheus and Michar are referred to as “powers” and so must be in the spirit world overseeing baptismal ceremonies. They must have been formative and considered founders in the community split from Sethian Samaritanism to a Samaritan Christianity. That happened sometime late in the first century.
