Jesus the Splendour


Jesus the Splendour is the pre-existent aspect of Jesus in Manichaeism.[1]
He brings knowledge about the secrets of the past, the present and prophecy of
the future on one hand, and the ability to differentiate between good and evil
towards humanity, on the other.[2] Accordingly, it is also Jesus who frees Adam
and advises him to eat from the Tree of knowledge to escape the prison of the
Prince of Darkness.[3]

Kephalaia
While Jesus is only rarely called Jesus the Splendour in other Manichaen Jesus the Splendour, Adam and Eve
writings, he is commonly called as such in the Kephalaia of the Teacher.[4] In
the Kephalaia, Jesus is an emanation of the Father of Greatness and apparently
identical with the Third Envoy and the living word, brought forth to restore the damage done by the rebellion of the
Archons.[5] When Jesus the Splendour descends to the earth, he later takes on the shape of flesh to manifestate himself in
the material world.[6]
