Gnostic Christ. Prince of Peace. The annointed one.
The principle of Gnosticism lies in "knowledge." Gnostic Christians sought divine knowledge for the individual. Revelations of the true nature of God, secrets of the afterlife and words of power were part of their rites and celebrations.
Some Gnostics saw Christ (the anointed one) as a being of pure spirit and light leading us back to the Good God from the trap of the material world. Others saw him as a manifestation of the Logos (Creative Word) uttered by Sophia (Divine Wisdom). Still others celebrated a Tantric style union of Jesus and Mary Magdalene.
Jesus of Nazareth, the Son of God and the Virgin Mary through an immaculate conception, performed many miracles and cures, and preached a strong moral and ethical stance of peace and love. The revolutionary message of this young Hebrew upset both the Roman and Jewish authorities, until they eventually took his life. He was then resurrected by his father, the Semite creator god Yaweh (Jehovah).
He is shown here as the Prince of Peace, reigning in the Kingdom of Heaven, filled with Light, and full of Divine Authority. He that hath ears let him hear.
