Because of my love for the Gnostics (and ancient mystery religions in general) I have thought it useful to update my blog header image and the ‘Of the Muses’ (upper-left column) information.
I will not give out the passage of the Greek text (though many of you students of intertextuality and mimesis will pick up on it right away, I hope), but the link in my ‘Of the Muses’ reference is to 11Q13. See if you can pick up on all the mysteries. In the words of Paul, I suspect that only the mature (the τελείοις) will understand.
As Paul wrote:
No, we declare God’s wisdom a mystery that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began. (1 Cor 2.7)
Symbolically, then, why not include some in my blog header? I can’t think of a reason. Kudos to those who find it.
