This is from the Gospel of Truth, a Christian text from before Roman Catholic persecution. Codex I #3 Attridge and McRae translation. Nag Hammadi
As in the case of a person of whom some are ignorant, so-for what did the totality have need of if not knowledge regarding the father? He became a
guide, restful and leaderly. In schools he appeared, (and) he spoke the Word as a teacher. There came the men wise in their own estimation, putting
him to the test. But he confounded them because they were foolish. They hated him because they were not really wise.
He draws himself down to death, though eternal life clothes him
He has brought back many from error
While his wisdom contemplates the Word, and his teaching utters it, his knowledge has revealed.
As in the case of the ignorant person, when he comes to have knowledge his ignorance vanishes of itself.
Those are my favorite, I read it this morning and recommend reading it.
