Sin in Valentinianism Nov 19, 2009
It is in the broad second century Christian context that the use of sin in Valentinianism becomes especially intriguing. Sin itself may turn out to be relatively insignificant to Valentinians, but its surprising presence in the Valentinian texts from Nag Hammadi provides added incentive to reassess this movement. It is as though a few more letters were discovered in which the apostle Paul addressed churches he had founded (say in Petra and Bosra) and the recipients were identified as Jewish Christians. This might not change one's overall view of Paul, but it would surely force a reassessment of the Pauline material. A study of sin in Valentinianism, then, is an intrinsic part of the fresh examination of that movement which has begun after Nag Hammadi.
