The Births of Adam and Christ The Gospel of Philip







The Births of Adam and Christ
Adam came from two virgins, the spirit and the virgin earth. Christ was born of a virgin to correct the fall that occurred in the beginning.
This section is based on Genesis 2:7, where it is said that man was created from the dust of the earth, and that Elohim breathed into his nostrils the spirit of the breath of life.

two virgins the virgin spirit and the virgin earth

Adamah means "earth" in biblical Hebrew, thus Adam is the earthly man, which explains his being born from the virgin earth. The Gospel of Philip has already established that the spirit is female and is a virgin.

Adam [mankind] came into being from two virgins, from the Spirit [“elohim” – holy spirit] and from the virgin earth [the physical body (dust thereof) – the living soul with an individual spirit consciousness]. Christ therefore, was born from a virgin [in a physical body just as Adam’s was] to rectify the Fall which occurred in the beginning. (Philip 68)

The Fall of mankind was reversed in the Christ. In the beginning of this physical plane, the Divine Ones fell to produce mankind. In the Meridian of Time, mortality was lifted up in the Virgin Mary to produce a Divine Son. The Incarnation was the beginning of redemption from the Fall.
