Example text

Again, if Paul went to Rome as a prisoner, : We Who having appealed to Caesar, how was it that he lived, apparently a free man, in his own dwelling, and that not a. word is said about any trial ? It does not seem to be in accordance with Roman judicial procedure that a formal appeal to the Roman court should be completely ignored for two years, if not more. So far as the record goes, the appeal was never heard.

But for the Gnostic Rl the Christian is a joint-heir with the pneumatic Christ and a true spiritual son of God. The bond of union between Christ Jesus and the Christian is the common possession of the spirit which makes both him and them sons of God.
