The Secret Book of John is a revelation discourse delivered by the Savior to the disciple John, son of Zebedee. Why did Sethian gnostic authors write pseudonymously? In addition to making a claim to authority, gnostic pseudepigraphy, exemplified by The Three Tablets of Seth, was multiple and performative, implying that the self is multiple-a manifestation of selfhood at different levels of a single reality-and that performing one’s self as multiple provides a path to higher knowledge of one’s self and thus of God.

No less than eleven of the fifty-three treatises of the Nag Hammadi Library fit the designation 'Sethian Gnostic'. They reveal the existence of a hitherto unrecognized religious competitor of early Christianity. With its own roots in second temple Judaism and in various first and second century sectarian baptismal movements, Sethian Gnosticism is now the earliest form of Gnosticism for which we possess a great deal of textual evidence.

Part 3 explicitly compares the Sethian tradition with Middle Platonism and Neoplatonism. Turner divides the Sethian material into two broad categories: those of the ascent pattern and those of the descent pattern. Following H. M.
