The work of Jesus is central to the transformation of the Gnostic Tradition. Jesus as a pre-existent spirit; the Arch-Angel Michael took human form so he could experience and overcome the power of the Archons and the Dialectic World, and show the way through which members of the Adamic Lifestream could do likewise.
He was born and lived as a human with the same potential for failing; same potential for sin as all humans, he experienced the Dialectic tides and overcome them. He travelled the world in his "so-called" missing years, studying in both India and Britain, bringing the threads of the Mystery Tradition to a common climax. While at the same time achieving a mastery of himself and the world around him. The baptism of Jesus shows clearly his high state of Initiation, his energy field has been cleansed of Dialectic elements by Sophia and in recognition of his achievement, the Father (the Lord of Wisdom) acknowledges his new state. Michael is now Jesus the Christ, the Christ state being the achievement of communication with the Mind of God or the Logos.
As soon as Jesus was baptised, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and lighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, "This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased." Matthew 3:16,17
Jesus was now in a position to transform the human situation, as a Son of God (a being whose essence is in commune with the Logos and whose actions embody the Holy Spirit), he now went about his task of redeeming Israel. It is quite clear from the many references in the Gospels that Jesus came only for Israel. He was the Messiah from the Land of Light come for his people.
These twelve Jesus sent out with the following instructions: "Do not go among the Gentiles or enter any town of the Samaritans, go rather to the lost sheep of Israel.
As you go, preach this message: 'The kingdom of heaven is near.' He answered, "I was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel." Matthew 10:5-7 Matthew 15:24
Jesus however had more to achieve than simply transmit the Gnosis to Israel, Jesus had to initiate the current which would open the door to the Mysteries. Knowledge, in the sense of doctrine or belief was not enough, Jesus himself had to spiritually transform the nature of the Dialectic plane, so redemption from the Archons could become possible. Prior to the advent of Jesus no escape from the World of the Archons was available ! Even the astral/etheric worlds were under the influence of the fallen system. Jesus therefore came to demonstrate that the power of death inherent in the Dialectic kingdom could be overcome.
