Seth

Seth, in the Bible, son of Adam and Eve, father of Enosh. In the chronology in the Gospel of St. Luke, Seth is an ancestor of Jesus. The Nag Hammadi codices preserve revelatory discourses ascribed to or allegedly emanating from Seth. The Second Treatise of Seth emphasizes the docetic nature of the Passion of Jesus. The Three Steles of Seth are liturgical pieces.
