Adam’s Baptism – from the Ginza (Mandaen gnostic scriptures).
The planets stand there,
they are bound by fetters and say:
When Adam fled from us,
our watch-houses were destroyed.
When Adam rose from us,
our radiance was soon taken away.
He rose up and ascended to the House of Life,
they, the uthras, washed him in the Jordan and protected him.
They washed him and protected him in the Jordan,
they placed their right hand on him.
They baptized him with their baptism
and strengthened him with their pure words.
