Origin of the World (Nag Hammadi)
On the Origin of the World is a Gnostic work dealing with creation and end times. It was found amongst the texts in the Nag Hammadi library, in Codex II and Codex XIII, immediately following the Reality of the Rulers, with many parallels between the two texts In particular, it rethinks the entire story of Genesis, and positions Yaldabaoth (the Demiurge) as the creator of the world, fulfilling the role of God in Genesis. Furthermore, the Serpent in the Garden of Eden is depicted as a hero sent by Sophia to guide mankind towards enlightenment.

MetaTaPhysika: ORIGIN OF THE WORLD: A Biblical Perspective
The Biblical Perspective: Significance The issue of the origin of the World, and by extension the origin of the Cosmos, is one of the most hotly debated questions of all time, as well as one of the most important. The biblical account of the origin of the World sets apart the biblical Creator from all other conceptions of God in the Ancient Near East (hereafter ANE) as well as in virtually all thought up to the present.
