He came to earth, lived our life, taught us what God is and what our world is, who we were, who we are and what we ought to be.

He left us the HOLY SPIRIT, who having come own at the same time as the Christ, remains on earth and in us.

It is expressed by saying that all the members of the pleroma form only one single body of which the Saviour is the head, and other people are the organs, and that what benefits one of these organs benefits them all.
