This study is an examination and interpretation of the hymn and the dance in chapters 94 and 96 in light of the Acts' theology according to the apocryphal Acts of John, where Jesus introduced to his disciples a mystery rite that included a hymn and a dance. It examines the relationship behind this secret sacrament, the Johannine Acts, and Christian Gnosticism. The text also looks at the sacrament's structure and interprets this mystery according to the theology of the Acts of John.
