At the very beginning of the twentieth century three separate fragments from Greek versions of the Gospel of Thomas were discovered during archeological excavations of an ancient site in Oxyrhynchus, Egypt. Fragments of the Gospel of Mary were also found at Oxyrhynchus. Translations of the sayings found in these Greek fragments of Thomas are presented here, followed by versions of the same sayings as they appear in the Coptic manuscript found at Nag Hammadi we have used the Lambdin translation of GTh.

The Gospel of Thomas Fragments from Oxyrhynchus. In early Christianity there existed traditions, often geographical localized, that honored a specific Christian apostolic figure as patron and initiatory source.

The Pauline and Johannine traditions are commonly recognized examples of this early division in Christianity, and each left its own textual legacy.

Though less well understood, there apparently also existed a Thomas tradition. Geographically, the name of Thomas was associate with the region of Syria, perhaps because Thomas or disciples claiming him as apostolic sponsor once located themselves in the area.

Three important documents from the Thomas tradition have nonetheless survived: The latter two were recovered in the Nag Hammadi Library. Several copies of the third text, the Acts of Thomas , survived over the centuries in monastic collections.

Imbedded within the Acts of Thomas we find a beautiful and complete statement of a classic Gnostic myth describing the exile and redemption of the soul.

The text is known as the "Hymn of the Pearl". What astounds most is that such a clear rendition of the Gnostic mythos was allowed to survive within a text which resided for centuries on the back shelves of orthodox archives.

Important Note: Virtually all digital versions of the Acts of Thomas found on the internet are copies of a single file that has resided in our Archives since Unfortunately we have recently found that this original file had an internal formatting error. As a result, many short sections of text are lost in pirated copies of the file, making the text unintelligible in several places.

We ask those who have reproduced this file to take note of the problem and help correct the error.

Scholars speculate that the works were buried in response to a letter from Bishop Athanasius declaring a strict canon of Christian scripture.

The Coptic-language text, the second of seven contained in what modern-day scholars have designated as Codex II, is composed of sayings attributed to Jesus.

The introduction states: Some critical scholars suspect that this reference to the Apostle Thomas is false, and that therefore the true author is unknown. It is possible that the document originated within a school of early Christians , possibly proto-Gnostics.

Some verses are similar to verses in the Quran. While the Gospel of Thomas does not directly point to Jesus' divinity, it also does not directly contradict it. When asked his identity in the Gospel of Thomas, Jesus usually deflects, ambiguously asking the disciples why they do not see what is right in front of them, similar to some passages in the canonical gospels like John The Gospel of Thomas is very different in tone and structure from other New Testament apocrypha and the four Canonical Gospels.

Unlike the canonical Gospels, it is not a narrative account of the life of Jesus; instead, it consists of logia sayings attributed to Jesus, sometimes stand-alone, sometimes embedded in short dialogues or parables.

The text contains a possible allusion to the death of Jesus in logion 65 [10] Parable of the Wicked Tenants , paralleled in the Synoptic Gospels , but does not mention his crucifixion , his resurrection , or the final judgment ; nor does it mention a messianic understanding of Jesus. Bishop Eusebius included it among a group of books that he believed to be not only spurious, but "the fictions of heretics".

However, it is not clear whether he was referring to this Gospel of Thomas or one of the other texts attributed to Thomas. It was first published in a photographic edition in Robinson edited the first complete collection of English translations of the Nag Hammadi texts. After the Coptic version of the complete text was discovered in at Nag Hammadi, scholars soon realized that three different Greek text fragments previously found at Oxyrhynchus the Oxyrhynchus Papyri , also in Egypt, were part of the Gospel of Thomas.

Prior to the Nag Hammadi library discovery, the sayings of Jesus found in Oxyrhynchus were known simply as Logia Iesu. The wording of the Coptic sometimes differs markedly from the earlier Greek Oxyrhynchus texts, the extreme case being that the last portion of logion 30 in the Greek is found at the end of logion 77 in the Coptic. This fact, along with the quite different wording Hippolytus uses when apparently quoting it see below , suggests that the Gospel of Thomas "may have circulated in more than one form and passed through several stages of redaction.

Although it is generally thought that the Gospel of Thomas was first composed in Greek, there is evidence that the Coptic Nag Hammadi text is a translation from Syriac see Syriac origin. The earliest surviving written references to the Gospel of Thomas are found in the writings of Hippolytus of Rome c. They transmit a tradition concerning this in the Gospel entitled "According to Thomas," which states expressly, "The one who seeks me will find me in children of seven years and older, for there, hidden in the fourteenth aeon , I am revealed.

This appears to be a reference to saying 4 of Thomas, although the wording differs significantly. Origen listed the "Gospel according to Thomas" as being among the heterodox apocryphal gospels known to him Hom.

In the 4th and 5th centuries, various Church Fathers wrote that the Gospel of Thomas was highly valued by Mani. Assigning a date to the Gospel of Thomas is very complex because it is difficult to know precisely to what a date is being assigned. Scholars have proposed a date as early as 40 AD or as late as AD, depending upon whether the Gospel of Thomas is identified with the original core of sayings, or with the author's published text, or with the Greek or Coptic texts, or with parallels in other literature.

Valantasis and other scholars argue that it is difficult to date Thomas because, as a collection of logia without a narrative framework, individual sayings could have been added to it gradually over time. Porter dates the Gospel of Thomas much later, to AD. Robert E.

Van Voorst states:. Most interpreters place its writing in the second century, understanding that many of its oral traditions are much older. Scholars generally fall into one of two main camps: Theissen and Merz argue the genre of a collection of sayings was one of the earliest forms in which material about Jesus was handed down.

Stevan L. Davies argues that the apparent independence of the ordering of sayings in Thomas from that of their parallels in the synoptics shows that Thomas was not evidently reliant upon the canonical gospels and probably predated them. Theissen and Merz give sayings 31 and 65 as examples of this. Koester also argues that the absence of narrative materials such as those found in the canonical gospels in Thomas makes it unlikely that the gospel is "an eclectic excerpt from the gospels of the New Testament".

Another argument for an early date is what some scholars have suggested is an interplay between the Gospel of John and the logia of Thomas. Parallels between the two have been taken to suggest that Thomas' logia preceded John's work, and that the latter was making a point-by-point riposte to Thomas, either in real or mock conflict. This seeming dialectic has been pointed out by several New Testament scholars, notably Gregory J. Pagels, for example, says that John's gospel makes two references to the inability of the world to recognize the divine light.

John's gospel is the only canonical one that gives Thomas the Apostle a dramatic role and spoken part, and Thomas is the only character therein described as having apistos unbelief , despite the failings of virtually all the Johannine characters to live up to the author's standards of belief. With respect to the famous story of " Doubting Thomas ", [43] it is suggested [40] that John may have been denigrating or ridiculing a rival school of thought.

In another apparent contrast, John's text matter-of-factly presents a bodily resurrection as if this is a sine qua non of the faith; in contrast, Thomas' insights about the spirit-and-body are more nuanced. Again, an apparently denigrating portrayal in the "Doubting Thomas" story may either be taken literally, or as a kind of mock "comeback" to Thomas' logia: After all, Thomas' thoughts about the spirit and body are really not so different from those which John has presented elsewhere.


Pagels interprets this as signifying one-upmanship by John, who is forcing Thomas to acknowledge Jesus' bodily nature. She writes that " Albert Hogeterp argues that the Gospel's saying 12, which attributes leadership of the community to James the Just rather than to Peter , agrees with the description of the early Jerusalem church by Paul in Galatians 2: Moreover, there are some sayings, principally log. In saying 13, Peter and Matthew are depicted as unable to understand the true significance or identity of Jesus.

Patterson argues that this can be interpreted as a criticism against the school of Christianity associated with the Gospel of Matthew, and that "[t]his sort of rivalry seems more at home in the first century than later", when all the apostles had become revered figures. According to Meyer, Thomas's saying The late camp dates Thomas some time after AD, generally in the mid-2nd century. Porter dates Thomas much later, to the mid-third century.

Several scholars have argued that the sayings in Thomas reflect conflations and harmonisations dependent on the canonical gospels. For example, saying 10 and 16 appear to contain a redacted harmonisation of Luke In this case it has been suggested that the dependence is best explained by the author of Thomas making use of an earlier harmonised oral tradition based on Matthew and Luke. Evans also subscribes to this view and notes that "Over half of the New Testament writings are quoted, paralleled, or alluded to in Thomas Another argument made for the late dating of Thomas is based upon the fact that Saying 5 in the original Greek Papyrus Oxyrhynchus seems to follow the vocabulary used in the gospel according to Luke Luke 8: According to this argument — which presupposes firstly the rectitude of the two-source hypothesis widely held among current New Testament scholars [ citation needed ] , in which the author of Luke is seen as having used the pre-existing gospel according to Mark plus a lost Q document to compose his gospel — if the author of Thomas did, as Saying 5 suggests — refer to a pre-existing gospel according to Luke, rather than Mark's vocabulary, then the gospel of Thomas must have been composed after both Mark and Luke the latter of which is dated to between 60 AD and 90 AD.

Another saying that employs similar vocabulary to that used in Luke rather than Mark is Saying 31 in the original Greek Papyrus Oxyrhynchus 1 , where Luke 4: The word dektos in all its cases and genders is clearly typical of Luke, since it is only employed by him in the canonical gospels Luke 4: Thus, the argument runs, the Greek Thomas has clearly been at least influenced by Luke's characteristic vocabulary.

Porter states that, because around half of the sayings in Thomas have parallels in the synoptic gospels, it is "possible that the sayings in the Gospel of Thomas were selected directly from the canonical gospels and were either reproduced more or less exactly or amended to fit the author's distinctive theological outlook. Meier, scholars predominantly conclude that Thomas depends on or harmonizes the Synoptics.

Several scholars argue that Thomas is dependent on Syriac writings, including unique versions of the canonical gospels. They contend that many sayings of the Gospel of Thomas are more similar to Syriac translations of the canonical gospels than their record in the original Greek. Craig A. Evans states that saying 54 in Thomas , which speaks of the poor and the kingdom of heaven, is more similar to the Syriac version of Matthew 5: Klyne Snodgrass notes that saying 65—66 of Thomas containing the Parable of the Wicked Tenants appears to be dependent on the early harmonisation of Mark and Luke found in the old Syriac gospels.

He concludes that, " Thomas , rather than representing the earliest form, has been shaped by this harmonizing tendency in Syria.

If the Gospel of Thomas were the earliest, we would have to imagine that each of the evangelists or the traditions behind them expanded the parable in different directions and then that in the process of transmission the text was trimmed back to the form it has in the Syriac Gospels. It is much more likely that Thomas, which has a Syrian provenance, is dependent on the tradition of the canonical Gospels that has been abbreviated and harmonized by oral transmission.

Nicholas Perrin argues that Thomas is dependent on the Diatessaron , which was composed shortly after by Tatian in Syria. Williams analyzed Perrin's alleged Syriac catchwords and found them implausible. Bart Ehrman argues that the historical Jesus was an apocalyptic preacher, and that his apocalyptic beliefs are recorded in the earliest Christian documents: Mark and the authentic Pauline epistles.

The earliest Christians believed Jesus would soon return, and their beliefs are echoed in the earliest Christian writings. The Gospel of Thomas proclaims that the Kingdom of God is already present for those who understand the secret message of Jesus Saying , and lacks apocalyptic themes.

Because of this, Ehrman argues, the Gospel of Thomas was probably composed by a Gnostic some time in the early 2nd century. Wright , former Anglican bishop and professor of New Testament history, also sees the dating of Thomas in the 2nd or 3rd century. Wright's reasoning for this dating is that the "narrative framework" of 1st-century Judaism and the New Testament is radically different from the worldview expressed in the sayings collected in the Gospel of Thomas.

It is simply the case that, on good historical grounds, it is far more likely that the book represents a radical translation, and indeed subversion, of first-century Christianity into a quite different sort of religion, than that it represents the original of which the longer gospels are distortions In other words, you are unable to accept what if not familiar.

It is significant that Thomas simply quoted Jesus, leaving the story-telling for the other gospel writers. The following link will take you to a place beyond understanding.

I present you now with one of the two holy sources of OUR era: The link which follows is geared in the direction of the present discussion: Whether Thomas is more or less authentic than the Bible we surely cannot know, since no videos remain from the first century.

Who did what, with what and to whom, we will surely never know and to me it matters not at all. Perhaps if it seems to matter one is looking in the wrong place. Did Shakespeare write Shakespeare? Does it matter? Either way it is truth.

I find Thomas the most charming and insightful Gospel. With wry wit and savage irony, it suggests a wicked sense of humour and intelligence Jesus must have had, in contrast to the sometimes insipid and credulous Jesus of the canon. For this reason, intuitively, I suspect the canon is actually much more corrupted since it had an an agenda, i.

Conversely, Thomas, existed in a time capsule, and is timeless unvarnished, unpretentious truth if read rich metaphorically. It is to the listener that music either sounds moving or not, no music critic can make you like it. Thomas is a book of insightful jokes which ruthlessly reveal truth.

They work! Doubting Thomas is all im hearing. If your thinking clearly and truly putting Christ first in your life, you would find these passages helpful to the advancement of your soal into the light. Thomas was the last of Gods followers to admit what He had witnessed was actually the truth the light and the way.

So please cut the man some slack.

For me knowing the church rejected these sayings gives them even more power of truth. Remember this: This hole premis undermines the physical church and that means no money for them. If you take away their money their bank fails and all their buildings and churches fail. Unless they served wild honey and locusts for dinner and gunnie sacks for clothing. John the Baptist lived and served Christ in the wild which in my mind Is the true church of the living God. Peter John. Jewish priests, did everything including having the romans crucify jesus to prove he was mortal and get him out of there hair.

No living person can possibly know the truth just from listening to another, yet all religions proclaim to know truth from their written word, written by another. After having attended several seminars and heard scholars of different denominations speak, I saw the Gospel of Thomas is accepted as authoritative by textural scholars of all Judeo-Christian persuasions. It informs the text.

I am 82, and yes I was taught what Catholicism meant as a child Catholic grammar and high school. As an adult, I continually read, took adult classes still do , and I am not alone in this. What is energy- well that is God of course— and somehow we all, not just the current living, but all who has done so through out all time fits in that little energy ball- to which — it is only little to some human eyes but it is the infinite to some others eyes or whatever they call them….

Its similar to sufi islam. Gospel of tomas carries beautiful messages from the lord that everyone should read and try to understand. Pls do not condem any beliefs.

Its difficult to understand every word as they meant not what u know but what in you. I truly believe that the chosen Apostles ie: Thomas and Phillip would not endeavour to write any form of doctrine without the divine intervention of Jesus Christ. The versified passages has no real substance which is contradictory to the original text and divine qualities of the Lord our Saviour. I refuse to believe that Jesus said: If you preach another gospel of Jesus Christ let him be accursed Gal 1: Gospel of our supernatural Father of our souls is known to the people of holy spirit or common sense.

Then comes the Valley of Love, the limitless area in which the Seeker is completely consumed by a thirst for the Beloved. Love is followed by the Valley of Intuitive Knowledge, in which the heart receives directly the illumination of Truth and an experience of God.

In the Valley of Detachment the traveler becomes liberated from desires and dependence …The fifth valley is the Valley of Unification. Now the Seeker understands that what seemed to him to be different things and ideas are, in actuality, only one. In the Valley of Astonishment, the traveler finds bewilderment and also love.

He no longer understands knowledge in the same way as formerly. Something, which is called love, replaces it. The seventh and last valley is that of Death. Stand thou upright, O Ladder of Set!

Wallis Budge, vol. Isaiah Had it not been for an alert monk who hid the cache of scrolls at Nag Hammadi, the only reference we would have had for the Gospel of Thomas is the mere mention of this book by the church historian Eusebius, along with other books that were edited out of existence.

Human beings are so confused in their minds! They do not see the way of truth in the Torah. Torah calls out to them every day, in love, but they do not want to turn their heads. Even though I have said that Torah removes a word from her sheath, is seen for a moment, then quickly hides away — that is certainly true — but when she reveals herself from her sheath and hides herself right away, she does so for those who know her intimately.

Unfortunately we do not have an Gnostics or their agents available to defend themselves and their purposes. It is so easy to jump upon the band wagon and criticize from early training or conditioning. Hoffman, p. As Egyptian influence declined in the land of Canaan, the kings of Judah adopted the symbols of Egyptian sovereignty patterned after the lion statues sphinx and the tribe of Judah is associated with the lion Genesis This would be an example of a man eating a lion and the lion becoming a man and with the growing influence of the Neo-Assyrian Empire is the lion who eats the man and the lion becomes a man, with the Assyrians use of iconography having common affinities with those of the Judahites such as the tree of life motif from Genesis 2: The date-palm was the sacred tree of the god Ea at Eridu, whose sacred number was 40, as is attested in the frequent use of this number in the wilderness narratives and it was in the late 8th century B.

The vetting process of the Christians that put together the Word of God, disproved enough of Thomas to discard it. Be very careful what one picks and chooses. That is, an 8th century B. King Ahaz also used the priest Uriah 2 Kings For more on the discussion regarding an 8th century B. I incorrectly said Timnah the Philistine city instead of Timna the copper mine near Ezion-geber on the Gulf of Eliat where the ancient Israelites left their camp to travel to Kadesh Numbers Until the discovery of the Egyptian temple of Hathor at Timna we were unable to identify Miriam and her tambourine with the goddess Hathor and her sistrum, or the connection between the place name Kadesh and the Canaanite goddess Qadesh, whom the Egyptians incorporated into their pantheon under Ramsess II.

Hathor was portrayed as a cow covered with little crosses representing stars as she was referred to as the Heavenly Cow. Wallis Budge, Gramercy Books, p.

We live in a world, in general, that spurns and disparages any religious viewpoint that vilifies matter. The view of the ancient gnostics, the ancient Pythagoreans and, to a large extent, Plato and his school, and later Plotinus, are all centrally concerned with the degradation of spirit by degrees lower and lower—to pure death, that is, matter—rather than the living spirit. Most liberals in the US on the two coasts at least profess that if they had any religion it would surely be Buddhism.

Interesting, since like the ancients, in the Buddhist mahajana view matter considered in itself is mere delusion. Or rather it is emptiness just as emptiness is it. Must we I wonder dismiss a perennial spiritualist philosophy taking different forms in antiquity and in the present that constitute that closest literate example that we have to a perennial philosophy, dismissing it with contempt and without even the need to hold conversation on the subject?

We all of us make assumptions without knowing they are only assumptions, can it be that we can examine these assumptions without attempting to violently impose them without discussion? I ask this as a plea, not a demand.

From what I understand the gnostic gospels are not considered credible because for one, their authorship is in question…Just about every book carries the name of a New Testament character: However, they are dated about years after Christ and no credible scholar believes any of them could have been written by their namesake.

Thus, they lack reliability because of their late dating, questionable authorship, lack of historical data, and contradictions to other scriptural writings held to a higher standard. When in doubt, throw it out. See link below http: Paul was a gnostic and so was the author of the Gospel of John who makes reference to the bronze serpent John 3: We now know that the Midianites had a bronze serpent at the site of the sanctuary at Timnah, so this is an Israelite version of the Egyptian cobra god Thoth, god of writing.

I think that many of the teachings of the new testament are Gnostic, if you see the beginning, Yeshua was a Hebrew. How we can now call the Gospel of Tomas, as gnostic. No one of the Saulo writings the base of the christianism are a pure Hebrew teach… I believe that the Gospel of Tomas give us information about Yeshua and his greek and judaic roots.

As a whole, the sayings are in the New Testament! A person that speaks Hebrew, can see, that many of the sayings were manipulated to make Jesus seem like he was anti -Semitic! The New Testament is full of lies! In December , near Nag Hammadi, in Upper Egypt, peasants chanced upon 13 papyrus manuscripts containing 52 texts. These fourth-century documents have been attributed to a religious and philosophical movement called Gnosticism.

Mixing elements of mysticism, paganism, Greek philosophy, Judaism, and Christianity, the movement was a contaminating influence on some professed Christians. It portrays Judas in a positive light as the only apostle who really understood who Jesus was. Matthew I can easily see we do NOT need the so called Gospel?
