Unknown Sayings of Jesus

Unknown Sayings of Jesus Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A fresh translation of previously unknown or little known sayings of Jesus, drawn from a rich array of ancient sources.

Marvin Meyer's Definitive Translation of the Gospel of Thomas revealed to a delighted readership profound and provocative sayings of Jesus that are now considered authentic. In this intriguing new collection, he goes beyond the Gospel of Thomas and the New Testament to cull the most significant sayings of Jesus from all the texts of the ancient world — Christian and non-Christian.

Jesus stories and traditions spread far and wide over the first centuries of Christianity and appear in fragments in Islamic hadith and Gnostic texts. Here Meyer draws from these and other sources, including the fragmentary Gnostic Gospel just discovered in Berlin. He presents wise and important sayings of Jesus that are very early and true to Jesus' teachings. From the absorbing introduction and explanatory notes that put the sayings into perspective, to the compelling selection and original translation, this beautifully packaged book will have broad appeal to all those who love the Gospel of Thomas and the Gospels of the New Testament.
