The Gospel of Thomas

The Gospel of Thomas Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In 1945, a Coptic document containing sayings attributed to Jesus was discovered deep within an ancient Egyptian cave. This "lost gospel," the Gospel of Thomas, was written at the same time as the canonical Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, and is now considered one of the greatest religious discoveries of the twentieth century. It contains 150 sayings, approximately half of which are found in the New Testament—the other half of which are found only here. These new sayings offer an original perspective on Jesus' message. Most notably, they emphasize that the Kingdom of Heaven exists right before us in this present moment, and all that we have to do is recognize it. This edition includes an extensive foreword by Andrew Harvey, as well as commentary that explains biblical terms, philosophical concepts, and historic contexts.

Synopsis:

This scripture, which dates from the time of the four canonical Gospels, was discovered with the trove of ancient manuscripts at Nag Hammadi, Egypt, in 1945, and has become a modern classic. It is a collection of the sayings of Jesus without the biographical narrative or miracle stories of the New Testament Gospels. Many scholars believe it to represent Jesus's teaching in its purest form. Stevan Davies' translation is accompanied by his extensive, highly readable annotation, which illuminates the text and the details of its historical context.
