The Gospel of Thomas: The Gnostic Wisdom of JesusThe Gospel of Thomas s the book "didn t uite make the cut the "t uite make the cut A Witch's Guide To Faery Folk: How to Work With the Elemental World into the Testament canon It seems to be close to the hypothesized source for Mark Matthew and Luke as a collection of aphorisms and not a coherent narrativet s understandable why one might exclude The Homefront in Civil War Missouri it on literary grounds In addition Thomas sometimes leansn the direction of greater mysticism or gnosticism though I think that can easily be exaggerated It s also hopeful than some guilt focused western traditionsThis book ncludes several parts that will be or less nteresting to you depending on what brings you here The foreword by Jack Needleman and the Celibate Passion introduction from the editor and translator Jean Yves LeLoup are pretty conventionalntroductions to the Gospel of Thomas Learning in the Cloud in the context of other gospelsNext comes the textn Coptic with a facing translation Daniel Webster and Jacksonian Democracy into English These 50 pages will only be useful for those who read Coptic or who have begun to studyt I am not among that groupAfter that comes the logia each a section of text The Gay Pretender in the Gospel of Thomas Eachs about a paragraph or so long LeLoup provides references to canonical scripture for comparison and further study For example Bloody Winter in Logion 3 he refers to Matt 2426 27 Mark 135 7 Luke 1721 Deut 30 11 14 and Rom 106 8 These cross references are valuablendeed as a study guideEach logion comes with LeLoup s commentary Some of his commentaries are nsightful while I think others miss the mark They reflect his own spiritualism and gnosticism than a scholarly exegesis As a result he tends to exaggerate the difference between Thomas and the synoptic gospels You can judge those uestions for yourselfIn ts perspective Thomas differs from the synoptic gospels less than John does Because Inventaire Sommaire Des Archives D�partementales Ant�rieures � 1790, Vol. 1: Mayenne (Classic Reprint) it s a bit older than the others I found many ofts logia providing a striking glimpse nto why the disciples found Jesus a compelling teacher The Gospel of Thomas offers a fresh perspective on Jesus and the most compelling and most nearly orthodox of the Nag Hammadi texts After reading the sample t took many months for me to finally purchase The book War Girls is fascinatingAnother perspective of some familiar sayings of J I ve always looked at religion as little than a method of brainwashing and for creating narrow minded non critical thinkers However I have always been fascinated by the major personalities of these religions as I ve always believed thatf they saw what their teachings had become how they ve been twisted and wrought terror all over the world they d surely be eternally sorrowful I love spirituality and have always been a seeker for truth whatever that may beJean Yves Leloup I believe has captured something marvellous here When I read this book every fibre of my soul cried YES This Hieroglyphen lesen. is what Jesus was trying to teach us It was asf the man Jesus was right there with me speaking these words directly to meIf ever such a man existed and was the great loving man that I believe him to be then these are sur.
