9781516935185: The Gospel of Thomas: A New Translation for Spiritual Seekers

"These are the hidden sayings that the living Jesus spoke and Didymos Judas Thomas wrote down." With this opening statement, the Gospel of Thomas, legendary Apostle to the East, introduces a startlingly profound list of Jesus' ancient Wisdom sayings. Similar to the collections of quotations copied by the Gospels of Matthew and Luke, Thomas' Gospel contains a hundred and fourteen sayings, half of which don't appear in the New Testament.

Once known from only a handful of ancient sources, third-century Greek fragments of this Gospel first turned up at the end of the nineteenth century – but it wasn't until the middle of the twentieth that a complete Coptic manuscript was discovered. The Gospel of Thomas: A New Translation for Spiritual Seekers not only cuts through the ensuing debate, but also presents the very first public domain translation of this amazing discovery.

About the Author:

"Mark Mattison's translation of the Gospel of Thomas not only provides us with a fresh, public domain version of the text, but also offers fascinating insights into the translator's craft. Mr. Mattison carefully describes his efforts in the chapters preceding the gospel, following up with careful endnotes on his translation decisions."

- Bishop Lainie Petersen
