"Whoever finds the meaning of these words will not taste death." Gospel of Thomas
Christians have been thirsting for the wisdom and sayings of Jesus Christ for over 2000 years, constantly looking for new meaning to discover in Jesus' words, as offered in the ancient gospels of the New Testament in the Bible. Yet, the most accurate portrayal of the teachings of Jesus may have been intentionally hidden from Christians by the Church.
With the discovery of the Gnostic Gospel of St. Thomas in Nag Hammadi, Egypt in 1945, scholars of biblical history now believe that we have a document that contains some of Jesus' actual words--original quotes from Jesus Christ, as recorded in writing by one of his closest confidants, Saint Thomas.
In The Way of Thomas, author John Mabry, PhD in World Religions and professor of Comparative Theology at the Chaplaincy Institute offers new and relevant evidence about Thomas' gospel and the sayings of Jesus:
- What were Jesus' original teachings, and how do they differ from the story told today by the Christian church?
- What is the real story of early Christianity?
- Can we find a Jesus that is relevant as a spiritual guide for people today?
- These and many other questions are addressed in this popular presentation of the teachings of this mystical Christian text.
