[It is always the general rule of thumb not to solely take the author’s word throughout these studies, but to pray and seek the face of Yahuah for one’s self, and let the Spirit lead you into all truth (John 16:13-15).]
Wrongly taken over by the Gnostics; sadly dismissed by Christians: The Gospel of Thomas is one of the most misunderstood and misplaced texts whose truth is still waiting to be unveiled. Discover why these ARE the genuine lost sayings of the biblical Yahushua Ha’Masiach (Jesus the Christ).
These are the obscure sayings that the living Yahushua uttered, and which Didymus Jude Thomas wrote down.Gospel of Thomas, Prologue (Layton)
The Truth About the (REAL) Gospel of Thomas
The point at hand derives from mere common sense, a study of the actual text, and discernment based on deep sound biblical doctrine; elements seemingly lost in our modern day conception of the Gospel of Thomas.
The most authoritative record we have of Yahudah Ta’om Didymus (more commonly known in the Gospels as Judas ‘Thomas, called Didymus‘ [Luke 6:16, John 11:16, etc.]) life after the accounts given to us in the Gospels, are likely found in a series of texts called the Apocryphal Acts of the Apostles. Here are the audios and PDFs if interested.
As these texts show, there is much of Yah‘s [God’s] wisdom and knowledge to glean from, yet how accurate these texts truly are to actual historical accounts, of course is up for scholarly debate.
In a nutshell, the Apocryphal Acts of Thomas entail his on-going ministry in India, after Christ was crucified, and the Resurrection.
The truth nobody seems to know
When looking at the facts through an unbiased lens, it makes perfect sense for the Gospel of Thomas to have the eastern meditative overtones the text possesses. The truth is, these sayings are not meditations from which the Gnostic community has capitalized on, but when actually studying the text — with the wisdom of sound biblical doctrine — it becomes quite clear that these 114 Sayings are indeed words uttered from the living Yahushua Ha’Mashiach [Jesus Christ] recorded in our Bibles!
Sadly, the mind-set of the mainstream Church, teaching that anything outside our Bibles is not valid — or even heresy! — has caused a veil of blindness over the Christian community; depriving the extent of the Kingdom of the very principle thing we to be sought after — wisdom; revelation (Proverbs 4:1-12).
This series is going to break each saying down; mirroring each one to sound biblical theology.
Being consistent with the next biblically valid 113 Sayings (in the hope that this series will show), it seems the Prologue of this text would serve no different: —Yes!, the Apostle Thomas very likely originally recorded these sayings from his accounts walking with Messiah. It seems very little, if anybody has caught on to this…
