The Gospel of Thomas

Discovering the Lost Words of Jesus

Introduction by John Dominic Crossan

Dramatically discovered in Egypt in 1945 after being lost for 1,600 years, the Gospel of Thomas forces a reassessment of both Jesus and his message. This accessible translation of the text allows readers to see a Jesus unadulterated by 2,000 years of myth and interpretation - a strikingly different figure from the one in the New Testament.
