The Gospel of Thomas


Gospel of Thomas

This is the fourth edition of this classic translation of the Gospel of Thomas. It has been done directly from the original Coptic and Greek of the ancient manuscript discovered in Egypt. Its aim is to make available to the reader the intended meanings of the sayings with as little as possible coloration from extraneous sources.

The presentation of the Gospel is done in hand-drawn calligraphy, to help get closer to the original manuscript. The sayings are given in the short phrases identified by the French scholars of the Association Métanoïa. These reveal the way Jesus spoke.

The text of the Gospel is preceded by an Introduction, and is followed by Paraphrases or more liberal translations to help with some sayings that might be difficult. A full set of Notes follow to give much detailed information on the meaning of specific Coptic words and phrases.
