In the first century many texts were written about the life and times and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth. Four of them made it into the Bible and the rest were scattered, lost, or intentionally destroyed as heresy. In 1945 a complete, intact text of the Gospel of Thomas was discovered in a cache of scrolls in Egypt. Join us as we explore this ancient window into that heady first century before the establishment of the official Church. How is the Gospel of Thomas similar and different from the synoptic gospels and John? What do those differences reveal about the tensions in the early Jesus movement? Might the Gospel of Thomas move us closer to understanding the real Jesus?
