Sayings of St. Thomas’ Gospel

St.Thomas

Jesus said, “Now the sower went out, took a handful (of seeds), and scattered them. Some fell on the road; the birds came and gathered them up. Others fell on the rock, did not take root in the soil, and did not produce ears. And others fell on thorns; they choked the seed(s) and worms ate them. And others fell on the good soil and it produced good fruit: it bore sixty per measure and a hundred and twenty per measure.”

Jesus said, “I shall choose you, one out of a thousand, and two out of ten thousand, and they shall stand as a single one.”

Jesus said, “If the flesh came into being because of spirit, it is a wonder. But if spirit came into being because of the body, it is a wonder of wonders. Indeed, I am amazed at how this great wealth has made its home in this poverty.”

Jesus said, “No prophet is accepted in his own village; no physician heals those who know him.”

Jesus said, “Many times have you desired to hear these words which I am saying to you, and you have no one else to hear them from. There will be days when you will look for me and will not find me.”

Jesus said, “A grapevine has been planted outside of the father, but being unsound, it will be pulled up by its roots and destroyed.”

Jesus said, “Grapes are not harvested from thorns, nor are figs gathered from thistles, for they do not produce fruit. A good man brings forth good from his storehouse; an evil man brings forth evil things from his evil storehouse, which is in his heart, and says evil things. For out of the abundance of the heart he brings forth evil things.”

Jesus said, “Blessed is the man who has suffered and found life.”

Quotes from St. Thomas’ Gospel

Nasrani Cross (Eastern Christianity's Cross)

 

 

Jesus said, “Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you. For there is nothing hidden which will not become manifest.”

Jesus said, “I have cast fire upon the world, and see, I am guarding it until it blazes.”

Jesus said to them, “If you fast, you will give rise to sin for yourselves; and if you pray, you will be condemned; and if you give alms, you will do harm to your spirits. When you go into any land and walk about in the districts, if they receive you, eat what they will set before you, and heal the sick among them.  For what goes into your mouth will not defile you, but that which issues from your mouth – it is that which will defile you.”

Jesus said, “Men think, perhaps, that it is peace which I have come to cast upon the world. They do not know that it is dissension which I have come to cast upon the earth: fire, sword, and war. For there will be five in a house: three will be against two, and two against three, the father against the son, and the son against the father. And they will stand solitary.”

Jesus said to them, “When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female; and when you fashion eyes in the place of an eye, and a hand in place of a hand, and a foot in place of a foot, and a likeness in place of a likeness; then will you enter [the Kingdom].”

Some Verses from “The Gospel of St. Thomas” (via SpiritualPoetry’s Blog)

To date, many people revisit the Gospel of St. Thomas. It is often compared to the writing style of St. John’s Book of Revelations, with it’s imagery and metphors. Though I’ve found, when comparing it to those Gospels found in the Holy Bible, the messages and even the wording is quite similar.

It is known that the Gospel of St. Thomas consists of direct quotes from Jesus Christ. When taking a closer look at this Gospel, you will see a whole new perspective, that can be quite enlightening.

God Bless.

Gospel of St.Thomas

 

St.Thomas "The Doubter" wanted to touch the wounds of Jesus Christ, when He appeared to Him on the Day He Resurrected.

St. Thomas (also known as St.Thomas “The Doubter”) is the patron saint for Christianity in the Eastern World; which is practiced from a different point of view.  As a result there have been Christians in the Eastern Hemisphere, since the Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ, which is about 2,000 years, when Christ’s Disciples dispersed to spread the Word of God.  As a result there are direct convertees of St. Thomas, “the Doubter” within the Eastern World. 

The Gospel’s  writing style is often compared to the writing style of St. John, in the Book of Revelations.  It is by many scholars, believed to be the most accurate/closest direct quotes of the Living Son of God, Jesus Christ.  The Gospel solely consists of quotes, and nothing more.

Jesus said, “When you see one who was not born of woman,prostrate yourselves on your faces and worship him. That one is your Father.”

 
[ Jesus] said of “His Disciples”, “They are like children who have settled in a field which is not theirs. When the owners of the field come, they will say, ‘Let us have back our field.’ They (will) undress in their presence in order to let them have back their field and give it back to them. Therefore I say to you, if the owner of a house knows that the thief is coming, he will begin his vigil before he comes and will not let him into his house of his domain to carry away his goods. You, then, be on your guard against the world.Arm yourselves with great strength lest the robbers find a way to come to you, for the difficulty which you expect will (surely) materialize. Let there be among you a man of understanding. When the grain ripened, he came quickly with his sickle in his hand and reaped it. Whoever has ears to hear, let him hear.”
 
 
 
 

 

 

Jesus said, “I took my place in the midst of the world, and I appeared to them in the flesh. I found all of them intoxicated; I found none of them thirsty. And My soul became afflicted for the sons of men, because they are blind in their hearts and do not have sight; for empty they came into the world, and empty too they seek to leave the world. But for the moment they are intoxicated. When they shake off their wine, then they will repent.”
 
 
 
 
 

 

Jesus said, “Preach from your housetops that which you will hear in your ear {(and) in the other ear}. For no one lights a lamp and puts it under a bushel, nor does he put it in a hidden place, but rather he sets it on a lampstand so that everyone who enters and leaves will see its light.”

 

Jesus said, “When you disrobe without being ashamed and take up your garments and place them under your feet like little children and tread on them, then [will you see] the Son of the Living One, and you will not be afraid”

 

Jesus said, “Whoever blasphemes against the Father will be forgiven, and whoever blasphemes against the Son will be forgiven, but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven either on earth or in heaven.”

 

Jesus said, “Grapes are not harvested from thorns, nor are figs gathered from thistles, for they do not produce fruit. A good man brings forth good from his storehouse; an evil man brings forth evil things from his evil storehouse, which is in his heart, and says evil things. For out of the abundance of the heart he brings forth evil things.”
