Gospel of Thomas free Ebook pdfGospel of Thomas or actually: The Gospel According to Thomas also known as Codex II was found in Egypt in 1945. The very interesting thing is that the book contains direct citations of Jesus Christ in 114 verses. The Gospel of Thomas was written in 340 in Coptic, but the foundations are earlier oral traditions. Here it is in the two most significant and widespread English translations as free pdf ebooks of the text that never made it to the official Christian Bible.

    I always knew that the Christ spoke to me in words strange to the bible.. This book confirms them. God bless you

    There is more out there that some just do not want us to know about. It is still an attempt to control the people. There is never a period in history that some collectives are always attempting to control what we say, see, do and have.

    An excellent point. I totally agree. I AM irritated by the fact that this gospel was not included in the Bible and to think that the content of the Bible was chosen by a few people who thought that current contents of the Bible was best for humanity. Outrageous!!

    its has been happening for a long time.those that are in charge of these scrolls and texts change meanings, sentences and directives found in the original text.that is the cause of all wars they have fought all in the name of christianity. worse of all is that we are not sure of what to believe, we are all treading on a path we are not familiar with.everybody goes to church nowadays to show off their new dress,shoes, and to look for prospective suitors without remembering to read their bible during the week.

    It is amazing how human beings have been controlled for so many years with half truths. My amazement was that the HAVE-NOTS are those who read God’s word daily. The Bible is fully controlled by higher powers who continually exert their authority over so many.

    It takes a lot of knowledge to understand who created the bible and what for what was the purpose of the bible…but to control the mass,invasion,domination to name a few of the European secrets

    Luke in his introduction tell us that “Many” have written about the Gospel of Jesus (Luke 1:1 KJV Forasmuch as many have taken in hand to set forth in order a declaration of those things which are most surely believed among us, Also, John at the end of his Gospel narratives says, if all what Jesus did and say we’re to be written, all the World will not contain the Books containing in his words and actions! John 21:25 KJV
    [25] And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.

    Yet if all the sayings of Jesus and actions is put into a book after removing repetition and meaningless additions, what you will have will not be more than what a regular Newspaper contain. There are loads that the Church Fathers are keeping away from us all.

    Remember all who visit here, Jesus had no tangible wealth. Only his word and how he lived and died is priceless. The church is a business. Scripture is written by man. You don’t need a businessman telling you how to think, how to act. The Lords word is written within us all. Before saying or doing, you can feel within you if its right or wrong. Those are the words that can never be altered. That is exactly how Jesus would want you to live.

    Each day we must help our brethren for whom we are responsible.

    Recognize with gladness that we are neither lost, nor strangers to God, but one of His good creatures, and in our Temple we shall meet people from many nations and religions.

    I want very much to open my heart to help in any manner I can. Unfortunately, we are not ready yet to open our home to a complete stranger. I feel we could offer food money I know most street beggers are most likely to spend any money I might give on booze or drugs. There is that feeling of compassion however, it is greatly attenuated by their own lack of wanting to get out of the rut their in. Nevertheless, I will try to be generous and understamding and can only hope that those in need of brotherly love and financial generosity ask for help from our father in heaven or ask of help from Jesus.
    Amen Amen Amen

    I was greatly inspired and moved to search the web after watching the movie, STIGMATA. Though I have heard and read about how religious leaders (in Christendom) fight teeth and nails to hide the truth and all the scrolls of the Bible (both old and new testaments); reason for which they believed it I’ll help them have relevance and ABSOLUTE power to control the CHURCH for selfish ends. Embanking to find more about my cherished Saviour, Jesus Christ.

    Don’t be deceived. This “gospel” is a forgery. It wasn’t written by Jesus’s disciple Thomas. It’s by a faker who thought it would be interesting to see his writing go somewhere.

    Remember that the Word of God always always confirms itself, and this one has nothing but contradictions. They knew what they were doing when they decided to discard this writing.

    Don’t be deceived.

    I’m curious? Where does your confidence in this statement come from? It is deception? Can you show the proof? Please know my question comes not out of judgement but only love and seeking. (There’s irony in that)

    I’ve recently been curious about this lost book. Can any of the translations be the true word, as they’re translations of men, sinners. I know God lives within me and I trust his guidance and will in my life.

    It is well with my soul.

    Blessings to you,

    The Bible is nothing but contridiction. The typical religious fanatic will ignore all contridictions and only repeat the things that sound good to them.

    Compassion is ‘suffering with’ – what beggars often seek is not food and money (a means to an end) but to be recognised as a human being experiencing life’s ups and downs just as you are. Don’t assume all beggars drink or do drugs. That they no longer see value in a steady job or a nice home and car is not to be dismissed, but explored. Jesus did not earn a living, but relied on the compassion of those around him for food and shelter. No doubt a beggar could teach you a thing or two about life, instead of valuing financial security, and perhaps even help you get out of the rut you may be in – to be in the world but not of the world…

    Was Apostle Thomas alive in 340 AD to have written this book?

    It is very important that this book is very good to know more about secret of all hidden points of God and in human way of deceiving whole world , if he was alive in 340 AD therefore to me there most be a lots of things hidden from God words but those who should be blamed are those who translating the Bible, therefore it came out that it became the business without an end. I would like to go further more to comforting our aim , indeed if not the church and those who concerned for Bibles should be responsible for deceiving the whole world.

    If it,s true , 340 AD Thomas written this book, there are more hidden from God words. It became the business without an end.

    Interesting comments,, but if you not believe the words written in spirit,, then you cannot believe god exists and if you believe the devil exist,, and god explain his existence,, then how can you not believe Thomas wrote this book as well,,

    Greetings! I like your reminder regarding Luke 21:25. It is important that we remember the complexity of the gospels and the hidden words of Jesus Christ as he taught the world! Imagine if we had access to majority of the missing books of the Bible beyond the Septuagint.

    Didn’t Jesus disciple, Thomas went to India for his mission to spread gosepl…

    I think in those days as gospel was wide spreading there was also a different other gospel in the name of disciples published to gain popularity or for the sake of money…

    Because their was a lot of conversions going on and those time it was revolution in religions… It might have given arrise for various unreliable stories associated with Jesus which is a conspiracy gospel.
    We can see paul clearly waning the early church about such gospels.
    Galatians 1:8,9
    8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

    9 As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

    Cause that could be the time all sorts of imaginary things are associated to the gospels..
    As we can see at that time period history saw origin of religions based on those conspiracy gosepls.

    Everything in the 3rd dimension has contrast, the lower houses corruption (bowels), the higher houses the brain, head, and vital organs. One cannot know unless it forwards to the upper room, for the lower room will pass it out the draw as unwanted waste. Be ye wise as an owl and approach understanding as gentle as a dove. Existence is one.

    Is it likely that God, who wishes to make Himself known and chose the scripture as His means for doing so through His chosen disciples, would leave out things we needed to know? Would you be required to be possessors of arcane knowledge? Do you imagine that conspiracies, businesses and a desire for control would stop God and that we have to wait 1,945 years for this ludicrous ‘gospel’ to appear and set us right? The Church Fathers rejected this ‘gospel’ and you only have to read it to see why.
