The Secret Teachings Of Jesus (The Gospel Of Thomas)
Incipit:

These are the hidden sayings that the Living Jesus spoke and that Didymus Judas Thomas wrote down.

&To ignore factual reality by believing it to be otherwise does not mean that a person is removed from that reality. It only means that they suffer it ignorantly.&

The Secret Teachings Of Jesus (The Gospel Of Thomas)
Jesus said:

"People think, perhaps, that I have come to throw peace upon the world. They don't know that I have come to throw Disagreement upon the World, and Fire, and Sword, and Struggle."

Jesus said:

"I have thrown Fire on the world. Look! I watch It until It blazes."

Jesus said:

"Whoever is near Me is near The Fire. Whoever is far from Me is far from The Kingdom."

The Secret Teachings Of Jesus (The Gospel Of Thomas)
Jesus Said:

"The Pharisees and the Scribes have taken the Keys to Knowledge and have hidden Them. They did not go in, and They did not permit Those desiring to go in to enter."

Jesus Said:

"Woe to the Pharisees. Like a Dog dozing in a food trough for Cattle, They neither eat nor do They let the Cattle eat."

Jesus Said:

"For nobody lights a lamp and puts it underneath a bushel basket or in a hidden place. Rather, it is placed on a lamp stand so that All who go in and out may see the Light."

Jesus Said:

"What You hear in Your ears, preach from Your Housetops."

Jesus Said:

"Love Your brother as Your own Soul. Protect Him as You protect the pupil of Your own eye."

Jesus Said:

"You see the splinter that is in Your Brother's eye, but You do not see the log that is in Your own eye. Remove the log from Your own eye, and then You can clearly see to remove the splinter from Your Brother's eye."

Jesus Said:

"If a Blind Person leads another Blind Person , both of Them will fall into a ditch."

Jesus Said:

"One who knows everything else but who does not know Himself knows nothing."

The Secret Teachings Of Jesus (The Gospel Of Thomas)
Salome asked him:

"Who are You, Man? As though coming from Someone, You have come onto My couch and eaten from My table."

Jesus replied:

"I am He who comes into being from Him who is the same. Some of the things of My Father have been given to Me."

Salome said:

"I am Your Disciple."

Jesus Said:

"Blessed are Those who have been persecuted within Themselves. They have really come to know The Father."

A Good Man brings good things out of His storehouse, but a bad Man brings bad things from His storehouse (which is in His Heart). And He says bad things. For out of the surplus in His Heart He brings out bad things.

Jesus said:

"Blessed is a Lion that a Man eats, because that Lion will become Human. Cursed is a Man that a Lion eats, because that Lion will become Human."

When You ate Dead Things, You made Them alive. When You arrive into Light, what will You do?

When You were One, You became Two. When You become Two, what will You do?

For what goes into Your mouth will not defile You, but what comes out of Your mouth can defile You.

Jesus Said:

"Whoever blasphemes against The Father will be forgiven. Whoever blasphemes against The Son will be forgiven. But whoever blasphemes against The Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, neither on Earth nor in Heaven."

His Disciples asked Him:

"Who are You to say these things to Us?"

Jesus replied:

"Don't You recognize who I am from what I say to You? You have become like the Jews who like The Tree but loathe It's Fruit, or They like The Fruit but loathe The Tree."

They said to Him:

"Tell us who You are so that We can believe in You."

He replied:

"You analyze the appearance of the Sky and the Earth, but You don't recognize what is right in front of You, and You don't know the nature of the present time."

Jesus said:

"Recognize what is right in front of You, and that which is hidden from You will be revealed to You. Nothing hidden will fail to be displayed."

They said to him:

"Twenty-four Prophets spoke to Israel, and They all spoke of You."

He responded to Them:

"You have deserted The Living One who is with You, and You spoke about The Dead."

Jesus said:

"Where there are three Gods they are Gods. Where there are two or one, I am with Him."

Jesus Said:

"Two will lie down on one bed, One will die and The Other will live."

Jesus said:

"This Sky will cease to be. And the Sky above It will cease to be."

Jesus said:

"The Earth and the Sky will roll up right in front of You. Anyone living from The Living will not die."

They saw a Samaritan going into Judea carrying a lamb.

He asked his disciples:

"What do you think he will do with that lamb?"

They replied:

"He'll kill it and eat it."

He said to them:

"As long as it remains alive he will not eat it; only if He kills it and it becomes a corpse."

They said:

"Otherwise He won't be able to do so."

He said to them:

"You too must seek a place for rest, or You may become a corpse and be eaten."

Jesus Said:

"Foxes have holes and Birds have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay down His head and rest."

Jesus Said:

"Come to Me. My yoke is easy. My mastery is gentle, and You will find rest for Yourselves."

If You do not Fast from the World You will not find The Kingdom.

If You do not keep the Sabbath as a Sabbath You will never see the Father.

They said to Jesus:

"Come, lets pray; lets fast."

Jesus responded:

"What sin have I commited? How have I been overcome? Rather, when the Groom leaves The Bridal Suite, then They should fast and pray."

His disciples questioned Him:

"Should We fast? In what way should We pray? Should We give to charity? From which foods should We abstain?"

Jesus responded:

"Do not lie. If there is something that You hate, do not do it, for everything is revealed beneath Heaven. Nothing hidden will fail to be displayed. Nothing covered will remain undisclosed."

Jesus said to them:

"If You fast You will bring sin to Yourselves, and if You pray You will be condemned, and if You give to charity You will damage Your spirits."

Blessed are those who are hungry in order to fill the bellies of the needy.

Jesus Said:

"Blessed are The Poor, for Yours is the Kingdom of Heaven."

They showed Jesus a gold coin and said:

"Caesar's Agents demand that we pay His taxes."

He replied:

"Give to Caesar what is Caesar's. Give to God what is God's. And give Me what is Mine."

You should be as clever as Snakes and as Innocent as Doves.

Do not let Your left hand know what Your right hand is doing.

Jesus Said:

"Be one of Those who pass by."

His disciples asked Him:

"Is circumcision useful or not?"

He replied:

"If it were useful, then They would be born already circumcised. On the other hand, true circumcision in the Spirit is entirely beneficial."

Jesus Said:

"Woe to the Flesh dependent on the Soul; Woe to the Soul dependent on the Flesh."

Jesus Said:

"Whoever has come to know the World has found The Body. Whoever has found that Body, the World is not worthy of Him."

Jesus Said:

"Wretched is a Body depending on a Body, and wretched is a Soul depending on These Two."

Jesus Said:

"Once there was a rich Man who had lots of money, and He said, "I will invest My money so that I can sow, reap, plant, and fill up My silos with crops so that I won't lack anything." So He thought, but that night He died. He who has ears, let Him ear."

Jesus Said:

"Whoever possesses some will be given more. Whoever posesses virtually nothing will have what little He does possess taken away."


"Why wash the outside of The Cup? Don't You know that The One who made The Inside also made The Outside?"

Jesus Said:

"Why did You go into the desert? Did You expect to see Reeds shaken by the Wind? To see People clothed in elegant garments like your Kings and Courtiers? They wear elegant garments and cannot know the Truth."

Jesus Said:

"Do not worry from morning to evening or evening to morning about what You are going to wear."

Jesus said:

"A man entertained guests. When dinner was ready he sent a servant to invite his guests. The servant went to the first one and said, "My master invites you," but he replied, "I have to collect money from some merchants, and they are due to arrive this evening. Therefore I have to do business with them, and I must be excused from the dinner." The servant went to another and said, "My master invites you," but he said, "I have just bought a house, and I have to spend a day there, so I cannot come. I must be excused." He went to the next and said, "My master invites you." This one replied, "My friend is about to be married, and I must organize the dinner. I can't come. I must be excused." Again he went and said to another, "My master invites you." He replied, "I have just bought a village, and I have to go collect the rent. I can't come and must be excused." The servant reported back to his master, "Those whom you invited to the dinner are unable to come." The master said, "Go to the roads outside and invite anybody you can find to the dinner."

Jesus said:

"One person cannot ride two horses at once, nor stretch two bows, nor can a servant serve two masters, as He will respect one and despise the other."

The Secret Teachings Of Jesus (The Gospel Of Thomas)
Jesus Said:

"Look, there was a man who came out to sow seed. He filled His hand with seed and threw it about. Some fell onto the road, and birds ate it. Some fell onto rocks and could not root and produced no grain. Some fell into patches of thorny weeds that kept it from growing, and grubs ate it. Some fell upon good soil and grew and produced good grain. It was 60 units per measure and 120 units per measure."

Jesus said:

"The harvest is great, but there are only a few Workers. Ask the Master to send more Workers for the harvest."

He said:

"Master, there are many around the drinking barrel, but there is nobody in the well."

Jesus Said:

"I stood in the midst of the World. I came to Them in the flesh [sarx]. I found all of Them drunk. I found not One of Them to be thirsty. My soul was saddended by The Sons of Men for They are mentally blind. They do not see that They have come into the world empty and They will go out of the world empty. But now They are drunk. When They sober up They will repent."

No one drinks vintage wine and immediately wants to drink fresh wine.

Fresh wine is not put into old wineskins because they might burst. Vintage wine is not put into new wineskins because it might be spoiled.

A patch of old cloth is not sewn onto a new garment because it would tear.

When You understand Yourselves You will be understood. And You will realize that You are the Sons of the living Father. If You do not know yourselves, then You exist in poverty and You are that poverty.

Jesus Said:

"If flesh [sarx] came into being because of Spirit, it is wonderful. If Spirit came into being because of the body, it is exceedingly wonderful. I am amazed that this great wealth has appeared in this poverty."

The Secret Teachings Of Jesus (The Gospel Of Thomas)
Jesus asked His Disciples:

"Make a comparison; what am I like?"

Simon Peter replied:

"You are like a righteous Messenger."

Matthew replied:

"You are like an intelligent lover of wisdom."

Thomas replied:

"Teacher, I cannot possibly say what You are like."

Jesus said to Thomas:

"I am not Your teacher; You have drunk from and become intoxicated from the bubbling water that I poured out."

Jesus took Thomas and they withdrew. Jesus said three things to Him.

When Thomas returned to the other Disciples, They asked Him:

"What did Jesus tell you?"

Thomas replied:

"If I tell you even one of the sayings that He told Me, You would pick up Stones and throw Them at Me, and Fire would come out of Those Stones and burn You up."

Jesus said:

"I tell My Mysteries to People worthy of My Mysteries."

Jesus said:

"He who drinks from My Mouth will become like I am, and I will become He. And the Hidden Things will be revealed to Him."

Jesus said:

"I will give You that which eyes have not seen, ears have not heard, hands did not touch, and minds have not concieved."

If You become My Disciples and listen to Me, these stones will serve You.

Mary asked Jesus:

"Who are your disciples like?"

He replied:

"They are like little Children in a field that does not belong to Them. When the field's Owners come They will say: "Give Our field back." They will strip naked in the Owners' presence and give it back, returning Their field to Them."

Jesus replied:

"When You strip naked without shame and trample Your clothing underfoot just as little Children do, then You will look at The Son of The Living One without being afraid."

Jesus Said:

"The Messengers are coming to You with the Prophets, and They will give You what is properly Yours. You then should give Them what You have. Say to Yourselves: "When will They come and take what is Theirs?"
