From Our Editors

Discovered in 1945 among the Gnostic texts at Nag Hammadi, the Gospel of Thomas is widely regarded by scholars as containing many of the original sayings of Jesus. This definitive English translation includes the Coptic text and commentary by one of America's preeminent literary critics. "Tells us more about the historical Jesus than all of the Dead Sea Scrolls put together".--John Dominic Crossan, author of The Historical Jesus

Editorial Reviews

“A fresh, sparkling translation.It is true to the Coptic text and fully informed by the most recent critical scholarship on the earliest traditions of the teachings of Jesus.Brief notes of exceptional quality explain idiomatic features of the text, and Meyer’s excellent introduction makes this gospel come alive.” (Burton L. Mack, author of The Lost Gospel: The Book of Q and Christian Origins)
