Vision or delusion.
Updated: Feb 10
After reading the Syrian to English version of According to Thomas, I was totally enthralled.
Although the first 8 pages were simple, the rest took a little while to understand. I prayed to understand the rest of the gospel. I had a vision of Jesus talking to Thomas and within 5 minutes I read the gospel from beginning to end with a renewed understanding.
Of course the first thing I did was to contact a bishop, who preferred to see naked pictures of myself than explore this gospel. I sent him a copy of the gospel. After reading it, he said that he needed to speak to his superiors. He came back to say his superiors thought I should not publish it and to leave it be. My friends agreed with me that i should publish this because they felt it too important to deny. We all agreed that this made much more sense than the Bible and gave hope for those looking for guidance.
