-Publisher

A fresh, authoritative English translation, with an informative introduction, fascinating explanatory notes, and the Coptic text, with interpretation by Harold Bloom, our pre-eminent literary critic.
-Publisher

Jesus said, "Know what is in front of your face, and what is hidden from you will be disclosed to you. For there is nothing hidden that will not be revealed." Many scholars of the historical Jesus believe the Gospel of Thomas contains original sayings of Jesus that circulated among his followers before the composition of the New Testament Gospels. This fresh revision of Marvin Meyer's masterful translation is clearly the most complete, up-to- date, accurate, and literary version of the Gospel of Thomas. Meyer has refined the translation in light of the latest research and has updated the Notes and Bibliography. Readers of Thomas will be enthralled by the Jesus revealed here through his Zen master-like sayings. What emerges is not the canonical Jesus but, as Harold Bloom puts it in his skillful interpretation, a gospel that "spares us the crucifixion, makes the resurrection unnecessary, and does not present us with a God named Jesus. . . . If you turn to the Gospel of Thomas, you encounter a Jesus who is unsponsored and free."
