Widely regarded a containing many of the original sayings of Jesus, The Gospel of Thomas was discovered in 1945 among the gnostic texts at Nag Hammadi. Reportedly dictated by Jesus to his brother, Judas Thomas the Twin, founder of the churches of the East, Thomas reveals a Jesus whose teachings echo the wisdom of the sophists, Diogenes, Plato, and Socrates. "If you turn to the The Gospel of Thomas," says Meyer, "you encounter a Jesus who is unsponsored and free."
