    I enjoy this treatment & exposition of the 'Gospel Accordin

    I enjoy this treatment & exposition of the 'Gospel According to Thomas' by Lachlen French, because it reveals the entire background of the time period and probable circumstances of the gospel's creation; and which is so truly informative in this way, that it makes that very time period LIVE in the imagination. It's amazing that way.

    By showing the truths & tenets, the practices and the worshipful manner in daily living of the Essene brotherhood, to which Jesus obviously belonged, we can understand about JESUS (Latin) / YESHUA (Hebrew) / IESOUS (Greek) much more clearly than ever before. I feel an actual connection in an inner way, to Yeshua, the Christ/teacher, because of this book. It is deeply satisfying for that reason.

    And we now get to understand that the ancient scriptures, including Thomas and the Bible both, taught and were written in the code language of the ancient writers, to protect its very sanctity. Now, understanding that all those scriptures for millennia were written that way, in code, it reveals so many new meanings than we ever knew before, or got to sink our teeth into; it's enlightening.

    And because Lachlen French re-translated and reordered a very disheveled ancient document that seemed out of order in its original format, and into an intuitive sequence and structure, it reads like NEVER before. Having seen others authors' transliteration from the original, it is known that it was difficult because of its original structure, or.. non-structure may be better. This is the deepest, richest most unique presentation of Thomas, I think anywhere anytime. It can't be said enough - NO ONE has provided this complete a document - so poetic, informational, elevated and inspiring in such a very fulsome presentation of Thomas and the ancient principles of Christ, ever... it can be said, nothing is close. It was written literally for us, for our modern minds, to comprehend how we would naturally understand. Now it's like being taught there, here, in that very presence of Christ speaking to us. It feels quite unique and richly different in that way. You will be rapt in the assimilating of it.
