The Gospel of Thomas: Where Science Meets Spirituality

Overview

The Gospel of Thomas contains only 114 of Jesus' sayings, but its powerful message has rocked conventional understanding of who Jesus was and what he taught. In Thomas, Jesus is not a savior, a messiah or a Christ. He does not die for anyone's sins, and resurrection is not even mentioned. He is not considered the only-begotten Son of God, God incarnate or even a master over his followers. If he's not portrayed in any of the roles that are customarily assigned to him, what part ...

Overview

The Gospel of Thomas contains only 114 of Jesus' sayings, but its powerful message has rocked conventional understanding of who Jesus was and what he taught. In Thomas, Jesus is not a savior, a messiah or a Christ. He does not die for anyone's sins, and resurrection is not even mentioned. He is not considered the only-begotten Son of God, God incarnate or even a master over his followers. If he's not portrayed in any of the roles that are customarily assigned to him, what part does he play?
In the Gospel of Thomas, Jesus is a human who has had his spiritual eyes opened through gnosis, a direct, personal experience of the Divine. His teachings are based on an understanding of the universe that quantum research is currently confirming. When we listen, his words can correct the misperceptions that fill our world with fear. We all have a choice to make. We can take a "quantum" approach to Jesus' teachings or cling to an outdated interpretation of his words that cannot be reconciled with scientific research.
We've discovered that the synergy of science and spirituality has the power to transform your life. We invite you to join us in exploring Jesus' parables and sayings from a quantum perspective. But like Jesus, it is not our intention to give you more words to follow, but to offer a reason for you to want to experience the Divine for yourself.

Meet the Author

Lee and Steven Hager are the authors of The Beginning of Fearlessness: Quantum Prodigal Son, The Gospel of Thomas: Where Science Meets Spirituality and Religious or Spiritual: How the Difference Can Affect Your Happiness.
Since childhood, Lee and Steven were determined to know Ultimate Reality. They spent over 25 years as dedicated Christian teachers, but never felt directly connected to Source. Their many questions eventually led to excommunication and a renewed determination to find God. They persisted in their search for several years, but kept finding the same disappointing answers. Frustrated by severe chronic illnesses, family and financial problems, and their seeming failure to find God, they made a suicide pact. Before carrying it out, they prayed one last time, but this prayer, and the result, was very different than anything they had experienced before.
Instead of asking for what they wanted, they laid aside all their personal preferences and preconceived ideas. For the first time, they were willing to accept any message they received as long as it resulted in a connection with Source. The answer they received came from a combination of very unlikely sources: quantum physics and the gnostic gospels. They suddenly realized that science and spirituality create a powerful synergy that can transform our lives and wake us to the realization that we can never be disconnected from Source.
