Overview

Jesus' style was to avoid giving straightforward answers even though his disciples kept asking for explanations. His unique sayings are the beatitudes, those about turning the other cheek, and the injunction to love enemies. But "treat people in the way you want to be treated" is closer to Jesus' perspective. This book lists 114 "secret sayings" by Jesus preserved by his twin brother Judas (Jude) "Thomas" and found in 1945 near the Egyptian town of Nag Hammadi. Author Jerome rewrites the words into twenty-first century English.
