Introduction

After a long period of study by myself and others it has been discovered that the entire Gospel of Thomas can be imbedded into certain strings of verses from other Gospels and

Epistles, using the Gospel of Matthew as the main guide.
This provides Thomas with a timeline it does not have by itself.

I am one of the people who love the Gospel of Thomas of and by itself. It is my desire to discover by combining these texts, rather than create from or of them.

The following is the combination of the Gospel of Thomas, into the Gospel of Matthew, with insertions from the Gospel of Mary, the Epistle of James, Peter, and the Gospels of

Luke, Phillip, John and Mark. Insertions occur in different ways. This has been done with care as not to distort from the intended obvious meanings, and central themes of the

combinations of strings, all from Apostles…

“These are the words that Jesus said…”

Jesus, His Disciples, and John The Baptist

1.

(Thomas 4.) “A person old in days will not hesitate to ask a child of seven days about the Place of Life, and he will live ! For many who are first will become last, and they

will become one and the same.”

(Matthew 11-1. And in those days cometh John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea, saying,

(Matthew 11-2. Repent ye; for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

(Matthew 11-3. For this is he that was spoken of through Isaiah the prophet, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make ye ready the way of the Lord,

make his paths straight.

(Matthew 11-4. Now John himself had his raiment of camel’s hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his food was locusts and wild honey.

(Matthew 11-5. Then went out unto him Jerusalem, and all Judaea, and all the region round about the Jordan;

(Matthew 11-6. and they were baptized of him in the river Jordan, confessing their sins.

(Thomas 46.) “Among those born of women, from Adam until John the Baptist, there is none greater than John the Baptist that his eyes should not be lowered before him.

Yet I have said, that if one of You becomes like a child he will know the Kingdom and be higher than John.”

2.

(Mathew 3:11. Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not arisen a greater than John the Baptist: yet he that is but little in the kingdom

of heaven is greater than he.

(Thomas 85.) “Adam came into being from a great power and a great wealth, and he did not become worthy of You. For had he been worthy of You, he would

not have experienced death.”

(Phillip) The soul of Adam came into being by means of a breath (pneuma), which is a synonym for spirit (Pneuma). The spirit given him is his mother.

His soul was replaced by a spirit. When he was united to the spirit, he spoke words incomprehensible to the powers. They envied him because he was seperated from the

spiritual union. This seperation afforded them the opportunity to fashion for themselves the symbolic bridal chamber so that men would be defiled.

(Thomas 75) Jesus said : “Many stand outside at the door, but it is the solitaries who will enter the bridal chamber.

(Matthew 3:12. And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and men of violence take it by force.

(Matthew 3:13. For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John.

3.

(Matthew 3-7. But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to his baptism, he said unto them, Ye offspring of vipers, who warned you to flee from the

wrath to come?

(Thomas 40.w the Spirit of God descending as a dove, and coming upon him;

(Matthew 3-17. and lo, a voice out of the heavens, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

(Mark 10-35. And James and John, the sons of Zebedee, come unto him, saying, Master, we would that thou shouldest do for us whatsoever we shall desire.

(Mark 10-36. And he said unto them, What would ye that I should do for you?

(Mark 10- 37. They said unto him, Grant unto us that we may sit, one on thy right hand, and the other on thy left hand, in thy glory.

(Mark 10- 38. But Jesus said unto them, Ye know not what ye ask: can ye drink of the cup that I drink of? and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?

(Mark 10- 39. And they said unto him, We can. And Jesus said unto them, Ye shall indeed drink of the cup that I drink of; and with the baptism that I am baptized

withal shall ye be baptized:

(Mark 10- 40. But to sit on my right hand and on my left hand is not mine to give; but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared.

4.

(Matthew 14-1. At that season Herod the tetrarch heard the report concerning Jesus,

(Matthew 14-2. and said unto his servants, This is John the Baptist; he is risen from the dead; and therefore do these powers work in him.

(Matthew 14-3. For Herod had laid hold on John, and bound him, and put him in prison for the sake of Herodias, his brother Philip’s wife.

(Matthew 14-4. For John said unto him, It is not lawful for thee to have her.

(Matthew 14-5. And when he would have put him to death, he feared the multitude, because they counted him as a prophet.

(Matthew 14-6. But when Herod’s birthday came, the daughter of Herodias danced in the midst, and pleased Herod.

(Matthew 14-7. Whereupon he promised with an oath to give her whatsoever she should ask.

(Matthew 14-8. And she, being put forward by her mother, saith, Give me here on a platter the head of John the Baptist.

(Matthew 14-9. And the king was grieved; but for the sake of his oaths, and of them that sat at meat with him, he commanded it to be given;

(Matthew 14-10. and he sent and beheaded John in the prison.

(Matthew 14-11. And his head was brought on a platter, and given to the damsel: and she brought it to her mother.

(Matthew 14-12. And his disciples came, and took up the corpse, and buried him; and they went and told Jesus.
Jesus’ Speeches and Parables To The Multitudes

5.

(Matthew 14-13. Now when Jesus heard it, he withdrew from thence in a boat, to a desert place apart: and when the multitudes heard thereof, they followed him on foot from the cities.

(Matthew 14-14. And he came forth, and saw a great multitude, and he had compassion on them, and healed their sick.

(Thomas 78) Jesus said : “Why did You go out into the desert ? To see a reed shaken by the wind ? To see a man clothed in fine garments ?

Your kings and Your great men are the ones clothed in fine garments, and they are not able to know the truth.”

(Phillip) The powers do not see those who are clothed in the perfect light, and consequently are not able to detain them. One will clothe himself sacrementally in the union.

(Thomas 36) Jesus said : “Do not be concerned from morning until evening and from evening until morning about what You will put on.”

(Matthew 13- 34. All these things spake Jesus in parables unto the multitudes; and without a parable spake he nothing unto them:

(Matthew 13- 35. that it might be fulfilled which was spoken through the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things hidden from the foundation of the world.

(Matthew 14-15. And when evening was come, the disciples came to him, saying, The place is desert, and the time is already past; send the multitudes away, that they may go

into the villages, and buy themselves food.

(Matthew 14-16. But Jesus said unto them, They have no need to go away; give ye them to eat.

(Matthew 14-17. And they say unto him, We have here but five loaves, and two fishes.

(Matthew 14-18. And he said, Bring them hither to me.

(Matthew 14-19. And he commanded the multitudes to sit down on the grass; and he took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed,

and brake and gave the loaves to the disciples, and the disciples to the multitudes.

(Matthew 14-20. And they all ate, and were filled: and they took up that which remained over of the broken pieces, twelve baskets full.

(Matthew 14-21. And they that did eat were about five thousand men, besides women and children.

(Matthew 5:2. and he opened his mouth and taught them, saying,

(Peter 5:8.) Be sober, be watchful: your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour,

(Thomas 7.) Fortunate is the lion which the man eats so that the lion becomes a man; and cursed is the man whom the lion eats so that the man becomes a
lion.”

(Mathew 5:10.) Blessed are they that have been persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

(Thomas 79.) Fortunate are those who have heard the Word of the Father and kept it.

6.

(Luke12:12.) for the Holy Spirit shall teach you in that very hour what ye ought to say.

(Thomas 72) A man said to Him : “Tell my brothers to divide my father’s possessions with me.” He said to him : “Man, who has made Me a divider ?”

He turned to His disciples and said to them : “I am not a divider, am I ?”

(Luke 12-14. But he said unto him, Man, who made me a judge or a divider over you?

(Luke 12- 15. And he said unto them, Take heed, and keep yourselves from all covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in abundance

of the things which he possesseth.

(Luke 12- 35.) Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning;

(Luke 12- 36.) And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh,

they may open unto him immediately.

(Thomas103.) “Fortunate is the man who knows where the robbers are going to enter, so that he may get up, gather his {house}, and girds his loins before they enter.”

(Luke 12- 37.) Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you,

that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them.

(Luke 12- 38.) And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants.

(Luke 12- 39. ) And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched,

and not have suffered his house to be broken through.

(Thomas35.) “It is not possible for anyone to enter the house of a strong man and take him by force unless he binds his hands ; then one can ransack his house.”

(Luke 12- 40.) Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not.

7.
(Luke 10- 25. And behold, a certain lawyer stood up and made trial of him, saying, Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?

(Luke 10- 30. And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his

raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead.

(Luke 10- 31. And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.

(Luke 10- 32. And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side.

(Luke 10- 33. But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him,

(Luke 10- 34. And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.

(Luke 10- 35. And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him;

and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee.

(Luke 10- 36. Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves?

(Luke 10- 37. And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.

(Thomas 69.) Fortunate are those who are persecuted in their hearts. It is they who have truly come to know the Father.

Fortunate are those who are hungry, for they will satisfy their bellies.”

(Mathew 5:11.) Blessed are ye when men shall reproach you, and persecute you, and say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.

8.

(Thomas19.) Fortunate is he who was before he became. If You become My disciples and listen to My words, these stones will serve You. For there are five
trees for You in Paradise which remain unshaken summer and winter and
their leaves do not fall. He who knows them will not taste death.”

(Matthew 5:3. Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

(Thomas 54.) Fortunate are the poor, for Yours is the Kingdom of Heaven.”

Matthew 5:4. Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

(Mathew 5:5. Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

(Thomas 49.) Fortunate are You, the alone and the elect, for You will find the

Kingdom. Because You came from it, You will also return to it again.”

(Matthew 5:6. Blessed are they that hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

(Matthew 5:7. Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

(Thomas 58.) Fortunate is the man who has suffered ; he found Life.”

(Mathew 5:8. Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

(Thomas 68.) Fortunate are You when You are hated and persecuted. Where You were persecuted they will find no place.”

(Matthew 5:9.) Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called sons of God.

 

9.

(Mattthew 19-20. The young man saith unto him, All these things have I observed: what lack I yet?

(Thomas 63) Jesus said : “There was a rich man who had a lot of money. He said : ‘I shall put all my wealth to use so that I may sow, reap, plant,

and fill my barn with harvest, with the result that I shall lack nothing.’ Such were the thoughts of his heart, but during that night he died.

He who has ears to hear, let him hear !”

(Mattthew 19- 21. Jesus said unto him, If thou wouldest be perfect, go, sell that which thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have

treasure in heaven: and come, follow me.

(Mattthew 19-22. But when the young man heard the saying, he went away sorrowful; for he was one that had great possessions.

(Mattthew 19- 23. And Jesus said unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, It is hard for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of heaven.

(Mattthew 19- 24. And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through a needle’s eye, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

 

10.

(Thomas 8.) Then He said : “A man is like a wise fisherman who casts his net into the sea and drew it up from the sea full of small fish.

Among them he found a fine large fish. The wise fisherman threw all the small fish back into the sea and chose the large fish without hesitation.

He who has ears to hear, let him hear.”

(Matthew 13-47. Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind:

(Matthew 13-48. which, when it was filled, they drew up on the beach; and they sat down, and gathered the good into vessels,

but the bad they cast away.

(Matthew 13-49. So shall it be in the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the righteous,

(Matthew 13- 50. and shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be the weeping and the gnashing of teeth.
