The Gospel According to Thomas, commonly shortened to the Gospel of Thomas, is a well preserved early Christian, non-canonical sayings-gospel which many scholars believe provides insight into the Christian Oral Tradition. It was discovered near Nag Hammadi, Egypt, in December 1945, in one of a group of books known as the Nag Hammadi library.

Hs translations of  the Nag Hammadi library and so we see some of the great early Christian writings that weren't in the canonical Bible. Including The Gospel of Thomas. This was the book that made me realize that the early 'Christian church' was gnostic and they were basically spiritual 'self-help groups' about personal inner growth. Nothing like the hierarchical Catholic church. One caveat: the translation of 'God's imperial rule' instead of 'Kingdom of God' sucks.
