      Just to insure that I don't miss what I'm looking for, I'm asking for
      extra eyes for a search of Gospel texts (including Thomas) for Jesus'
      teaching on forgiveness. Where does it occur?

      With thanks in advance,

        John 4 is also a study in the nature of forgiveness, don't you think? The Samaritan woman (who of course could be a symbol for history,) but taking the story line at face value, she's had 5 husbands..."and the one you're living with now is not your own"! But, she is never asked to "go back to #1," or to do anything about it, she is simply given the chance to do something good--to live to a better future, and sometimes that's all we can do with our sinfulness--just try to live better with the messes we've made. Just a thought...not too scholarly, but where I am, this AM.
