Jesus and the Gospel of Thomas
- To all,
While the current fury goes on regarding GTh. a helpful thing for folks to
consider regarding Jesus are the sayings parallels between Q and GTh. Such
as the "Q Thomas Reader" (out by Polebridge) on page159 has the list of 40
parallels (some only rough and incomplete) between the two wisdom gospels.
I would be interested in thoughts by those who have spent time on detailed
analysis of these parallels. In particular (although some on this list
don't seem to think positively about this) I'd be interested in comments
about the redactional layers and comparisons between how the redactions of Q
are understood in relation to the redactions in GTh.
