THE DIVINE MYSTERIES OF THOMAS

We talk about secret teachings and hidden wisdom all the time. Allegories and mysteries seem to be at the heart of mystic Christianity. Anyone who has ever read a gnostic text knows exactly how they play up the mystery of the journey within. But… I’d like to demystify inner transformation and invite you to study the opening lines of the Gospel of Thomas with me. Click the link for more.

Buried Treasure Of The Logion

Before I kick off another vlog on how to seek hidden wisdom I feel it’s important to look at the hidden-ness of Thomas. A lot has been written on the secrets of the logion that I feel scares people away from their treasure.

DID YESHUA TEACH A SECRET DOCTRINE

“To you it has been granted to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God, but to the rest it is in parables, so that seeing they may not see and hearing they may not understand.” -Luke 8:10 There were obviously hidden threads in the Gospels but I doubt they were nearly as secretive as […]

All 6’s & 7’s: Transforming Water Into Wine

“On the third day there was a wedding in Cana, in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there.” -John 2:1 Jewish mysticism has a practice called gematria- interpreting the meaning of scriptures based on numerical values.
