Nag Hammadi Gnostic Library Gospel of Thomas
In 1970 the codices the Egyptian government released the 4th century codices which had been been found in an earthen jar in a cave near the town of Nag Hammadi. These were sacred texts concerning Neo Platonism and Gnosticism, and incorporated many apocrypha about the Master Jesus. The Gospel of Thomas in particular has many quotes attributed to Jesus. His parables are powerful and teachings require thought. "O lord, there are many around the drinking trough but there is nothing in the cistern"
