9780060655884: The Unknown Saying of Jesus

Hundreds of sayings were attributed to the sage from Nazareth by ancient admirers. More than fifteen hundred versions of five hundred quotations are attributed to Jesus in the New Testament, the Gospel of Thomas, and other Gospels found at Nag Hammadi. Marvin Meyer has combed additional Jewish, Muslim, and Christian sources for another 200 of the most fascinating epigrams and parables ascribed to Jesus. Dr. Meyer includes an intriguing introduction and annotations that put the sayings into perspective.

Book Description HarperSanFrancisco, 1998. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: A fresh translation of previously unknown or little known sayings of Jesus, drawn from a rich array of ancient sources. Marvin Meyer's Definitive Translation of the Gospel of Thomas revealed to a delighted readership profound and provocative sayings of Jesus that are now considered authentic. In this intriguing new collection, he goes beyond the Gospel of Thomas and the New Testament to cull the most significant sayings of Jesus from all the texts of the ancient world -- Christian and non-Christian.Jesus stories and traditions spread far and wide over the first centuries of Christianity and appear in fragments in Islamic hadith and Gnostic texts. Here Meyer draws from these and other sources, including the fragmentary Gnostic Gospel just discovered in Berlin. He presents wise and important sayings of Jesus that are very early and true to Jesus' teachings. From the absorbing introduction and explanatory notes that put the sayings into perspective, to the compelling selection and original translation, this beautifully packaged book will have broad appeal to all those who love the Gospel of Thomas and the Gospels of the New Testament.
