Host: Shirley Paulson, PhD

Like many other canonical and extra-canonical documents from the first and second centuries, the Gospel of Thomas contains a number of parables.  Gospel of Thomas has more or less three kinds of parables: those with almost exact parallels with Matthew, Mark, or Luke; those with similar story-lines to canonical gospels but with strikingly different meanings; and those that have little or no similarities to canonical gospels.  This Monday Textual study examines the Gospel of Thomas parables from several different angles.

Good examples are available on the gospels.net website, and Early Christian Writings.
