“The secret sayings that the savior spoke to Judas Thomas which I, even I, Mathaias, wrote down, while I was walking, listening to them speak with one another. (138,1);
The savior said, “Brother Thomas while you have time in the world, listen to me, and I will reveal to you the things you have pondered in your mind.
Now, since it has been said that you are my twin and true companion, examine yourself, and learn who you are, in what way you exist, and how you will come to be. Since you will be called my brother, it is not fitting that you be ignorant of yourself. And I know that you have understood, because you had already understood that I am the knowledge of the truth.
So while you accompany me, although you are uncomprehending, you have in fact already come to know, and you will be called ‘the one who knows himself’.
For he who has not known himself has known nothing, but he who has known himself has at the same time already achieved knowledge about the depth of the all.
So then, you, my brother Thomas, have beheld what is obscure to men, that is, what they ignorantly stumble against.” (138,4-138,21);
Thomas, spoke, saying, “Lord, why does this visible light that shines on behalf of men rise and set?”
The savior said, “O blessed Thomas, of course this visible light shines on your behalf – not in order that you remain here, but rather that you might come forth – and whenever all the elect abandon bestiality, then this light will withdraw up to its essence, and its essence will welcome it, since it is a good servant.” (139,12-31);
Thomas answered and said, “It is obvious and has been said, ‘Many are those who cry out to those who do not know the repose of their soul.'”
And the savior answered, saying, “Blessed is the wise man who sought after the truth, and when he found it, he rested upon it forever and was unafraid of those who wanted to disturb him.” (139.31-141,2);
Thomas answered and said, “It is beneficial for us, lord, to rest among our own?”
The savior said, “Yes, it is useful. And it is good for you, since things visible among men will dissolve: for the vessel of their flesh will dissolve, and when it is brought to naught it will come to be among visible things, among things that are seen. And then the fire which they see gives them pain on account of love for the faith they formerly possessed. They will be gathered back to that which is visible.
Moreover, those who have sight among things that are not visible, without the first love they will perish in the concern for this life and the scorching of the fire.
Only a little while longer, and that which is visible will dissolve; then shapeless shades will emerge, and in the midst of tombs they will forever dwell upon the corpses in pain and corruption of soul.” (141,2-18);
Thomas replied, “You have certainly persuaded us, lord. We realize in our heart, and it is obvious, that this is so, and that your word is sufficient. But these sayings that you speak to us are ridiculous and contemptible to the world since they are misunderstood. So how can we go preach them, since we are not esteemed in the world?” (142,21-26);
The savior answered and said, “Truly I tell you that he who will listen to your word and turn away his face or sneer at it or smirk at these things, truly I tell you that he will be handed over to the ruler above who rules over all the powers as their king, and he will turn that one around and cast him from heaven down to the abyss, and he will be imprisoned in a narrow dark place.
Moreover, he can neither turn nor move on account of the great depth of Tartaros, and the heavy bitterness of Hades that is steadfast. And they are drawn into it so that they will not escape. They will not put away their madness.
And the people that will persecute you will be handed over to the angel Tartarouchos who bears whips of fire, pursuing them as fiery scourges cast a shower of sparks into the face of the one who is pursued.
If he flees westward, he finds the fire. If he turns southward, he finds it there as well. If he turns northward, the threat of seething fire meets him again.
Nor does he find the way to the east so as to flee there and be saved, for he did not find it in the day he was in the body, so that he might find it in the day of judgment. (142,26-143,7)” (The Book of Thomas – The Contender)…
