…As Abadam and Yva made their way out of the garden in the
east, it seemed as though the leaves of the trees themselves
were whispering: “I will put enmity between you and the
woman, and between your seed and her offspring.
You shall bruise his head
as he shall bite your heel,
and he shall bruise your head
as you shall bite his heel.”
But it was the serpent Abadel hissing at
Abadam from the branches of the tree of life.
When Abadam and Yva had departed the garden in the
east, there was silence there about the space of one day.
To bar the way to its holy mountain so that
Abadam and Yva could never return, the Spirit
appointed a cherub with whirling limbs of flame.
THE LIVING ONE
Caravan to Cairns
Two young men, a road trip across the Australian Outback, strange encounters in isolated settlements… and a book that will change one of them forever.
From the harsh heat of the dusty road to the cool of the Temple, two stories… one immediate, one timeless… intertwine to illuminate each other.
Many scholars believe that the Gospel of Thomas preserves a glimpse into the oral tradition of the Essenes. The book is a collection of sayings, parables and dialogues attributed to Jesus. In this unique interpretation author and essayist, Stuart France brings the oral tradition to life, retelling the Gospel in his own words, in the way it may have been told around the hearth-fires of our fore-fathers.
Accompanied by in-depth comments which draw upon the Mystery School Tradition, The Living One provides a new window on an age-old story.
