Are we there yet?

*

“Tell me, when will the kingdom come?” said Judas Thomas.

Joshua said,

“why do you wash out the inside of a cup?

So that you may fill it and drink from it?

Whoever makes good the inside, makes good the outside also.

*

The kingdom will not come by watching for it.

It will not be said, ‘look, there it is!’ or, ‘look, here it is!’

*

The kingdom is spread upon the earth but you cannot see it.

*

The kingdom is within you and without you,

and when you know yourself,

then you will be known and you will understand,

that this heaven will pass away,

and the one above it will pass away also.”

*

The Living One

THE LIVING ONE

Caravan to Cairns

Stuart France

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.

“… fascinating and unique …”  Amazon review
