Abadam and his brother Abadel contended for the favour of Yva…
Abadam offered her sapphire while Abadel offered topaz.
Yva was pleased with Abadel and she lay with him.
The sight of Abadel and Yva coupling made Abadam jealous.

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.
