… “I will bring strangers upon you.
They shall defile your brightness.
They shall bring you down to the pit.
They shall turn their hearts against the
beauty of your wisdom, and you shall die
the death of those slain by the hand of strangers.
Will you then say to your slayer, ‘I am a god,
there is no god in the hand that slays me?’”
The Spirit banished Abadam from its garden in the east.
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.
