Come Into the Light (Meaning of Thomas 11)

Meaning of Thomas 11 Eludes Scholars

“When you come into the light, what will you do?” riddles Yeshua at Thomas 11. Too little commentary exists for this cryptic logion. When challenged to explore the meaning of Thomas 11, most scholars either dust off an end times analogy or wave the Gnostic flag and retreat. Foul ball. Any good scholar knows that the Gnostics believe creation is corrupt and matter is vile. For them, a human body cannot “come into the light.”

Yes, Thomas 11 is pure Christ. The problem? This passage has no precise corollary in Scripture. It’s also one of the most radical and least understood logia in Thomas, or any of Christ’s teachings. But it isn’t Gnostic, and it’s not about the end of the world. Has no one solved Yeshua’s riddle?

Revelation of the Soul

Revelation of the Soul declares the truth of human immortality, and reveals how to enter the kingdom of God while we live. Jesus Christ proclaims mankind’s “inheritance” throughout every gospel and the letters of Paul, but Christianity does not teach it. Central issues: who or what is our greatest love? What caused the first immortal humans to die? What is the path to a life without death? Submitted here in heartfelt detail, Revelation of the Soul is the Savior’s precious gift to a glorious race of immortal children who’ve forgotten how to live.

When you were born, you were already married.

This information explores the context of marriage and divorce in the natural and supernatural realms, and carries moral imperatives. As such, Revelation of the Soul is directed toward those seekers who wish to heal the Separation—and inherit the kingdom prepared for us since the creation of the world.

“Yet one shall be clothed with light in the Sacrament of the Mating.”
St. Philip the Evangelist

Practical Oneness (Thomas 22)

Practical Oneness is the meaning of Thomas 22. Christ instructs followers to ‘make the above as the below’ and experience the kingdom of God.

Oneness dwells at the heart of Christ’s teachings. His objective is to make the human ascension process comprehensible and achievable in one lifetime. With practice and faith, Yeshua’s wisdom and grace can inspire self healing for everything from stress and chronic anxiety to serious medical conditions. The ultimate goal of Master’s practical Oneness program is to assist God’s children to find heaven on earth. That term, children, is key to Oneness and ascension.

My Perfect Father

I’ve always believed that my perfect father would be the most loving and logical being there is. Einstein knew this for a fact. In his complex equations, he glimpsed the creator’s handiwork. The perfection and love of God appeared to Einstein as the natural laws and forces that keep the planets safe in their orbits and enable the stars to create and nurture life.

Like Albert E, I did not recognize my perfect father in the world’s spiritual belief systems. In every faith I studied, the logic ultimately fell apart: my perfect loving father will harm me if I’ve been bad. Even worse, a second, evil god will attack me for no apparent reason. If the goal is to present a single, unconditionally loving creator, this reasoning doesn’t. My entire being rejected it. Continue reading My Perfect Father

The Gospel of Jesus’ Wife

What is the meaning of Gospel of Jesus’s Wife?

Gospel of Jesus’s Wife, the small fragment of papyrus acquired by Professor Karen King of Harvard Divinity School, was classified as “ancient” (600 – 700 CE) in March of 2014. After almost two years of scientific analysis, multiple professional teams have deemed this tiny fragment “authentic.” No evidence of modern fabrication was found. Now, on to the Big Question. What or who is Jesus’s wife”? The Biblical Archaeology Society states that the meaning of this manuscript’s text remains open for debate.

“This is not, in any case, evidence that
Jesus was married.”
