Gospel of Thomas, The
Mid-to late-second-century Gnostic writing (long after the apostle Thomas's death); collection of sayings attributed to Jesus. Many are similar to statements found in the Synoptic Gospels (Matthew, Mark and Luke); a few may represent an early form of Gnosticism. Certainly, Gospel of Thomas exhibits a negative view of women not found in the New Testament. According to Gospel of Thomas, "every woman who makes herself male will enter the kingdom of heaven." No early Christian writer considered this document to have any authority for believers or any place among the canonical Scriptures, probably because its theology was questionable and because it could not be clearly connected to Thomas. See also canon; Gospels, canonical; Nag Hammadi; Synoptic Gospels.
