Product description

Product Description

An enigmatic manuscript. A secret lost for 2,000 years. The discovery that shines new light on Christianity.

Jesus said: “I have cast fire upon the world…”

The Thomas Code uncovers and explains the mathematical secret of the Gospel of Thomas.  This fascinating book takes the reader on a journey of discovery involving an ancient mathematical code, sayings of Jesus that are riddles we must solve, and a Gospel whose structure is more advanced than anything else known from antiquity. The book demonstrates how this extraordinary Gospel is earlier than the four gospels in the bible.

The Gospel of Thomas was esteemed among early Christians. But after it was declared heretical by the church, all copies were destroyed. Long thought to have been lost, it was recovered in 1945 from a codex buried in a jar in the Egyptian desert.  Unlike the New Testament gospels, Thomas is a list of sayings spoken by Jesus. Some are familiar, while others are strange and mysterious. Even odder is the bizarre way in which the sayings are organized, seemingly without any rhyme or reason. Scholars have searched for a structure, but nothing has been found. Until now!

The Thomas Code shows how the Gospel is organized using a mathematical formula and how the clues to this formula have been hiding in plain sight. The abundant evidence is set out simply and clearly with the help of diagrams. Remarkably, the Thomas Code is also the key to the miracle of the loaves and fishes and enables us to understand this miracle for the first time.

The Thomas Code shows a Gospel that delights in paradoxes and riddles. But this is not all. The Gospel of Thomas is structured to reach a climax at which a secret will be told. That secret is a shocking revelation about the nature of Jesus himself.

Includes a complete translation of the Gospel of Thomas organized and renumbered according to the Thomas Code.

S.P. Laurie studied mathematics at the University of Oxford and is the author of The Rock and the Tower.
