|These are the secret sayings which the living Jesus spoke and which Didymos Judas Thomas wrote down.||[1:1] The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God;  As it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.|
|Didymos Judas Thomas||Prophets|
|(1) And he said, "Whoever finds the interpretation of these sayings will not experience death."||[1:3]
of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make
his paths straight.  John did baptize in
the wilderness, and preach
of repentance for the remission of sins.  And there went out unto
him all the land of Judaea, and they of Jerusalem, and were all baptized of
him in the river of Jordan, confessing

Jesus said, "Let
him who seeks continue seeking until he finds. When he finds,
he will become
troubled. When he becomes troubled,
he will be
astonished, and he will rule
over the All."
||[1:6] And John was clothed with camel's hair, and with a girdle of a skin about his loins; and he did eat locusts and wild honey;  And preached, saying, There cometh one mightier than I after me, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to stoop down and unloose.  I indeed have baptized you with water: but he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost.  And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in Jordan.  And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him:  And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.|
|Let him who seeks continue seeking until he finds||There cometh one
mightier than I
(John is looking for the Christ)
|He finds||Jesus came|
|Become troubled... becomes troubled||I am not worthy

|(3) Jesus said, "If those who lead you say to you, 'See, the kingdom is in the sky,' then the birds of the sky will precede you. If they say to you, 'It is in the sea,' then the fish will precede you. Rather, the kingdom is inside of you, and it is outside of you. When you come to know yourselves, then you will become known, and you will realize that it is you who are the sons of the living father. But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty."||[1:12] And immediately the Spirit driveth him into the wilderness.  And he was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted of Satan; and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him.  Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,  And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.  Now as he walked by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.  And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men.  And straightway they forsook their nets, and followed him.  And when he had gone a little farther thence, he saw James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, who also were in the ship mending their nets.  And straightway he called them: and they left their father Zebedee in the ship with the hired servants, and went after him.  And they went into Capernaum; and straightway on the sabbath day he entered into the synagogue, and taught.  And they were astonished at his doctrine: for he taught them as one that had authority, and not as the scribes.|

Jesus said, "The

are first will become last, and they will become one and
||[1:23] And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out,  Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art, the Holy One of God.  And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him.  And when the unclean spirit had torn him, and cried with a loud voice, he came out of him.  And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, What thing is this? what new doctrine is this?|

|A small child||The Holy One of God|

Jesus said, "Recognize
what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to
you . For there is nothing hidden which will not become manifest."
for with authority commandeth he even the unclean spirits, and they do obey him. 
And immediately his
fame spread abroad throughout all the region round about
Galilee.  And forthwith, when they were come out of the synagogue,
they entered into the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John.
 But Simon's wife's mother lay sick of a fever, and anon they tell
him of her.
|Will become plain||His fame spread abroad|
His disciples questioned him and said to him, "Do you want us to fast? How
shall we pray? Shall we give alms? What diet shall we observe?"
Jesus said, "Do not tell lies, and do not do what you hate, for all things are plain in the sight of heaven. For nothing hidden will not become manifest, and nothing covered will remain without being uncovered."
And he came and took her by the hand, and lifted her up; and
immediately the fever left her, and she ministered unto them.
 And at even, when the sun did set, they brought unto him all that
were diseased, and them that were possessed with devils.  And all
the city was gathered together at the door.  And he healed many
that were sick of divers diseases, and cast out many devils; and
suffered not the
devils to speak,
because they knew him.  And in the morning, rising up a great while
before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there
prayed.  And Simon and they that were with him followed after him.
 And when they had found
him, they said unto him, All men seek for thee.  And
he said unto them, Let us go into the next towns, that I may preach
there also: for therefore came

|(7) Jesus said, "Blessed is the lion which becomes man when consumed by man; and cursed is the man whom the lion consumes, and the lion becomes man."||[1:39] And he preached in their synagogues throughout all Galilee, and cast out devils.  And there came a leper to him, beseeching him, and kneeling down to him, and saying unto him, If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.  And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou clean.  And as soon as he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him, and he was cleansed.  And he straitly charged him, and forthwith sent him away;  And saith unto him, See thou say nothing to any man: but go thy way, shew thyself to the priest, and offer for thy cleansing those things which Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.|

And he said, "The man is like a wise fisherman
who cast his net
sea and drew
it up from
the sea full
of small fish. Among them the wise fisherman
large fish. He threw all the small fish
back into the
sea and chose

But he went out, and began to publish it much, and to
blaze abroad the matter, insomuch that Jesus could
no more openly enter into
the city, but was without in desert places:
and they came to him from
[2:1] And again he entered into Capernaum, after some days; and it was noised that he was in the house.  And straightway many were gathered together, insomuch that there was no room to receive them, no, not so much as about the door: and he preached the word unto them.  And they come unto him, bringing one sick of the palsy, which was borne of four.  And when they could not come nigh unto him for the press, they uncovered the roof where he was: and when they had broken it up, they let down the bed wherein the sick of the palsy lay.  When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee.

|(9) Jesus said, "Now the sower went out, took a handful (of seeds), and scattered them. Some fell on the road; the birds came and gathered them up. Others fell on the rock, did not take root in the soil, and did not produce ears. And others fell on thorns; they choked the seed(s) and worms ate them. And others fell on the good soil and it produced good fruit: it bore sixty per measure and a hundred and twenty per measure."||[2:6] But there were certain of the scribes sitting there, and reasoning in their hearts,  Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God only?  And immediately when Jesus perceived in his spirit that they so reasoned within themselves, he said unto them, Why reason ye these things in your hearts?  Whether is it easier to say to the sick of the palsy, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and take up thy bed, and walk?  But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (he saith to the sick of the palsy,)  I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy bed, and go thy way into thine house.  And immediately he arose, took up the bed, and went forth before them all; insomuch that they were all amazed, and glorified God, saying, We never saw it on this fashion.  And he went forth again by the sea side; and all the multitude resorted unto him, and he taught them.  And as he passed by, he saw Levi the son of Alphaeus sitting at the receipt of custom, and said unto him, Follow me. And he arose and followed him.  And it came to pass, that, as Jesus sat at meat in his house, many publicans and sinners sat also together with Jesus and his disciples: for there were many, and they followed him.|

Jesus said, "I
have cast fire
upon the world,
guarding it until it blazes."
||[2:16] And when the scribes and Pharisees saw him eat with publicans and sinners, they said unto his disciples, How is it that he eateth and drinketh with publicans and sinners?  When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.  And the disciples of John and of the Pharisees used to fast: and they come and say unto him, Why do the disciples of John and of the Pharisees fast, but thy disciples fast not?  And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber fast, while the bridegroom is with them? as long as they have the bridegroom with them, they cannot fast.|

living will not die. In the days when you consumed what is dead,
you made it what is alive. When you come to dwell in the
light, what will you do? On the day
when you were one
you became two.
But when you become
two, what will you do?"
But the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken away from
them, and then shall they fast in those days.  No man also seweth a
piece of new cloth on an
old garment: else the new piece that filled it up taketh
away from the
old, and the rent is made worse.  And no man putteth
new wine into old
bottles: else the new wine doth burst the bottles,
and the wine is spilled, and the bottles
will be marred: but new wine must be put into new bottles.
 And it came to pass, that he went
through the corn fields on the sabbath day; and his disciples began, as
ears of corn.  And the Pharisees said unto him,
Behold, why do they on the sabbath day that which is not lawful? 
And he said unto them, Have ye never read what David did, when he had
need, and was an hungred,
he, and they that were with him?  How he went into the house
of God in the days of Abiathar the high priest,
and did eat the
shewbread, which is not lawful to eat but
for the priests, and gave also to them which were with him?  And he
said unto them, The
sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath:
 Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.

The disciples said to Jesus, "We know that you will depart from
us. Who is to
be our leader?"
Jesus said to them, "Wherever you are, you are to go to James the righteous, for whose sake heaven and earth came into being."
|[3:1] And he entered again into the synagogue; and there was a man there which had a withered hand.  And they watched him, whether he would heal him on the sabbath day; that they might accuse him.  And he saith unto the man which had the withered hand, Stand forth.  And he saith unto them, Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath days, or to do evil? to save life, or to kill? But they held their peace.  And when he had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts, he saith unto the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it out: and his hand was restored whole as the other.  And the Pharisees went forth, and straightway took counsel with the Herodians against him, how they might destroy him.|

Simon Peter said to him, "You are like a righteous angel."
Matthew said to him, "You are like a wise philosopher."
Thomas said to him, "Master, my mouth is wholly incapable of saying whom you are like."
Jesus said, "I am not your master. Because you have drunk, you have become intoxicated from the bubbling spring which I have measured out."
And he took him and withdrew and told him three things. When Thomas returned to his companions, they asked him, "What did Jesus say to you?"
Thomas said to them, "If I tell you one of the things which he told me, you will pick up stones and throw them at me; a fire will come out of the stones and burn you up."
withdrew himself with his disciples
to the sea: and a great multitude from Galilee followed him, and from
Judaea,  And from Jerusalem, and from Idumaea, and from beyond
Jordan; and they about Tyre and Sidon, a great multitude, when they had
heard what great things he did, came unto him.  And he spake to his disciples,
that a small ship should wait on him because of the multitude, lest
they should throng him.  For he had healed many; insomuch that they
pressed upon him for to touch him, as many as had plagues.  And unclean spirits,
when they saw him, fell down before him, and cried, saying, Thou art the Son
of God.  And he straitly charged them
that they should not make him known.  And he goeth up
into a mountain, and calleth unto him whom he would: and they came unto
him.  And he ordained twelve, that they should be with him, and
that he might send them forth to preach,  And to have power to heal
sicknesses, and to cast out devils:  And Simon he
 And James the son of Zebedee, and John the brother of James; and
he surnamed them Boanerges, which is, The sons of thunder:  And
Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew,
and James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Canaanite,
 And Judas Iscariot, which also betrayed him: and they went into an house.
 And the multitude cometh together again, so that they could not
so much as eat
bread.  And when his friends
heard of it, they went out to lay hold on him: for they said, He is beside himself.
 And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem said, He hath Beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils casteth he out devils.  And he called them unto him, and said unto them in parables, How can Satan cast out Satan?  And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.  And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.  And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end.  No man can enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house.  Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme:  But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation:  Because they said, He hath an unclean spirit.

There came then his brethren and his mother, and, standing without,
sent unto him, calling him.  And the multitude sat about him, and
they said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren without seek for
thee.  And he answered them, saying, Who is my mother, or my
brethren?  And he looked round about on them which sat about him,
and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!  For whosoever shall do the
will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and
[4:1] And he began again to teach by the sea side: and there was gathered unto him a great multitude, so that he entered into a ship, and sat in the sea; and the whole multitude was by the sea on the land.  And he taught them many things by parables, and said unto them in his doctrine,  Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow:  And it came to pass, as he sowed, some fell by the way side, and the fowls of the air came and devoured it up.  And some fell on stony ground, where it had not much earth; and immediately it sprang up, because it had no depth of earth:  But when the sun was up, it was scorched; and because it had no root, it withered away.  And some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up, and choked it, and it yielded no fruit.  And other fell on good ground, and did yield fruit that sprang up and increased; and brought forth, some thirty, and some sixty, and some an hundred.  And he said unto them, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

And when he was

 The sower soweth the word.  And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown; but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts.  And these are they likewise which are sown on stony ground; who, when they have heard the word, immediately receive it with gladness;  And have no root in themselves, and so endure but for a time: afterward, when affliction or persecution ariseth for the word's sake, immediately they are offended.  And these are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear the word,  And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful.  And these are they which are sown on good ground; such as hear the word, and receive it, and bring forth fruit, some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some an hundred.

And he said unto them, Is a candle brought to be put under a bushel, or
under a bed? and not to be set on a candlestick?  For there is
nothing hid, which shall not be manifested;
neither was any thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad. 
If any man have ears
let him hear.
 And he said unto them, Take heed what ye hear: with
what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you: and unto you that hear shall
more be given.
 For he that hath, to him shall be given: and
he that hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he hath.

listen to my words, these stones
will minister to you. For there are five trees for you in Paradise

Whoever becomes acquainted with them will not experience death."
But without a parable spake he not unto them: and when they were alone, he
expounded all things to his disciples.  And the same
day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other
side.  And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he
was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships.
 And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the
ship, so that it was now full.  And he was in the hinder part of
the ship, asleep
on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master,
carest thou not that we perish?
 And he arose, and rebuked the wind,
and said unto the

wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
 And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful?
how is it that ye have no faith?  And they feared exceedingly, and
said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea
obey him? [5:1] And they came over unto the other
side of the

He said to them, "It is like a mustard seed. It is the smallest of all seeds. But when it falls on tilled soil, it produces a great plant and becomes a shelter for birds of the sky."
And when he was come
out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs
with an unclean
spirit,  Who had his dwelling among the tombs;
and no man could bind him, no, not with chains:  Because that he had
been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been
plucked asunder by him, and broken in pieces:
neither could any
man tame him.  And always, night and day, he was in the mountains,
and in the tombs,
crying, and cutting himself with stones. 
But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him,  And
cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus,
thou Son of the
most high God? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment me

Mary said to Jesus, "Whom are your disciples like?"
He said, "They are like children who have settled in a field which is not theirs. When the owners of the field come, they will say, 'Let us have back our field.' They (will) undress in their presence in order to let them have back their field and to give it back to them. Therefore I say, if the owner of a house knows that the thief is coming, he will begin his vigil before he comes and will not let him dig through into his house of his domain to carry away his goods. You, then, be on your guard against the world. Arm yourselves with great strength lest the robbers find a way to come to you, for the difficulty which you expect will (surely) materialize. Let there be among you a man of understanding. When the grain ripened, he came quickly with his sickle in his hand and reaped it. Whoever has ears to hear, let him hear."
Now there was there nigh
unto the mountains a great herd of swine feeding.  And
all the devils besought him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we
may enter into them.  And forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the
unclean spirits went out, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran
violently down a steep place into the sea, (they were about two
thousand;) and were choked in the sea.  And they that fed the swine
fled, and told it in the city, and in the country. And
they went out to see what it was that was done.  And they come to
Jesus, and see him that was possessed with the devil, and had the
legion, sitting, and clothed,
and in his right mind: and they were afraid.  And they that saw it
told them how it befell to him that was possessed with the devil, and
also concerning the swine.  And they began to pray him to depart
out of their
coasts.  And when he was come into the ship, he that
had been possessed with the devil prayed him that he might be with him.
 Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to thy
friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee,
and hath had compassion on thee.  And he departed, and began to
publish in Decapolis how great things Jesus had done for him: and all
men did marvel.  And when Jesus was passed over again by ship unto
the other side, much
people gathered unto him: and he was nigh unto the sea.
 And, behold, there cometh one of the rulers
of the synagogue,
Jairus by name; and when he saw him, he fell at his feet,  And
besought him greatly, saying, My little daughter lieth at the point of death:
I pray thee, come and lay thy hands on her, that she may be healed; and
she shall live.  And Jesus went with him; and much people followed
him, and thronged him.  And a certain woman, which had an issue of
blood twelve years,  And had suffered many things of many
physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered,
but rather grew worse,  When she had heard of Jesus, came in the
press behind, and touched his garment.  For she said, If I may
touch but his clothes, I shall be whole.  And straightway the
fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she
was healed of that plague.  And Jesus, immediately
knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned
him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes?  And his
disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude
thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?  And he looked
round about to see her
that had done this thing.

Jesus saw infants
being suckled. He said to his disciples, "These infants being suckled
are like those who enter the kingdom."
They said to him, "Shall we then, as children, enter the kingdom?"
Jesus said to them, "When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female; and when you fashion eyes in the place of an eye, and a hand in place of a hand, and a foot in place of a foot, and a likeness in place of a likeness; then will you enter the kingdom."
But the woman
fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came
and fell down before him, and told him all the truth.  And he said
unto her, Daughter,
thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy
plague.  While he yet spake, there came from the ruler of the
synagogue's house certain which said, Thy daughter is
dead: why troublest thou the Master any further?  As soon as Jesus
heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the
synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe.  And he suffered no man to
follow him, save Peter, and James, and John the brother of James. 
And he cometh to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and seeth the
tumult, and them that wept and wailed greatly.  And when he was come in, he
saith unto them, Why make ye this ado, and weep? the damsel
is not dead, but sleepeth.  And they laughed him to scorn. But when
he had put them all out,
he taketh the father and the mother of the damsel,
and them that were with him, and entereth in
where the damsel
was lying.  And he took the damsel
by the hand,
and said unto her, Talitha cumi; which is, being interpreted, Damsel, I
say unto thee, arise.
 And straightway the
damsel arose, and walked; for
she was of the
age of twelve years. And they were astonished with a great
astonishment.  And he charged them straitly that no
man should know it; and commanded that something should be given her to
[6:1] And he went out from thence, and came into his own country; and his disciples follow him.  And when the sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this man these things? and what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands?  Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him.

folk, and healed them.  And he marvelled because of their unbelief.

And king Herod heard of him; (for his name was spread abroad:) and he

But when Herod heard thereof, he said, It is John, whom I
beheaded: he is risen from the dead.  For Herod
himself had sent forth and laid hold upon John, and bound him in prison
for Herodias' sake, his brother Philip's wife: for he had married her.
 For John had said unto Herod, It is not lawful for thee
to have thy brother's wife.  Therefore Herodias had a quarrel
against him, and would have killed him; but she could not:  For Herod feared John,
knowing that he was a just man and an holy, and observed him;
and when he
heard him, he did many things, and heard him gladly.

sorry; yet for his oath's sake, and for their sakes which sat
with him, he would not reject her.  And immediately
the king sent an executioner, and commanded his head to
be brought: and he went and beheaded
him in the prison,  And brought his head in
a charger, and gave it to the damsel: and the damsel gave it to her
mother.  And when
his disciples heard of it, they came and took up his corpse,
and laid it in
a tomb.  And the apostles gathered
themselves together unto Jesus, and told him all things,
both what they had done, and what they had taught.  And he said
unto them, Come
ye yourselves apart into
a desert place, and rest a while:
for there were many
coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat. 
And they departed into a desert place by ship privately.  And the people saw
them departing, and many knew him, and ran afoot thither out of all cities,
them, and came
together unto him.

And he commanded the people to sit down on the ground: and he took the seven loaves, and gave thanks, and brake, and gave to his disciples to set before them; and they did set them before the people.

to set them also before them.  So they did
eat, and were
filled: and they took up of the broken meat
that was left seven
baskets.  And they that had eaten were about four
thousand: and he sent them away.  And straightway he entered into a ship with his
disciples, and came into the parts of Dalmanutha.  And the Pharisees
came forth, and began to question
with him, seeking
of him a sign

and saith, Why doth this

the ship again departed to
the other side.

neither had they in the
ship with them more than one loaf.
 And he charged them, saying, Take heed, beware of the leaven of the
Pharisees, and of the leaven of Herod.  And they reasoned
among themselves, saying, It is because we have no bread. 
And when Jesus
knew it, he saith unto them, Why reason ye,
because ye have no bread?
ye not yet, neither understand?

to serve two
masters; otherwise he will honor the one and treat the other
contemptuously. No man

to drink new wine. And new wine is
not put into old
wineskins, lest they burst;
nor is old wine

wineskin, lest it spoil it.
An old patch is not sewn onto a new garment,

And he began to teach them, that the Son of man
must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders, and of the
chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and after three
days rise again.  And he spake that saying openly. And Peter took him, and
began to rebuke him.  But when he had turned about and
looked on his
disciples, he rebuked Peter, saying, Get thee behind me, Satan: for thou savourest not the
things that be of God, but the things that be of men.
 And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.  For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it.  For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?  Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?  Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.

And as they came down from the mountain, he charged them that they should tell no man what things they had seen, till the Son of man were risen from the dead.  And they kept that saying with themselves, questioning one with another what the rising from the dead should mean.  And they asked him, saying, Why say the scribes that Elias must first come?  And he answered and told them, Elias verily cometh first, and restoreth all things; and how it is written of the Son of man, that he must suffer many things, and be set at nought.  But I say unto you, That Elias is indeed come, and they have done unto him whatsoever they listed, as it is written of him.  And when he came to his disciples, he saw a great multitude about them, and the scribes questioning with them.

And ofttimes it hath cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to
destroy him: but if thou canst do any thing, have compassion on us, and
help us.  Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible
to him that believeth.  And straightway the father of the child
cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help
thou mine unbelief.  When Jesus saw that the people
came running together, he rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him,

out?  And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing,
but by prayer and fasting.
 And they departed thence, and passed through Galilee; and he would not that any man should know it.  For he taught his disciples, and said unto them, The Son of man is delivered into the hands of men, and they shall kill him; and after that he is killed, he shall rise the third day.  But they understood not that saying, and were afraid to ask him.

And James and John, the sons of Zebedee, come unto him, saying, Master, we
would that thou shouldest do for us whatsoever we shall desire. 
And he said unto them, What would ye that I should do for you? 
They said unto him, Grant
unto us that we may sit, one on thy right hand, and the other on thy
left hand, in thy glory.  But Jesus said unto them, Ye
know not what ye ask: can ye drink of the cup that I
drink of? and be baptized with the baptism that I am
baptized with?  And they said unto him, We can. And Jesus said unto
them, Ye shall indeed drink
of the cup that I drink of; and with the baptism that I am
baptized withal shall ye be baptized:  But to sit on my right hand

 And they came to Jericho: and as he went out of Jericho with his disciples and a great number of people, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the highway side begging.  And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out, and say, Jesus, thou Son of David, have mercy on me.  And many charged him that he should hold his peace: but he cried the more a great deal, Thou Son of David, have mercy on me.  And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called. And they call the blind man, saying unto him, Be of good comfort, rise; he calleth thee.  And he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus.  And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive my sight.  And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.

your way into the village over against you: and as soon as ye be
entered into it, ye shall find a colt tied,
whereon never man

and bring him.  And if any
man say unto you, Why do ye this? say ye that the Lord
hath need of him; and straightway he will send him
hither.  And they went their way, and found the colt tied
by the door without in a place where two ways met; and they loose him.
 And certain of them that stood there said unto them, What do ye, loosing the
colt?  And they said unto them even as Jesus had commanded:
and they let
them go.  And they brought the colt to Jesus, and cast
their garments on him; and he sat upon him.  And many spread their
garments in the way: and others cut down branches off the trees, and
strawed them in the way.  And they that went before, and they that
followed, cried, saying, Hosanna; Blessed is he that cometh in the name
of the Lord:
 Blessed be the
kingdom of our father David, that cometh in the name of the Lord:
Hosanna in the highest.  And Jesus entered into Jerusalem, and into
the temple: and when he had looked round about upon all things, and now
the eventide was come, he went out unto Bethany
with the twelve.
 And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry:  And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find any thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet.  And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it.

A certain man planted a vineyard, and set an hedge about it, and digged a place for the winefat, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country.  And at the season he sent to the husbandmen a servant, that he might receive from the husbandmen of the fruit of the vineyard.  And they caught him, and beat him, and sent him away empty.  And again he sent unto them another servant; and at him they cast stones, and wounded him in the head, and sent him away shamefully handled.

But those husbandmen said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and the inheritance shall be ours.  And they took him, and killed him, and cast him out of the vineyard.  What shall therefore the lord of the vineyard do? he will come and destroy the husbandmen, and will give the vineyard unto others.  And have ye not read this scripture; The stone which the builders rejected is become the head of the corner:  This was the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?  And they sought to lay hold on him, but feared the people: for they knew that he had spoken the parable against them: and they left him, and went their way.|

And there were some that had indignation within themselves, and said, Why was this waste of the ointment made?  For it might have been sold for more than three hundred pence, and have been given to the poor. And they murmured against her.  And Jesus said, Let her alone; why trouble ye her? she hath wrought a good work on me.

And the chief priests and all the council sought for
against Jesus to

Jesus said, "What is the sin that I have committed, or wherein have I been defeated? But when the bridegroom leaves the bridal chamber, then let them fast and pray."
But neither so did their witness agree together.
 And the high priest stood up in the midst, and asked Jesus,
saying, Answerest thou nothing? what is it which these
witness against thee?  But he held his peace, and
answered nothing. Again the high priest asked him, and said unto him, Art thou the Christ, the

And some began to spit on him, and to cover his face, and to buffet
him, and to say unto him, Prophesy:
and the servants
did strike him with the palms of their hands.
 And as Peter was beneath in the palace, there cometh one of the maids of the high priest:  And when she saw Peter warming himself, she looked upon him, and said, And thou also wast with Jesus of Nazareth.

 And he denied it again. And a little
after, they that stood by said again to Peter,

of them: for thou art a Galilaean,
and thy speech agreeth thereto.  But he began to curse and to
swear, saying, I know not this man of whom ye speak. 
And the second time the cock

unto him, Before the cock

And when he thought thereon, he wept.
[15:1] And straightway in the morning the chief priests held a consultation with the elders and scribes and the whole council, and bound Jesus, and carried him away, and delivered him to Pilate.

hidden will be revealed to him."
And Pilate asked him, Art thou the King of the Jews?
And he answering said unto him, Thou sayest it.
 And the chief priests accused him of many things: but he answered nothing.
 And Pilate asked him again, saying, Answerest thou nothing?
behold how many things they witness against thee.  But Jesus yet answered
nothing; so that Pilate marvelled.  Now at that feast
he released unto them one prisoner, whomsoever they desired.  And
there was one
named Barabbas, which lay bound with them that had made
insurrection with him, who had committed murder in the insurrection.
 And the multitude crying aloud began to desire him to do as he
had ever done unto them.

and sold it. And the one who bought it went plowing and found the treasure.
He began to lend money
at interest to whomever he wished."
But Pilate answered them, saying, Will ye that I release unto you the King of the Jews?
 For he knew that the chief priests had delivered him for envy.
 But the chief priests moved the people,
that he should rather release Barabbas
unto them.  And Pilate answered and said again unto them, What will
ye then that I shall do unto him whom ye call the King of the Jews?
 And they cried out again, Crucify him.
 Then Pilate said unto them, Why, what evil hath he done? And they
cried out the more exceedingly, Crucify him.
 And so Pilate, willing to content the people, released Barabbas unto them, and delivered Jesus, when he had scourged him, to be crucified.  And the soldiers led him away into the hall, called Praetorium; and they call together the whole band.  And they clothed him with purple, and platted a crown of thorns, and put it about his head,  And began to salute him, Hail, King of the Jews!  And they smote him on the head with a reed, and did spit upon him, and bowing their knees worshipped him.  And when they had mocked him, they took off the purple from him, and put his own clothes on him, and led him out to crucify him.

mingled with myrrh: but he
received it not.  And when they had crucified
him, they parted his
garments, casting lots upon them, what every man should take.
 And it was the third hour, and they crucified him.  And the
superscription of his accusation was written over, THE KING OF THE JEWS.

unto him;) and

with him unto Jerusalem.
 And now when the even was come, because it was the preparation, that is, the day before the sabbath,  Joseph of Arimathaea, an honourable counsellor, which also waited for the kingdom of God, came, and went in boldly unto Pilate, and craved the body of Jesus.  And Pilate marvelled if he were already dead: and calling unto him the centurion, he asked him whether he had been any while dead.  And when he knew it of the centurion, he gave the body to Joseph.  And he bought fine linen, and took him down, and wrapped him in the linen, and laid him in a sepulchre which was hewn out of a rock, and rolled a stone unto the door of the sepulchre.

Magdalene and Mary
the mother of Joses beheld where he was laid.
[16:1] And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him.  And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun.  And they said among themselves, Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the sepulchre?  And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very great.  And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were affrighted.  And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.  But go your way, tell his disciples and Peter that he goeth before you into Galilee: there shall ye see him, as he said unto you.  And they went out quickly, and fled from the sepulchre; for they trembled and were amazed: neither said they any thing to any man; for they were afraid.

114 as it compares to the extended ending of Mark.
(114) Simon Peter said to him, "Let Mary leave us, for women are not worthy of life."
Jesus said, "I myself shall lead her in order to make her male, so that she too may become a living spirit resembling you males. For every woman who will make herself male will enter the kingdom of heaven."
In Thomas, Peter argues to exclude Mary. Rather than to exclude Mary, Jesus promises to lead her. Dramatically, in Mark's gospel the Angel tells Mary to proclaim this same promise to Peter, who had denied the Lord three times, (Mark 16:7). Reconciliation between Peter and Mary is encouraged by this message given to Mary for Peter. Just as Jesus had promised to go with and lead Mary, so also the message of the angel through Mary to Peter is that Jesus "goeth before you" In this way the promise is to both Peter and Mary that they might become living Spirits.
16:9-20 (The extended ending for Mark) also appears to connect with
 Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils.  And she went and told them that had been with him, as they mourned and wept.  And they, when they had heard that he was alive, and had been seen of her, believed not.
 After that he appeared in another form unto two of them, as they walked, and went into the country.  And they went and told it unto the residue: neither believed they them.
 Afterward he appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat, and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen.  And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.  He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.  And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;  They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.  And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.
Verses 9-20 are bracketet in the NU-Text as not original. They are lacking in early manuscripts such as Codex Sinaiticus and Codex Vaticanus. However, many other manuscripts of Mark contain them.
|Women are not worthy of life||Upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart|
|I myself shall lead her||Go ye into all the world
|Life... she too may become a living Spirit||He was alive|
|Resembling you males||He appeared in another form|
|Make her male... for every woman who will make herself male||He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved|
|Enter the kingdom of heaven||Received up into heaven|
