Chapter Summary

There is no doubt that the Gospel of Thomas used a Jewish Christian source, be it the Gospel of the Nazoraeans or a collection of "Sayings." Some still think that even this tradition is a perversion of the canonical Gospels. It would seem, however, that in this case at least "Thomas" is not perverted. His version contains no allegorical features and gives sense. It seems to reveal that "realized eschatology" is the key to the interpretation of the parable as spoken by Jesus. This, however, can only be discerned, if we agree that the problems of the Jewish Christian Gospel tradition should be discussed in a much wider framework than has been done until now.

Keywords: Gospel of the Nazoraeans; Gospel of Thomas; Jewish Christian Gospel tradition
