Chapter Summary

The Apostle sat in the chariot of the general, and all the brothers remained behind. The general came and said to the driver: "I am praying that I may be worthy to sit beneath the feet of the Son of God, Jesus, the Messiah. And when he had gone about a mile, Judas Thomas begged the general, and made him get up to sit beside him, and ordered the driver to sit in his place. Now Judas saw a herd of wild asses feeding at some distance off the highway and he said to the general: "If you believe in Jesus, go to the herd and say to them: 'Judas, the Apostle of Jesus the Messiah, the Son of God, says, Let four of you come, for I require them'. And when he spoke these things, all the wild asses were looking at him.
