Chapter Summary

Mygdonia says to Judas: "Give me the sign of Jesus the Messiah, and let me receive his gift from your hands, before you depart from the world". And when Narkia had brought (them), Mygdonia uncovered her head, and was standing before the holy Apostle. And he took the oil, and cast (it) on her head, and said: "Holy oil, which was given to us for unction, and hidden mystery of the cross, which is seen through it. And Karish went early in the morning to Mygdonia and to her nurse, and found her and her nurse praying and saying: "New God who has come hither through a strange man; holy God. And king Mazdai sent and fetched Judas Thomas, the Apostle of the Most High. And Judas went out from the house of Karish and went to the house of Sifur the general and was dwelling there.
