AAA Day in the LIfE of the 137 SS Mystic – Jan. 27, 2013 – Gospel of Thomas ~ 37 ~ Gospel of Judas

January 27th, 2013 

Thank God for ‘Doubting Thomas’. His doubts healed the wounds of our own disbelief. Thomas the doubter became the Thomas the model believer, an example for each one of us. He is a great beacon of light for all of us as we prepare to enter the Year of Faith. Yet the tradition tells us that this so called “doubting Thomas” died a martyr for his faith.

Yesterday it was pointed out to me that my birthday July 3rd happens to be associated with the feast of St. Thomas, the author of The Gospel According to Thomas, one of the Gnostic Gospels.

The Gospel According to Thomas

The Gospel According to Thomas, commonly shortened to the Gospel of Thomas, is a well preserved early Christiannon-canonical sayings-gospel which many scholars believe provides insight into the Christian Oral Tradition. It was discovered near Nag Hammadi, Egypt, in December 1945, in one of a group of books known as the Nag Hammadi library. The Gospel of Thomas was found among a collection of fifty-two writings that included, in addition to an excerpt from Plato’s Republic, gospels claiming to have been written by Jesus’s disciple Philip. Scholars have speculated that the works were buried in response to a letter from Bishop Athanasius who for the first time declared a strict canon of Christian scripture. [1]

The Coptic language text, the second of seven contained in what modern-day scholars have designated as Codex II, is composed of 114 sayings attributed to Jesus.[2] Almost half of these sayings resemble those found in the Canonical Gospels, while it is speculated that the other sayings were added from Gnostic tradition.[3] Its place of origin may have been Syria, where Thomasine traditions were strong.[4] The introduction states: “These are the hidden words that the living Jesus spoke and Didymos Judas Thomas wrote them down.”[5] Didymus (Greek) and Thomas (Aramaic) both mean “twin”. Some critical scholars suspect that this reference to the Apostle Thomas is false, and that therefore the true author is unknown.

However I need to point out that until recently the Feast of St. Thomas was held on December 21st and then moved to July 3rd.

Feast days

When the feast of Saint Thomas was inserted in the Roman calendar in the 9th century, it was assigned to 21 December, although the Martyrology of St. Jerome had a mention of the Apostle on 3 July, the date to which the Roman celebration was transferred in 1969, so that it would no longer interfere with the major ferial days ofAdvent.

3 July was the day on which his relics were translated from Mylapore, a place along the coast of theMarina BeachChennai (Madras) in India to the city of Edessa in Mesopotamia.

Handbook of Christian Feast and Customs, ©1952.

In some parts of central Europe ancient customs of “driving demons away are practiced on the Feast of Saint Thomas the Apostle (December 21) and during the following nights (Rough Nights), with much noise, cracking of whips, ringing of hand bells, and parades of figures in horrible masks.

In a Christianized version of this custom farmers will walk through the buildings and around the farmyard, accompanied by a son or one of the farm hands. They carry incense and holy water, which they sprinkle around as they walk. Meanwhile, the rest of the family and servants are gathered in the living room reciting the rosary. This rite is to sanctify and bless the whole farm in preparation for Christmas, to keep all evil spirits away on the festive days, and to obtain God’s special protection for the coming year.

Also if a single woman on St. Thomas Day can pick out a young rooster from among a brood of sleeping chicks, she will soon obtain a husband, or see him in her dreams.

Another coincidence is that 1957 the year I was born was the Year of the Rooster according to the Chinese horoscope.

But the most profound coincidence is that back on Monday July 06, 2009 @ 6:40 am I posted the following topic on this  forum >> http://breakfornews.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5228&start=0

Which I have since moved to my wordblog found here;

Please note in the first entry I make the following statement based on what I found on page 18 of this book.

Nag Hammadi Codex II manuscript of the Coptic text … occupies page 32, line 10, through page 51, line 28.

32 10 51 28

And Pythagoras would whisper into the ear of Fibonacci … do you see it?
Do you see the code?

Now if we unscramble the numbers 32 10 51 28 we arrive at the complete Fibonacci Code. 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8 …. nearly identical to CARD X of the Tarot or the Fibonacci numbers sequence.

And I just noticed that my Toronto Public Library Card begins with the numbers 2713.
A reminder of Exodus 20:3-17 

UPDATE March 29, 2015

Is the ‘137 NARRATIVE’ is linked to 130-170 AD??

The GOSPEL of JUDAS

The codex has been dated by Carbon 14 dating and by paleographic techniques, and found to date from approximately A.D. 300. The Gospel of Judas itself of course must have been written well before this to have been mentioned by Irenaeus in A.D. 180. New Testament scholars H.C. Puech and B. Blatz, writing without knowledge of the new codex, believed that the Gospel of Judas would have been written at some time between A.D. 130-170 (p. 387).

What I find odd is that the two translations differ in the very first paragraph of the introduction itself!!!

oy veyyyyyyyyyyyyy

And it would be the paragraph that I need to clarify because it concerns the numbers 3 and 7.

This is the National Geographic translation of the first paragraph;

INTRO #1

“The secret account of the revelation that Jesus spoke in conversation with Judas Iscariot during a week three days before he celebrated Passover”

note the time line

7 = a week
3 = three days

The second translation suggests a slightly different time line.

INTRO #2

“The secret word of declaration by which Jesus spoke in conversation with Judas Iscariot, during eight days, three days before he celebrated Passover.”

8 not 7
3 remains the same
