Meditating upon the "Gospel of the apostle Didymos Judas Thomas", with ignorance of mind but power of heart I don't find contraddictions nor any news with respect to what stated by the four "canonic Gospels"; the 114 sentences (or "loghia") of the apocryphal do not contribute to raise in me doubts or spiritual conflicts, but on the contrary they form a contour to the canonic context which, without harming my faith, stimulates my thirst for truth.

These are the secret sayings that the living Jesus spoke and Didymos Judas Thomas recorded.

1. And he said, "Whoever discovers the interpretation of these sayings will not taste death."

2. Jesus said, "Those who seek should not stop seeking until they find. When they find, they will be disturbed. When they are disturbed, they will marvel, and will reign over all."

3. Jesus said, "If your leaders say to you, 'Look, 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. Instead, the Kingdom is within and outside you. When you know yourselves, then you will be recognised, and you will understand that you are children of the living Father. But if you do not know yourselves, then you live in poverty, and you will be the poverty itself."

4. Jesus said, "The person old in days won't hesitate to ask a little seven-days-old child about the place of life, and that person will live. For many of the first will be the last, and will become a single one."

5. Jesus said, "Know what is in front of your face, and what is hidden from you will be revealed to you. For there is nothing hidden that will not be revealed."

6. His disciples asked him and said to him, "Do you want us to fast? How should we pray? Should we give to charity? What diet should we observe?"

6-b. Jesus said, "Don't lie, and don't do what you hate, because everything is revealed in heaven. After all, there is nothing hidden that will not be revealed, and there is nothing covered up that will remain undisclosed."

7. Jesus said, "Fortunate is the lion that will be eatten by human, so that the lion becomes human. And unfortunate is the human that will be eatten by lion, for the lion will still become human."

8. And he said, "The human is like a wise fisherman who threw his net into the sea and retracted it full of little fishes. Among them, the wise fisherman discovered a fine big fish. He threw all the little fishes back into the sea, and was able to choose easily the big one. Whoever here has two good ears, listen!"

9. Jesus said, "Look, the sower went out, took a hand full of seeds, and scattered them. Some fell on the road, and the birds came and gathered them. Others fell on rock, and they didn't root and didn't produce grain. Others fell on thorns, and the seeds were choked and worms ate them. And others fell on good soil, and produced a good crop that yielded sixty per measure and one hundred and twenty per measure."

10. Jesus said, "I have cast fire upon the world, and look, I'm taking care of it until it blazes."

11. Jesus said, "This heaven will pass away, and the one above it will pass away too. The dead are not alive, and the living will not die. During the days you ate what is dead, you made it come alive. When you are in the light, what will you do? One day you were one, and you became two. But when you become two, what will you do?"

12. The disciples said to Jesus, "We know that you are going to leave us. Who will be our leader?" Jesus said to them, "No matter where you are, you have to go to James the Just, for whose sake heaven and earth came into being."

13. Jesus said to his disciples, "Compare me to someone and tell me what I am like." Simon Peter said to him, "You are like a honest messenger." Matthew said to him, "You are like a wise philosopher." Thomas said to him, "Teacher, my mouth is utterly unable to say what you are like." Jesus said, "I am not your teacher. You have drunk, and have become drunk from the alive water that I have offered you." And he took him, and told him three sayings. When Thomas came back to his friends they asked him, "What did Jesus say to you?" Thomas said to them, "If I tell you one of the sayings he told me, you will pick up rocks and lapidate me, and the fire will come from the rocks and devour you."

14. Jesus said to them, "If you fast, you will bring sin upon yourselves, if you pray, you will be condemned, and if you give to charity, you will harm your spirits. When you go into a region and walk about in the countryside, if the people take you in, eat what they serve you and heal the sick among them. After all, what goes into your mouth will not defile you; it is what comes out of your mouth that will defile you."

15. Jesus said, "When you see one who was not born of woman, prostrate yourself and worship him. That is your Father."

16. Jesus said, "Perhaps people think that I have come to bring the peace upon the world. They do not know that I have come to bring the conflict upon the earth: fire, sword, war. For there will be five in a house: there'll be three against two and two against three, father against son and son against father, and they will be alone."

17. Jesus said, "I will give you what no eye has seen, no ear has heard, no hand has touched, what has not arisen in the human heart."

18. The disciples said to Jesus, "Tell us, how will our end come?"
Jesus said, " So you have found the beginning, that you are looking for the end? You see, the end will be where the beginning is. Blessed is the one who stands at the beginning: that he will know the end and will not taste death."

19. Jesus said, "Blessed is the one who was born before coming into being. If you become my disciples and pay attention to my words, these stones will obey you. For there are five trees in Paradise for you; they do not change, summer or winter, and their leaves do not fall. Whoever knows them will not taste death."

20. The disciples said to Jesus, "Tell us what Heaven's kingdom is like." He said to them, "It's like a mustard seed, the smallest of all seeds, but when it falls on prepared soil, it produces a big plant and becomes a shelter for birds of the sky."

21. Mary asked Jesus, "What are your disciples like?"
He said, "They are like little children living in a field that does not belong to them. When the owners of the field come, they say, 'Give us back our field.' And those take off their clothes in order to give it back to them, and they return them the field. For this reason I say, if the owners of a house know that a thief is coming, they will be on guard before he arrives and will not let him break into their property and steal their possessions. So, you also, be on guard against the world. Prepare yourselves with great strength, so the robbers won’t find any way to overwhelm you, for the misfortune you expect will come. Let there be someone among you who understands. When the crop was mature, he arrived quickly with a sack and harvested it. Whoever has two good ears, listen!"

22. Jesus saw some infants nursing. He said to his disciples, "These nursing infants are like those who enter the Kingdom." They said to him, "Then shall we enter the Kingdom as infants?"
Jesus said to them, "When you will do of two one, and when you will make the inside as the outside and the outside as
the inside, and the upper as the bottom, and when you will make of man and woman a single one, so that the man will not be man nor the woman be a woman, when you will have eyes in the place of the eyes, hands in the place of the hands, feet in the place of the feet, and images in the place of the images, then you will enter the Kingdom."

23. Jesus said, "I shall choose among you, one among a thousand and two among ten thousand, and they will be as a single one."

24. His disciples said, "Show us the place where you are, for we need to seek it." He said to them, "Whoever here has ears, listen! There is light within a person of light, and it shines on the whole world. If it does not shine, there is darkness."

25. Jesus said, "Love your friend like your own soul, protect him like the pupil of your eye."

26. Jesus said, "You look at the straw in your friend's eye, but you don't see the beam in your own eye. When you will remove the beam from your eye, then you will see well enough to remove the straw from your friend's eye."

27. "If you do not fast from the world, you will not find the Kingdom. If you do not observe the sabbath as a sabbath you will not see the Father."

28. Jesus said, "I took my place in the world, and I appeared to them in flesh and bones. I found them all drunk, and I did not find anybody thirsty. My soul suffered for the children of humankind, because they are blind in their hearts and do not see, for empty did they enter the world, and also empty they try to leave the world. But in the meantime, they are drunk. When they free themselves from the wine, then they will change their behaviour."

29. Jesus said, "If the flesh came into being because of the spirit, that is a marvel, but if spirit came into being because of the body, that is a marvel of marvels. Yet it surprises me how this great wealth is reduced in such poverty .

30. Jesus said, "Where there are three divinities, they are divine. Where there are two or one, I am with him."

31. Jesus said, "No prophet is welcome in his own district; the doctors don't treat those who know him."

32. Jesus said, "A city built on a high hill and, that has been fortified, cannot be seized, nor can it be hidden."

33. Jesus said, " Proclaim from your roofs to other ears as much as you will hear with your ear.
After all, no one turns on a lamp to put it under a basket, neither to put it in a hidden place. Rather, one puts it on a lampstand so that whoever comes and goes will see its light."

34. Jesus said, "If a blind person leads a blind person, both of them will fall into a ditch."

35. Jesus said, "No one can enter a strong person's house and take it by force without tying his hands first. Then, someone can subtract him his house."

36. Jesus said, "Do not be anxious from morning to evening and from evening to morning about what you are going to wear. “
37. His disciples said, "When will you appear to us and when will you come back to see us?"
Jesus said, "When you undress yourselves without being ashamed, and you take your clothes and put them under your feet like little children and destroy them, then you will see the Son of the living One and you will not be afraid."

38. Jesus said, "You have often desidered to listen these words that I tell you, and you didn't have anybody from whom to hear them. There will be days when you will seek me and you will not find me."

39. Jesus said, "The Pharisees and the scribes have taken the keys of knowledge and have hidden them. They have not entered nor have they allowed to enter to those who wanted to do so. As for you, be as sly as snakes and as simple as doves."

40. Jesus said, "A grapevine has been planted far away from the Father. Since it is not strong, it will be eradicated and will perish."

41. Jesus said, "Whoever has something in hand will receive more, and whoever has nothing will be deprived even of the little that he has."

42. Jesus said, "Be passer-bys."

43. His disciples said to him, "Who are you to tell us these things?" "You don't understand who I am from what I say to you. Instead, you have become like the Judeans, that love the tree but hate its fruits, or love the fruits but hate the tree."

44. Jesus said, "Whoever blasphemes against the Father will be forgiven, and whoever blasphemes against the Son will be forgiven, but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, neither on earth nor in heaven."

45. Jesus said, "Grapes are not harvested from thorn trees, nor are figs gathered from thistles, for they yield no fruit. The good persons produce good from how much they have stored up; bad ones produce evil from the evil store within their hearts, and say evil things. As they produce evil from the overflow of the heart."

46. Jesus said, "From Adam to John the Baptist, among those many who have been born of women, no one is greater than John the Baptist so that he should not have to lower the glance. But I’m telling you that whoever among you becomes a child will recognize the Kingdom and will become greater than John."

47. Jesus said, "A person cannot ride two horses or to bend two bows. And a slave cannot serve two masters, otherwise the slave will honor one and offend the other. Nobody drinks mature wine and immediately after wants to drink young wine. Young wine is not poured into old wineskins, otherwise it spoils. An old patch is not sewn onto a new garment, since it would tear."

48. Jesus said, "If two make peace with each other in a single house, they will say to the mountain, 'Move!' and it will move."

49. Jesus said, "Blessed are those who are alone and chosen, for they will find the Kingdom. For you have come from there, and there you will return."

50. Jesus said, "If they say to you, 'Where have you come from?' tell them, 'We have come from the light, from the place where the light came into being by itself, established itself, and appeared in their image.' If they say to you, 'Is it you?' say, 'We are its children, and we are the chosen of the living Father.' If they ask you, 'What is the evidence that the Father is in you?' tell them, 'It is the motion and the quiet.'"

51. His disciples said to him, "When will the dead rest, and when will come the new world?"
He said to them, "What you are waiting for has come, but you don't know it."

52. His disciples said to him, "Is circumcision useful or not?" He said to them, "If it were useful, their father would produce children already circumcised from their mother. Instead, the true circumcision in spirit, has become advantageous from every point of view."

53. His disciples said to him, "Twenty-four prophets have spoken in Israel, and they all spoke through you." He said to them, "You have omitted the living one in your presence, and have spoken only of the dead."

54. Jesus said, "Blessed be the poor, for his is the Heaven's Kingdom."

55. Jesus said, "He who does not hate his father and mother cannot be my disciple, and whoever does not hate brothers and sisters, and carry the cross as I do, will not be worthy of me."

56. Jesus said, "He who has come to know the world has discovered a carcass, and of whoever has discovered a carcass, the world is not worthy."

57 Jesus said, "The Father's kingdom is like a man who has some seed. During the night, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the good seed. The man did not want that the workers pull out the weeds, but said to them, 'No, otherwise in order to pull out the weeds you could end up tearing also the wheat.' For on the day of the harvest, there will be a lot of weeds, and will be pulled up and burned."

58. Jesus said, "Blessed be the person that has toiled and has found life."

59. Jesus said, "Look at the One who lives as long as you live, otherwise you might die and then try to see Him, but you wil not be able."

60. He saw a Samaritan carrying a lamb and going to Judea. He said to his disciples, "That person [...] of the lamb." They said to him, "So that he might kill it and eat it." He said to them, "He will not eat it while it is alive, but only after he has killed it and it has become a carcass." They said, "He can't do it otherwise." He said to them, "You too, seek for yourselves a place to rest, or you might become a carcass and be eaten."

61. Jesus said, "Two will lye down on a couch; one will die, the other will live." Salome said, "Who are you sir? You have climbed onto my couch and eaten from my table as if someone sent you."
Jesus said to her, "I am the one who comes from what is whole. I was given the things of my Father."
"I am your disciple."
"Therefore I tell you, if one is whole, he will be filled with light, but if one is divided, he will be filled with darkness."

62. Jesus said, "I reveal my mysteries to those who are worthy of them. That your left hand doesn’t know what makes the right one.

63 Jesus said, "There was a rich man who had a lot of money. He said, 'I shall invest my money so that I may sow, harvest and fill my storehouses with commodities, that I don’t miss anything.' These were the things he was thinking in his heart, but that very night he died. Who among you has ears, listen!"

64. Jesus said, "A man organized a reception. When he had prepared the dinner, he sent his slave to invite the guests.
The slave went to the first and said to that one, 'My master invites you.' That one said, 'There are some merchants that owe me some money, and they are coming to me tonight. I have to go to give him instructions. I beg him to excuse me, but I cannot come to supper.' The slave went to another and said to that one, 'My master has invited you.' That one said to the slave, 'I have bought a house, and I have to leave for a day. I won't have time for the supper.' The slave went to another and said to that one, 'My master invites you.' That one said to the slave, ‘One friend of mine gets married, and I have to prepare him the banquet. I cannot come. I beg him to excuse me if I cannot come.’ The slave went to another and said to that one, 'My master invites you.' That one said to the slave, 'I have bought an estate, and I am going to collect the lease. I cannot come, I beg him to excuse me.' The slave returned and said to the master, 'Those whom you invited to supper apologize but they cannot come.' The master said to the slave, 'Go out on the streets and bring in for supper whomever you find.' Buyers and merchants won’t enter the places of my Father."

65. He said, "A [...] man owned a vineyard and rented it to some farmers, so they could work it and surrender him the crop. He sent his servant to the farmers so they would deliver him the crop. They grabbed him, beat him, and almost killed him. Then the servant returned to his master. His master said, 'Perhaps he didn't know them.' He sent another servant, and the farmers beat that one as well. Then the master sent his son and said, ‘Perhaps toward my child they will show some respect.' Since the farmers knew that he was the heir of the vineyard, they grabbed and killed him. He who has ears, listen!"

66. Jesus said, "Show me the stone which the builders rejected: that is the keystone."

67. Jesus said, "Those that know everything, but are lacking in themselves, are utterly lacking."

68. Jesus said, " Blessed you, when you will be hated and persecuted; and there won’t be any place where you have been persecuted."

69. Jesus said, "Blessed be those that have been persecuted in the hearts: they are the ones who have truly come to know the Father. Blessed those who bear the hunger, so the stomach of the one in need will be filled."

70. Jesus said, " If you will express how much you have within you, what you have will save you. If you do not have it within you, what you do not have, will lose you."

71. Jesus said, "I will destroy this house, and no one will be able to build it again [...]."

72. A man said to him, "Tell my brothers to divide their possessions with me." He said to the man, "Sir, who made me a divider?" He turned to his disciples and said to them, "I'm not a divider, am I?"

73. Jesus said, "The crop is huge but the workers are few, so beg the harvester to send workers on the fields."

74. He said, "Lord, there are in many around the drinking trough, but there is nothing in the well."

75. Jesus said, " They crowd in front of the door, but it will be the solitary to enter the nuptial room."

76. Jesus said, "The Father's kingdom is as a merchant that received a load of merchandise and found a pearl. That merchant was aware of it; he sold the merchandise and held only the pearl. So, you too, seek the treasure that is everlasting, that is enduring, where no moth comes to gnaw and no worm destroys."

77. Jesus said, "I am the light that is within all things. I am everything: all comes from me, and in me all ends. Split a piece of wood; I am there. Lift the stone, and you will find me there."
78. Jesus said, "Why have you come out to the countryside? To see a cane shaken by the wind? And to see a person dressed in soft clothes, like the chiefs and the powerful ones? Those are dressed in soft clothes, and they cannot understand the truth."

79. A woman in the crowd said to him, "Blessed are the womb that conceived you and the breast that fed you." He said to her, "Blessed are those who have listened the word of the Father and have truly kept it. For there will be days when you will say, 'Blessed are the womb that has not conceived and the breast that has not nursed.'"

80. Jesus said, "Who has come to know the world has discovered a cadaver, and whoever has discovered a cadaver, the world is not worthy of him."

81. Jesus said, "Let one who has become wealthy, reign, and the one that has power, renounce it."

82. Jesus said, "Whoever is near me is near the fire, and whoever is far away from me, is far away from the Kingdom."

83. Jesus said, "Images are visible to human beings, but the light within them is hidden in the image of the Father's light. He will reveal himself, but his image is hidden by his light."

84. Jesus said, " When you see what it resembles you, you are content. But when you will see the images that came into being before you and that don't die neither they become visible

85. Jesus said, "Adam came from a great power and a great wealth, but he was not worthy of you. For if he had been worthy, he would not have known death."

87. Jesus said, "How wretched is the body that depends on a body, and how wretched is the soul that depends on these two."

88. Jesus said, "The messengers and the prophets will come to you and give you what it belongs to you. You, on your behalf, give them what you have, and say to yourselves, 'When will they come to take what belongs to them?'"

89. Jesus said, "Why do you rinse the outside of the cup? Don't you understand that the one who made the inside, is also the one who made the outside?"

90. Jesus said, "Come to me, for my yoke is comfortable and my control is gentle, and you will find your peace."

91. They said to him, "Tell us who you are so that we can believe in you." He said to them, "You examine the appearance of sky and earth, but you have not come to understand the one who is in front of you, and you do not know how to interpret the present moment."

92. Jesus said, "Seek and you will find. In the past, however, I did not tell you the things about which you asked me then. Now I am willing to tell them, but you are not asking them anymore."

93. "Do not give sacred thing to dogs, for they might throw them into the manure. Don't throw pearls to pigs, or they might [...]."

94. Jesus said, "The one who seeks will find, and the one who knocks will enter."

95. Jesus said, "If you have money, don't lend it at interest. Rather, give it to someone from whom you won't get it back."

96. Jesus said, "The Father's Kingdom is like a woman. She took a little leaven, hid it in dough, and made with it big loaves of bread. Anyone with two ears, listen!"

97. Jesus said, "The Kingdom is like a woman who was carrying a jar full of flour. While she was walking along a long street, the handle of the jar broke and the flour spread behind her, along the street. She didn't know it; she hadn't noticed anything. When she reached her house, she put the jar down and discovered that it was empty."

98. Jesus said, "The Father's Kingdom is like a person who wanted to kill someone powerful. Before going out, he drew out his sword and inserted it into the wall to find out whether his hand could run the sword throught it. Then he killed the powerful man."

99. The disciples told him, "Your brothers and your mother are standing outside." He said to them, "My brothers and my mother are those who make my Father’s will. They are those who will enter my Father's Kingdom."

102. Jesus said, "Damn the Pharisees! They are like a dog sleeping in the manger: the dog doesn’t eat nor lets the cattle eat."

103. Jesus said, "Blessed be those that know from where the rebels will attack. They can get organized, pick up the imperial resources, and be prepared before the rebels arrive."

104. They said to Jesus, "Come, today we pray, and we fast." Jesus said, "What sin have I committed, or of which impurity have I gotten soiled? Rather, when the groom leaves the nuptial room, then let people fast and pray."

106. Jesus said, "Who knows the father and the mother will be called the child of a prostitute."

107. Jesus said, "The Kingdom is like a shepherd who had a hundred sheep. One of them, the biggest, got lost. He left the other ninety-nine and looked for the one until he found it. After having toiled, he said to the sheep, 'Is you the one I love, more than the other ninety-nine.'"

108. Jesus said, "Who drinks from my mouth will become like me; I myself, shall become that person, and the hidden things will be revealed to him."

109. Jesus said, "The Father's kingdom is like a person who had a treasure hidden in his field but did not know it. And when he died he left it to his son. The son did not know about it either. He became the owner of the field and sold it. The buyer went ploughing, discovered the treasure, and began to lend money at interest to whomever he wished."

110. Jesus said, "Let the one that has found the world, and has become wealthy, renounce the world."

111. Jesus said, "The heavens and the earth will open in your presence, and whoever is alive for the living one will not see death." Does not say Jesus, "The world is not worthy of those that have found themselves "?

112. Jesus said, "Damn the flesh that depends on the soul. Damn the soul that depends on the flesh."

113. His disciples asked him, "When will the Kingdom come?"

114. Simon Peter said to Him, "Let Mary leave us, as the women are not worthy of the life." Jesus said: "I shall lead her myself in order to make her male, so that she may also become a living spirit resembling you, males. For every woman that makes herself male will enter the Kingdom of Heaven."
