    Debates about the Gospel of Thomas and other “extracanonical books” (ancient writings that did not make it into the Bible) have come into vogue in recent years. The majority of New Testament scholars rightly doubts that the Gospel of Thomas offers much by way of new or unique insight into the real, historical Jesus of Nazareth. The Gospel of St. Thomas is considered "Gnostic" in origin and viewpoint by many fundamental Christians, and is possibly the reason why the book was kept from the original canon of the Holy Bible (if the text was even known by early Christian followers at all). Generally, Gnostics hold that salvation of the soul comes from a quasi-intuitive.

    The Gospel of Thomas also suggests that Jesus is aware of, and criticizing the views of the Kingdom of God as a time or a place that appear in the other gospels. Thomas S. Kidd is the Vardaman distinguished professor of history at Baylor University and the author of many books, including Who Is an Evangelical?A History of a Movement in Crisis (Yale, ); Benjamin Franklin: The Religious Life of a Founding Father (Yale, ); Baptists in America: A History with Barry Hankins (Oxford, ); George Whitefield: America’s Spiritual Founding Father.

      The Secret Gospels by Marvin Meyer is a valuable series of essays addressed to those familiar and interested in the apocryphal texts of the Gospel of Thomas and the to-date only fragmentary evidence of the Secret Gospel of Mark/5. Books like the Gospel of Thomas, Gospel of Judas and The Coptic Gospel of the Egyptians were written not in the first century (like Matthew, Mark, Luke and John), but were composed in later centuries. The Gnostic teachings which permeate their gospels do not represent a Jewish worldview that Jesus would have had, but a Greek worldview which.
