A well ordered and carefully colated translation.
on 26 September 2001
The Gospel According to Thomas is controversial. Marvin Meyer has essentially declined to enter the controversy. Rather he offers a simple translation in the order in which each of the original two scripts appeared. The Greek script is the earlier, but also the least clear and least complete. The author has paid a great deal of attention to possible errors in previous translations and, here and there, has suggested possible words for fragmentary papyrus.
Altogether a sound professional work.
