The 15th teaching in the Gospel According to Thomas
Monday, June 4, 2018
“Jesus said, ‘When you see one who was not born of woman, prostrate yourselves on your faces and worship him. That one is your father.’" Jesus always refers to God as "father," which is understandable considering the times were dominated by a patriarchal society. However, in this teaching he gives another perspective. There are many interesting aspects to this teaching, and some of it is almost contradictory to what humankind has been taught. From that perspective, this is a fascinating teaching to examine and ponder.
