Page XI of the Legend of Thomas


To whom was the world created for: the Torah, Moses, Abraham, or the Messiah?
Perhaps, the answers may be found in the types and shadows? James the relationship between them James and Yeshua as Aaron had to Moses-Joshua.

  • Logion 12 The disciples said to Jesus, "We know that you will depart from us. Who is to be our leader?" Jesus said to them, "Wherever you are, you are to go to James the righteous, for whose sake heaven and earth came into being."
  • Matthew 18:1 At that time the disciples came to Jesus saying, "Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?"
  • Mark 9:34 But they were silent, for on the way they had argued with one another about who was the greatest.
  • Luke 9:46 Now an argument started among the disciples as to which of them might be the greatest.
  • John 1:3 All things were created by him, and apart from him not one thing was created that has been created.
  • Acts 1:11 and said, "Men of Galilee, why do you stand here looking up into the sky? This same Jesus who has been taken up from you into heaven will come back in the same way you saw him go into heaven."
  • 1 Corinthians 8:6 yet for us there is one God, the Father, from whom are all things and for whom we live, and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things and through whom we live.
  • Hebrews 2:10 For it was fitting for him, for whom and through whom all things exist, in bringing many sons to glory, to make the pioneer of their salvation perfect through sufferings.

Notes 11-12 Under the Pomegranate tree Thomas surprised Origami, "walk with me," for he had only seen Thomas leave from under the Pomegranate tree in the days the troubled spirit rushed him away.

Thomas stood scowling on the field at the South side gazing out toward the limits. Across the field Thomas walked, Origami followed, moment by moment; Thomas searched the field and whenever he found particular stones, he scooped the rocks and kept them for himself. Origami observed the shapes and the sizes of the stones Thomas kept, then both of them walked, kept in line Origami followed behind, and Thomas carried his rocks before him. Both had hands full of stones.

Nearby Origami sat; they sat under the Pomegranate tree. Thomas began to stack the rocks according to shape and size until the rocks were balanced by each other's side. There the stack of rocks equaled the height of Origami, and round the rocks, Thomas went around raking the ground by the branch of the Pomegranate tree. The ground was smoothed and cleaned. Then Thomas leaned back against the tree, in meditation he rested by the Pomegranate tree.

Origami observed the stacked rocks on the hill; the ground raked clean, then he asked Thomas, "what have you done?" 
Thomas' eyes never opened but he responded, "Origami, who will you be questioned by? Note 12 What hands shall be laid hold of? The rock you stand on the stack of balanced stones each of these rocks were handpicked on this high place. These rocks are beneath you, Origami." Note 13

Under the hazy sky and on the hill in the shade of the Pomegranate tree Origami pointed there, "how can I enter the temple, Thomas?"
Thomas replied, "by the stone found outside yourself. The temple other men build can stand without the cornerstone. Remember me, Origami."
And that was when the first tears of Origami's almond-shaped eyes appeared by the side of Thomas. The tear was formed by the eyes of Origami before they fell, then they had fallen upon the earth under the Pomegranate tree.
Thomas' last words to Origami, "this temple was made clean to please the Lord."
And his rocks scattered on the ground both of which were uncleaned yet cleaner than the hands of Origami.

Note 14 The continuation was soon to follow.... .

  • Note 11 Written 2021 in a tone of sarcasm. To ask the Father, "why?" And to receive through the language of the gods; a turn of events the builders err and were rejected by the cornerstone.
  • Note 12 The greatest assumption made by the church or perhaps the hopes were for men of God to fill the offices. The Covenant of Salt was forever.
  • Note 13 The law was written in the heart of the gentiles; however, the hearts of the gentiles the unregenerate heart (the false premise made of stone) was always unrighteous not only excusing sins but justifying them through the faculties of reason.
  • Note 14 Because the right contends for the innocence of others does not make the contentions of the right correct, the L-rd G-d was, is, and will always be the Judge; He puts down one and raises another!
