The Gospel of Thomas Resource Center
This is a resource center for independent research related to the Gospel of Thomas.
Featuring the Internet's first complete Coptic/English translation and Concordance.



"There is a substantial and growing body of evidence that Gos. Thom. is not what it appears to be."
... M.W. Grondin, Sep, 2019

The Hidden Structure of the Coptic Prologue (11-10-9-3-9-10-11)

(A letter-count-based chiastic structure of a complexity presumably rare when unintended)

Coptic ms. counts showing precision design and careful inscription

105 occurrences of the nomina sacra IC/IHC
210 (Greek numeric value of 'IC')
1050 (Greek numeric value of 'Thomas')
500 occurrences of Copto-Greek words and names
2400 letters in those occurrences
16800 letters in main body of text sans prologue (=80*210, 7*2400)
(Proof that the Coptic text of Thomas is NOT the product of ineptitude!)
(The chance of 3 random numbers all being divisible by 100 is 1 in a million.)


Formerly called "The Codex II Student Resource Center" (C2SRC), this is
a resource center for independent research related to Nag Hammadi Codex II.
Featuring the Web's first complete Coptic/English translation of the Gospel of Thomas.
