The Young Messiah – Considering the Source

This morning I was able to actually listen to The Infancy Gospel of Thomas, read by James White and also find the translated text online. Here are the links.

Here is the YouTube of the reading by James White. It takes up about the first 30 minutes of the video.

Here is the link to one translation, however it doesn’t include Chapters 16-19.

Here is a link to a translation of all Chapters.

No spoilers from me. If you have read your Bible, and know what it actually says about the life of the young Jesus, you will easily recognize the true and the legend. If you know more of the bible, you might also recognize other actual biblical accounts that just might have been ‘adapted’ to a young Jesus. that’s all I’ll say.

Feel free to reblog this anywhere and everywhere.

  1. Since there are only a few verses about a young Jesus, a movie of any kind would have to take great liberties to fill an hour and one half. I’m guessing the movie includes way more that the story we have of him staying behind to amaze learned men much older than he. And that’s all we have. I know all there is that God wanted me to know about the Young Messiah so I’ll not have to see any movie.
