ÂÂÂ Here is a link for the Spanish Record of Didymus Judas ThomasÂÂin South AmericaÂÂcenturies ago: 


ÂAn Account of the Antiquities of Peru 



Also there is Kenneth Slyvan Guthries 1904 speial edition by Theosophical Publishing of "The Second Book of Acts" which has The Blessed Mother Marys Narraitive of her past lives and the predictions of the future lives of the Apostles and her doctrine about reincarnation. It is listed on Google Books by title and also under Kenneth Slyvan Guthrie. I have two copies of the work that were furnished by: 

Clarion Chandler ( I don't know if this i s current any longer ) I don't recall the price I purchsed them in the last century. Â Â 

P.O. Box 1788 

Cave Junction, Or., 97503 

Tel: 1-503- 592- 6186 

The only other place that I know you can order this from currently is the Ashtar Home pages. The work may be a relic of the Followes of The Prophet Mani - the Manichaeans. It is a very interesting read. 

There is also the trdition of the Church of St. Thomas founded by the same in south India, as well as I think in Bactria. 

G. R. S. Mead wrote upon the Gnostics and one of his works was the book "Simon Magus" in which Simon from a distance on a hill watches another who is cruxified in his stead alluding to a "Twin" and laughs at the ignorance of the cruxifiers. 

There are yet egnigma's that persist in spite of the best efforts of the church to exterminate certain traditions. Another object of interest are the Mandaeans the Nazoreans of SouthernÂIraq. They possess the Book of Yaya (John (the Baptist)Âwho was the Elder of the Mandaeans at the alledged time of Jesus. Anbd they also a book titled "The Secret Adam" which seems a corralote to "The Son of Man" of the New Testament. 

Bruce McDonalds Book seems to also echoe others in similar manner such as Wynn Free in his Elohim, RA, Collective soul Intelligences and several others since modern times of the 60's - 90's (Ramtha, Seth Speaks,, Ashtar, ). 

I thank you for yout post I am reading and collecting the Bruce McDonald online sites and enjoying the contents which are worth the inspection, Bruce's explanation of his overseer direction has meaning to me. Bruces disctinction between the Apostle Thomas and Didymus Judes Thomas is sensible.ÂSend more if you have it.

"Doubting Thomas" Never Doubted Because 

He Never Existed!!! 

Wikipedia tells us: 


Saint Thomas the Apostle, also called Doubting Thomas, or Didymus, was one of 

the Twelve Apostles of Jesus. He is perhaps best known for disbelieving Jesus' 

Resurrection when first told of it, then proclaiming "My Lord and my God" on 

seeing Jesus....He was perhaps the only Apostle who went outside the Roman 

Empire to preach the Gospel. He also crossed the largest area, which includes 

Persia, India and China....Andrea del Verrocchio's sculpture showing the 

incredulity of St. Thomas. In Thomas' best known appearance in the New 

Testament, John 20:24-29, he doubts the resurrection of Jesus and demands to 

touch Jesus' wounds before being convinced. Caravaggio's painting, The 

Incredulity of Saint Thomas (illustration above), depicts this scene. This story 

is the origin of the term Doubting Thomas. After seeing Jesus alive (the Bible 

never states whether Thomas actually touched Christ's wounds), Thomas professed 

his faith in Jesus, exclaiming "My Lord and my God!"; on this account he is also 

called Thomas the Believer. 


See this beautiful painting at: \ 


Based on what C.W. Leadbeater wrote about the Apostles, this scene in the New 

Testament never happened because Thomas never existed.....
