The Apocalypse of Thomas is a work from the New Testament apocrypha, apparently composed originally in Greek.
It concerns the end of the world, and appears to be a rendering of the Apocalypse of John although written in a somewhat less enigmatic or mystical manner. The text was written in Greek and was either copied or translated in Latin in Italy or North Africa. It was widespread in North-western Europe: the Apocalypse was most likely accepted as canonical ‘in certain parts of Western Christendom in the ninth and tenth centuries’

IMPORTANT: All Scripture text has context and background. Scripture should never be read literally or in isolation. Always seek clarification from religious scholars and teachers. In general, Scripture adheres to four principles: (1) Literal Meaning - What the Scripture says (2) Historical Setting - The story events; how the Scripture was understood in its time (3) Grammar - The surrounding sentence and paragraph; textual context (4) Synthesis - A comparison with similar Scripture to give a better contextual understanding
