Summary

It is because of the Eastern tone of Thomas, the Gnostic theology embedded in Thomas, and the possible pre-Christian influence of the text that makes it so compatible with the philosophy of the Tao Te Ching, so as to make one a fascinating supplement to the other. Both advance inner and intuitive knowledge above all. Both allude to the way to acquire this knowledge through an unwavering search within oneself. Since the deeper meanings of both Thomas and the Tao Te Ching are both direct and indirect, it is hoped that each time they are studied some new insight and treasure can be taken from them.
