The Gospel of Thomas.
New Ways to Know The Words of The Master
By Rev. Daniel Chesbro with Rev. James Erickson
Findhorn Press $10.85 (Publication Date: December 1, 2012 )

The Gospel of Thomas is one of the earliest texts containing the teachings of Jesus and offers profound and inspiring insights into his sayings. The Gospel is attributed to Didymos Judas Thomas, a member of Jesus’ inner circle, who received his deeper teachings.

The original text of the gospel was discovered with the Nag Hammadi library in 1945, in Egypt, and this interpretation of the gospel brings Thomas’s message into today’s world and emerging consciousness. Through a unique combination of each of the 114 sayings of St. Thomas, this guide offers fresh perspectives into the teachings of Jesus and their relevance for today.

From ”Let him who seeks continue seeking until he finds” to “I have cast fire upon the world, and see, I am guarding it until it blazes,” this narrative links the intentions of the original text with modern day prophets such as P.M.H. Atwater and Steven Hawking, and the sparks behind the Arab Spring uprising and the Occupy Movement, for those searching for divinity in the current moment and climate.

Rev. Daniel Chesbro is an ordained minister in the Order of Mechizedek, a teacher, and lecturer. He trained at the Andover Newton Theological School and at the Crozer Seminary, and received a master’s in theology from Colgate Divinity School. He is head of A School for the Prophets, and former host of the television show, “The Open Door.” He lives in Conesus, NY.
Rev James Erickson has the gift of clairsentience and is a psychic and aura reader, as well as a healer. He was ordained into the Order of Melchizedek in 1993. He lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

NEW INFORMATION EMERGES ABOUT SECRET PRIESTHOOD – THE ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK

October 2010 – For years the Order of Melchizedek has been shrouded in mystery and information about this secret priesthood has been scarce. Now in answer to a growing number of questions and increasing awareness of its existence, Rev. Daniel Chesbro, the founder of the present day order, has written, in collaboration with long-time colleague and fellow priest Rev. James Erickson, the first ever book on the subject: The Order of Melchizedek: Love, Willing Service and Fulfilment (Findhorn Press, Winter 2010, $16.95.)

The book is intended to answer questions about the history of the priesthood, about Melchizedek and the teachings. According to Chesbro, Melchizedek was one of the incarnations of ‘The Christ’, who came to earth without a birth experience and took the form of an androgynous ‘spirit’ like being, rather than a ‘physical’ one. Chesbro reveals that the name of the order comes from Melchizedek, of the Old Testament, the “King of Salem” and “The Priest of the Most High God” who met with Abraham as he returned from his battles and gave him bread and wine, in a way that foreshadows the Holy Communion of Jesus. Historically, we discover that Melchizedek appears in many religious texts and faiths and is held as a beloved teacher and prophet.

However, Melchizedek and the Order has been in the shadows for over 4,000 years until, writes Chesbro, in 1986, he is ‘given’ information and guidance that “It is time to call the Priests.”

“Daniel Chesbro has written a blueprint of where we are today while providing a road map for the future… The book is recommended reading for those seeking hope, direction, and spiritual insight”
– Glenn Sanderfur, Director of Development Edgar Cayce organizations, and author of Lives of the Masters

Chesbro outlines the purpose of the Order, in its new form, its principles of healing and teaching as we emerge into the Age of Aquarius. The focus is on self-love, self-confidence, balance and the pursuit of one’s own High Spiritual Self.

Chesbro’s background as a scholar of Divinity informs each chapter. Evidently, there is much to learn about this mysterious Cosmic Christ and the philosophy surrounding good and evil, free will and accountability, dimensions, incarnation and reincarnation, and unconditional love. The concept of ‘the Law of One’ and returning Home surface throughout the book which in turn reflects a harmonious view of religion where one God can be worshiped in a variety of different ways.

Undoubtedly a gifted communicator, we learn in the book how Chesbro has grown this secret priesthood to over 17,000 across the world and that the Order of Melchizedek embodies much of what it stands for. The priesthood comprises people from every lifestyle imaginable who work in complete freedom to serve the human condition. There are no robes, no doctrine, no discrimination and no dogma, just unconditional acceptance. This is a celebration of the Cosmic Christ.

The book was created from transcribed interviews and edited and revised in places by Rev. Jim Erickson
