4. "The contrast between the biblical and Gnostic Jesus is stark when the gospels of John and Thomas are compared. John says that we can experience God only through the divine light embodied in Jesus, said Princeton religion professor Elaine Pagels. But certain passages in Thomas’ gospel draw a quite different conclusion: that the divine light Jesus embodied is shared by humanity, since we are all made in the image of God.3 While John stresses the resurrection as evidence of Jesus’ divinity, Gnostic writers tend to view . . . the resurrection and other elements of the Jesus story not as literal, historical events but as symbolic keys to a ‘higher’ understanding, said religion writer Jay Tolson.4"
