In "We Have Come From The Light" Gary W. Hudson brings forth a new and deeper understanding of the relationship between The Gospel of Thomas and the first century spiritual wisdom of Philo Judaeus and the living essence which guides us from within. Hudson presents The Gospel of Thomas logia with correlated quotes from the first century spiritual wisdom of Philo Judaeus of Alexandria followed by a deeply considered interpretation based on his personal recognition of the unitive Christ. The reader is given the opportunity to compare the secret sayings of Thomas with the spiritual allegory of Philo in the light of Hudson's insightful commentary. This ground breaking work presents The Gospel of Thomas as an introductory teaching on awakening to the living essence of God-the Christ within. To that end Hudson also provides instruction on the secret teaching which he believes is at the heart of The Gospel of Thomas and Philonic wisdom-the contemplative practice of the Inner Light.
