I would like to know what people think of this document. Does it contradict the traditional message of Christianity? Does it extend it?

Here's a vid where a guy says the sayings, about 45 minutes. [www.youtube.com]

Here's a text link to the 100ish verses - [www.biblicalarchaeology.org]

Here's a brief overview of the Book of Thomas:

discovered near Nag Hammadi, Egypt, in December 1945 among a group of books known as the Nag Hammadi library. Scholars speculate that the works were buried in response to a letter from Bishop Athanasius declaring a strict canon of Christian scripture.

The Coptic-language text, the second of seven contained in what modern-day scholars have designated as Codex II, is composed of 114 sayings attributed to Jesus.Almost half of these sayings resemble those found in the Canonical Gospels, while it is speculated that the other sayings were added from Gnostic tradition. Its place of origin may have been Syria, where Thomasine traditions were strong.
