"...as a result of"
Who was responsible for The Gospel of Thomas being withheld?

Possibly due to editing, as a result of the Council of Nicaea in 325.

A great resource is "Asimov's Guide to the Bible."
Should come up on a search of google or your preferred search engine. Comes in a part 1 and a part 2.
Very interesting reading and quite an easy read.

I know there are debates about whether or not The Gospel are real, who they were written by, and whether or not they were edited.
My question is why is there no Sermon or Lord's Prayer in Mark or John? These are two things which are huge to Jesus's Teaching.
If John wrote that Jesus is "I AM", Image of The Invisible God, who is Love and sacrificed himself, why not include the Loving Teachings of The Sermon?
Mark paints Jesus as a servant, so many miracles of Compassion and Healing, wouldn't The Sermon be great to have in there also?
I memorized some of The Sayings of Christ such as,
"Blessed Are The Peacemakers For They Shall Be Called The Children of God"
They have really changed my life for the better and inspired me with Love.
