The Imamat of James: Brother of Jesus, Successor of Christ & Leader of Early Christianity

Ismaili Gnosis

Every Prophet has had a Legatee (wasi) in whom the Light of the Imamate has been firmly set and established with surety, and to whom the knowledge of prophecy has been temporarily entrusted through trusteeship.

Nasir al-Din al-Tusi, (The Paradise of Submission, 136)

The disciples said to Jesus, ‘We know you will leave us. Who is going to be our leader then?’ Jesus said to them, ‘No matter where you go, you are to go to James the Just, for whose sake heaven and earth came into being.’

Gospel of Thomas Saying 12
