The Gospel of Thomas in the larger gnostic tradition

Dear Friends at the above scholarly list (and DJ Love),

        I am prsently trying to understand where I can find saying form the
gospel of Thomas in other gnostic writings. I understand from certain New
Testament scholars (e.g., Crossan) that the gospel of Thomas tradition
survived into a larger gnostic tradition much like the hypothetical Q source
(sayings material) survived in Matthew and Luke.

        Since I have the Nag HAmmadi library, can anyone give me any
suggestion on which gnostic gospels to read first to find Thomas sayings?

I appreciate this much!
