There is a Gnostic writing which contains only a letter Jesus wrote to his Mother. Virtually nobody accepts the document as being legitimate. I just thought I would put it out there.

I tried finding it, but I do not know where I put it in my computer. Maybe it is in some backup.

Yes you are correct
When you look at all the Great Master's there are very few who actually used a Pen/Pencil to capture their Teachings, I would imagine they didn't have the time nor inclination to spend time on such mundane Earthly tasks.....

My sense is that they were not inclined to spend time writing, as you suggested.

Your point is well-taken.
