These are the secret sayings [Spiritual message] which the living Jesus spoke and which Didymos [spirit of "twin duality"] Judas [deceiving nature of the Word, or the gravity that impels the carnal mind to believe in the letter] Thomas [joined or conjoined - doubled] wrote down .

1

And He [the Word] said, "Whoever finds the interpretation of these sayings will not experience death [letter that killeth, the law - image]."

2

Jesus [the "good Word"] said, "Let him who seeks continue seeking [in scripture] until he finds . When he finds, he will become troubled. When he becomes troubled, he will be astonished, and he will rule over the All [when one "finds" Christ or the truth of the Word, there is a renewing of the mind, it is awesomely astonishing and somewhat troubling at first, then all things become new and you have control over the knowledge or "earth" of your own mind]."

3

Jesus said, "If those who lead you say, 'See, the Kingdom is in the sky,' then the birds of the sky will precede you. If they say to you, 'It is in the sea,' then the fish will precede you. Rather, the Kingdom is inside of you, and it is outside of you [macro - micro. See; Lynne McTaggart's "The Field" ]. When you come to know yourselves, then you will become known, and you will realize that it is you who are the sons of the living Father [the mind of Christ]. But if you will not know yourselves [that you are spirit], you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty [carnal-minded]."

4

Jesus said, "The man old in days [tradition] will not hesitate to ask a small child seven days old [anyone with Spiritual understanding] about the place of life, and he will live. For many who are first will become last, and they will become one and the same."

5

Jesus said, "Recognize what is in your sight [by looking at the things that are made - Romans 1:20], and that which is hidden from you [the spiritual] will become plain to you. For there is nothing hidden which will not become manifest."

6

His disciples questioned Him and said to Him, "Do you want us to fast [not eat of the letter]? How shall we pray [inquire]? Shall we give alms? What diet shall we observe [or how shall we think]?"

Jesus said, "Do not tell lies [Romans, 3:7, or teach scriptures carnally], and do not do what you hate [assumptions], for all things are plain in the sight of Heaven. For nothing hidden will not become manifest, and nothing covered will remain without being uncovered [or you will not be able to comprehend it Spiritually]."

7

Jesus said, "Blessed is the lion [the "devil" is referred to as a roaring lion, i.e. condemnation, scorn, hate etc.] which becomes man when consumed by man; and cursed is the man [carnal-mind] whom the lion consumes, and the lion becomes man [the carnal teacher]."

8

And He said, "The Kingdom is like a wise fisherman who cast his net into the sea and drew it up from the sea full of small fish. Among them the wise fisherman found a fine large fish. He threw all the small fish back into the sea and chose the large fish [that which entails the larger picture, and not several little ones. This is cousin to the parable, "Gag at a gnat and swallow a camel"] without difficulty. Whoever has ears to hear, let him hear."

9

Jesus said, "Now the sower went out, took a handful (of seeds), and scattered them. Some fell on the road; the birds came and gathered them up. Others fell on the rock, did not take rood in the soil, and did not produce ears. And others fell on thorns; they choked the seed(s) and worms ate them. And others fell on the good soil and produced good fruit: it bore sixty per measure and a hundred and twenty per measure [soil and earth represent knowledge where the seed is planted] ."

10

Jesus said, "I have cast fire upon the world [controversy - "Think not that I am come to bring peace but....division"], and see, I am guarding it until it blazes [Matthew, 10:34-36. now]."

11

Jesus said, "This heaven [carnal teaching] will pass away, and the one above it [the literal view] will pass away. The dead [carnal] are not alive, and the living [the Christ-mind] will not die. In the days when you consumed what is dead [the literal interpretation], you made it what is alive [or believed it to be truth and gave it life by believing in it]. When you come to dwell in the light, what will you do [once you see it was the lie]? On the day when you were one [saw no contradiction] you became two [divided]. But when you become two [confused], what will you do?"

12

The disciples said to Jesus, "We know that You will depart from us. Who is to be our leader?" Jesus said to them, "Wherever you are, you are to go to James the righteous [pure in heart], for whose sake heaven and earth came into being." [James 'the righteous' whom is presented as Jesus' 'brother,' represents any and all 'righteous,' individualy or collectively, wherever and whenever they exist. Example in scripture is: Luke 8: 21; "....My mother and my brethren are those which hear the word of God and do it.' It is the 'spirit of righteousness' that is His brother, and the name given to it is called 'James.']

13

Jesus said to His disciples, "Compare me to someone and tell Me whom I am like." Simon Peter said to Him, "You are like a righteous angel." Matthew said to Him, "You are like a wise philosopher." Thomas said to Him, "Master, my mouth is wholly incapable of saying whom You are like." Jesus said, "I am not your master. Because you [Thomas] have drunk, you have become intoxicated by the bubbling spring which I have measured out [the law]." And He took him and with-drew and told him three things [I am the "Father" the "God" and the "Son"]. When Thomas returned to his companions, they asked him, "What did Jesus say to you?" Thomas said to them, "If I tell you one of the things which he told me, you will pick up stones [carnal Scriptures] and throw them at me; a fire [the truth - for our God is a consuming fire] will come out of the stones [scripture] and burn you up [or destroy your carnal concepts]."

14

Jesus said to them, "If you fast [don't search and study], you will give rise to sin [traditional teachings - the law] for yourselves; and [then] if you pray, you will be condemned; and if you give alms, you will do harm to your spirits. When you go into any land [earth - doctrine - religion etc.] and walk about in the districts, if they receive you, eat what they will set before you, and heal the sick [confused] among them [with the truth]. For what goes into your mouth [the letter-their teachings] will not defile you, but that which issues from your mouth - it is that which will defile you [in other words when you encounter the carnal-minded, listen to what they have to say by "agreeing with the adversary while in the way," but on the other hand, return their teachings (food) with Spiritual understanding so that they will have nothing evil to say about you]."

15

Jesus said, "When you see one who was not born of woman [traditional doctrines of religion i.e. Babylon], prostrate yourselves on your faces [humble yourselves] and worship him. That one is your Father [the Spiritual revelation of understanding]."

16

Jesus said, "Men think, perhaps, that it is peace which I have come to cast upon the world. They do not know that it is dissension which I have come to cast upon the earth [carnal knowledge]: fire, sword, and war [because of the appearent contradictions]. For there will be five in a house: three will be against two, and two against three, the father against the son, and the son against the father. And they will stand solitary [stubborn, high-minded and unreasonable]."

17

Jesus said, "I shall give you what no eye has seen and what no ear has heard and what no hand [traditional teaching] has touched and what has never occurred to the human mind [or carnal-mind]."

18

The disciples said to Jesus, "Tell us how our end will be." Jesus said, "Have you discovered, then, the beginning, that you look for the end? For where the beginning is, there will the end be [God said He has declared the end from the beginning]. Blessed is he who will take his place in the beginning [the end and the beginning is truth. "I am the first and the last"]; he will know the end and will not experience death [or the lie]."

19

Jesus said, "Blessed is he who came into being [or knew the truth] before he came into being [carnally, or fell away from God]. If you become My disciples and listen to My [Spiritual] words, these stones [carnal Scriptures] will minister to you. For there are five trees [the "five smooth stones for David; the five wise virgins with oil in their lamps; which represents the strand of truth that holds the literal interpretation of Scriptures together - and believable to the carnal-mind] for you in Paradise which remain undisturbed summer and winter and whose leaves do not fall [or, the un-changeable truth]. Whoever becomes acquainted with them will not experience death."

20

The disciples said to Jesus, "Tell us what the Kingdom of Heaven is like." He said to them, "It is like a mustard seed, the smallest of all seeds. But when it falls on tilled soil, it produces a great plant [or, a little truth goes a long way. A little candel dispells a lot of darkness] and becomes a shelter for birds of the sky [a spiritual place for your thoughts to rest]."

21

Mary said to Jesus, "Whom are Your disciples like?" He said, "They are like children [inquisitive - curious] who have settled in a field which is not theirs [a place where others have sown the carnal seed]. When the owners of the field come, they will say, 'Let us have back our field.' They (will) undress [remove what they learned] in their presence in order to let them have back their field and give it back to them. Therefore I say to you, if the owner of a house knows that the thief is coming, he will begin his vigil before he comes and will not let him into his house of his domain to carry away his goods [or if you know the carnal teachings are trying to get you to believe the Scriptures carnally, you then will strengthen your Spiritual understanding]. You, then, be on your guard against the world [of carnal teachings]. Arm yourselves with great strength [there again - Spiritual truths] lest the robbers find a way to come to you, for the difficulty which you expect will (surely) materialize. Let there be among you a man [mind] of understanding. When the grain ripened, he came quickly with his sickle in his hand [ministry] and reaped it. Whoever has [Spiritual] ears to hear, let him hear."

22

Jesus saw infants being suckled. He said to His disciples, "These infants [in Christ, hunger and thirst after righteousness] being suckled are like those who enter the Kingdom." They said to Him, "Shall we then, as children, enter the Kingdom?" Jesus said to them, "When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female; and when you fashion eyes in the place of an eye, and a hand in place of a hand, and a foot in place of a foot, and a likeness in place of a likeness [by looking at the things that are made]; then will you enter (the Kingdom) ["There is neither bond nor free, Greek nor Jew, male nor female," for all are one in Christ Jesus" or the Living Word]."

23

Jesus said, "I shall choose you, one out of a thousand, and two out of ten thousand, and they shall stand as a single one [many members in particular making up one body]."

24

His disciples said to Him, "Show us the place where You are, since it is necessary for us to seek it." He said to them, "Whoever has ears, let him hear. There is light within a man of light, and he (or "it") lights up the whole world. If he (or "it") does not shine, he (or "it") is darkness [he or "it" has to be resurrected from darkness or death first, before "it" he can shine]."

25

Jesus said, "Love your brother like your soul, guard him [your soul] like the pupil of your eye [understanding]."

26

Jesus said, "You see the mote [misunderstanding] in your brothers eye, but you do not see the beam [great misunderstanding, or lack of Christ] in your own eye. When you cast the beam [carnal understanding] out of your own eye, then you will see clearly to cast the mote from your brother's eye [in other words, when you condemn others, you have greatly condemned yourself]."

27

Jesus said, "If you do not fast as regards the world [do not eat "swines flesh" or the letter], you will not find the Kingdom. If you do not observe the Sabbath as a Sabbath, you will not see the Father [or, if you do not know the Scriptures Spiritually, you will not understand "the Word," the Father]."

28

Jesus said, "I took my place in the midst of the world, and I appeared to them in the flesh [in the likeness of 'sinful' flesh]. I found all of them intoxicated; I found none of them thirsty. And My soul became afflicted for the sons of men, because they are blind in their hearts and do not have sight; for empty they came into the world, and empty too they seek to leave the world. But for the moment they are intoxicated. When they shake off their wine, then they will repent [change]."

29

Jesus said, "If the flesh [or the law] came into being because of spirit [or Spiritual understanding], it is a wonder. But if spirit [or Spiritual understanding] came into being because of the body [law], it is a wonder of wonders. Indeed, I am amazed at how this great wealth has made its home in this poverty."

30

Jesus said, "Where there are three gods [scriptural concepts], they are gods. Where there are two [carnal and Spiritual] or one [the truth], I am with him [says understanding, or Christ]."

31

Jesus said, "No prophet is accepted in his own village; no physician heals those who know him."

32

Jesus said, "A city being built on a high mountain and fortified cannot fall, nor can it be hidden."

33

Jesus said, "Preach from your housetops that which you will hear in your ear {(and) in the other ear} [explain how the Scriptures has two-sides to them - the two edged Sword]. For no one lights a lamp [or finds Spiritual understanding] and puts it under a bushel [or keeps quiet about it], nor does he put it in a hidden place [make it confusing], but rather he sets it on a lamp stand so that everyone who enters [or questions] and leaves will see its light [or understand]."

34

Jesus said, "If a blind man [carnal-mind] leads a blind man, they will both fall into a pit [more confusion]."

35

Jesus said, "It is not possible for anyone to enter the house of a strong man and take it by force unless he binds his hands [thoughts]; then he will (be able to) ransack his house [or confuse his mind, which is the nature of the "letter." Like he said; I came to bring confusion - and, He is the Word]."

36

Jesus said, "Do not be concerned from morning until evening and from evening until morning about what you will wear [or put on Spiritually; that is, when you search and find confusion, and when you search and receive revelations]."

37

His disciples said, "When will You become revealed [in the Word] to us and when shall we see You?" Jesus said, "When you disrobe [remove your thoughts] without being ashamed [confounded] and take up your garments [ideas] and place them under your feet [faith] like little children and tread on them, then (will you see) the Son of the Living One, and you will not be afraid [because there's no confusion] "

38

Jesus said, "Many times have you desired to hear these words which I am saying to you, and you have no one else to hear them from. There will be days when you look for Me and will not find Me [because revelations are; "here a little," and there a little"]."

39

Jesus said, "The Pharisees and the scribes have taken the keys of Knowledge and hidden them [by teaching the Word carnally without the Spiritual interpretation]. They themselves have not entered [or seen Spiritually], nor have they allowed to enter those who wish to. You, however, be as wise as serpents [know the law] and as innocent as doves [by teaching it spiritually]."

40

Jesus said, "A grapevine [for wine] has been planted [false teachings] outside of the Father [or true Scriptures], but being unsound, it will be pulled up by its roots and destroyed [when the truth appears to you]."

41

Jesus said, "Whoever has in his hand [or has Spiritual knowledge] will receive more, and whoever has nothing will be deprived of even the little he has [or thought he had]."

42

Jesus said, "Become passers-by [of the carnal thought]."

43

His disciples said to him, "Who are You, that You should say these things to us?" Jesus said to them: "You do not realize who I am from what I say to you, but you have become like the Jews [the righteous that have taken the Scriptures literally,] for they (either) love the tree [the law] and hate its fruit [which is contention] or love the fruit [contention] and hate the tree [knowledge, i.e., "ever learning but never coming to the knowledge of the truth."]."

44

Jesus said, "Whoever blasphemes against the Father [the Word or law] will be forgiven [because of confusion], and whoever blasphemes against the Son [image of the good] will be forgiven, but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit [spiritual understanding] will not be forgiven either on earth or in heaven [because they can't see Spiritually]."

45

Jesus said, "Grapes are not harvested from thorns, nor are figs gathered from thistles, for they do not produce fruit. A good man brings forth good from his storehouse; an evil man brings forth evil things from his evil storehouse, which is in his heart, and says evil things [teaching the letter - evil]. For out of the abundance of the heart he brings forth evil things."

46

Jesus said, "Among those born of women [traditional religion], from Adam until John the Baptist, there is no one greater than John the Baptist [but the least in the kingdom of God is greater than John. Matthew 11:11] that his eyes should not be lowered (before him) [John]. Yet I have said whichever one of you comes to be a child will be acquainted with the Kingdom and will become greater than John [for all the prophets and the law prophesied until John]."

47

Jesus said, "It is impossible for a man to mount two horses or to stretch two bows. And it is impossible for a servant to serve two masters; otherwise he will honor the one and treat the other contemptuously. No man drinks old wine [tradition] and immediately desires to drink new wine [the truth]. And new wine is not put into old wineskins, lest they burst; nor is old wine put into a new wineskin, lest it spoil it. An old patch is not sewn onto a new garment, because a tear would result."

48

Jesus said, "If two [our mind - divided] make peace with each other in this one house [the mind], they will say to the mountain [the problem], 'Move Away,' and it will move away."

49

Jesus said, "Blessed are the solitary and elect, for you will find the Kingdom. For you are from it, and to it you will return."

50

Jesus said, "If they [the carnal] say to you, 'Where did you come from [or whence your understanding]?' say to them, 'We came from the light, the place where the light came into being on its own accord and established (itself) and became manifest through their image [or by revelation of the "image"].' If they say to you, 'Is it you?', say, 'We are its [the truths] children, we are the elect of the Living Father [Word].' If they ask you, 'What is the sign of your father in you?,' say to them, 'It is a movement and a rest' [which is a Spiritual peace that surpasses all understanding]."

51

His disciples said to Him, "When will the repose [rest - ceasing] of the dead come about, and when will the new world come?" He said to them, "What you look forward to has already come [it is a two edged Sword and the truth has been in it all along] , but you do not recognize it ."

52

His disciples said to Him, "Twenty-four prophets spoke in Israel, and all of them spoke in You [the Word]." He said to them, "You have omitted the one living in your presence and have spoken (only) of the dead [the letter]."

53

His disciples said to Him, "Is circumcision beneficial or not?" He said to them, "If it were beneficial, their father would beget them already circumcised from their mother [or the truth would have removed or cut away the "flesh," lie, or image when the Scriptures were first believed]. Rather, the true circumcision in spirit has become completely profitable [by cutting away the dead flesh]."

54

Jesus said, "Blessed are the poor [in knowledge], for yours is the Kingdom of Heaven."

55

Jesus said, "Whoever does not hate his father and his mother [the male and female principle of the carnal teachings] cannot become a disciple to Me. And whoever does not hate his brothers and sisters [companions of thought] and take up his cross [contradiction] in My way will not be worthy of Me [says truth]."

56

Jesus said, "Whoever has known the world [the dead letter] has found a corpse, and whoever has found [not known - but understands] a corpse, of him the world [carnal populace] is not worthy."

57

Jesus said, "The Kingdom of the Father is like a man who had (good) seed. His enemy came by night [no spiritual understanding] and sowed weeds [confusion] among the good seed. The man bid not the workers to pull up the weeds; he said to them: 'Lest perhaps you go to pull up the weed and pull up the wheat along with it.' For on the day of the harvest the weeds will appear [because everything is at its fruition], and they will be pulled up and burned [by the truth]."

58

Jesus said, "Blessed is the man who has suffered, he has found the life [or the truth]."

59

Jesus said, "Look upon the Living One [the truth] while you are alive, lest you die [become carnal-minded] and seek to see Him and be unable to do so."

60

They saw a Samaritan [represents those in confusion] carrying a lamb [the Word] on his way to Judea [or to find the truth]. He said to his disciples, "(Why does) this man (carry) the lamb with him?" They said to him, "In order that he may kill it and eat it." He said to them, "As long as it is alive [Spiritual], he will not eat it, but only when he has killed it [or taken it literally] and it has become a corpse [the dead letter or flesh]." They said to him, "He cannot do so otherwise [because he can not eat Spiritual food]." He said to them, "You too, look for a place for yourself within the Repose [rest, knowing, understanding, peace], lest you become a corpse and be eaten [by the lion turned man]."

61

Jesus said, "Two will rest on a bed: the one will die, and other will live [one side is darkness - death the other side is light - Life]." Salome said to him, "Who art thou, man, and whose (son)? Thou didst take thy place up on my bench and eat from my table?" Jesus said to her, "I am He who is from the same, to me was given things of my Father." Salome said, "I am thy disciple." Jesus said to her, "Therefore I say, if he is (undivided), he will be filled with light, but if he is divided, he will be filled with darkness."

62

Jesus said, "It is to those (who are worthy of My) mysteries that I tell My mysteries. Do not let your left hand know what your

right hand is doing."

63

Jesus said, "There was a rich man who had much money [carnal intellect, pride, arrogancy etc]. He said, 'I shall put my money to use so that I may sow, reap, plant, and fill my storehouse with fruit [the fruit of the knowledge], so that I lack nothing. This is what he thought in his heart. And that night he died. Whoever has ears [Spiritual understanding] to hear let him hear."

64

Jesus said, "A man had guest-friends. And when he had prepared the dinner, he sent his servant to invite the guest-friends. He went to the first one and said to him, "My master invites you.' He said, 'I have claims against some merchants. They are coming to me in the evening. I must go and give them my orders. I ask to be excused from the dinner.' He went to another and said, 'My master has invited you.' He said to him, 'I have just bought a house and am required for the day. I shall not have any spare time.' He went to another and said to him, 'My master invites you.' He said to him, 'My friend is going to get married, and I am to prepare the banquet. I shall not be able to come. I ask to be excused from the dinner.' He went to another and said to him, 'My master invites you.' He said to him, 'I have just bought a farm, and I am on my way to collect the rent. I shall not be able to come. I ask to be excused.' The servant returned and said to his master, 'Those whom you invited to the dinner have asked to be excused.' The master said to his servant, 'Go outside to the streets and bring back those whom you happen to find, so that they may dine.' Tradesmen [teachers] and merchants [make merchandise of the Word]will not enter the Places of My Father [Spiritual understandings of the Word. This dinner that had been prepared is, 'the truth']."

65

He said, "There was a good man [God the Word] who had a vineyard [peoples minds]. He gave it to husbandmen [teachers of the law - tillers of the ground or earth] so that they would work it and he might receive the fruit from them. He sent his servant so that the husbandmen might give him the fruit of the vineyard [so that He might fulfill the Law]. They seized his servant and beat him, all but killing him [prophets]. The servant went back and told his master. The master said, 'Perhaps <they> did not recognize <him>.' He sent another servant [Elijah - or John the Baptist spirit, preparing the way for the Son, by revealing corruption in religion, and letting us know something better is coming]. The husbandmen beat this one as well. Then the owner sent his son and said, 'Perhaps they will show respect to my son.' Because the husbandmen knew that it was he who was the heir to the vineyard, they seized him and killed him [by choosing Barrabbas, the letter, the murderer, thus crucifying - on the "cross" or contradiction of the truth, Jesus the Word]. Let him who has ears hear."

66

Jesus said, "Show me the stone [spiritual understanding, the Living Word, Jesus the Christ] which the builders [of carnal religions] have rejected. That one is the cornerstone [capstone of the pyramid]."

67

Jesus said, "Whoever knows the all [God the Word] but fails (to know) himself lacks everything [because we all are part of that "all," and that all is a part of us all. There is nothing that is not God]."

68

Jesus said, "Blessed are you when you are hated and persecuted [by the carnal]. Wherever you have been persecuted they will find no Place."

69

Jesus said, "Blessed are they who have been persecuted within themselves [by taking up the conflict or cross]. It is they who have truly come to know the Father. Blessed are the hungry, for the belly of him who desires ["I give unto everyone the intent and desires of their heart, I rain on the just and the unjust alike"] will be filled."

70

Jesus said, "If you bring forth what is within you [know ye not? Christ in you, the hope of glory"] , what you bring forth [the truth] will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you [or burn you up]."

71

Jesus said, "I shall destroy (this) house [the carnal-mind], and no man will be able to rebuild it."

72

(A man said) to Him, "Tell my brothers to divide my father's possessions with me." He said to him, "O man, who has made Me a divider?" He turned to His disciples and said to them, "I am not a divider, am I [only to the carnal-minded, because he said he came to bring confusion or division]?"

73

Jesus said, "The harvest is great but the laborers are few. Beseech the Lord, therefore, to send out laborers to the harvest."

74

He said, "O Lord, there are many around the drinking trough, but there is no one in the cistern [ many around the kingdom, but no one - in it]."

75

Jesus said, "Many are standing at the door, but it is the solitary [or dilligent] who will enter the bridal chamber."

76

Jesus said, "The kingdom of the Father is like a merchant who had a consignment of merchandise and who discovered a pearl. That merchant was shrewd. He sold the merchandise and bought the pearl alone for himself. You too, seek his unfailing and enduring treasure where no moth comes near to devour and no worm destroys [which is implying, the hidden treasure, a pearl taken out of the Word]."

77

Jesus said, "It is I who am the light which is above them all. It is I who am the All [life]. From Me did the All come forth, and unto Me did the All extend. Split a piece of wood, and I am there. Lift up the stone, and you will find Me there."

78

Jesus said, "Why have you come out into the desert? To see a reed shaken by the wind? And to see a man clothed in fine garments like your kings and your great men [carnal teachers]? Upon them are the fine (garments) [doctrinal sales gimmicks], and they are unable to discern the truth [from the same Word]."

79

A woman from the crowd said to Him, "Blessed are the womb which bore You and the breasts which nourished You." He said to her, "Blessed are those who have heard the [Spiritual] word of the Father [law] and have truly kept it. For there will be days when you will say, 'Blessed are the womb which has not conceived and the breasts which have not given milk [or the letter is no longer food and drink].'"

80

Jesus said, "He who has recognized the world has found the body [the "dead" body], but he who has found [or recognizesd] the body is superior to the world [carnal]."

81

Jesus said, "Let him who has grown rich [in Spiritual knowledge] be king, and let him who possesses power [much carnal knowledge] renounce it."

82

Jesus said, "He who is near Me is near the fire [or my Father], and he who is far from Me is far from the [truth] Kingdom."

83

Jesus said, "The images [of the Word] are manifest to man, but the light in them remains concealed in the image of the light of the Father. He will become manifest, but his image will remain concealed by his light."

84

Jesus said, "When you see your likeness, you rejoice. But when you see your images which came into being before you, which neither die nor become manifest, how much you will have to bear!"

85

Jesus said, "Adam [the evolved mind of the human species] came into being from a great power and a great wealth [learned - knowledge], but he did not become worthy of you [the Spiritual]. For had he been worthy, (he would]) not (have experienced) death [the lie]."

86

Jesus said, "(The foxes have their holes [or alibis) and the birds [lofty] have (their) nests, but the Son of Man [the good Word] has no place to lay his head [wich is Christ] and rest."

87

Jesus said, "Wretched is the body [flesh] that is dependant upon a body [flesh - the letter, the law, doctrines of men], and wretched is the soul that is dependent on these two."

88

Jesus said, "The angels and the prophets will come to you and give you those things you (already) have. And you too, give them those things which you have, and say to yourselves, 'When will they come and take what is theirs? [at the harvest]'"

89

Jesus said, "Why do you wash the outside of the cup? Do you not realize that he who made he inside is the same one who made the outside [or, heal the inner, the outer must follow suit]?"

90

While she was walking (on) a road [spiritual path], still some distance from home [the truth], the handle of the jar broke and the meal emptied out behind her on the road. She did not realize it; she had noticed no accident. When she reached her house [or came to herself], she set the jar down and found it empty [don't labor for that knowledge which perishes]."

98

Then he slew the powerful [learned man]."

For My mother [the carnal teachings, the earth] (gave me falsehood) [images], but (My) true (Mother) gave me life."

He inherited the field and sold (it). And the one who bought it went plowing and found the treasure [buying and selling is verbal intercourse, swapping and trading ideas]. He began to lend money without interest [freely I receive, freely I give] to whomever he wished."

For every woman who will make herself male [or knowledge-able] will enter the Kingdom of Heaven [or, for any imagination, the female principle, which receives and brings forth; to become knowledgeable, or male - strength - power - facts]."
