Jesus said: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.1(1) + a vine has been planted: The same was in the beginning with God.1(2) + without the Father: All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.1(3) + and as it is not established: In him was life;1(4t) + it will be pulled up by its roots: and the life was the light of men.1(4b) + and be destroyed: And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.1(5) [Note: The secret words which formed the Sayings contained in the Gospel of Thomas were created either to acknowledge the information they were created from or to reveal something about the information they were created for.

He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.1(7-8) + unless by force they bind his hands: That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.1(9) + then will he ransack his house: He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.

Jesus said, if a blind man leads a blind man: He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.

PART 4 - The Secret Words of Thomas Saying 28 were created from John 1(12-23)

Jesus said, I took my stand: But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:1(12) + in the midst of the world: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.1(13) + and in flesh I appeared to them: And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.1(14) + I found them all drunk: John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me.1(15) + I found none among them athirst: And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.1(16) + and my soul was afflicted for the sons of man: For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.1(17) + because they are blind in their heart: No man hath seen God at any time;1(18t) + and do not see: the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him. 1(18b) + that empty they have come into the world: And this is the record of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art thou?1(19) + and that empty they seek to go out of the world again: And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, I am not the Christ.1(20) + but now they are drunk: And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias? And he saith, I am not. Art thou that prophet? And he answered, No.1(21) + when they have shaken off their wine: Then said they unto him, Who art thou? that we may give an answer to them that sent us.1(22t) + then will they repent: What sayest thou of thyself? He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias.1(22b-23)

He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias.1(22b-23) + and when will we see thee: And they which were sent were of the Pharisees.1(24) + Jesus said: And they asked him, and said unto him, Why baptizest thou then, if thou be not that Christ, nor Elias, neither that prophet? 1(25) + when you take off your clothing without being ashamed: John answered them, saying, I baptize with water: but there standeth one among you, whom ye know not; He it is, who coming after me is preferred before me, whose shoe's latchet I am not worthy to unloose.1(26-27) + and take them: These things were done in Bethabara beyond Jordan, where John was baptizing.1(28) + and put them under your feet: The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.1(29) + as the little children: This is he of whom I said, After me cometh a man which is preferred before me: for he was before me.1(30) + and tread on them: And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water.1(31) + then shall you behold the Son of the Living: And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him.

And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth?

Jesus said: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.1(1) + a vine has been planted: The same was in the beginning with God.1(2) + without the Father: All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.1(3) + and as it is not established: In him was life;1(4t) + it will be pulled up by its roots: and the life was the light of men.1(4b) + and be destroyed: And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.1(5)

Jesus said: In the beginning was the Word [the good], and the Word [the good] was with God [the Spirit of knowledge of good and evil], and the Word [the good] was God [the Spirit of good - the Spirit of truth].1(1) + a vine has been planted: The same [Lord Eve] was in the beginning with God [Lord Adam].1(2) + without the Father: All things were made by him [the spirit - the word]; and without him [the light - the good] was not any thing made that was made.1(3) + and as it is not established: In him [Lord Adam - the Father of all living] was life [blood];1(4t) + it will be pulled up by its roots: and the life [Lord Eve - the Mother of all living] was the light [the truth] of men.1(4b) + and be destroyed: And the light [good/the truth] shineth in darkness [evil/the lies]; and the darkness [evil/the lies] comprehended it [good/the truth] not.1(5)


Note: Jesus said: In the beginning was the Word [the good], and the Word [the good] was with God [the Spirit of knowledge of good and evil], and the Word [the good] was God [the Spirit of good - the Spirit of truth].1(1) - without the Father: All things were made by him [the spirit - the word]; and without him [the light - the good] was not any thing made that was made.1(3)

     Genesis 1(1-31): In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning [+ the night - the darkness] were the first day. And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so. And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning [+ the night - the darkness] were the second day. And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good. And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And the evening and the morning [+ the night - the darkness] were the third day. And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. And the evening and the morning [+ the night - the darkness] were the fourth day. And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. And the evening and the morning [+ the night - the darkness] were the fifth day. And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so. And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so. And God saw every thing that he had made [in the light], and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning [+ the night - the darkness] were the sixth day.

     Genesis 2(1-4): Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day [light/day] God ended his work which he had made [6 days - light/days]; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made. These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens,

     John 9(3-5): Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him. I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.

     John 11(8-10): His disciples say unto him, Master, the Jews of late sought to stone thee; and goest thou thither again? Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day [light/day]? If any man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light [the truth] of this world. But if a man walk in the night [darkness/lies], he stumbleth, because there is no light [truth] in him.

     Psalm 33(4-9): For the word of the LORD is right; and all his works are done in truth. He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the goodness of the LORD. By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth. He gathereth the waters of the sea together as an heap: he layeth up the depth in storehouses. Let all the earth fear the LORD: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him. For he spake, and it was done [the word - the spirit]; he commanded, and it stood fast.


Note: John 1(1-2): In the beginning was the Word [the good], and the Word [the good] was with God [the Spirit of knowledge of good and evil], and the Word [the good] was God [the Spirit of good - the Spirit of truth]. The same [Lord Eve] was in the beginning with God [Lord Adam].

     Isaiah 44(24-28): Thus saith the LORD [Lord Adam - the Father], thy redeemer, and he [Lord Eve - the Mother] that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself; That frustrateth the tokens of the liars, and maketh diviners mad; that turneth wise men backward, and maketh their knowledge foolish; That confirmeth the word of his servant, and performeth the counsel of his messengers; that saith to Jerusalem, Thou shalt be inhabited; and to the cities of Judah, Ye shall be built, and I will raise up the decayed places thereof: That saith to the deep, Be dry, and I will dry up thy rivers: That saith of Cyrus, He is my shepherd, and shall perform all my pleasure: even saying to Jerusalem, Thou shalt be built; and to the temple, Thy foundation shall be laid.

     Isaiah 43(8-13): Bring forth the blind people that have eyes, and the deaf that have ears. Let all the nations be gathered together, and let the people be assembled [for the final passover - Saturday/Sabbath 15th Day (Jesus the Lamb of God]: who among them can declare this [the future], and shew us former things [the past]? let them bring forth their witnesses, that they may be justified: or let them hear, and say, It is truth. Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant [Noah/Moses/Isaiah the same Nicodemus] whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me [Adam - the Father of all living - not born of woman] there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me [Eve - the Mother of all living - not born of woman]. I [Father], even I [Mother], am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour. I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, when there was no strange god among you: therefore ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, that I am God. Yea, before the day was I am he; and there is none that can deliver out of my hand: I will work, and who shall let it?

     Thomas 46(6-10) Part 7 of Chapter 8: Jesus said, from Adam: Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that thou hast a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayest, If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death.8(52) + until John [Jesus] the Baptist: Art thou greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and the prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself? Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me [<Jesus the Baptist];8(53-54t) + there is among those: of whom ye say, that he [Adam] is your God:8(54b) + who are born of women: Yet ye have not known him; but I [Jesus/Eve - the Son] know him:8(55t) + none higher than John [Jesus] the Baptist: and if I [Mother] should say, I [Lord Eve] know him [Lord Adam] not, I [Jesus/Eve - the Son] shall be a liar like unto you: but I know him, and keep his saying.8(55b) + so that his eyes will not be broken: Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he [blind man/Abraham] saw it, and was glad. Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham?8(56-57) + but I have said: Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.8(58)

     Thomas 85(29-30) Part 1 of Chapter 13: Jesus said, Adam: For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father [Lord Adam] which sent me [Lord Eve], he gave me a commandment, what I [Mother] should say, and what I [Son] should speak. And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I [the Son] speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me [the Mother], so I [the LORD] speak.12(49-50)

     Thomas 61(32-34) Part 1 of Chapter 14: if he is the same: And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.14(13) + he will: If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.14(14) + be filled with light: If ye love me, keep my commandments. And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him:14(15-17t) + but if he is divided: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.14(17b) + he will: I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.14(18) + be filled with darkness: Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.14(19)


Note: Jesus said: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.1(1) + a vine has been planted: The same [Lord Eve] was in the beginning with God [Lord Adam].1(2)

     Thomas 85(29-30) Part 1 of Chapter 13: Jesus said, Adam: For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father [Lord Adam] which sent me [Lord Eve], he gave me a commandment, what I [Mother] should say, and what I [Son] should speak. And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I [the Son] speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me [the Mother], so I [the LORD] speak.12(49-50)

     Thomas 94(33) Part 4 of Chapter 17: Jesus said: O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.17(25) + whoever seeks will find: And I have declared unto them thy name [Jesus/Adam], and will declare it [Jesus/Adam]: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.17(26) [Note: Jesus/Adam given only 2 times in the entire Gospel of Thomas.]

     Thomas 2(17) Part 4 of Chapter 12: he will: Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it [Gospel according to Thomas, Saying 46 Part 7 of Chapter 8: Jesus said, from Adam], and will glorify it again [Gospel according to Thomas, Saying 85 Part 1 of Chapter 13: Jesus said: Adam].12(28)

     Thomas 12(26) Part 6 of Chapter 12: who is it: Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him [the Father] that sent me [the Mother]. And he that seeth me [Jesus] seeth him [Lord Adam] that sent me [Lord Eve].12(44-45)

     Thomas 22(34) Part 4 of Chapter 5: and an image in the place of an image: I [Mother] am come in my Father’s name [Jesus/Adam], and ye receive me [the Son] not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.5(43)

     Thomas 21(14-18) Part 6 of Chapter 3: because he will: And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth [the truth];3(32t) + find the advantage which you expect: and no man receiveth his testimony [the truth].3(32b) + let there be among you: He that hath received his testimony [the truth] hath set to his seal that God is true.3(33) + a man of understanding: For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God [the truth]:3(34t) + when the fruit ripened he came quickly: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him.3(34b) + with his sickle in his hand: The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand.3(35) + he reaped it: He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.3(36)

     John 17(13-20): And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves. I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth. Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word [the truth which Nicodemus recorded in his Gospel according to John + Thomas];


Note: a vine has been planted: The same [Lord Eve] was in the beginning with God [Lord Adam].1(2)

     Genesis 2(20-24): And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him. And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

     Thomas 22(27-31) Part 4 of Chapter 5: and the above as the below: But I have greater witness than that of John [Abel/Aaron/John]: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.5(36) + and when you make the male and the female into a single one: And the Father himself, which hath sent me [the Mother], hath borne witness of me.5(37t) + so that the male will be male: Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.5(37b) + and the female not be female: And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom [the Mother - Lord Eve] he [the Father - Lord Adam] hath sent, him [the Son - Lord Jesus/Eve] ye believe not.5(38)

     Thomas 22(34) Part 4 of Chapter 5: and an image in the place of an image: I [Mother] am come in my Father's name [Jesus/Adam], and ye receive me [the Son] not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.5(43)

     Thomas 96(2-3) Part 6 of Chapter 16: Jesus said, the kingdom of the Father is like a woman: I [Lord Eve the Mother] came forth from the Father [Lord Adam], and am come into the world: again, I [Lord Jesus/Eve the Son] leave the world, and go to the Father [Lord Adam/Jesus]. His disciples said unto him, Lo, now speakest thou plainly, and speakest no proverb.16(28-29)

     Genesis 4(25-26): And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God [Lord Adam], said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew. And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon [Adam] the name of the LORD.

     John 15(1-10): I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples. As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.


Note: without the Father: All things were made by him [the spirit - the word]; and without him [the light - the truth] was not any thing made that was made.1(3)

     Thomas 30(2-6) Part 3 of Chapter 4: Jesus said: Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father.4(21) + where there are three gods: Ye worship ye know not what:4(22t) + they are gods: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.4(22b) + where there are two: But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit [word] and in truth [light]:4(23t) + or one: for the Father [God] seeketh such to worship him.4(23b) + I am: God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit [word] and in truth [light].4(24) + with him: The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things. Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.4(25-26)

     Thomas 29(31-34) Part 4 of Chapter 4: Jesus said, if the flesh has come into existence because of the spirit, it is a marvel: The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things.4(25) + but if the spirit because of the body, it is a marvel of marvels: Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he. And upon this came his disciples, and marvelled that he talked with the woman: yet no man said, What seekest thou? or, Why talkest thou with her?4(26-27)

     John 12(34-36): The people answered him, We have heard out of the law that Christ abideth for ever: and how sayest thou, The Son of man must be lifted up? who is this Son of man? Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light [the truth] with you. Walk while ye have the light [the truth], lest darkness [lies] come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness [lies] knoweth not whither he goeth. While ye have light [truth], believe in the light [the truth], that ye may be the children of light [truth]. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them.


Note: and as it is not established: In him [Lord Adam - the Father of all living] was life [blood];1(4t)

     Genesis 2(21-24): And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

     Genesis 3(19-20): In the sweat of thy face shall thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it was thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust thou shalt return. And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.

     Genesis 4(6-11): And the LORD said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen? If thou doest well [good], shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well [evil], sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his [sins] desire, and thou shalt rule over him [sin]. And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him [Cain - the murderer]. And the LORD [Lord Adam the Father] said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not [Cain - the liar]: Am I my brother’s keeper? And he [Lord Eve the Mother] said, What hast thou done? The voice [the spirit] of thy brother’s blood [life] crieth unto me from the ground. And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother’s blood from thy hand;

     Genesis 6(3): And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.

     Genesis 9(1-6): And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth. And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered. Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things. But the flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat. And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man’s brother will I require the life of man. Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God [Lord Adam] made he [Lord Eve] man.


Note: it will be pulled up by its roots: and the life [Lord Eve - the Mother of all living] was the light [the truth] of men.1(4b)

     John 6(62-65): What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before? It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him. And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.

     Thomas 79(6-8) Part 3 of Chapter 11: He said to her, blessed are those who have heard: Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again. Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.11(23-24) + the word: Jesus said unto her, I [Lord Adam and Lord Eve] am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.11(25-26t) + of the Father: Believest thou this? She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.11(26b-27)

     Thomas 96(2-3) Part 6 of Chapter 16: Jesus said, the kingdom of the Father is like a woman: I [Lord Eve the Mother] came forth from the Father [Lord Adam], and am come into the world: again, I [Lord Jesus/Eve the Son] leave the world, and go to the Father [Lord Adam/Jesus]. His disciples said unto him, Lo, now speakest thou plainly, and speakest no proverb.16(28-29)

     Thomas 9(6-8) Part 1 of Chapter 10: others fell on the rock: And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice. And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.10(4-5) + and did not: This parable spake Jesus unto them: but they understood not what things they were which he spake unto them.10(6) + strike root in the earth: Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers [should read: and liars]: but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.10(7-9)

     Deuteronomy 32(31-40): For their rock is not as our Rock, even our enemies themselves being judges. For their vine is of the vine of Sodom, and of the fields of Gomorrah: their grapes are grapes of gall, their clusters are bitter: Their wine is the poison of dragons, and the cruel venom of asps. Is not this laid up in store with me, and sealed up among my treasures? To me belongeth vengeance, and recompence; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste. For the LORD shall judge his people, and repent himself for his servants, when he seeth that their power is gone, and there is none shut up, or left. And he shall say, Where are their gods, their rock in whom they trusted, Which did eat the fat of their sacrifices, and drank the wine of their drink offerings? let them rise up and help you, and be your protection. See now that I [Adam - the Father of all living], even I [Eve - the Mother of all living], am he [the LORD], and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand. For I lift up my hand to heaven, and say, I live for ever.


Note: and as it is not established: In him [Lord Adam - the Father of all living was life [blood];1(4t) + it will be pulled up by its roots: and the life [Lord Eve - the Mother of all living] was the light [the truth] of men.1(4b)

     Genesis 2( 23-24): And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

     Thomas 96(2-3) Part 6 of Chapter 16: Jesus said, the kingdom of the Father is like a woman: I [Lord Eve the Mother] came forth from the Father [Lord Adam], and am come into the world: again, I [Lord Jesus/Eve the Son] leave the world, and go to the Father [Lord Adam/Jesus]. His disciples said unto him, Lo, now speakest thou plainly, and speakest no proverb.16(28-29)

     John 6(47-64): Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life. I [Lord Eve/Jesus] am the bread of life. Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead. This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may [believe] eat thereof, and not die. I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man [believe] eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world. The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat? Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye [believe] eat the flesh of the Son of man [Lord Jesus/Eve], and drink his blood, ye have no life [truth] in you. Whoso [believeth] eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. He that [beliveth] eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him. As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that [believeth] eateth me, even he shall live by me. This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that [believeth] eateth of this bread shall live for ever. These things said he in the synagogue, as he taught in Capernaum. Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard this, said, This is an hard saying; who can hear it.? When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, Doth this offend you? What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before? It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life [truth]. But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him.

     John 6(26-29): Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled. Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat [the truth] which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed. Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.


Note: and be destroyed: And the light [good/the truth] shineth in darkness [evil/the lies]; and the darkness [evil/the lies] comprehended it [good/the truth] not.1(5)

     John 3(18-21): He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness [lies] rather than light [truth], because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

     Thomas 6(18-23) Part 5 of Chapter 8: Jesus said, do: Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham.8(39b) + not: But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.8(40) + lie: Ye do the deeds of your father.8(41t) + and do not: Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.8(41b) + do: Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.8(42) + what: Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.8(43) + you: Ye are of your father the devil,8(44t) + hate: and the lusts of your father ye will do.8(44t) + for all things: He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him.8(44c) + are manifest before the truth: When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.8(44b) + for there is nothing hidden: And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.8(45) + that shall not be: Which of you convinceth me of sin?8(46t) + revealed: And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?8(46b) + and there is nothing covered: He that is of God heareth God's words:8(47t) + that shall remain: ye therefore hear them not,8(47c) + without being uncovered: because ye are not of God.8(47b)

     Thomas 45(31-5) Part 6 of Chapter 8: Jesus said, they do not harvest grapes: And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.8(45) + from thorns: Which of you convinceth me of sin?8(46t) + nor do they gather figs: And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?8(46b) + from thistles: He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.8(47) + for they give no fruit: Then answered the Jews, and said unto him, Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil?8(48) + a good man: Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but I honour my Father, and ye do dishonour me.8(49) + brings forth: And I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeketh and judgeth.8(50) + good out of his treasure: Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death.8(51) + an evil man brings forth evil things out of his evil treasure which is in his heart and speaks evil things: Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that thou hast a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayest, If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death.8(52) + for out of the abundance of the heart he brings forth evil things: Art thou greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and the prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself?8(53)

     John 12(31-36): Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince [the Prince of Peace] of this world be cast out. And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me. This he said, signifying what death he should die. The people answered him, We have heard out of the law that Christ abideth for ever: and how sayest thou, The Son of man must be lifted up? who is this Son of man? Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light [the truth] with you. Walk while ye have the light [the truth], lest darkness [lies] come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness [lies] knoweth not whither he goeth. While ye have light [truth], believe in the light [the truth], that ye may be the children of light [truth]. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them.

     John 12(44-46): Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him [the Father] that sent me [the Mother]. And he that seeth me [the Son - Lord Jesus/Eve] seeth him [Lord Adam] that sent me [Lord Eve]. I am come a light [truth] into the world, that whosoever believeth on me [Jesus/Adam] should not abide in darkness [the lies].


Note: and be destroyed: And the light [good/the truth] shineth in darkness [evil/the lies]; and the darkness [evil/the lies] comprehended it [good/the truth] not.1(5)

     John 8(37-41): I know that ye are Abraham’s seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you. I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father. They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham. But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham. Ye do the deeds of your father.

     Thomas 71(34-35) Part 6 of Chapter 19: I shall: Pilate answered, What I have written I have written.19(22) + destroy this house: Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments, and made four parts, to every soldier a part;19(23t) + and: and also his coat: now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout.19(23b) + no: They said therefore among themselves, Let us not rend it,19(24t) + one: but cast lots for it, whose it shall be.19(24t) + will be: that the scripture might be fulfilled, which saith, They parted my raiment among them, and for my vesture they did cast lots. These things therefore the soldiers did.19(24b) + able to build it again: Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene.19(25)

     John 19(14-16): And it was the preparation of the passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King! But they cried out, Away with him, away with him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered, We have no king but Caesar. Then delivered he him therefore unto them to be crucified. And they took Jesus, and led him away.

     John 6(58-64): This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever. These things said he in the synagogue, as he taught in Capernaum. Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard this, said, This is an hard saying; who can hear it? When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, Doth this offend you? What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before? It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life [the truth]. But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him.


Scriptural Parallels and Echoes

The second thief and liar - Matthew 15(10-20) - The second false gospel

And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand: Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man [taken from Thomas Saying 14(24-27) Part 1 of Chapter 12]. Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying? But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up [taken from Thomas Saying 40(13-15) Part 1 of Chapter 1]. Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch [taken from Thomas Saying 34(18-20) Part 3 of Chapter 1]. Then answered Peter and said unto him, Declare unto us this parable [impossible because the sayings themselves have no value except for the secret words which formed them]. And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding? Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught? But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies: These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashed hands defileth not a man [created from Thomas Saying 14(19-27) Part 1 of Chapter 12 & Thomas Saying 45(1-5) Part 6 of Chapter 8].

Note: The Sayings contained in the Gospel of Thomas have no value except for keeping the secret words which formed them in a specific order. The Synoptic Gospel writers are not only thieves but also liars because they used many of the Sayings (whole/parts) from the Gospel of Thomas as if they had value. It is the secret words which formed the Sayings that have great value but only when placed back into the Gospel of John revealing the information they were originally created from or created for. This note will be repeated every time Scriptural Parallels and Echoes are given because it is very important for you to see and know that the Synoptic Gospel writers when using the Sayings from the Gospel of Thomas have given them value which they never had.

NOTE: There are no ‘Scriptural Parallels’ found in the Gospel of John and one should be very careful of the word ‘Echoes’. Saying 40 states the following: “Jesus said, a vine has been planted without the Father and as it is not established, it will be pulled up by its roots and be destroyed.” The Scholars who worked on the Gospel of Thomas (1959 publication) have given John 15(1-10) as an Echo (compare). These verses contain the following:

     I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and ever branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples. As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.

Now it should be obvious that the only thing Saying 40 and John 15(1-10) have in common are the words vine and Father. The Scriptural Parallel found in the Gospel of Matthew - 15(13) is important: “But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.” The Synoptic Gospel writers used many of the Sayings (whole/parts) from the Gospel of Thomas when creating their Gospels but they were not aware of the fact that the Gospel of Thomas was created from the Gospel of John.

The Secret Words of Thomas Saying (35) were created from John 1(5-11)

Jesus said, it is not possible for one to enter: And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.1(5) + the house of the strong: There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.1(6) + and take him: The same [Abel/Aaron/John] came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.1(7-8) + unless by force they bind his hands: That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.1(9) + then will he ransack his house: He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not.1(10-11)


Note: Jesus said, it is not possible for one to enter: And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.1(5)

     John 3(17-21): For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For ever one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

     John 12(35-41): Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth. While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them. But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him: That the saying of Esaias the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spake, Lord, who hath believed our report? and to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed? Therefore they could not believe, because that Esaias said again, He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them. These things said Esaias, when he saw his glory, and spake of him.

     John 5(31-36): If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true. There is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he [Abel] witnesseth of me is true. Ye sent unto John, and he bare witness unto the truth. But I receive not testimony from man [John]: but these things I say, that ye might be saved. He [Aaron] was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light. But I have greater witness than that of John [Abel/Aaron/John]: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.

     Thomas 77(23-24) Part 1 of Chapter 11: Jesus said, I am the light that is above them all: And many resorted unto him, and said, John did no miracle: but all things that John spake of this man were true. And many believed on him there.10(41-42)

     John 12(44-46): Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me. And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me. I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.

     Psalm 5(1-5): Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation. Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray. My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up. For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee. The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.


Note: the house of the strong: There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.1(6) + and take him: The same [Abel/Aaron/John] came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.1(7)

     Malachi 3(1-6): Behold, I will send my messenger [Abel/Aaron the same John], and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger [Noah/Moses/Isaiah the same Nicodemus] of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts. But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner’s fire, and like fullers’ soap: And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness. Then shall the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasant unto the LORD, as in the days of old, and as in former years. And I will come near to you to judgement; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger from his right, and fear not me, saith the LORD of hosts. For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.

     Isaiah 40(25-31): To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One. Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth. Why sayest thou, O Jacob, and speakest, O Israel, My way is hid from the LORD, and my judgment is passed over from my God? Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

     Thomas 98(17&20) Part 5 of Chapter 15: a powerful man: because they know not him that sent me.15(21b) - the powerful: And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.16(3)

     Thomas 83(22) Part 3 of Chapter 13: in the image of the light of the Father: Now I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe that I am he. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that receiveth whomsoever I [Mother] send receiveth me [Jesus]; and he that receiveth me [Jesus] receiveth him [Lord Adam] that sent me [Lord Eve].13(19-20)

     Psalm 24(8-10): Who is the King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is the King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.


Note: the house of the strong: There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.1(6) + and take him: The same [Abel/Aaron/John] came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.1(7)

     John 3(23-28): And John also was baptizing in Aenon near to Salim, because there was much water there: and they came, and were baptized. For John was not yet cast into prison. Then there arose a question between some of John’s disciples and the Jews about purifying. And they came unto John, and said unto him, Rabbi, he that was with thee beyond Jordan, to whom thou barest witness, behold, the same baptizeth, and all men come to him. John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven. Ye yourselves bear me witness, that I said, I am not the Christ, but that I am sent before him.

     Thomas 37(33) Part 5 of Chapter 1: as the little children: This is he of whom I [John the same Abel/Aaron] said, After me [John - born of woman] cometh a man [Jesus - born of woman] which is preferred before me [Aaron - born of woman]: for he [Lord Eve - the Mother of all living - not born of woman] was before me [Abel - born of woman].1(30)

     Genesis 4(1-12): And Adam [the Father of all living - not born of woman] knew Eve his wife [the Mother of all living - not born of woman]; and she conceived, and bare Cain [born of woman], and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD. And she again bare his brother Abel [born of woman]. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground. And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD. And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his offering: But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell. And the LORD said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen? If thou doest well [good], shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well [evil], sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his [sins] desire, and thou shalt rule over him [sin]. And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him [Cain - the murderer]. And the LORD [Lord Adam the Father] said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not [Cain - the liar]: Am I my brother’s keeper? And he [Lord Eve the Mother] said, What hast thou done? the voice [the spirit] of thy brother’s blood [life] crieth unto me from the ground. And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother’s blood from thy hand; When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth.

     Thomas 37(34-1) Part 5 of Chapter 1: then shall you behold the Son of the Living: And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him. And I [John] knew him [Jesus] not: but he [the LORD] that sent me [Aaron] to baptize with water, the same [Adam] said unto me [Abel], Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same [Eve] is he [Jesus] which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost. And I [John the same Abel/Aaron] saw, and bare record that this [Jesus/Eve] is the Son of God.1(32-34)

     Thomas 21(8-10) Part 6 of Chapter 3: he will stay awake before he comes: I am not the Christ, but that I am sent before him.3(28b) + and will not let him dig through into his house of his kingdom: He that hath the bride is the bridegroom:3(29t) + to carry away his goods: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him [the bride], rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom's voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled.3(29b)


Note: the house of the strong: There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.1(6) + and take him: The same [Abel/Aaron/John] came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.1(7-8)

     Thomas 13(3-7) Part 2 of Chapter 10: be capable of saying whom thou art like: the works that I do in my Father’s name, they bear witness of me:10(25b) + Jesus said, I am: But ye believe not,10(26t) + not thy Master: because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.10(26b) + because thou hast drunk thou hast become drunk: My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:10(27) + from the bubbling spring: And I give unto them eternal life;10(28t) + which I have measured out: and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.10(28b) + and he took him: My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. I and my Father are one.10(29-30)

     Genesis 4(1-12): And Adam [the Father of all living - not born of woman] knew Eve his wife [the Mother of all living - not born of woman]; and she conceived, and bare Cain [born of woman], and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD. And she again bare his brother Abel [born of woman]. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground. And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD. And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his offering: But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell. And the LORD said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen? If thou doest well [good], shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well [evil], sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his [sins] desire, and thou shalt rule over him [sin]. And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him [Cain - the murderer]. And the LORD [Lord Adam the Father] said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not [Cain - the liar]: Am I my brother’s keeper? And he [Lord Eve the Mother] said, What hast thou done? the voice [the spirit] of thy brother’s blood [life] crieth unto me from the ground. And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother’s blood from thy hand; When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth.

     Genesis 6(3): And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.

     Genesis 9(4-6): But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat. And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man’s brother will I require the life of man. Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man.

     Thomas 22(25-28) Part 4 of Chapter 5: and when you make the inner [Abel] as the outer [John]: There is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he [Abel] witnesseth of me is true. Ye sent unto John, and he bare witness unto the truth.5(32-33) + and the outer [John] as the inner [Abel/Aaron]: But I receive not testimony from man [John]: but these things I say, that ye might be saved. He [Aaron] was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light.5(34-35) + and the above as the below: But I have greater witness than that of John [Abel/Aaron/John]: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.5(36)

     Thomas 37(34-1) Part 5 of Chapter 1: then shall you behold the Son of the Living: And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him. And I [John] knew him [Jesus] not: but he [the LORD] that sent me [Aaron] to baptize with water, the same [Adam] said unto me [Abel], Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same [Eve] is he [Jesus] which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost. And I [John the same Abel/Aaron] saw, and bare record that this [Jesus/Eve] is the Son of God.1(32-34)

     Thomas 41(16-18) Part 6 of Chapter 4: whoever has in his hand: And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together.4(36) + to him shall be given: And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth.4(37) + and whoever does not have: I sent you [example: John] to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour:4(38t) + from him shall be taken: other men laboured, and ye [example: John the same Abel/Aaron] are entered into their labours.4(38b)


Note: the house of the strong: There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.1(6) + and take him: The same [Abel/Aaron/John] came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.1(7-8) + unless by force they bind his hands: That was the true Light, which lighteth ever man that cometh into the world.1(9)

     John 5(31-36): If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true. There is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he [Abel] witnesseth of me is true. Ye sent unto John, and he bare witness unto the truth. But I receive not testimony from man [John]: but these things I say, that ye might be saved. He [Aaron] was a burning and shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light. But I [Jesus] have a greater witness than that of John [Abel/Aaron/John]: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.

     Thomas 77(23-24) Part 1 of Chapter 11: Jesus said, I am the light that is above them all: And many resorted unto him, and said, John did no miracle: but all things that John spake of this man were true. And many believed on him there.10(41-42)


Note: and take him: The same [Abel/Aaron/John] came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.1(7-8) + unless by force they bind his hands: That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.1(9)

     John 3(22-28): After these things came Jesus and his disciples into the land of Judaea; and there he tarried with them, and baptized. And John also was baptizing in Aenon near to Salim, because there was much water there: and they came, and were baptized. For John was not yet cast into prison. Then there arose a question between some of John’s disciples and the Jews about purifying. And they came unto John, and said unto him, Rabbi, he that was with thee beyond Jordan, to whom thou barest witness, behold,, the same baptizeth, and all men come to him. John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven. Ye yourselves bear me witness, that I said, I am not the Christ, but that I am sent before him.

     John 18(3-13): Judas then, having received a band of men and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, cometh thither with lanterns and torches and weapons. Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth, and said unto them, Whom seek ye? They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am he. And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them. As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground. Then asked he them again, Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus answered, I have told you that I am he: if therefore ye seek me, let these go their way: That the saying might be fulfilled, which he spake, Of them which thou gavest me have I lost none. Then Simon Peter having a sword drew it, and smote the high priest's servant, and cut off his right ear. The servant's name was Malchus. Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up thy sword into the sheath: the cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it? Then the band and the captain and officers of the Jews took Jesus, and bound him, And led him away to Annas first; for he was father in law to Caiaphas, which was the high priest that same year.

     Psalm 118(22-29): The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner. This is the LORD’S doing; it is marvellous in our eyes. This is the day [Saturday/Sabbath 15th Day (light/day)] which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. Save now, I beseech thee, O LORD: O LORD, I beseech thee, send now prosperity. Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the LORD: we have blessed you out of the house of the LORD. God is the LORD, which hath shewed us light: bind the sacrifice with cords, even unto the horns of the alter. Thou art my God, and I will praise thee: thou art my God, I will exalt thee. O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.


Note: then will he ransack his house: He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not.1(10-11)

     John 19(14-16): And it was the preparation of the passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King! But they cried out, Away with him, away with him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered, We have no king but Caesar. Then delivered he him therefore unto them to be crucified. And they took Jesus, and led him away.

     John 19(23-24): Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments, and made four parts, to every soldier a part; and also his coat: now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout. They said therefore among themselves, Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be: that the scripture might be fulfilled, which saith, They parted my raiment among them, and for my vesture they did cast lots. These things therefore the soldiers did.

     Thomas 71(34-35) Part 6 of Chapter 19: Jesus said: Then said the chief priests of the Jews to Pilate, Write not, The King of the Jews; but that he said, I am King of the Jews.19(21) + I shall: Pilate answered, What I have written I have written.19(22) + destroy this house: Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments, and made four parts, to every soldier a part;19(23t) + and: and also his coat: now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout.19(23b) + no: They said therefore among themselves, Let us not rend it,19(24t) + one: but cast lots for it, whose it shall be:19(24t) + will be: that the scripture might be fulfilled, which saith, They parted my raiment among them, and for my vesture they did cast lots. These things therefore the soldiers did.19(24b) + able to build it again: Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene.19(25)


Note: then will he ransack his house: He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not.1(10-11)

     Isaiah 65(8-16): Thus saith the LORD, As the new wine is found in the cluster, and one saith, Destroy it not; for a blessing is in it: so will I do for my servants’ sakes, that I may not destroy them all. And I will bring forth a seed out of Jacob, and out of Judah an inheritor of my mountains: and my elect shall inherit it, and my servants shall dwell there. And Sharon shall be a fold of flocks, and the valley of Achor a place for the herds to lie down in, for my people that have sought me. But ye are they that forsake the LORD, that forget my holy mountain, that prepare a table for that troop, and that furnish the drink offering unto that number. Therefore will I number you to the sword, and ye shall all bow down to the slaughter: because when I [Jesus] called, ye did not answer; when I spake, ye did not hear; but did evil before mine eyes, and did choose that wherein I delighted not. Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, my servants shall eat, but ye shall be hungry: behold, my servants shall drink, but ye shall be thirsty: behold, my servants shall rejoice, but ye shall be ashamed: Behold, my servants shall sing for joy of heart, but ye shall cry for sorrow of heart, and shall howl for vexation of spirit. And ye shall leave your name for a curse unto my chosen: for the Lord GOD shall slay thee, and call his servants by another name [my friends]: That he who blesseth himself in the earth shall bless himself in the God of truth; and he that sweareth in the earth shall swear by the God of truth; because the former troubles are forgotten, and because they are hid from mine eyes.


Scriptural Parallels and Echoes

The first thief and liar - Mark 3(27-35) - The first false gospel

No man can enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house [taken from Thomas Saying 35(20-23) Part 2 of Chapter 1]. Verily I say unto you [always “Verily, verily, I (Father and Mother) say unto you,” according to the Gospel of John], All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme: But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation: Because they said, He hath an unclean spirit [taken from Thomas Saying 44(26-31) Part 3 of Chapter 5]. There came then his brethren and his mother, and, standing without, sent unto him, calling him. And the multitude sat about him, and they said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren without seek for thee. And he answered them, saying, Who is my mother, or my brethren? And he looked round about on them which sat about him, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren! For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother [created from Thomas Saying 99(21-25) Part 10 of Chapter 19].

The second thief and liar - Matthew 12(28-35) - The second false gospel

But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you. Or else how can one enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his house [taken from Thomas Saying 35(20-23) Part 2 of Chapter 1]. He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad. Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come [taken from Thomas Saying 44(26-31) Part 3 of Chapter 5]. Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit [created from Thomas Saying 43(21-26) Part 4 of Chapter 8]. O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things [taken from Thomas Saying 45(34-5) Part 6 of Chapter 8].

The third thief and liar - Luke 11(21-22) - The third false gospel

When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace: But when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils [created from Thomas Saying 35(20-23) Part 2 of Chapter 1].

Note: The Sayings contained in the Gospel of Thomas have no value except for keeping the secret words which formed them in a specific order. The Synoptic Gospel writers are not only thieves but also liars because they used many of the Sayings (whole/parts) from the Gospel of Thomas as if they had value. It is the secret words which formed the Sayings that have great value but only when placed back into the Gospel of John revealing the information they were originally created from or created for.

Jesus said, if a blind man leads a blind man: He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not.1(10-11) + both of them: But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:1(12) + fall into a pit: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.1(13)


Note: Jesus said, if a blind man leads a blind man: He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not.1(10-11)

     Deuteronomy 18(9-15): When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations. There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee. Thou shalt be perfect with the LORD thy God. For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened unto observers of times, and unto diviners: but as for thee, the LORD thy God hath not suffered thee so to do. The LORD thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken;

     Deuteronomy 31(28-30): Gather unto me all the elders of your tribes, and your officers, that I may speak these words in their ears, and call heaven and earth to record against them. For I know that after my death ye will utterly corrupt yourselves, and turn aside from the way which I have commanded you; and evil will befall you in the latter days; because ye will do evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger through the work of your hands. And Moses spake in the ears of all the congregation of Israel the words of this song, until they were ended.

     Isaiah 66(1-5): Thus saith the LORD, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest? For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word. He that killeth an ox is as if he slew a man; he that sacrificeth a lamb, as if he cut off a dog’s neck; he that offereth an oblation, as if he offered swine’s blood; he that burneth incense, as if he blessed an idol [after the final passover - Saturday/Sabbath 15th Day (Jesus the Lamb of God)]. Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighted in their abominations. I also will choose their delusions [after the destruction of Jerusalem and its Temple], and will bring their fears upon them; because when I [Jesus] called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not. Hear the word of the LORD, ye that tremble at his word; Your brethren that hated you, that cast you out for my name’s sake, said, Let the LORD be glorified: but he shall appear to your joy, and they shall be ashamed.

     John 5(39-47): Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life. I receive not honour from men. But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you. I [Mother] am come in my Father’s name [Jesus/Adam], and ye receive me [the Son] not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive. How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only? Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one [Nicodemus] that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye [the Pharisees] trust. For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me [Jesus]: for he wrote of me [Eve]. But if ye believe not his writings [Nicodemus’ the same Moses/Isaiah], how shall ye believe my words [Jesus/Eve the Mother/Son]?


Note: both of them: But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:1(12)

     Thomas 83(22) Part 3 of Chapter 13: in the image of the light of the Father: Now I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe that I am he. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that receiveth whomsoever I [Mother] send receiveth me [Jesus]; and he that receiveth me [Jesus] receiveth him [Lord Adam] that sent me [Lord Eve].13(19-20)

     Thomas 37(34-1) Part 5 of Chapter 1: then shall you behold the Son of the Living: And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him. And I [John] knew him [Jesus] not: but he [the LORD] that sent me [Aaron] to baptize with water, the same [Adam] said unto me [Abel], Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same [Eve] is he [Jesus] which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost. And I [John the same Abel/Aaron] saw, and bare record that this [Jesus/Eve] is the Son of God.1(32-34)

     Thomas 85(29-30) Part 1 of Chapter 13: Jesus said, Adam: For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father [Lord Adam] which sent me [Lord Eve], he gave me a commandment, what I [Mother] should say, and what I [Son] should speak. And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I [the Son] speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me [the Mother], so I [the LORD] speak.12(49-50)

     Thomas 22(28-34) Part 4 of Chapter 5: and when you make the male and the female into a single one: And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me.5(37t) + so that the male will be male: Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.5(37b) + and the female not be female: And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom [the Mother - Lord Eve] he [the Father - Lord Adam] hath sent, him [the Son - Lord Jesus/Eve] ye believe not.5(38) + when you make eyes in the place of eyes and hands in the place of hands and feet in the place of feet: Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life. I receive not honour from men. But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you.5(39-42) + and an image in the place of an image: I [Mother] am come in my Father's name [Jesus/Adam], and ye receive me [the Son] not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.5(43)

     Thomas 61(28-31) Part 1 of Chapter 14: Jesus said: And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.14(4) + to her: Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?14(5) + I am: Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life:14(6t) + he who is from the same: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.14(6b) + to me was given from the things of my Father: If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also:14(7t) + Salome [Lord Eve/Jesus - the Mother] said: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.14(7b) + I am: Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us.14(8) + thy disciple: Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip?14(9t) + Jesus: he that hath seen me [Lord Jesus/Eve - the Son] hath seen the Father;14(9c) + said to her: and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?14(9b)


Note: fall into a pit: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.1(13)

     John 17(13-26): And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves. I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth. Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me. Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world. O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me. And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.

     Isaiah 38(17-22): Behold, for peace I had great bitterness: but thou hast in love to my soul delivered it from the pit of corruption; for thou hast cast all my sins behind thy back. For the grave cannot praise thee, death can not celebrate thee: they that go down into the pit cannot hope for thy truth. The living, the living, he shall praise thee, as I do this day: the father to the children shall make known thy truth. The LORD was ready to save me: therefore we will sing my songs to the stringed instruments all the days of our life in the house of the LORD. For Isaiah had said, Let them take a lump of figs, and lay it for a plaister upon the boil, and he shall recover. Hezekiah also had said, What is the sign that I shall go up to the house of the LORD?

     Psalm 28(1-9): Unto thee will I cry, O LORD my rock; be not silent to me: lest, if thou be silent to me, I become like them that go down into the pit. Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry unto thee, when I lift up my hands toward the holy oracle. Draw me not away with the wicked, and with the workers of iniquity, which speak peace to their neighbours, but mischief is in their hearts. Give them according to their deeds, and according to the wickedness of their endeavours: give them after the work of their hands; render to them their desert. Because they regard not the works of the LORD, nor the operation of his hands, he shall destroy them, and not build them up. Blessed be the LORD, because he hath heard the voice of my supplications. The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him. The LORD is their strength, and he is the saving strength of his anointed. Save thy people, and bless thine inheritance: feed them also, and lift them up for ever.

     Psalm 143(7-12): Hear me speedily, O LORD: my spirit faileth: hide not thy face from me, lest I be like unto them that go down into the pit. Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning; for in thee do I trust: cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto thee. Deliver me, O LORD, from mine enemies: I flee unto thee to hide me. Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my God: thy spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness. Quicken me, O LORD, for thy name’s sake: for thy righteousness’ sake bring my soul out of trouble. And of thy mercy cut off mine enemies, and destroy all them that afflict my soul: for I am thy servant.

     Psalm 40(1-3): I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.


Scriptural Parallels and Echoes

The second thief and liar - Matthew 15(10-20) - The second false gospel

And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand: Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man [taken from Thomas Saying 14(24-27) Part 1 of Chapter 12]. Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying? But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up [taken from Thomas Saying 40(13-15) Part 1 of Chapter 1]. Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch [taken from Thomas Saying 34(18-20) Part 3 of Chapter 1]. Then answered Peter and said unto him, Declare unto us this parable [impossible because the sayings themselves have no value except for the secret words which formed them]. And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding? Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught? But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies: These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashed hands defileth not a man [created from Thomas Saying 14(19-27) Part 1 of Chapter 12 & Thomas Saying 45(1-5) Part 6 of Chapter 8].

The third thief and liar - Luke 6(39-45) - The third false gospel

And he spake a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch [taken from Thomas Saying 34(18-20) Part 3 of Chapter 1]? The disciple is not above his master: but every one that is perfect shall be as his master. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but perceivest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Either how canst thou say to thy brother, Brother, let me pull out the mote that is in thine eye, when thou thyself beholdest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, cast out first the beam out of thine own eye, and then shalt thou see clearly to pull out the mote that is in thy brother’s eye [taken from Thomas Saying 26(12-17) Part 8 of Chapter 6]. For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. For every tree is known by his own fruit [created from Thomas Saying 43(21-26) Part 4 of Chapter 8]. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes [taken from Thomas Saying 45(31-33) Part 6 of Chapter 8]. A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh [taken from Thomas Saying 45(34-5) Part 6 of Chapter 8].

Note: The Sayings contained in the Gospel of Thomas have no value except for keeping the secret words which formed them in a specific order. The Synoptic Gospel writers are not only thieves but also liars because they used many of the Sayings (whole/parts) from the Gospel of Thomas as if they had value. It is the secret words which formed the Sayings that have great value but only when placed back into the Gospel of John revealing the information they were originally created from or created for.


Thomas (34) End - Thomas (28) Begin

END: both of them: But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:1(12) + fall into a pit: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.1(13) BEGIN: Jesus said, I took my stand: But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:1(12) + in the midst of the world: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.1(13)

(28) Jesus said: I took my stand in the midst of the world21 and in flesh I appeared to them;22 I found them all drunk, I found none23 among them athirst. And my soul was afflicted24 for the sons of men, because they are blind25 in their heart and do not see26 that empty they have come into the world27 (and that) empty they seek to go out of the world again.28 But now they are drunk.29 When they have shaken off their wine, then will they30 repent.

The Secret Words of Thomas (28) were created from John 1(12-23)

Jesus said, I took my stand: But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:1(12) + in the midst of the world: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.1(13) + and in flesh I appeared to them: And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.1(14) + I found them all drunk: John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me.1(15) + I found none among them athirst: And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.1(16) + and my soul was afflicted for the sons of man: For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.1(17) + because they are blind in their heart: No man hath seen God at any time;1(18t) + and do not see: the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.1(18b) + that empty they have come into the world: And this is the record of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art thou?1(19) + and that empty they seek to go out of the world again: And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, I am not the Christ.1(20) + but now they are drunk: And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias? And he saith, I am not. Art thou that prophet? And he answered, No.1(21) + when they have shaken off their wine: Then said they unto him, Who art thou? that we may give an answer to them that sent us.1(22t) + then will they repent: What sayest thou of thyself? He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias.1(22b-23)


Note: and in flesh I appeared to them: And the Word [the LORD] was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his [Adam's/Man's] glory, the glory [Woman/Eve] as the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.1(14) + I found them all drunk: John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He [Jesus] that cometh after me [John] is preferred before me: for he [Lord Eve] was before me [Abel].1(15) - because they are blind in their heart: No man hath seen God at any time;1(18t) + and do not see: the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.1(18b)

     Genesis 2(23-24): And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

     Genesis 3(20): And Adam [the Father of all living] called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.

     Genesis 4(1-2t): And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD. And she again bare his brother Abel.

     Genesis 4(25): And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew.

     Thomas 37(33) Part 5 of Chapter 1: as the little children: This is he of whom I [John the same Abel/Aaron] said, After me [John - born of woman] cometh a man [Jesus - born of woman] which is preferred before me [Aaron - born of woman]: for he [Lord Eve - the Mother of all living - not born of woman] was before me [Abel - born of woman].1(30)

     Thomas 40(13-14) Part 1 of Chapter 1: Jesus said: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.1(1) + a vine has been planted: The same [Lord Eve] was in the beginning with God [Lord Adam].1(2)


Note: I found them all drunk: John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He [Jesus] that cometh after me [John] is preferred before me: for he [Lord Eve] was before me [Abel].1(15)

     Thomas 13(3-7) Part 2 of Chapter 10: be capable of saying whom thou art like: the works that I do in my Father’s name, they bear witness of me:10(25b) + Jesus said, I am: But ye believe not,10(26t) + not thy Master: because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.10(26b) + because thou hast drunk thou hast become drunk: My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:10(27) + from the bubbling spring: And I give unto them eternal life;10(28t) + which I have measured out: and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.10(28b) + and he took him: My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. I and my Father are one.10(29-30)


Note: and my soul was afflicted for the sons of man: For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.1(17)

     Isaiah 53(4-7): Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.

     Thomas 37(34-1) Part 5 of Chapter 1: then shall you behold the Son of the Living: And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him. And I [John] knew him [Jesus] not: but he [the LORD] that sent me [Aaron] to baptize with water, the same [Adam] said unto me [Abel], Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same [Eve] is he [Jesus] which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost. And I [John the same Abel/Aaron] saw, and bare record that this [Jesus/Eve] is the Son of God.1(32-34)

     Isaiah 53(10-12): Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand. He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities. Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.


Note: and my soul was afflicted for the sons of man: For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.1(17)

     John 17(1-26): These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. And now, O Father, glorify me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was. I have manifested thy name [Jesus/Adam] unto the men [the chosen 11 disciples] which thou gavest me out of the world [the sons of man]: thine they were [the sons of God], and thou gavest them me [the sons of man/the sons of God]; and they have kept thy word. Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee. For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me. I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine. And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them. And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thy own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are. While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thine name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition [the chosen 12 minus one]; that the scripture might be fulfilled. And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves. I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth. Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me. Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world. O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me. And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them. [Note: The words ‘Jesus Christ’ are only given 2 times in the entire Gospel according to John - John 1(17) and John 17(3)]


Note: because they are blind in their heart: No man hath seen God at any time;1(18t) + and do not see: the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.1(18b)

     Isaiah 6(8-10): Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me. And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not. Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed.

     John 6(45-46): It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me. Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father.

     Isaiah 54(11-15): O thou afflicted, tossed with tempest, and not comforted, behold, I will lay thy stones with fair colours, and lay thy foundation with sapphires. And I will make thy windows of agates, and thy gates of carbuncles, and all thy borders of pleasant stones. And all thy children shall be taught of the LORD; and great shall be the peace of thy children. In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near thee. Behold, they shall surely gather together, but not by me: whosoever shall gather together against thee shall fall for thy sake.


Note: and that empty they seek to go out of the world again: And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, I am not the Christ.1(20)

     John 3(25-28): Then there arose a question between some of John’s disciples and the Jews about purifying. And they came unto John, and said unto him, Rabbi, he that was with thee beyond Jordan, to whom thou barest witness, behold, the same baptizeth, and all men come to him. John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven. Ye yourselves bear me witness, that I said, I am not the Christ, but that I am sent before him.

     John 8(34-36): Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever. If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

     Isaiah 43(25): I [Father], even I [Mother], am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins.

     Isaiah 55(6-7): Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.

END: when they have shaken off their wine: Then said they unto him, Who art thou? that we may give an answer to them that sent us.1(22t) + then will they repent: What sayest thou of thyself?

(37) His disciples said: When27 wilt Thou be revealed to us and when28 will we see Thee? Jesus said: When29 you take off your clothing without30 being ashamed, and take your clothes31 and put them under your feet32 as the little children and33 tread on them, then [shall you behold]34 the Son of the Living (One) and you shall not fear.1 [Lines 30-31: Or: "when you take off your shame"]

The Secret Words of Thomas (37) were created from John 1(22-37)

His disciples said: Then said they unto him, Who art thou?1(22t) + when wilt thou be revealed to us: that we may give an answer to them that sent us. What sayest thou of thyself? He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias.1(22b-23) + and when will we see thee: And they which were sent were of the Pharisees.1(24) + Jesus said: And they asked him, and said unto him, Why baptizest thou then, if thou be not that Christ, nor Elias, neither that prophet?1(25) + when you take off your clothing without being ashamed: John answered them, saying, I baptize with water: but there standeth one among you, whom ye know not; He it is, who coming after me is preferred before me, whose shoe's latchet I am not worthy to unloose.1(26-27) + and take them: These things were done in Bethabara beyond Jordan, where John was baptizing.1(28) + and put them under your feet: The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.1(29) + as the little children: This is he of whom I said, After me cometh a man which is preferred before me: for he was before me.1(30) + and tread on them: And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water.1(31) + then shall you behold the Son of the Living: And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him. And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost. And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God.1(32-34) + and you shall not fear: Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples; And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God! And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus.1(35-37)


Note: His [Moses’] disciples said: Then said they unto him [John], Who art thou?1(22t) - and when will we see thee: And they which were sent were of the Pharisees [Moses’ disciples].1(24)

     John 9(26-34): Then said they to him again, What did he to thee? how opened he thine eyes? He answered them, I have told you [the Pharisees] already, and ye did not hear: wherefore would ye hear it again? will ye also be his disciples? Then they reviled him, and said, Thou art his [Jesus’] disciple; but we are Moses’ disciples. We know that God spake unto Moses: as for this fellow, we know not from whence he is. The man answered and said unto them, Why herein is a marvellous thing, that ye know not from whence he is, and yet he hath opened mine eyes. Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth. Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was born blind. If this man were not of God, he could do nothing. They answered and said unto him, Thou wast altogether born in sins, and dost thou teach us? And they cast him out.

     John 3(25-28): Then there arose a question between some of John’s disciples and the Jews [Moses’ disciples] about purifying. And they came unto John, and said unto him, Rabbi, he that was with thee beyond Jordan, to whom thou barest witness, behold, the same baptizeth, and all men come to him. John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven. Ye yourselves bear me witness, that I said, I am not the Christ, but that I am sent before him.


Note: His [Moses’] disciples said: Then said they [the Pharisees/the Jews] unto him [John], Who art thou?1(22t)

     John 1(19) & (24): And this is the record of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art thou?1(19) And they which were sent were of the Pharisees.1(24)

     Thomas 43(20-21) Part 4 of Chapter 8: His [Moses’] disciples said to him [Jesus], who art thou: Then said they [the Pharisees/the Jews] unto him [Jesus], Who art thou?8(25t) + that thou: And Jesus saith unto them, Even the same that I said unto you from the beginning.8(25b)

     John 5(45-47): Do not think that I [Mother] will accuse you to the Father: there is one [Nicodemus] that accuseth you [the Pharisees/the Jews], even Moses, in whom ye trust. For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me [Jesus]: for he wrote of me [Eve]. But if ye believe not his writings [Nicodemus’ the same Moses/Isaiah], how shall ye believe my words [Jesus/Eve the Mother/Son]?


Note: Jesus said: And they asked him, and said unto him, Why baptizest thou then [Jesus said], if thou be not that Christ, nor Elias, neither that prophet?1(25)

     John 1(32-34): And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him. And I [John] knew him [Jesus] not: but he [the LORD] that sent me [Aaron] to baptize with water, the same [Adam] said unto me [Abel], Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same [Eve] is he [Jesus] which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost. And I [John the same Abel/Aaron] saw, and bare record that this [Jesus/Eve] is the Son of God.1(32-34)

     Thomas 85(29-30) Part 1 of Chapter 13: Jesus said, Adam: For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father [Lord Adam] which sent me [Lord Eve], he gave me a commandment, what I [Mother] should say, and what I [Son] should speak. And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I [the Son] speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me [the Mother], so I [the LORD] speak.12(49-50)

     Thomas 46(6) Part 7 of Chapter 8: Jesus said, from Adam: Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that thou hast a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayest, If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death.8(52)


Note: when you take off your clothing without being ashamed: John answered them, saying, I baptize with water: but there standeth one [Nicodemus] among you [the Pharisees], whom ye know not [Nicodemus the same Noah/Moses]; He [Noah] it is, who coming after me [Abel] is preferred before me [John], whose [Moses’] shoe's latchet I [Aaron] am not worthy to unloose.1(26-27)

     Exodus 3(3-6): And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt. And when the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I. And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground. Moreover he said, I am the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. And Moses hid his face; for he was afraid to look upon God.

     Exodus 32(19-25): And it came to pass, as soon as he came nigh unto the camp, that he saw the calf, and the dancing: and Moses' anger waxed hot, and he cast the tables out of his hands, and brake them beneath the mount. And he took the calf which they had made, and burnt it in the fire, and ground it to powder, and strawed it upon the water, and made the children of Israel drink of it. And Moses said unto Aaron [Abel/Aaron the same John], What did this people unto thee, that thou hast brought so great a sin upon them? And Aaron said, Let not the anger of my lord wax hot: thou knowest the people, that they are set on mischief. For they said unto me, Make us gods, which shall go before us: for as for this Moses [Noah/Moses/Isaiah the same Nicodemus], the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him. And I said unto them, Whosoever hath any gold, let them break it off. So they gave it me: then I cast it into the fire, and there came out this calf. And when Moses saw that the people were naked; (for Aaron had made them naked unto their shame among their enemies:)

     John 1(14-15): And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me.

     John 1(29-30): The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. This is he of whom I said, After me cometh a man which is preferred before me: for he was before me.

     John 1(26-27): John answered them [Jesus is not present], saying, I baptize with water: but there standeth one [Nicodemus] among you [the Pharisees], whom ye know not [Nicodemus the same Noah/Moses]; He [Noah] it is, who coming after me [Abel] is preferred before me [John - he does not say "for he was before me"], whose ]Moses’] shoe's latchet I [Aaron] am not worthy to unloose.


Note: and take them: These things were done in Bethabara beyond Jordan, where John was baptizing.1(28)

     Numbers 32(1-5): Now the children of Reuben and the children of Gad had a very great multitude of cattle: and when they saw the land of Jazer, and the land of Gilead, that, behold, the place was a place for cattle; The children of Gad and the children of Reuben came and spake unto Moses, and to Eleazar the priest, and unto the princes of the congregation, saying, Ataroth, and Dibon, and Jazer, and Nimrah, and Heshbon, and Elealeh, and Shebam, and Nebo, and Beon, Even the country which the LORD smote before the congregation of Israel, is a land for cattle, and thy servants have cattle: Wherefore, said they, if we have found grace in thy sight, let this land be given unto thy servants for a possession, and bring us not over Jordan.

     Numbers 32(28-33): So concerning them Moses commanded Eleazar the priest, and Joshua the son of Nun, and the chief fathers of the tribes of the children of Israel: And Moses said unto them, If the children of Gad and the children of Reuben will pass with you over Jordan, every man armed to battle, before the LORD, and the land shall be subdued before you; then ye shall give them the land of Gilead for a possession: But if they will not pass over with you armed, they shall have possessions among you in the land of Canaan. And the children of Gad and the children of Reuben answered, saying, As the LORD hath said unto thy servants, so will we do. We will pass over armed before the LORD into the land of Canaan, that the possession of our inheritance on this side Jordan may be our’s. And Moses gave unto them, even to the children of Gad, and to the children of Reuben, and unto half the tribe of Manasseh the son of Joseph, the kingdom of Sihon king of the Amorites, and the kingdom of Og king of Bashan, the land, with the cities thereof in the coasts, even the cities of the country round about.

     John 11(49-52): And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest that same year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all, Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not. And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation; And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad.

     John 10(14-16): I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine. As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep. And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.

     Thomas 13(30-31) Part 2 of Chapter 10: Jesus said to his disciples: And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.10(16)


Note: and take them: These things were done in Bethabara beyond Jordan, where John was baptizing.1(28)

     Thomas 35(22) Part 2 of Chapter 1: and take him: The same [Abel/Aaron/John] came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.1(7-8)

     Thomas 13(3-7) Part 2 of Chapter 10: be capable of saying whom thou art like: the works that I do in my Father’s name, they bear witness of me:10(25b) + Jesus said, I am: But ye believe not,10(26t) + not thy Master: because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.10(26b) + because thou hast drunk thou hast become drunk: My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:10(27) + from the bubbling spring: And I give unto them eternal life;10(28t) + which I have measured out: and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.10(28b) + and he took him: My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them [Lazarus the same Enoch/Elijah] out of my Father’s hand. I and my Father are one.10(29-30)


Note: and put them under your feet: The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.1(29)

     John 13(1-13): Now before the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew that his hour was come that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end. And supper being ended, the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to betray him; Jesus knowing that the Father hath given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God; He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself. After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded. Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and Peter saith unto him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet? Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter. Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me. Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head. Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all. For he knew who should betray him; therefore said he, Ye are not all clean. So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you? Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am.

     Psalm 110(1): The LORD [Lord Adam - the Father] said unto my Lord [Lord Eve - the Mother], Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.

     Genesis 3(14-16): And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heal. Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception, in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.


Note: and put them under your feet: The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.1(29)

     Psalm 110(1): The LORD [Lord Adam - the Father] said unto my Lord [Lord Eve - the Mother], Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.

     Exodus 32(30-35): And it came to pass on the morrow, that Moses said unto the people, Ye have sinned a great sin: and now I will go up unto the LORD; peradventure I shall make an atonement for your sin. And Moses returned unto the LORD, and said, Oh, this people have sinned a great sin, and have made them gods of gold. Yet now, if thou wilt forgive their sin–; and if not, blot me, I pray thee, out of thy book which thou hast written. And the LORD said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book. Therefore now go, lead the people unto the place of which I have spoken unto thee: behold, mine Angel shall go before thee: nevertheless in the day when I visit I will visit their sin upon them. And the LORD plagued the people, because they made the calf, which Aaron made.

     Isaiah 61(1-3): The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.

     John 9(24-41): Then again called they the man that was blind, and said unto him, Give God the praise: we know that this man is a sinner. He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or no, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see. Then said they to him again, What did he to thee? how opened he thine eyes? He answered them, I have told you already, and ye did not hear: wherefore would ye hear it again? will ye also be his disciples? Then they reviled him, and said, Thou art his disciple; but we are Moses’ disciples. We know that God spake unto Moses: as for this fellow, we know not from whence he is. The man answered and said unto them, Why herein is a marvellous thing, that ye know not from whence he is, and yet he hath opened mine eyes. Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth. Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was born blind. If this man were not of God, he could do nothing. They answered and said unto him, Thou wast altogether born in sins, and dost thou teach us? And they cast him out. Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God? He answered and said, Who is he, Lord, that I may believe on him? And Jesus said unto him, Thou [blind man/Abraham] hast both seen him, and it is he that talketh with thee. And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him. And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind. And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard these words, and said unto him, Are we blind also? Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth.

     John 15(18-27): If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep your’s also. But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me. If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloke for their sin. He that hateth me hateth my Father also. If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father. But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause. But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me: And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.

     Deuteronomy 31(28-30): Gather unto me all the elders of your tribes, and your officers, that I may speak these words in their ears, and call heaven and earth to record against them. For I know that after my death ye will utterly corrupt yourselves, and turn aside from the way which I have commanded you; and evil will befall you in the latter days; because you will do evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger through the work of your hands. And Moses spake in the ears of all the congregation of Israel the words of this song, until they were ended.


Note: as the little children: This is he of whom I [John the same Abel/Aaron] said, After me [John - born of woman] cometh a man [Jesus - born of woman] which is preferred before me [Aaron - born of woman]: for he [Lord Eve - the Mother of all living - not born of woman] was before me [Abel - born of woman].1(30)

     Isaiah 8(18-20): Behold, I and the children whom the LORD hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the LORD of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion. And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead? To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

     Genesis 3(20): And Adam [the Father of all living] called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.

     Genesis 4(1-2t): And Adam [the Father of all living - not born of woman] knew Eve [the Mother of all living - not born of woman] his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain [born of woman], and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD. And she again bare his brother Abel [born of woman].

     Genesis 4(9-10): And the LORD [the Father] said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother’s keeper? And he [the Mother] said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother’s blood crieth unto me from the ground.

     Genesis 4(25-26): And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth [born of woman]: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew. And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos [born of woman]: then began men to call upon [Adam] the name of the LORD.

     Genesis 4(25): And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth [born of woman]: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew.

     Thomas 9(6-8) Part 1 of Chapter 10: others fell on the rock: And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice. And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.10(4-5) + and did not: This parable spake Jesus unto them: but they understood not what things they were which he spake unto them.10(6) + strike root in the earth: Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers [should read: and liars]: but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.10(7-9)


Note: as the little children: This is he of whom I [John the same Abel/Aaron] said, After me [John - born of woman] cometh a man [Jesus - born of woman] which is preferred before me [Aaron - born of woman]: for he [Lord Eve - the Mother of all living - not born of woman] was before me [Abel].1(30)

     Isaiah 8(16-20): Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples. And I will wait upon the LORD, that hideth his face from the house of Jacob, and I will look for him. Behold, I and the children whom the LORD hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the LORD of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion. And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead? To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

     Genesis 3(20): And Adam [the Father of all living] called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.

     Thomas 63(6-7) Part 5 of Chapter 13: and plant: Little children, yet a little while I am with you. Ye shall seek me: and as I said unto the Jews, Whither I go, ye cannot come; so now I say to you.13(33) + and fill my storehouses with new fruit: A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.13(34-35) + so that I lack nothing: Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, whither goest thou? Jesus answered him, Whither I go, thou canst not follow me now; but thou shalt follow me afterwards.13(36)

     Thomas 21(34-1) Part 6 of Chapter 3: Mary said to Jesus: And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.3(19-20) + whom are thy disciples like: But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.3(21) + He said, they are like little children: After these things came Jesus and his disciples into the land of Judaea; and there he tarried with them, and baptized.3(22)


Note: and tread on them: And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water.1(31)

     Exodus 32(30-35): And it came to pass on the morrow, that Moses said unto the people, Ye have sinned a great sin: and now I will go up unto the LORD; peradventure I shall make an atonement for your sin. And Moses returned unto the LORD, and said, Oh, this people have sinned a great sin, and have made them gods of gold. Yet now, if thou wilt forgive their sin–; and if not, blot me, I pray thee, out of thy book which thou hast written. And the LORD said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book. Therefore now go, lead the people unto the place of which I have spoken unto thee: behold, mine Angel shall go before thee: nevertheless in the day when I visit I will visit their sin upon them. And the LORD plagued the people, because they made the calf, which Aaron made.

     Isaiah 63(1-6): Who is this that cometh from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? this that is glorious in his apparel, travelling in the greatness of his strength? I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save. Wherefore art thou red in thine apparel, and thy garments like him that treadeth in the winefat? I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the people there was none with me: for I will tread them in mine anger, and trample them in my fury; and their blood shall be sprinkled upon my garments, and I will stain all my raiment. For the day of vengeance is in mine heart, and the year of my redeemed is come. And I looked, and there was none to help; and I wondered that there was none to uphold: therefore mine own arm brought salvation unto me; and my fury, it upheld me. And I will tread down the people in mine anger, and make them drunk in my fury, and I will bring down their strength to the earth.


Note: and tread on them: And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water.1(31) + then shall you behold the Son of the Living: And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him. And I [John] knew him [Jesus] not: but he [the LORD] that sent me [Aaron] to baptize with water, the same [Adam] said unto me [Abel], Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same [Eve] is he [Jesus] which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost. And I [John the same Abel/Aaron] saw, and bare record that this [Jesus/Eve] is the Son of God.1(32-34)

     Thomas 22(25-28) Part 4 of Chapter 5: and when you make the inner [Abel] as the outer [John]: There is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he [Abel] witnesseth of me is true. Ye sent unto John, and he bare witness unto the truth.5(32-33) + and the outer [John] as the inner [Abel/Aaron]: But I receive not testimony from man [John]: but these things I say, that ye might be saved. He [Aaron] was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light.5(34-35) + and the above as the below: But I have greater witness than that of John [Abel/Aaron/John]: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.5(36)

     Malachi 3(1-6): Behold, I will send my messenger [Abel/Aaron the same John], and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger [Noah/Moses/Isaiah the same Nicodemus] of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts. But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner’s fire, and like fullers’ soap: And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness. Then shall the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasant unto the LORD, as in the days of old, and as in former years. And I will come near to you to judgement; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger from his right, and fear not me, saith the LORD of hosts. For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.


Note: then shall you behold the Son of the Living: And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him. And I [John] knew him [Jesus] not: but he [the LORD] that sent me [Aaron] to baptize with water, the same [Adam] said unto me [Abel], Upon whom thou shalt see the Sprit descending, and remaining on him, the same [Eve] is he [Jesus] which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost. And I [John the same Abel/Aaron] saw, and bare record that this [Jesus/Eve] is the Son of God1(32-34)

     Thomas 53(21-23) Part 4 of Chapter 7: their mother [Lord Eve/Jesus]: are ye angry at me, because I [the Mother/Son] have made a man every whit whole on the sabbath day?7(23b) + but the true circumcision in spirit has become profitable in every way: Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.7(24)

     John 5(25-27): Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live. For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself; And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man.

     John 6(57-58): As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me. This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.

     John 8(41-42): Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God. Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.

     John 10(24-30): Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly. Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father’s name, they bear witness of me. But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. I and my Father are one.

     Deuteronomy 5(26): For who is there of all flesh, that hath heard the voice of the living God speaking out of the midst of the fire, as we have, and lived?


Note: and you shall not fear: Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples [Andrew & Nicodemus who became two of Jesus’ chosen twelve]; And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God! And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus.1(35-37)

     John 14(25-29): These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you. But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I. And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe.

     John 20(19-23): Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you. And when he had so said, he shewed unto them his hands and his side. Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the Lord. Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you. And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost: Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained.

     Thomas 111(8) Part 7 of Chapter 19: shall see neither death nor fear: And from that hour that disciple [Lazarus] took her [Salome the mother of Jesus] unto his own home [in the town of Bethany where the disciples received the Holy Ghost].19(27b)

     John 20(26): And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you [see, the disciples no longer had any fear after having received the Holy Ghost].

The Secret Words of Thomas (19) were created from John 1(32-51end)+2(1-2)

Jesus said, blessed is he who was before: And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him. And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost. And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God.1(32-34) + he came into being: Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples; And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God!1(35-36) + if you become disciples to me: And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus. Then Jesus turned, and saw them following, and saith unto them, What seek ye? They said unto him, Rabbi, (which is to say, being interpreted, Master,) where dwellest thou? He saith unto them, Come and see. They came and saw where he dwelt, and abode with him that day: for it was about the tenth hour.1(37-39) + and hear: One of the two which heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother.1(40) + my words: He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ.1(41) + this stone: And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus beheld him, he said, Thou art Simon the son of Jona: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is by interpretation, A stone.1(42) + will minister to you: The day following Jesus would go forth into Galilee, and findeth Philip, and saith unto him, Follow me.1(43) + for you have five trees in paradise: Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph. And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, Come and see.1(44-46) + which are unmoved: Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and saith of him, Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!1(47) + in summer: Nathanael saith unto him, Whence knowest thou me? Jesus answered and said unto him, Before that Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig tree, I saw thee.1(48) + and in winter: Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel. Jesus answered and said unto him, Because I said unto thee, I saw thee under the fig tree, believest thou? thou shalt see greater things than these.1(49-50) + and their leaves do not fall: And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man [should read: the Sons of man].1(51) + whoever knows them: And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there:2(1) + will not taste death: And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage.2(2)


Note: these stones: And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus beheld him, he said, Thou art Simon the son of Jona: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is by interpretation, A stone.1(42) or: this stone: And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus beheld him, he said, Thou art Simon the son of Jona: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is by interpretation, A stone.1(42)


Note: John 1(35-45): Again the next day after [light/day - about the 10th hour] John stood, and two of his disciples [Andrew & Nicodemus]; And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God! And the two disciples [Andrew & Nicodemus] heard him speak, and they followed Jesus. Then Jesus turned, and saw them following, and saith unto them, What seek ye? They said unto him, Rabbi, (which is to say, being interpreted, Master,) where dwellest thou? He saith unto them, Come and see. They came [after the 12th hour (dark/night) - dusk] and saw where he dwelt, and abode with him that day [dark/night]: for it was about the tenth hour [light/day - when John stood with his two disciples]. One of the two [Andrew & Nicodemus] which heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother. He first findeth his own brother Simon [light/day], and saith unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ. And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus beheld him, he said, Thou art Simon the son of Jona: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is by interpretation, A stone. The day following [light/day] Jesus would go forth into Galilee, and findeth Philip, and saith unto him, Follow me. Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses [Moses/Nicodemus] in the law, and the prophets [Gospel according to John], did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.

     Thomas 58(9) Part 2 of Chapter 7: has found: not openly, but as it were in secret [after the 12th hour].7(10b)

     John 3(1-2): There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: The same [Nicodemus/Moses] came to Jesus by night [after the 12th hour], and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.

     John 7(50-52): Nicodemus saith unto them, (he that came to Jesus by night [after the 12th hour], being one of them [one of the two - Andrew & Nicodemus],) Doth our law judge any man, before it hear him, and know what he doeth? They answered and said unto him, Art thou also of Galilee? Search, and look: for out of Galilee ariseth no prophet.

     John 19(38-39): And after this Joseph of Arimathaea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews, besought Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus: and Pilate gave him leave. He came therefore, and took the body of Jesus. And there came also Nicodemus, which at the first [with Andrew, Simon Peter's brother] came to Jesus by night [after the 12th hour], and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about an hundred pound weight.

     John 11(9-10): Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in the day [light/day or natural day], he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light [truth] of this world. But if a man walk in the night [darkness/lies], he stumbleth, because there is no light [truth] in him. [Note: Day = sunset to sunrise - evening to morning + sunrise to sunset - morning to evening. Natural day (light/day) = sunrise to sunset - morning to evening which was divided into 12 hours (longer or shorter according to the season). Night (dark/night) = sunset to sunrise - evening to morning (evening begins at the close of the 12th hour). Also there is a short period of time after sunset/evening (dusk) and before sunrise/morning (dawn) when it is neither light nor dark.]

Note: The World Book Encyclopedia - 1961: SUNDIAL is the oldest known device for the measurement of time. It is based on the fact that the shadow of an object will move from one side of the object to the other as the sun moves from east to west during the day. The sundial is believed to have been used in Babylon at least as early as 2000 B.C. The earliest description of a sundial comes from Berossus, a Chaldean astronomer who lived about 300 B.C. His sundial was a hollow half-sphere, or dome, set with its edge flat and with a small bead fixed at the centre. During the day the shadow of the bead moved in a circular arc. This arc was divided into twelve equal parts. Thus, daylight was divided into twelve equal parts. They were called temporary hours because they changed with the seasons. Equal hours were decided upon about A.D. 1400, when clocks were invented. Few sundials were used after the 1700's.


Note: Jesus said, blessed is he who was before: And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him. And I [John] knew him [Jesus] not: but he [the LORD] that sent me [Aaron] to baptize with water, the same [Adam] said unto me [Abel], Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same [Eve] is he [Jesus] which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost. And I [John the same Abel/Aaron] saw, and bare record that this [Jesus/Eve] is the Son of God.1(32--34)

     John 1(19-23): And this is the record of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art thou? And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, I am not the Christ. And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias [Elijah]? And he saith, I am not [Lazarus is the same Enoch/Elijah]. Art thou that prophet [Moses]? And he answered, No [Nicodemus is the same Noah/Moses/Isaiah]. Then said they unto him, Who art thou? that we may give an answer to them that sent us. What sayest thou of thyself? He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias [Isaiah].

     John 5(39): Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.

     Thomas 35(22-23) Part 2 of Chapter 1: and take him: The same [Abel/Aaron/John] came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.1(7-8) + unless by force they bind his hands: That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.1(9)


Note: he came into being: Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples; And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God!1(35-36)

     Isaiah 53(1-10): Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed? For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation [Nicodemus the same Moses/Isaiah]? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken. And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth. Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.

     Thomas 85(30) Part 1 of Chapter 13: came into existence: Now before the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew that his hour was come that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end.13(1)


Note: he came into being: Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples [Andrew & Nicodemus]; And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God!1(35-36) + if you become disciples to me: And the two disciples [Andrew & Nicodemus] heard him speak, and they followed Jesus. Then Jesus turned, and saw them following, and saith unto them, What seek ye? They said unto him, Rabbi, (which is to say, being interpreted, Master,) where dwellest thou? He saith unto them, Come and see. They came [after the 12th hour (dark/night) - dusk] and saw where he dwelt, and abode with him that day [dark/night]: for it was about the tenth hour [(light/day) when John stood with his two disciples].1(37-39) + and hear: One of the two [Andrew & Nicodemus] which heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother.1(40)

     John 1(24-34): And they which were sent were of the Pharisees. And they asked him, and said unto him, Why baptizest thou then, if thou be not that Christ, nor Elias [Elijah], neither that prophet [Moses]? John answered them [Jesus is not present], saying, I baptize with water: but there standeth one [Nicodemus] among you [the Pharisees], whom ye know not [Nicodemus the same Noah/Moses]. He [Noah] it is, who coming after me [Abel] is preferred before me [John], whose [Moses’] shoe's latchet I [Aaron] am not worthy to unloose. These things were done in Bethabara beyond Jordan, where John was baptizing. The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. This is he of whom I said, After me [John] cometh a man which is preferred before me: for he [Lord Eve] was before me [Abel]. And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water. And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him. And I [John] knew him [Jesus] not: but he [the LORD] that sent me [Aaron] to baptize with water, the same [Adam] said unto me [Abel], Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same [Eve] is he [Jesus] which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost. And I [John the same Abel/Aaron] saw, and bare record that this [Jesus/Eve] is the Son of God.

     John 21(24/End): This is the disciple [Nicodemus] which testifieth of these things, and wrote these things: and we [the other chosen 10 disciples of Jesus] know that his [Nicodemus’ the same Noah/Moses/Isaiah] testimony is true. - The Gospel according to John [but secretly the Gospel according to Nicodemus]


Note: this stone: And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus beheld him [Simon Peter - the same Ham/Joshua], he said, Thou art Simon the son of Jona [Noah]: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is by interpretation, A stone.1(42)

     Joshua 24(22-28): And Joshua said unto the people, Ye are witnesses against yourselves that ye have chosen you the LORD, to serve him. And they said, We are witnesses. Now therefore put away, said he, the strange gods which are among you, and incline your heart unto the LORD God of Israel. And the people said unto Joshua, The LORD our God will we serve, and his voice will we obey. So Joshua made a covenant with the people that day, and set them a statute and an ordinance in Shechem. And Joshua wrote these words in the book of the law of God, and took a great stone, and set it up there under an oak, that was by the sanctuary of the LORD. And Joshua said unto all the people, Behold, this stone shall be a witness unto us; for it hath heard all the words of the LORD which he spake unto us: it shall be therefore a witness unto you, lest ye deny your God. So Joshua let the people depart, every man unto his inheritance.


Note: these stones: And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus beheld him [Simon Peter - the same Ham/Joshua], he said, Thou art Simon the son of Jona [Noah]: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is by interpretation, A stone.1(42)

     Joshua 4(1-8): And it came to pass, when all the people were clean passed over Jordan, that the LORD spake unto Joshua, saying, Take you twelve men out of the people, out of every tribe a man, And command ye them, saying, Take you hence out of the midst of Jordan, out of the place where the priests’ feet stood firm, twelve stones, and ye shall carry them over with you, and leave them in the lodging place, where ye shall lodge this night. Then Joshua called the twelve men, whom he had prepared of the children of Israel, out of every tribe a man: And Joshua said unto them, Pass over before the ark of the LORD your God into the midst of Jordan, and take you up every man of you a stone upon his shoulder, according unto the number of the tribes of the children of Israel: That this may be a sign among you, that when your children ask their fathers in time to come, saying, What mean ye by these stones? Then ye shall answer them, That the waters of Jordan were cut off before the ark of the covenant of the LORD; when it passed over Jordan, the waters of Jordan were cut off: and these stones shall be for a memorial unto the children of Israel for ever. And the children of Israel did so as Joshua commanded, and took up twelve stones out of the midst of Jordan, as the LORD spake unto Joshua, according to the number of the tribes of the children of Israel, and carried them over with them unto the place where they lodged, and laid them down there. And Joshua set up twelve stones in the midst of Jordan, in the place where the feet of the priests which bare the ark of the covenant stood: and they are there unto this day.

Note: will minister to you: The day following Jesus would go forth into Galilee, and findeth Philip, and saith unto him, Follow me.1(43)

     Thomas 61(30-31) Part 1 of Chapter 14: I am: Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us.14(8) + thy disciple: Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip?14(9t)


Note: for you [Jesus] have five [5] trees in paradise [Galilee]: Now [1] Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of [2] Andrew and [3] Peter. Philip findeth [4] Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom [5] Moses [Moses/Nicodemus] in the law, and the prophets [Gospel according to John], did write, Jesus of Nazareth [Galilee], the son of Joseph [of Arimathaea/not in Galilee]. And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, Come and see.1(44-46)

     John 12(20-21): And there were certain Greeks among them that came up to worship at the feast: The same came therefore to Philip, which was of Bethsaida of Galilee, and desired him, saying, Sir, we would see Jesus.

     John 21(2) There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two other of his disciples.

     John 7(50-52): Nicodemus saith unto them, (he that came to Jesus by night [after the 12th hour], being one of them [one of the two],) Doth our law judge any man, before it hear him, and know what he doeth? They answered and said unto him, Art thou also of Galilee? Search, and look: for out of Galilee ariseth no prophet [Jesus of Nazareth - Galilee].

     Thomas 68(21-24) Part 9 of Chapter 7: Jesus said, blessed are you: Nicodemus saith unto them, (he that came to Jesus by night [after the 12th hour], being one of them [one of the two - Andrew & Nicodemus],)7(50) + when you are hated: Doth our law judge any man, before it hear him, and know what he doeth?7(51) + and persecuted: They answered and said unto him, Art thou also of Galilee?7(52t) + and no place will be found: Search, and look: for out of Galilee ariseth no prophet.7(52b) + there where you have been: And every man went unto his own house [Nicodemus of Cana in Galilee].7(53) + persecuted: Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.8(1)

     Thomas 31(5-6) Part 8 of Chapter 4: Jesus said, no prophet: For Jesus himself testified, that a prophet hath no honour in his own country.4(44) + is acceptable: Then when he [Jesus of Nazareth in Galilee] was come into Galilee, the Galilaeans received him, having seen all the things that he did at Jerusalem at the feast: for they also went unto the feast.4(45) + in his [Nicodemus’] village: So Jesus came again into Cana of Galilee, where he made the water wine.4(46t)

     John 2(9-11): When the ruler of the feast [Nicodemus] had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom, And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now. This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.

     John 3(1-2): There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.

     Note: for you [Jesus] have five trees [Philip, Andrew, Simon Peter (Simon/Peter), Nathanael and Nicodemus] in paradise [Galilee]:


Note: for you have five trees in paradise: Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses [Moses/Nicodemus] in the law, and the prophets [Gospel according to John], did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph. And Nathanael saith unto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, Come and see.1(44-46)

     Thomas 88(8-9) Part 3 of Chapter 16: and the prophets: I have yet many things to say unto you [his disciples/the prophets], but ye cannot bear them now.16(12) + will come to you: Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth:16(13t) + and he will show you: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.16(13b-14)

     John 5(39): Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.

     John 6(41-42): The Jews then murmured at him, because he said, I am the bread which came down from heaven. And they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? how is it then that he saith, I came down from heaven?

     John 18(4-9): Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth, and said unto them, Whom see ye? They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am he. And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them. As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground. Then asked he them again, Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus answered, I have told you that I am he: if therefore ye seek me, let these go their way: That the saying might be fulfilled, which he spake, Of them which thou gavest me have I lost none.

     John 19(19-20): And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writing was, JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS. This title then read many of the Jews: for the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city: and it was written in Hebrew, and Greek, and Latin.

     John 21(24/End): This is the disciple [Nicodemus] which testifieth of these things, and wrote these things: and we [the other chosen 10 disciples of Jesus] know that his [Nicodemus’ the same Noah/Moses/Isaiah] testimony is true. - The Gospel according to John [but secretly the Gospel according to Nicodemus]


Note: which are unmoved: Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and saith of him, Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!1(47)

     Psalm 32(1-2): Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. Blessed is the man unto whom the LORD imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile.


Note: in summer: Nathanael saith unto him, Whence knowest thou me? Jesus answered and said unto him, Before that Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig tree, I saw thee.1(48) + and in winter: Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel. Jesus answered and said unto him, Because I said unto thee, I saw thee under the fig tree, believest thou? thou shalt see greater things than these [opening the eyes of the man who was blind from birth].1(49-50)

     Thomas 13(31-1) Part 2 of Chapter 10: and tell me whom I am like: There was a division therefore again among the Jews for these sayings.10(19) + Simon Peter said to him, thou art like a righteous angel: And many of them said, He hath a devil, and is mad; why hear ye him? Others said, These are not the words of him that hath a devil. Can a devil open the eyes of the blind?10(20-21) + Matthew said to him, thou art like a wise man of understanding: And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter. And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon’s porch.10(22-23)

     2 Samuel 7(12-17): And when thy days be fulfilled, and thou shalt sleep with thy fathers, I will set up thy seed after thee, which shall proceed out of thy bowels, and I will establish his kingdom. He shall build an house for my name, and I will stablish the throne of his kingdom for ever. I will be his father, and he shall be my son. If he commit iniquity, I will chasten him with the rod of men, and with the stripes of the children of men: But my mercy shall not depart away from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I put away before thee. And thine house and thy kingdom shall be established for ever before thee: thy throne shall be established for ever. According to all these words, and according to all this vision, so did Nathan speak unto David.

     Isaiah 9(6-7): For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given [Son of man/Son of God]: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.

     Note: The word winter is only used once in the entire Gospel according to John - Chapter 10(22) and only once in the entire Gospel according to Thomas - Saying 19(23).

     John 10(19-30): There was a division therefore again among the Jews for these sayings. And many of them said, He hath a devil, and is mad; why hear ye him? Others said, These are not the words of him that hath a devil. Can a devil open the eyes of the blind? And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter. And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon’s porch. Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly. Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father’s name, they bear witness of me. But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. I and my Father are one.

     John 21(2): There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee [James & Matthew], and two other of his disciples [Nicodemus & Lazarus].

     Note: Nathanael (one of the chosen twelve) is only mentioned in Chapter 1(45-51) and in Chapter 21(2) of the Gospel according to John.


Note: for you have five trees in paradise: Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph. And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, Come and see.1(44-46) - and their leaves do not fall: And he saith unto him [*Nathanael], Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God *ascending and *descending upon the Son of man [should read: the Sons of man - his disciples].1(51)

     John 14(25-29): These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you. But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I. And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe.

     John 15(25-27): But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause. But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me: And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.

     John 20(11-29): But Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping: and as she wept, she stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre, And seeth two angels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain. And they say unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? She saith unto them, Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him. And when she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus. Jesus [the Father] saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away. Jesus [the Mother] saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master. Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God. Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord, and that he had spoken these things unto her. Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples [*Nathanael being one of them] were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus [the Son] and stood in the midst [he descended], and saith unto them, Peace be unto you. And when he had so said, he shewed unto them his hands and his side. Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the Lord. Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you. And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost: Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained [*he then ascended again]. But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. The other disciples [*Nathanael being one of them] therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe. And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus [the Son], the doors being shut, and stood in the midst [*he descended again], and said, Peace be unto you. Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing. And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God. Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed [*he then ascended again].

     John 21(1-14): After these things Jesus shewed himself again to the disciples at the sea of Tiberias; and on this wise shewed he himself. There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two other of his disciples. Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a fishing. They say unto him, We also go with thee. They went forth, and entered into a ship immediately; and that night they caught nothing. But when the morning was now come, Jesus [Lord Eve the Mother] stood on the shore [*he descended again]: but the disciples knew not that it was Jesus. Then Jesus saith unto them, Children, have ye any meat? They answered him, No. And he said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and ye shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes. Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved saith unto Peter, It is the Lord. Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girt his fisher’s coat unto him, (for he was naked,) and did cast himself into the sea. And the other disciples came in a little ship; (for they were not far from land, but as it were two hundred cubits,) dragging the net with fishes. As soon then as they were come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid thereon, and bread. Jesus saith unto them, Bring of the fish which ye have now caught. Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land full of great fishes, an hundred and fifty and three: and for all there were so many, yet was not the net broken. Jesus saith unto them, Come and dine. And none of the disciples durst ask him, Who art thou? knowing that it was the Lord. Jesus then cometh, and taketh bread, and giveth them, and fish likewise. This is now the third time that Jesus shewed himself to his disciples (ascended, descended, ascended, descended, ascended, descended), after that he was risen from the dead. + John 21(15-22) [he then ascended again]

     Psalm 1(1-6): Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you. All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you. A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me, because I go to the Father.


Note: which are unmoved: Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and saith of him, Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!1(47) - and their leaves do not fall: And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man [should read: the Sons of man].1(51)

If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me [the Son of God - the Son of man] before it hated you [the sons of God - the sons of man]. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world [the sons of God], but I have chosen you out of the world [the sons of man], therefore the world hateh you [the sons of God - the sons of man]. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me [the Son of God - the Son of man], they will also persecute you [the sons of God - the sons of man]; if they have kept my saying, they will keep your’s also. But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me.

     Ezekiel 2(1-10)&3(1-4): And he said unto me, Son of man, stand upon thy feet, and I will speak unto thee. And the spirit entered into me when he spake unto me, and set me upon my feet, that I heard him that spake unto me. And he said unto me, Son of man, I send thee to the children of Israel, to a rebellious nation that hath rebelled against me: they and their fathers have transgressed against me, even unto this very day. For they are impudent children and stiffhearted. I do send thee unto them; and thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD. And they, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear, (for they are a rebellious house,) yet shall know that there hath been a prophet among them. And thou, son of man, be not afraid of them, neither be afraid of their words, though briers and thorns be with thee, and thou dost dwell among scorpions: be not afraid of their words, nor be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house. And thou shall speak my words unto them, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear: for they are most rebellious. But thou, son of man, hear what I say unto thee; Be not thou rebellious like that rebellious house: open thy mouth, and eat that I give thee. And when I looked, behold, an hand was sent unto me; and, lo, a roll of a book was therein; And he spread it before me; and it was written within and without: and there was written therein lamentations, and mourning, and woe.2(1-10) Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, eat that thou findest; eat this roll, and go speak unto the house of Israel. So I opened my mouth, and he caused me to eat that roll. And he said unto me, Son of man, cause thy belly to eat, and fill thy bowels with this roll that I give thee. Then did I eat it; and it was in my mouth as honey for sweetness. And he said unto me, Son of man, go, get thee unto the house of Israel, and speak with my words unto them.3(1-4) [Note: The Book of the Prophet Ezekiel - the same Nathanael - the son of God/the son of man]

Scriptural Parallels and Echoes

The second thief and liar - Matthew 3(9) - The second false gospel

And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham [created from Thomas Saying 19(20-21) Part 6 of Chapter 1].

The third thief and liar - Luke 3(8) - The third false gospel

Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance, and begin not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, That God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham [created from Thomas Saying 19(20-21) Part 6 of Chapter 1].

Note: The Sayings contained in the Gospel of Thomas have no value except for keeping the secret words which formed them in a specific order. The Synoptic Gospel writers are not only thieves but also liars because they used many of the Sayings (whole/parts) from the Gospel of Thomas as if they had value. It is the secret words which formed the Sayings that have great value but only when placed back into the Gospel of John revealing the information they were originally created from or created for.

     Genesis 9(8-17): And God spake unto Noah, and to his sons with him, saying, And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you; And with every living creature that is with you, of the fowl, of the cattle, and of every beast of the earth with you; from all that go out of the ark, to every beast of the earth. And I will establish my covenant with you; neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth. And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth. And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud: And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth. And God said unto Noah, This is the token of the covenant, which I have established between me and all flesh that is upon the earth.

     Exodus 34(8-10): And Moses made haste, and bowed his head toward the earth, and worshipped. And he said, If now I have found grace in thy sight, O Lord [Lord Adam], let my Lord [Lord Eve], I pray thee, go among us; for it is a stiffnecked people; and pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us for thine inheritance. And he said, Behold, I make a covenant: before all thy people I will do marvels, such as have not been done in all the earth, nor in any nation: and all the people among which thou [Moses/Nicodemus] art shall see the work of the LORD; for it is a terrible thing [cross/crucifixion] that I [Father] will do with thee [Mother/Son - Lord Jesus/Eve].

     Isaiah 59(20-21): And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the LORD. As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the LORD; My spirit that is upon thee, and my words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed’s seed, saith the LORD, from henceforth and for ever.

     John 5(39-47): Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life. I receive not honour from men. But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you. I [Mother] am come in my Father’s name [Jesus/Adam], and ye receive me [the Son] not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive. How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only? Do not think that I [Mother] will accuse you to the Father: there is one [Nicodenus] that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye [the Pharisees] trust. For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me [Jesus]: for he wrote of me [Eve]. But if ye believe not his [Nicodemus’ the same Moses/Isaiah] writings, how shall you believe my words [Jesus/Eve the Mother/Son]?

     Thomas 46(6) Part 7 of Chapter 8: Jesus said, from Adam: Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that thou hast a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayest, If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death.8(52)

     Thomas 85(29-30) Part 1 of Chapter 13: Jesus said, Adam: For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father [Lord Adam] which sent me [Lord Eve], he gave me a commandment, what I [Mother] should say, and what I [Son] should speak. And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I [the Son] speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me [the Mother], so I [the LORD] speak.12(49-50)

     Isaiah 43(8-13): Bring forth the blind people that have eyes, and the deaf that have ears. Let all the nations be gathered together, and let the people be assembled [for the final passover - Saturday/Sabbsth 15th Day (Jesus the Lamb od God)]: who among them can declare this [the future], and shew us former things [the past]? let them bring forth their witnesses, that they may be justified: or let them hear, and say, It is truth. Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant [Noah/Moses/Isaiah the same Nicodemus] whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me [Adam - the Father of all living - not born of woman] there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me [Eve - the Mother of all living - not born of woman]. I [Father], even I [Mother], am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour. I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, when there was no strange god among you: therefore ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, that I am God. Yea, before the day was I am he; and there is none that can deliver out of my hand: I will work, and who shall let it?

     Thomas 23(1-2) Part 5 of Chapter 5: Jesus said: How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honout that cometh from God only?5(44) + I shall choose you, one out of a thousand: Do not think that I [Mother] will accuse you to the Father: there is one [Nicodemus] that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye [the Pharisees] trust.5(45)

     Thomas 41(16-18) Part 6 of Chapter 4: whoever has in his hand: And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together.4(36) + to him shall be given: And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth.4(37) + and whoever does not have: I sent you [examples: John and Nicodemus] to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour:4(38t) + from him shall be taken: other men laboured, and ye [examples: John the same Abel/Aaron and Nicodemus the same Noah/Moses/Isaiah] are entered into their labours.4(38b)


Note: There are those who believe that there is a conflict between Genesis Chapter 1 (verses 24-31) and Genesis Chapter 2 (verses 7-8 & 18-25). Since I know that the Gospel of John contains the true End and that the End once unsealed reveals the Beginning, I know for a fact that no conflict exists. According to Genesis Chapters 1-5, God created the animals first and then God created man. This is the record which God had Moses write. Those who see a conflict are the ones who do not know who God is. Therefore, all they will see in Chapter 1 is that God created the animals and then man and in Chapter 2 God created man and then the animals. The following will not only open their eyes to the truth but also their understanding.

     Genesis 1(24-31): And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so. *And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good. **And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so. And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

     Genesis 2(7-8 & 18-25): And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.2(7-8)

And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him. *And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof. And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him. And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.2(18-25)

     Genesis 4(1-2): **And Adam [Lord Adam - the Father of all living - not born of woman - formed] knew Eve [Lord Eve - the Mother of all living - not born of woman] his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain [made - born of woman], and said, I [Lord Eve] have gotten a man from the LORD [Lord Adam]. And she again bare his brother Abel [made - born of woman]. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.

     Genesis 4(25-26): And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son [made - born of woman], and called his name Seth: For God [Lord Adam], said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew. And to Seth, to him also there was born a son [made - born of woman]; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon [Adam] the name of the LORD.

     Genesis 5(1-5): This is the book of the generations of Adam [Lord Adam]. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him; Male and female created he [Lord Eve] them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created. And Adam [Lord Adam] lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son [made - born of woman] in his own likeness, after his image; and called his name Seth: And the days of Adam after he had begotten Seth were eight hundred years: and he begat sons and daughters [born of woman]: And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years: and he died [*went to heaven*].

     Isaiah 44(24-28): Thus saith the LORD [Lord Adam - the Father], thy redeemer, and he [Lord Eve - the Mother] that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself; That frustrateth the tokens of the liars, and maketh diviners mad; that turneth wise men backward, and maketh their knowledge foolish; That confirmeth the word of his servant, and performeth the counsel of his messengers; that saith to Jerusalem, Thou shalt be inhabited; and to the cities of Judah, Ye shall be built, and I will raise up the decayed places thereof: That saith to the deep, Be dry, and I will dry up thy rivers: That saith of Cyrus, He is my shepherd, and shall perform all my pleasure: even saying to Jerusalem, Thou shalt be built; and to the temple, Thy foundation shall be laid.

     Isaiah 43(8-13): Bring forth the blind people that have eyes, and the deaf that have ears. Let all the nations be gathered together, and let the people be assembled [for the final passover - Saturday/Sabbath 15th Day (Jesus the Lamb of God)]: who among them can declare this [the future], and shew us former things [the past]? let them bring forth their witnesses, that they may be justified: or let them hear, and say, It is truth. Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant [Noah/Moses/Isaiah the same Nicodemus] whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me [Adam - the Father of all living - not born of woman] there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me [Eve - the Mother of all living - not born of woman]. I [Father], even I [Mother], am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour. I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, when there was no strange god among you: therefore ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, that I am God. Yea, before the day was I am he; and there is none that can deliver out of my hand: I will work, and who shall let it?

     Deuteronomy 32(36-40): For the LORD shall judge his people, and repent himself for his servants, when he seeth that their power is gone, and there is none shut up, or left. And he shall say, Where are their gods, their rock in whom they trusted, Which did eat the fat of their sacrifices, and drank the wine of their drink offerings? let them rise up and help you, and be your protection. See now that I [Lord Adam], even I [Lord Eve], am he [the LORD], and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand. *For I left up my hand to heaven, and say, I live for ever*.

     John 10(24-30): Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly. Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father’s name [Lord Adam/Jesus], they bear witness of me [Lord Jesus/Eve - the Son - born of woman]. But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; *and they shall never perish*, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father [Lord Adam], which gave them me [Lord Jesus/Eve - the Son], is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. I [Lord Jesus/Eve - the Son] and my Father [Lord Adam] are one [the LORD].

     John 12(37-41): But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him: That the saying of Esaias the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spake, Lord, who hath believed our report? and to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed? Therefore they could not believe, because that Esaias said again, He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them. These things said Esaias, when he saw his glory, and spake of him.

     Thomas 15(28-31) Part 5 of Chapter 16: who was not born of woman: These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time cometh, when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall shew you plainly of the Father.16(25) + prostrate yourselves upon your face: At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you:16(26) + and adore him: For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.16(27) + he is your Father: I [Lord Eve the Mother of all living - not born of woman] came forth from the Father [Lord Adam the Father of all living - not born of woman], and am come into the world: again, I [Lord Jesus/Eve the Son - born of woman] leave the world, and go to the Father [not born of woman - Lord Adam/Jesus]. His disciples said unto him, Lo, now speakest thou plainly, and speakest no proverb.16(28-29)

     Thomas 46(6-10) Part 7 of Chapter 8: Jesus said, from Adam: Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that thou hast a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayest, If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death.8(52) + until John [Jesus] the Baptist: Art thou greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and the prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself? Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me [<Jesus the Baptist];8(53-54t) + there is among those: of whom ye say, that he [Adam] is your God:8(54b) + who are born of women: Yet ye have not known him; but I [Jesus/Eve - the Son - born of woman] know him:8(55t) + none higher than John [Jesus] the Baptist: and if I [Mother] should say, I [Lord Eve] know him [Lord Adam] not, I [Jesus/Eve - the Son] shall be a liar like unto you: but I know him, and keep his saying.8(55b) + so that his eyes will not be broken: Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he [blind man/Abraham] saw it, and was glad. Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham?8(56-57) + but I have said: Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.8(58)
