PART 1 - The Secret Words of Thomas Saying 14 were created from John 11(56-57end)+12(1-11)

Jesus said to them, if you fast: Then sought they for Jesus, and spake among themselves, as they stood in the temple, What think ye, that he will not come to the feast?11(56) + you will beget sin for yourselves: Now both the chief priests and the Pharisees had given a commandment, that, if any man knew where he were, he should shew it, that they might take him.11(57) + and if you pray: Then Jesus six days before the passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus was which had been dead, whom he raised from the dead. There they made him a supper; and Martha served: but Lazarus was one of them that sat at the table with him.12(1-2) + you will be condemned: Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment. Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, which should betray him, Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor?12(3-5) + and if you give alms you will do evil to your spirit: This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein.12(6) + and if you go into any land and wander in the regions: Then said Jesus, Let her alone: against the day of my burying hath she kept this.12(7) + if they receive you, eat what they set before you: For the poor always ye have with you;12(8t) + heal the sick among them: but me ye have not always.12(8b) + for what goes into your mouth: Much people of the Jews therefore knew that he was there:12(9t) + will not defile you: and they came not for Jesus' sake only, but that they might see Lazarus also, whom he had raised from the dead.12(9b) + but what comes out of your mouth, that is what will defile you: But the chief priests consulted that they might put Lazarus also to death; Because that by reason of him many of the Jews went away, and believed on Jesus.12(10-11) [Note: The secret words which formed the Sayings contained in the Gospel of Thomas were created to either confirm the information they were created from or to reveal something about the information they were created for. The Sayings themselves have no value.]

PART 2 - The Secret Words of Thomas Saying 7 were created from John 12(10-16)

Jesus said, blessed is the lion which the man eats: But the chief priests consulted that they might put Lazarus also to death; Because that by reason of him many of the Jews went away, and believed on Jesus.12(10-11) + and the lion will become man: On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord.12(12-13) + and cursed is the man whom the lion eats: And Jesus, when he had found a young ass, sat thereon; as it is written, Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy King cometh, sitting on an ass's colt.12(14-15) + and the lion will become man: These things understood not his disciples at the first: but when Jesus was glorified, then remembered they that these things were written of him, and that they had done these things unto him.12(16)

END: and the lion will become man: These things understood not his disciples at the first: but when Jesus was glorified, then remembered they that these things were written of him, and that they had done these things unto him.12(16) BEGIN: And he said, the man is like a wise fisherman who cast his net into the sea, he drew it up from the sea full of small fish: These things understood not his disciples at the first:12(16t) + among them he found a large and good fish: but when Jesus was glorified, then remembered they that these things were written of him, and that they had done these things unto him.12(16b)


PART 3 - The Secret Words of Thomas Saying 8 were created from John 12(16-23)

And he said, the man is like a wise fisherman who cast his net into the sea, he drew it up from the sea full of small fish: These things understood not his disciples at the first:12(16t) + among them he found a large and good fish: but when Jesus was glorified, then remembered they that these things were written of him, and that they had done these things unto him.12(16b) + that wise fisherman, he threw all the small fish back down into the sea: The people therefore that was with him when he called Lazarus out of his grave, and raised him from the dead, bare record. For this cause the people also met him, for that they heard that he had done this miracle.12(17-18) + he chose the large fish without regret: The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, Perceive ye how ye prevail nothing? behold, the world is gone after him.12(19) + whoever has ears: 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.12(20-21) + to hear: Philip cometh and telleth Andrew: and again Andrew and Philip tell Jesus.12(22) + let him hear: And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified.12(23)

Jesus said: And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified.12(23) + let him who seeks not cease seeking: Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.12(24) + until he finds: He that loveth his life shall lose it;12(25t) + and when he finds: and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.12(25b) + he will: If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.12(26) + be troubled: Now is my soul troubled;12(27t) + and when he has been troubled: and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour.12(27b) + he will: Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.12(28) + marvel: The people therefore, that stood by, and heard it, said that it thundered: others said, An angel spake to him. Jesus answered and said, This voice came not because of me, but for your sakes.12(29-30) + and he will reign over the all: Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince [the Prince] of this world be cast out. And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.12(31-32)

Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth.12(35) + into light: 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.12(36) + what will you do: 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?12(37-38) + on the day when you were one you became two: 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.12(39-41) + but when you have become two what will you do: Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue: For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.12(42-43)

(14) Jesus said to them: If you fast, you will15 beget sin for yourselves, and if you16 pray, you will be condemned, and17 if you give alms, you will do18 evil to your spirits. And if you19 go into any land and 20 wander in the regions, if they receive21 you, eat what they set before you,22 heal the sick among them.23 For what goes into your mouth24 will not defile you, but what25 comes out of your mouth, that is what26 will defile you.

Note: Jesus said to them, if you fast: Then sought they for Jesus, and spake among themselves, as they stood in the temple, What think ye, that he will not come to the feast?11(56)

     Exodus 12(11-20): And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: it is the LORD’S passover. For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the LORD. And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt. And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to the LORD throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever. Seven days shall ye eat unleavened bread; even the first day ye shall put away leaven out of your houses: for whosoever eateth leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul shall be cut off from Israel. And in the first day there shall be an holy convocation, and in the seventh day there shall be an holy convocation to you; no manner of work shall be done in them, save that which every man must eat, that only may be done of you. And ye shall observe the feast of unleavened bread; for in this selfsame day have I brought your armies out of the land of Egypt: therefore shall ye observe this day in your generations by an ordinance for ever. In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at even, ye shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and twentieth day of the month at even. Seven days shall there be no leaven found in your houses: for whosoever eateth that which is leaven, even that soul shall be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he be a stranger, or born in the land. Ye shall eat nothing leavened; in all your habitations shall ye eat unleavened bread.

Note: The World Book Encyclopedia - 1961: FAST is abstinence from food, or certain kinds of food, for a period of time. The origin of fasting is unknown. But the custom of fasting has played a part in the practices of every major religious group at some time.


Note: Jesus said to them, if you fast: Then sought they for Jesus, and spake among themselves, as they stood in the temple, What think ye, that he will not come to the feast?11(56) + you will beget sin for yourselves: Now both the chief priests and the Pharisees had given a commandment, that, if any man knew where he were, he should show it, that they might take him.12(57)

     Isaiah 58(1-14): Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins. Yet they seek me daily, and delight to know my ways, as a nation that did righteousness, and forsook not the ordinance of their God: they ask of me the ordinances of justice; they take delight in approaching to God. Wherefore have we fasted, say they, and thou seest not? wherefore have we afflicted our soul, and thou takest no knowledge? Behold, in the day of your fast ye find pleasure, and exact all your labours. Behold, ye fast for strife and debate, and to smite with the fist of wickedness: ye shall not fast as ye do this day, to make your voice to be heard on high. Is it such a fast that I have chosen? a day for a man to afflict his soul? Is it to bow down his head as a bulrush, and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him? wilt thou call this a fast, and an acceptable day to the LORD? Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke? Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh? Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy reward. Then shalt thou call, and the LORD shall answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am. If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity; And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noon day: And the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not. And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in. If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words: Then shalt thou delight thyself in the LORD; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the LORD had spoken it. [Note: the final passover falls on Saturday/Sabbath the 15th Day]


Note: and if you pray: Then Jesus six days before the passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus was which had been dead, whom he raised from the dead. There they made him a supper; and Martha served: but Lazarus was one of them that sat at the table with him.12(1-2)

     John 11(40-43): Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God? Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes [prayed], and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me [Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up]. And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me. And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.

     John 2(13-19): And the Jews passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem, And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting: And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew the tables; And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father's house an house of merchandise. And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up. Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things? Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. [See also Part 2 of Chapter 6 - Notes: pray:]


Note: you will be condemned: Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment. Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, which should betray him, Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor?12(3-5) + and if you give alms you will do evil to your spirit: This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein.12(6)

     John 6(70-71): Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil? He spake of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon: for he it was that should betray him, being one of the twelve.

     John 8(44): Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.


Note: and if you go into any land and wander in the regions: Then said Jesus [Jesus of Nazareth/Galilee], Let her [Mary of Bethany/Judaea] alone: against the day of my burying [nigh to the city of Jerusalem/Judaea] hath she kept this.12(7)

     John 11(1-2): Now a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany [in Judaea], the town of Mary and her sister Martha. (It was that Mary which anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.)

     John 19(17-20): And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha: Where they crucified him, and two other with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst. 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 [Jerusalem/Judaea]: and it was written in Hebrew, and Greek, and Latin.

     John 19(41-42): Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden; and in the garden a new sepulchre, wherein was never man yet laid. There laid they Jesus therefore because of the Jews' preparation day; for the sepulchre was nigh at hand.


Note: heal the sick among them: but me ye have not always.12(8b)

     John 6(1-2): After these things Jesus went over the sea of Galilee, which is the sea of Tiberias. And a great multitude followed him, because they saw his miracles which he did on them that were diseased.

     John 14(18-20): I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more: but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.


Note: for what goes into your mouth: Much people of the Jews therefore knew that he was there:12(9t)

     John 12(1-2): Then Jesus six days before the passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus was which had been dead, whom he raised from the dead. There they made him a supper; and Martha served: but Lazarus was one of them that sat at the table with him.


Note: will not defile you: and they came not for Jesus' sake only, but that they might see Lazarus also, whom he had raised from the dead.12(9b)

     John 11(41-44): Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me. And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me. And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth. And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go.

     Numbers 6(6-8): All the days that he separateth himself unto the LORD he shall come at no dead body. He shall not make himself unclean for his father, or for his mother, for his brother, or for his sister, when they die: because the consecration of his God is upon his head. All the days of his separation he is holy unto the LORD.


Note: John 12(1-8): Then Jesus six days before the passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus [the same Elijah] was which had been dead, whom he raised from the dead. There they made him a supper; and Martha [the same widow woman] served: but Lazarus was one of them that sat at the table with him. Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment. Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, which should betray him, Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor? This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein. Then said Jesus, Let her alone: against the day of my burying hath she kept this. For the poor always ye have with you; but me ye have not always.

     John 11(1-5): Now a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha. (It was that Mary which anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.) Therefore his sisters sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick. When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby. Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus.

     1 Kings 17(8-24): And the word of the LORD came unto him, saying, Arise, get thee to Zarephath, which belongeth to Zidon, and dwell there: behold, I have commanded a widow woman [the same Martha] there to sustain thee. So he arose and went to Zarephath. And when he came to the gate of the city, behold, the widow woman was there gathering of sticks: and he called to her, and said, Fetch me, I pray thee, a little water in a vessel, that I may drink. And as she was going to fetch it, he called to her, and said, Bring me, I pray thee, a morsel of bread in thine hand. And she said, As the LORD thy God liveth, I have not a cake, but an handful of meal in a barrel, and a little oil in a cruse: and, behold, I am gathering two sticks, that I may go in and dress it for me and my son, that we may eat it and die. And Elijah said unto her, Fear not; go and do as thou hast said: but make me thereof a little cake first, and bring it unto me, and after make for thee and for thy son. For thus saith the LORD God of Israel, The barrel of meal shall not waste, neither shall the cruse of oil fail, until the day that the LORD sendeth rain upon the earth. And she went and did according to the saying of Elijah: and she, and he, and her house, did eat many days. And the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of the LORD, which he spake by Elijah. And it came to pass after these things, that the son of the woman, the mistress of the house, fell sick; and his sickness was so sore, that there was no breath left in him. And she said unto Elijah, What have I to do with thee, O thou man of God? art thou come unto me to call my sin to remembrance, and to slay my son? And he said unto her, Give me thy son. And he took him out of her bosom, and carried him up into a loft, where he abode, and laid him upon his own bed. And he cried unto the LORD, and said, O LORD my God, hast thou also brought evil upon the widow with whom I sojourn, by slaying her son? And he stretched himself upon the child three times, and cried unto the LORD, and said, O LORD my God, I pray thee, let this child’s soul come into him again. And the LORD heard the voice of Elijah; and the soul of the child came into him again, and he revived. And Elijah took the child, and brought him down out of the chamber into the house, and delivered him unto his mother: and Elijah said, See, thy son liveth. And the woman said to Elijah, Now by this I know that thou art a man of God, and that the word of the LORD in thy mouth is truth.

The first thief and liar - Mark 7(14-23) - The first false gospel

And when he had called all the people unto him, he said unto them, Hearken unto me every one of you, and understand: There is nothing from without a man, that entering into him can defile him: but the things which come out of him, those are they that defile the man [taken from Thomas Saying 14(24-27) Part 1 of Chapter 12]. If any man have ears to hear, let him hear [taken from Thomas Saying 21(19) Part 6 of Chapter 3 or Thomas Saying 8(2-3) Part 3 of Chapter 12]. And when he was entered into the house from the people, his disciples asked him concerning the parable [impossible because the sayings themselves have no value except for the secret words which formed them]. And he saith unto them, Are ye so without understanding also? Do ye not perceive, that whatsoever thing from without entereth into the man, it cannot defile him; Because it entereth not into his heart, but into the belly, and goeth out into the draught, purging all meats? And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, Thefts, covertousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: All these things come from within, and defile the man [created from Thomas Saying 14(19-27) Part 1 of Chapter 12 & Thomas Saying 45(1-5) Part 6 of Chapter 8].

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 from the heart; and they defile the man. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witnesses, 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 10(2-9) - The third false gospel

Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest [taken from Thomas Saying 73(6-9) Part 8 of Chapter 7]. Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves. Carry neither purse, nor scrip, nor shoes: and salute no man by the way. And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, Peace be to this house. And if the son of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon it: if not, it shall turn to you again. And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they give: for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house. And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you: And heal the sick that are therein [taken from Thomas Saying 14(19-23) Part 1 of Chapter 12], and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.

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.

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.

Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.12(28) - Gospel according to John] and Didymos Judas Thomas [153 - *Nicodemus the same Moses] wrote.

     John 20(30-31): And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written [1 blank space and 2 blank lines/pages] in this book [the 3rd book - the Gospel according to Thomas]: But these are written [the 1st book - the Gospel according to John], that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing [the 2nd unsealed book - John + Thomas] ye might have life through his name [Lord Eve].

     Thomas 58(9) Part 2 of Chapter 7: has found: not openly, but as it were in secret.7(10b)

     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: he will: If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.12(26)

     John 5(39-44): 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?

     John 12(44-45): Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him [Father] that sent me [Mother]. And he that seeth me [Jesus] seeth him [Lord Adam] that sent me [Lord Eve].


Note: marvel: The people therefore, that stood by, and heard it, said that it thundered: others said, An angel spake to him. Jesus answered and said, This voice came not because of me, but for your sakes.12(29-30)

     Isaiah 55(8-11): For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.


Note: and he [Jesus] will reign over the all: Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince [the Prince] of this world be cast out. And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.12(31-32)

     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.

     Isaiah 65(17-19): For, Behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind. But be ye glad and rejoice for ever in that which I create: for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy. And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people: and the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying.

     John 18(35-40): Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Thine own nation and the chief priests have delivered thee unto me: what hast thou done? Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence. Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice. Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find in him no fault at all. But ye have a custom, that I should release unto you one at the passover: will ye therefore that I release unto you the King of the Jews? Then cried they all again, saying, Not this man [Jesus], but Barabbas. Now Barabbas was a robber.

     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 12(31-33): Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince [the Prince/the King] 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.

     Thomas 16(31-36) Part 10 of Chapter 6: Jesus said: 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:6(62-63t) + men possibly think that I have come to throw peace upon the world: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.6(63b) + and they do not know that I have come: But there are some of you that believe not.6(64t) + to throw divisions upon the earth, fire, sword, war: For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him.6(64b)

END: he will: Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.12(28) + marvel: The people therefore, that stood by, and heard it, said that it thundered: others said, An angel spake to him. Jesus answered and said, This voice came not because of me, but for your sakes.12(29-30) + and he will reign over the all: Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince [the Prince] of this world be cast out.

until it (the world) is afire. (11) Jesus said: This heaven shall16 pass away and the one above it shall pass away,17 and the dead are not alive and the living18 shall not die. In the days when you devoured19 the dead, you made it alive;20 when you come into light,21 what will you do? On the day when you22 were one, you became two. But when23 you have become two, what will you do?24

Jesus said: Father, glorify thy name.12(28t) + this heaven: Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.12(28b) + shall pass away: The people therefore, that stood by, and heard it, said that it thundered:12(29t) + and the one above it: others said, An angel spake to him.12(29b) + and the dead are not alive: Jesus answered and said, This voice came not because of me, but for your sakes.12(30) + and the Living shall not die: Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince [the Prince] of this world be cast out.12(31) + in the day when you devoured the dead: 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.12(32-33) + you made it alive: 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?12(34) + when you come: 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.12(35) + into light: 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.12(36) + what will you do: 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?12(37-38) + on the day when you were one you became two: 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.12(39-41) + but when you have become two what will you do: Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue: For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.12(42-43)


Note: Jesus said: Father, glorify thy name.12(28t) + this heaven: Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.12(28b) + shall pass away: The people therefore, that stood by, and heard it, said that it thundered.12(29t) + and the one above it: others said, An angel spake to him.12(29b)

     Genesis 1(6-10): 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 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.

     Genesis 1(4): 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.

     Isaiah 55(8-11): For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my way, saith the LORD.

     John 1(49-50): 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.

And they took Jesus, and led him away. And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha: Where they crucified him, and two other with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst. And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writing was, JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS.

     John 14(28-30): 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. Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world [Cain/the devil] cometh, and hath nothing in me.

     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)

     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.

     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 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.

     Isaiah 53(7-10) 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 hath 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.

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.

     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 is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: Of sin, because they believe not on me; Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; Of judgment, because the prince [the Prince] of this world is judged.

     Thomas 100(29-31) Part 2 of Chapter 16: He said to them: And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:16(8) + give the things of Caesar to Caesar: Of sin, because they believe not on me;16(9) + give the things of God to God: Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;16(10) + and give me what is mine: Of judgment, because the prince [the Prince] of this world is judged.16(11)

Note: in the day [Saturday/Sabbath 15th Day (dark/night)] when you devoured the dead: 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.12(32-33)

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

     John 19(14-18): And it was the preparation of the passover [begins Friday 14th Day (light/day) at evening/sunset which begins Saturday/Sabbath 15th Day (dark/night)], and about the sixth hour [Friday 14th DAY (light/day)]: 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. And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha: Where they crucified him, and two other with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst.

     John 19(30-42): When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost. The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation [of the passover - Saturday/Sabbath 15th Day (dark/night)] that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day [Saturday/Sabbath 15th Day (light/day)], (for that sabbath day was an high day [the sabbath of the LORD and the feast of unleavened bread unto the LORD],) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away. Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the first, and of the other which was crucified with him. But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs: But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water. And he that saw it bare record, and his record is true: and he knoweth that he saith true, that ye might believe. For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken. And again another scripture saith, They shall look on him whom they pierced. 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 came to Jesus by night, and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about an hundred pound weight. Then took they the body of Jesus, and wound it in linen clothes with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury. Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden; and in the garden a new sepulchre, wherein was never man yet laid. There laid they Jesus therefore because of the Jews' preparation day [Saturday/Sabbath 15th Day (dark/night)]; for the sepulchre was nigh at hand.


Note: you made it alive: 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?12(34)

     John 8(28-30): Then said Jesus unto them, When you have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things. And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him. As he spake these words, many believed on him.

     John 10(15-18): 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. Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. No man taketh from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.

     John 19(30-34): When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost. The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation [of the passover - Saturday/Sabbath 15th Day (dark/night)], that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day [Saturday/Sabbath 15th Day (light/day)], (for that sabbath day was an high day [the sabbath of the LORD and the feast of unleavened bread unto the LORD],) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away. Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the first, and of the other which was crucified with him. But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs: But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.

     John 20(1-2): The first day [Saturday/Sabbath 15th Day (light/day)] of the week [7 Days of unleavened bread] cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark [Saturday/Sabbath 15th Day (dark/night) - dawn], unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre. Then she runneth, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulchre, and we know not where they have laid him.

     John 20(11-18): 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/Lord Adam] 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/Lord Eve] 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.

     John 20(19-23): Then the same day [Saturday/Sabbath 15th Day] at evening, being the first day [Saturday/Sabbath 15th Day (light/day) - just before evening] of the week [7 Days of unleavened bread], 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.


Note: on the day when you were one you became two: Therefore they could not believe, because that Esaias [Isaiah the same Moses/Nicodemus] 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.12(39-41)

     Deuteronomy 29(2-4): And Moses called unto all Israel, and said unto them, Ye have seen all that the LORD did before your eyes in the land of Egypt unto Pharaoh, and unto all his servants, and unto all his land; The great temptations which thine eyes have seen, the signs, and those great miracles: Yet the LORD hath not given you an heart to perceive, and eyes to see, and ears to hear, unto this day.

     Isaiah 6(8-10): Also I [Isaiah] 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 [Isaiah the same Moses]. 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.

Scriptural Parallels and Echoes (page 59)

The Secret Words of Thomas (12) were created from John 12(42-50end)+13(1)

The disciples said to Jesus, we know: Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue:12(42) + that thou wilt go away from us: For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.12(43) + who is it: 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.12(44-45) + who shall be great over us: I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.12(46) + Jesus said to them: And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not:12(47t) + wherever you have come: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.12(47b) + you will go to James the righteous: He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.12(48) + for whose sake: For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.12(49) + heaven and earth: And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.12(50) + came into being: 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: you will go to James the righteous: He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.12(48)

     John 20(20-31): 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 [James & Matthew were two of the twelve], 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. But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. The other disciples 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 [1] with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you. Then saith he to Thomas [2], 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 [3] answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God. Jesus saith unto him, Thomas [4], because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed. And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written [1 blank space and 2 blank lines/pages] in this book [Gospel according to Thomas]: But these are written [Gospel according to John], that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing [John + Thomas the 2nd unsealed book] ye might have life through his name [Lord Eve].

     John 21(1-2): 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 [7] Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee [James and Matthew - Gospel according to Thomas], and two other of his disciples [Lazarus and Nicodemus - Gospel according to John].

     John 21(7-8): Therefore that disciple [Lazarus] whom Jesus loved saith unto Peter [Simon 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 [Lazarus] was naked,) and did cast himself into the sea. And the other [4] disciples [Andrew, Philip, Joseph of Arimathaea/the father of Jesus and Judas/not Iscariot] came in a little ship; (for they were not far from land, but as it were two hundred cubits,) dragging the net with fishes.

     Gospel according to John - The names of the two sons of Zebedee were never given.

     Gospel according to Thomas - The first 6 names given are as follows:

Note: who shall be great over us: I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.12(46)

     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 3(27-36): 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. He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom's voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled. He must increase, but I must decrease. He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all. And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth; and no man receiveth his testimony. He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true. For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him. The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand. 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.


Note: for whose sake: For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I [Mother] should say, and what I [Son] should speak.12(49)

     Thomas 22(34) Part 4 of Chapter 5: and an image in 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)


Note: for whose sake: For I have not spoken of myself, but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I [Mother] should say, and what I [Son] should speak.12(49)

     John 5(24-27): Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. 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. Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.

     Thomas 11(18) Part 5 of Chapter 12: and the dead are not alive: Jesus answered and said, This voice came not because of me, but for your sakes.12(30)


Note: for whose sake: For I have not spoken of myself, but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I [Mother] should say, and what I [Son] should speak.12(49)

     John 17(6-20): I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; 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 thine 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 thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; 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 [the truth which Nicodemus recorded in his Gospel according to John + Thomas];
