(Mattew 10- 11. And into whatsoever city or village ye shall enter, search out who in it is worthy; and there abide till ye go forth.

(Mattew 10- 12. And as ye enter into the house, salute it.

(Thomas 16.) Jesus said : “Men think, perhaps, that it is peace which I have come to bring to the world. They do not know that I have come to bring to the earth : discord, fire, sword, and war. Indeed, if there are five in a house : three will be against two, and two against three, the father against the son, and the son against the father. And they will stand alone.”

32.

(Matthew 10- 34. Think not that I came to send peace on the earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.

(Thomas 98.) “The Kingdom of the Father is like a man who wanted to kill a powerful man. In his own house he drew his sword and stuck it into the wall in order to find out whether his hand would be firm enough. Then he slew the powerful man.”

(Matthew 10- 35. For I came to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law:

(Thomas99.) The disciples said to Him : “Your brothers and Your mother are standing outside. ” He said to them : “Those here who do the will of My Father are My brothers and My mother. It is they who will enter the Kingdom of My Father.”

(Matthew 10-36. and a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.

(Thomas 48.) Jesus said : “When two make peace with each other in this one house, they will say to the mountain, ‘Move !’ and it will move.”

(Thomas 55.) Jesus said : “He who does not hate his father and his mother cannot be My disciple. And he who does not hate his brothers and sisters and take up his cross as I do will not be worthy of Me.”

(Matthew 10- 37. He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.

(Thomas 101.) “He who does not hate his father and his mother as I do cannot become a disciple to Me. And he who does not love his father and his mother as I do cannot become a disciple to Me. For My mother {gave Me death}, but My true Mother gave Me life.”

hardened?

concerning bread? But beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees.

(Mark 8-15. And he charged them, saying, Take heed, beware of the leaven

of the Pharisees and the leaven of Herod.

leaven of bread, but of the teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees.

(Thomas 53.) His disciples said to Him : “Is circumcision useful or not ?” He said to them : “If it were useful, their Father would beget them already circumcised from their mother. Rather, the true circumcision in spirit is in all ways useful.”

(Phillip) “When Abraham rejoiced that he was to see what he was to see, he circumcised the flesh of the foreskin, teaching us that it is proper to destroy the flesh.”

(James 4:11. Speak not one against another, brethren. He that speaketh against a brother, or judgeth his brother, speaketh against the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judgest the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge.

(Matthew 10- 18. yea and before governors and kings shall ye be brought for my sake, for a testimony to them and to the Gentiles.

(Matthew 10- 19. But when they deliver you up, be not anxious how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that hour what ye shall speak.

(Matthew 10- 20. For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father that speaketh in you.

34.

(Thomas 37.) His disciples said : “When will You reveal Yourself to us and when will we see You ? ” Jesus said : “When You strip without being ashamed and take up Your clothes and place them under Your feet like little children and trample on them, then You will see the Son of the Living One, and You will not fear.”

(Matthew 24- 20. For I say unto you, that except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no wise enter into the kingdom of heaven.

(Matthew 24- 21. Ye have heard that it was said to them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:

(Matthew 12- 39. But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given it but the sign of Jonah the prophet:

(Matthew 12- 43. But the unclean spirit, when he is gone out of the man, passeth through waterless places, seeking rest, and findeth it not.

(Thomas 50.) Jesus said : “If they say to You, ‘Where did You come from ?’, say to them : ‘We came from the light, the place where the light came into being of itself, established itself and revealed itself in their image. If they say to You :

‘Who are You ?’, say : ‘We are its sons. We are the elect of the Living Father.’ If they ask You : ‘What is the sign of Your Father in You, say to them : ‘It is movement and rest.’

36.

(Matthew 5- 16. Even so let your light shine before men; that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.

(Thomas 24.) His disciples said to Him : “Show us the place where You are, since it is necessary for us to seek it.” He said to them : “He who has ears, let him hear. There is light within a man of light, and he lights up the whole world. If he does not shine, there is darkness.”

(Matthew 22- 37. And he said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

(Matthew 22- 38. This is the great and first commandment.

(Matthew 22- 39. And a second like unto it is this, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.

(Matthew 22- 40. On these two commandments the whole law hangeth, and the prophets.

(Thomas 102.) Damn the pharisees for they are like dogs sleeping in the manger of oxen, neither the dog or the oxen eats.

(Matthew 5-20. For I say unto you, that except your righteousness shall

exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no wise

enter into the kingdom of heaven.

(Thomas 39.) “The Pharisees and the scribes have taken the keys of knowledge and hidden them. They have not entered, nor have they allowed those who wish so to enter. You, however, be as shrewd as serpents and as innocent as doves.”

39.

(Matthew 23-13. But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!

because ye shut the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye enter not in

yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering in to enter.

(Matthew 23-14. [Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hyprcrites! for ye devour widows’ houses, even while for a pretence ye make long prayers: therefore ye shall receive greater condemnation.]

(Matthew 23-16. Woe unto you, ye blind guides, that say, Whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by the gold of the temple,

he is a debtor.

(Thomas100.) They showed Jesus a gold coin and said to Him : “Caesar’s men demand taxes from us.” He said to them : “Give Caesar what belongs to Caesar, give Elohîm what belongs to Elohîm, and give Me what is Mine.”

(Matthew 23- 17. Ye fools and blind: for which is greater, the gold, or the temple that hath sanctified the gold?

(Thomas 34) Jesus said : “When a blind man leads another blind man both fall into a ditch.”

40.

(Thomas 12.) The disciples said to Jesus : “We know that You will leave from us. Who is to be our leader ? ” Jesus said to them : “From where Your stand now, You are to go to James the Just, for whose sake heaven and earth came into being.”

(James 5:16.) Confess therefore your sins one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The supplication of a righteous man availeth much in its working.

(James 1:22.) But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deluding your own selves.

(James 1: 23.) For if any one is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a mirror:

(Thomas 84.) “When You see Your own likeness, You rejoice. But when You see the images of Yourselves which came into being before You, which do not die nor become visible, how much then will You be able to bear ?”

(Phillip) The world came about through a mistake. For he who created it wanted to create it imperishable and immortal. He fell short of attaining his desire. For

the world never was imperishable, but sons are. Nothing will receive imperishablilty if it does not first become a son. But he who does not have the ability to receive, how much more will be unable to give?
