23 Jesus said, "I shall choose you, one from a thousand and two from ten thousand, and they will stand as a single one." 


If they say to you, "Is it you?" say, "We are its children, and we are the chosen of the living Father." If they ask you, "What is the evidence of your Father in you?" say to them, "It is a movement and a rest."

37 His disciples said, "When will you appear to us, and when will we see you?"  Jesus said, "When you strip naked without being ashamed, and you take your clothes and put them under your feet like little children and trample them, then [you] will see the son of the Living One and you will not be afraid."

28 Jesus said, "I took my stand in the midst of the world, and in flesh I appeared to them. I found them all drunk, and I did not find any of them thirsty. My soul ached for the children of humanity, because they are blind in their hearts and do not see, for they came into the world empty, and they also seek to depart from the world empty.

33 Jesus said, "What you will hear in your ear, in the other ear proclaim from your rooftops.  After all, no one lights a lamp and puts it under a basket, nor does one put it in a hidden place. Rather, one puts it on a lampstand so that all who come and go will see its light."

 

56 Jesus said, "Whoever has come to know the world has discovered a carcass, and whoever has discovered a carcass, of that person the world is not worthy."

 

But I have said that whoever among you becomes a child will recognize the kingdom and will become greater than John."

49 Jesus said, "Congratulations to those who are alone and chosen, for you will find the kingdom. For you have come from it, and you will return there again."

59 Jesus said, "Look to the living one as long as you live, otherwise you might die and then try to see the living one, and you will be unable to see."

77 Jesus said, "I am the light that is over all things. I am all: from me all came forth, and to me all attained. Split a piece of wood; I am there.  Lift up the stone, and you will find me there."

61 Jesus said, "Two will recline on a couch; one will die, one will live." Salome said, "Who are you mister? You have climbed onto my couch and eaten from my table as if you are from someone." Jesus said to her, "I am the one who comes from what is whole. I was granted from the things of my Father." "I am your disciple." "For this reason I say, if one is whole, one will be filled with light, but if one is divided, one will be filled with darkness."

 

50 Jesus said, "If they say to you, 'Where have you come from?' say to them, 'We have come from the light, from the place where the light came into being by itself, established [itself], and appeared in their image. If they say to you, 'Is it you?' say, 'We are its children, and we are the chosen of the living Father.'If they ask you, 'What is the evidence of your Father in you?' say to them, 'It is motion and rest.'"

75 Jesus said, "There are many standing at the door, but those who are alone will enter the bridal suite."

58 Jesus said, "Congratulations to the person who has mourned and has found life."
76 Jesus said, The Father's kingdom is like a merchant who had a supply of merchandise and found a peal. That merchant was prudent; he sold the merchandise and bought the single pearl for himself

24  His disciples said, "Show us to the place where you are, for we must seek it."  He said to them, "He who has an ear, let him listen; There is light that exists in the inside of a man of light, and he becomes light to the world, all of it: if he does not become light, he is darkness. "

22 Jesus saw some little ones being suckled. He said this to his disciples : "These little ones who take milk are like those who go into the kingdom." They answered saying, "Then we will go into the kingdom when we are little ones?" Jesus said, "When you make the two, one, and when you make the inside like the outside, and the outside like the inside, and the upper like the lower, and when you make male and female into a single one, so that the male will not be male nor the female be female, when you make eyes in place of an eye, a hand in place of a hand, a foot in place of a foot, an image in place of an image, then you will go into the kingdom."

42. Come into Being as you pass away.

3  Jesus says: If those who would lead you, say to you: Behold, the Kingdom is in the sky!, then the birds of the sky will precede you. If they say to you: It is in the sea!, then the fish will precede you. But the Kingdom  is inside you and it is of your eye (from the outside). When you know yourselves, then you will be known and you will realize that you are the son's of the Father who Lives. However, if you do not recognize yourselves, then you exist in poverty, and you are poverty.
