Others fell on thorns, choked the seeds and worms ate them. Others fell on good soil, and produced a fine crop: sixty per measure and one hundred twenty per measure."

    Jesus said: "This heaven will pass away, and the one above it will pass away.

    The dead are not alive, and the living will not die. During the days when you ate what is dead, you made it come alive. When you are in the light, what will you do? On the day when you were one, you became two. But when you become two, what will you do?"

    – Thomas 11

    Jesus saw some babies nursing. He said to his disciples: "These nursing babies are like those who enter the kingdom."

    The disciples said: "Shall we be as babies to enter the kingdom?"

    Jesus said: "When you make the two into one, and when you make the inner like the outer and the outer like the inner, 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 enter the kingdom."
