These are the secret sayings which the living Jesus spoke
and which Didymos Judas Thomas wrote down.

Whoever finds the interpretations of these sayings will not experience death.
The Kingdom is inside of you. You are the sons of the living Father.
I shall give you what no eye has seen and what no ear has heard
and what no hand has touch and what has never occured to the human mind.
He who will drink from my mouth will become like me and I myself shall become he.
It is I who am the light which is above them all.
It is I who am the All.
The Kingdom of God is spread out upon the earth and you do not see it.
Split a piece of wood, lift up a stone and you will find Me.
