CHRIST THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD
Chapter 50 of The Gospel of the Holy Twelve
Then spoke Jesus again to them, saying, “I am the Light of the world; he who follows me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”
The Pharisees therefore said to him, “You bear record of yourself; your record is not true.”
Jesus answered and said to them, “Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true; for I know from where I came, and where I go, but you cannot tell where I come, and where I go.
You judge after the flesh; I judge no man. And yet if I judge, my judgment is true; for I am not alone, but I come from the Father-Mother who sent me.
It is also written in your law that the testimony of two men is true. I am one that bears witness of myself; John bore witness of me, and he is a prophet, and the Spirit of truth that sent me bore witness of me.”
Then they said to him, “Where is your Father and your Mother?” Jesus answered, “You neither know me, nor my Parent; if you had known me, you should have known my Father and my Mother also.”
One said, “Show us the Father; show us the Mother, and we will believe you.” He answered saying, “If you have seen your brother and felt his love, you have seen the Father; if you have seen your sister and felt her love, you have seen the Mother.
Far and near, the All-Holy knows Their own; yes, in each of you, the Fatherhood and the Motherhood may be seen, for the Father and the Mother are One in God.”
These words Jesus spoke in the treasury as he taught in the temple. No man laid hands on him, for his hour had not yet come. Then said Jesus again to them, “I go my way, and you shall seek me and shall die in your sins; where I go, you cannot come.”
Then said the Jews, “Will he kill himself? Because he said, ‘Where I go, you cannot come.’” He said to them, “You are from beneath, I am from above; you are of this world, I am not of this world.
I said therefore to you that you shall die in your sins; for if you believe not that I Am of God, you shall die in your sins.”
Then they said to him, “Who are you?” Jesus said to them, “Even the same that I said to you from the beginning.
I have many things to say which shall judge you, but the Holy One who sent me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I have heard from above.”
Then Jesus said to them, “When you have lifted up the Son of man, then shall you know that I am sent of God, and that I do nothing of myself; but as the All-Holy has taught me, I speak these things. Who sent me is with me, the All-Holy has not left me alone; for I always do those things that please the Eternal.”
As he spoke these words, many believed in him, for they said, “He is a Prophet sent from God. Him let us hear.”
