Saying 67

(67) Jesus said, "If one who knows the all still feels a personal deficiency, he is completely deficient."

The all is God. If you know God and are not filled by his Spirit, the alternative is none to pleasant.

'The all' is כל this is in contrast to 'the perfect' כלל. The double ל implies 'spiritual and fleshly'. Those who know God only as the all only know him as the flesh can know him. Those who know him as the perfect, know him in flesh and spirit.
