Gospel of Thomas - Chapter 078
- (77) Jesus said, "It is I who am the light which is above them all. It is I who am the all. From me did the all come forth, and unto me did the all extend. Split a piece of wood, and I am there. Lift up the stone, and you will find me there."
Light represents the Holiness of God. As seen previously the all is what can be known in the flesh about God, the perfect is what can be known in the flesh and the spirit.
The word עץ wood is two letters, when you split it, you find the blank page. God said that we are not to make any graven image of him. The blank page is the hieroglyphic symbol that we don't engrave. It is not polluted by the hand of man. It represents God himself; the perfect. The blank page is what you would find if you could lift the word stone off it. Jesus is the perfect, as represented by the blank page.
This is the same teaching as:
- Joh 8:58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.
