You can't see it here, only in the Research Library, and I was wondering why these scriptures have lines going through them?
The Gospel of Thomas Fragments from Oxyrhynchus
Prologue and Saying 1 (pOxy 654.1-5)
These are the [hidden] sayings [that] the living Jesus [sp]oke a[nd Judas who] is also Thomas [recorded.] And he said, "[Whoever finds the interpretat]ion of the[se] sayings will not taste [death]."
Coptic version of same saying as found in the Nag Hammadi manuscript: These are the secret sayings which the living Jesus spoke and which Didymos Judas Thomas wrote down. And he said, "Whoever finds the interpretation of these sayings will not experience death."
Saying 2 (pOxy. 654.5-9)
[Jesus said,] "Let the one seek[ing] not stop [seeking until] he finds. And when he find veling he will reign, an[d reigning] he will [rest.]”
Coptic version: Jesus said, "Let him who seeks continue seeking until he finds. When he finds, he will become troubled. When he becomes troubled, he will be astonished, and he will rule over the All."
