Gospel of Thomas Saying 42




42 Jesus says: "You must be <as> passers-by!"

Here Jesus is telling us to come into being, as we pass by, (see interlinear) all other teachings accept those of Jesus’ and commit himself to him alone. Jesus is instructing us to pass by the teachings of the Pharisees and others teachers.
Also Here Jesus is telling us to come into being, as we pass by, [the thinking of the flesh] see interlinear. Now the coming into being is when we are born again that is to say put on the new man and pass by the old man the thinking of the flesh, which is hostile to God. come into being by water and by the spirit in our days this is done by the spirit-word and baptism but in the apostles days they were baptised with holy spirit and in the age to come they and others will be baptised

42) Jesus said, "Become passers-by [in the world - "do not turn to your right hand nor your left; remove thy foot from evil"]."
