Jesus said, "Where there are three deities, they are divine. 2 Where there are two or one, I am with that one. [Complete Gospels]

[λέγ]ει [Ἰ(ησοῦ)ς· ὅπ]ου ἐὰν ὦσιν [τρ]ε[ῖς], ε[ἰσὶ]ν ἄθεοι· καὶ [ὅ]που ε[ἷς] ἐστιν μόνος, [λ]έγω· ἐγώ εἰμι μετ᾿ αὐτ[οῦ]. (Thomas 1:30 AGOSP-T)

= POxy1 30:1-4

[Jesus says], "Where there are [three, they are without] God, 2 and where there is only [one], I say, I am with that one. 3 Lift up the stone, and you will find me there. 4 Split a piece of wood, and I am there." [Complete Gospels]
