(1) Thom 61:1
Jesus said, "Two will recline on a couch; one will die, one will live." 2 Salome said, "Who are you, mister? You have climbed onto my couch and eaten from my table as if you are from someone." 3 Jesus said to her, "I am the one who comes from what is whole. I was granted from the things of my Father." 4 "I am your disciple." 5 "For this reason I say, if one is (whole), one will be filled with light, but if one is divided, one will be filled with darkness." [Complete Gospels]
