Texts

(1) Thom 19:1

Jesus said, "Congratulations to the one who came into being before coming into being. 2 If you become my disciples and pay attention to my sayings, these stones will serve you. 3 For there are five trees in Paradise for you; they do not change, summer or winter, and their leaves do not fall. 4 Whoever knows them will not taste death." [Complete Gospels]
