Thomas 39**



   1  Jesus said:


"Woe to you,    52 "Woe to you    
  scribes and Pharisees*     lawyers!   "The Pharisees and scribes*
  because you shut     for you have taken away   have taken away
  the kingdom of heaven     the key of knowledge;   the keys of knowledge
  against men;          and have hidden them.
  for you neither enter     you did not enter


They have not entered,
  yourselves,     yourselves,    
  nor allow     and you hindered   nor have they allowed


those who would enter     those who were entering."


those who want to enter
  to go in."         to do so."


**Note: In the gospel of Thomas this saying concludes with the aphorism about serpents & doves which Matthew appends to Jesus' mission instructions to the 12.
