S62    FRUIT  from THORNS ***  
Matt 7    Mark   Luke 6 Thom 45
           1  Jesus said:
7 "You will know them    44  "For each tree is known    
  by their fruits.     by its own fruit.    
  Are grapes* gathered**     For figs* are not gathered**   "Grapes* are not harvested
  from thorns,     from thorns,   from thorn trees
  or figs*     nor are grapes* picked   nor are figs* gathered**
  from thistles?"     from a bramble bush."   from thistles,
            they do not produce fruit."

* Note: Luke's sequence of fruit is the reverse of that in Matthew & Thomas.

** Note: Thomas' verb sequence differs from that in Matthew & Luke.
