S62    KNOWN  by  FRUIT  
Matt 7     Mark   Luke 6
7* "You will know them    44  "For each tree is known
  by their fruits.     by its own fruit.
S66 ---      
20* "Thus you will know them       
  by their fruits."      

* Note: Matthew repeats this saying at the beginning & end of this cluster of sayings, Luke does not. Matthew also ascribes a more proverbial form of this botanical principle -- "For the tree is known by its fruit" -- to Jesus in another context [Matt 15:33].  Ignatius, bishop of Antioch at the beginning of the 2nd c. CE, uses the same formula -- "the tree is known by its fruits" [Ephes. 14:2] -- without identifying it as a saying of Jesus.
