The Gospel of Thomas

Translated by
Thomas O. Lambdin
The Revelation of Jesus Christ

As Seen by St. John The Divine
(Perhaps while Meditating on The Gospel of Christ)

(95) Jesus said, "If you have money, do not lend it at interest, but give it to one from whom you will not get it back."

Have money
[19:12] His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
[19:13] And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
[19:14] And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
[19:15] And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.

Had a name... his name

Taken from the "Gospel of Philip"

"The Name" of Christ, like Money is something that is sometimes borrowed at interest.

"If one goes down into the water and comes up without having received anything, and says "I am a Christian," he has borrowed the name at interest. But if he receives the Holy Spirit, he has the name as a gift. He who has received a gift does not have to give it back, but of him who has borrowed it at interest, payment is demanded. This is the way it happens to one when he experiences a mystery."
