Translated from the Cidade Calenixness and at one time this article was alleged to have been in the British Museum. The manuscript, supposedly found in Oxyrynchus in Egypt, was written on the back-side of a landsurveyor's list of measurements and was very old. It's authenticity has since been proven to be a hoax, as regards its alleged history with the British Museum, as the British Museum routinely gives inquirers a disclaimer regarding this item. Interested readers may wish to look up the article, RECENTLY DISCOVERED SAYINGS OF JESUS in the February, 1904 issue of the Christian Science Journal, pp 649-655.
John said: - "Master, is there any material universe?"
Jesus answered: -"No."
John asked: - "Is there matter?"
Jesus answered: - "No."
John asked: - "Is there a material body?"
Jesus hesitated a long time and finally said: - "Saints believed that their bodies were fashioned of clay and this believing brought them [to] death."
Jesus said: - "Let not him who seeketh cease from seeking until he hath found: -
. . . And when he hath found, he shall be amazed -
. . . And when he hath been amazed, he shall reign -
. . . And when he shall reign, he shall have rest.
. . . The kingdom of heaven is within you and whosoever shall know himself shall find it.
. . . Strive therefore, to know yourselves and ye shall know that you are in The City of God, and ye are The City."
