Apocryphote of the Day: 7-21-08

Jesus said, "A person can bring forth only what is within him."

`Abdallah ibn Qutayba, `Uyun 2.370 (from the Muslim Jesus)

Commentary: In terms of spirituality and humanity, I find this saying of Jesus to be particularly intense. In a few words, everything is captured. I will post parallels to this saying in the next few apocryphotes.

For those interested, Gregg Braden, studies the relationship between science and spirituality which relates tremendously with this Muslim saying from Jesus.

Thanks, Dr. D!
