An Op-Ed blog by April DeConick, featuring discussions of the Nag Hammadi collection, Tchacos Codex,
and other Christian apocrypha, but mostly just the things on my mind.

97.13-15 perhaps is based on the imagery in Mt 25:33-35,41 where the saved are the right of the Son of Man and the damned to his left and the saved (turn right to?) enter the Kingdom of heaven and damned (turn left to?) enter the eternal fire.In line with this, what immediately follows could also be based on Mt--with eating in the Kingdom of the Heavens (97.15-18) relating to Mt 8:11-12 and with the declaration that you are the salt of the earth and the lamp that illumines the world (97.19-22) relating to Mt 5:13-15 and with the admonition to not sleep nor slumber (97.23-24) relating to Mt 24:42-44 and with the garment of the Kingdom (97.27-28) relating to Mt 22:11-12 and with the blood of the grape with which the Savior bought this garment (97.28-29) relating to Mt 26:27-29.
