Coptic Thomas 22
Jesus saw infants being suckled. He said to his disciples: "These little ones being suckled are like those who enter the kingdom." They said to him: "Then will we enter the kingdom as little ones?" Jesus said to them: "When you make the two into one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside and the above like the below – that is, to make the male and the female into a single one, so that the male will not be male and the female will not be female – and when you make eyes instead of an eye and a hand instead of a hand and a foot instead of a foot, an image instead of an image, then you will enter [the kingdom]." © Patterson-Robinson
