Apocryphote of the Day: 3-11-08

"Be earnest about the word! For as to the word, its first part is faith, the second is love, the third is works. From these comes life...You can receive the kingdom of heaven. But unless you receive it through knowledge, you will not be able to find it."

Apocryphon of James 8.10-15, 25-27 (ca. mid-second century; probably Valentinian text)
