Submitted by JAMES DIXON (United States), Sep 14, 2016 at 17:01

24. His disciples said, "Show us the place where you are, for we must seek it."
He said to them, "Anyone here with two ears had better listen! There is light within a person of light, and it shines on the whole world. If it does not shine, it is dark." The Gospel of Thomas, Nag Hammadi Codices.

Quran surah #24 LIGHT

Allah is the light of the heavens and the earth. The similitude of His light is as a niche wherein is a lamp. The lamp is in a glass. The glass is as it were a shining star. (This lamp is) kindled from a blessed tree, an olive neither of the East nor of the West, whose oil would almost glow forth (of itself) though no fire touched it. light upon light. Allah guideth unto His light whom He will. And Allah speaketh to mankind in allegories, for Allah is Knower of all things.

And he for whom Allah hath not appointed light, for him there is no light.

The mystery of the ordering and origin of the 114 answers of the 114 parables as recorded by Thomas. The 114 are exact match context for context, content for content of the warring within the divided house of the inner man.
