Notes and quotes.

§ The Shepherd of Hermas, Similitude 9.31.2:

Oportet autem circumcidi hoc saeculum ab illis et vanitates opum suarum, et tunc convenient in dei regnum. necesse est enim eos intrare in dei regnum, hoc enim genus innocuum benedixit dominus. ex hoc ergo genere non intercidet quisquam. etenim licet quis eorum temptatus a nequissimo diabolo aliquid deliquerit, cito recurret ad dominum suum.

This age, moreover, must be cut down from these things, and the vanities of their wealth, and then they will convene in the kingdom of God. For it is necessary for them to enter into the kingdom of God, for the Lord has blessed this innocent race. No one of this race, therefore, will be lost. For, though it is allowed that any one of them be tempted by the most wicked devil and become delinquint, he will quickly return to his Lord.

§ Thomas 86:

ΠΕϪΕ Ι̅C̅ ϪΕ [ΝΒΑϢΟΡ ΟΥΝ̅Τ]ΑΥΝΟΥ[Β]ΗΒ ΑΥΩ Ν̅ϨΑΛΑΤΕ ΟΥΝ̅ΤΑΥ Μ̅ΜΑΥ Μ̅ΠΕΥΜΑϨ ΠϢΗΡΕ ΔΕ Μ̅ΠΡΩΜΕ ΜΝ̅ΤΑϤ Ν̅Ν[Ο]ΥΜΑ ΕΡΙΚΕ Ν̅ΤΕϤΑΠΕ Ν̅ϤΜ̅ΤΟΝ Μ̅Μ[Ο]Ϥ.

Jesus said: The foxes have their holes and the birds have their nests, but the son of man has no place to lay his head and rest.
