Certain passages in the Gospel of Thomas, for example, suggest that all humans have within themselves the source of their own salvation. "The [Father's] imperial rule is inside you and outside you," Jesus says at one point. "When you know yourselves, then you will be known, and you will understand that you are children of the living Father." As Pagels explained, "In the Gospel of Thomas, the good news is not just about Jesus. The good news is also about you and me. We all were brought forth from the same source. ... Like Thomas, whose name means twin, you are the twin of Jesus on a deep level."
