labourers Gospel of Thomas Saying 73

(73) Jesus said: The harvest is indeed great, but the labourers are few. But pray the Lord, that he send forth labourers into the harvest.

This is another variation on the theme 'Many are called but few are chosen' (Matthew 22.14).
The saying is about the selection of the worthy few. The worthy disciples are few hardworking field hands bringing in a large harvest.

73)## Jesus said, "The harvest [of the fruit of God's Word] is great but the laborers [Elect who toil day and night for this food] are few ["many are called but few are chosen."]. Beseech the Lord, therefore, to send out [call more] laborers to the harvest."
