the well Gospel of Thomas Saying 74




(74) He said: Lord, there are many about the well, but no one in the well.

The many people here that are around the well are the many called but they are not the few chosen that are selected by Jesus. The many are those who flirt with the truth having a form of religious devotion, but none of whom are willing to take the water of life from the well. That is they have not committed themselves to Jesus to dedicate ones self to Jesus means leaving behind all other world ties in your life and becoming ‘solitary’ or ’single one.

74) He said, "O Lord, there are many around the drinking trough [hearing/seeing the scriptures, the water of Life], but there is nothing in the [common] cistern [these are still trying to drink from the common (false) cistern set up by religious leaders and there is no way to draw out any water from it for they are like "waterless clouds" and a wilderness (desert) or "dry places"]."
