The Pharisees said to him Gospel of Thomas Saying 91

(91) They said to him: Tell us who you are, that we may believe in you. He said to them: You test the face of the sky and of the earth, and him who is before you you have not known, and you do not know (how) to test this moment.

Saying 91
“They” that is the Pharisees tested him. The Pharisees did not have faith in the Christ so they did not recognize the one who was before them. They had the opportunity but they did not know how to read the sings of the times.

91) #They said to Him, "Tell us who You are so that we may believe in You." #He said to them, "You read the face [visible superficial aspects] of the sky [the higher/inward (spiritual) meanings] and of the earth [the lower/outward (fleshly) meanings], but you have not recognized the one [the heavenly being who is manifest in an earthly image] who is before you, and you do not know how to read this moment [how to perceive the higher/inward (spiritual) meanings within the lower/outward (carnal) images]."
