27. (Yeshua says:) Unless you fast from the system, you shall not find the Sovereignty {of God}; unless you keep the (entire) week as Sabbath, you shall not behold the Father.

27. (Yeshúa dice:) A menos que ayunéis del sistema, no encontraréis la soberanía {de Dios}; a menos que mantengáis la semana (entera) como sábado, no veréis al Padre.


1Papyrus MS 07, Guillaumont 12 and Grondin 23-27 & 27-29; Gk fragment.

2As also noted by Marvin Meyer (Biblio.9, Textual Notes), the two different spellings here (sambaton and sabbaton) would support reading ‘week’ for the former and ‘Sabbath’ for the latter; see P. Brown, ‘The Sabbath and the Week in Thomas 27, Novum Testamentum, 1992, and P133. Thus Lev 23:15-16: ‘And from the day after the sabbath, from the day on which you bring the sheaf of the elevation offering, you shall count off seven sabbaths [weeks]; they shall be complete. You shall count until the day after the seventh sabbath [week], fifty days; then you shall present an offering of new grain to the LORD.’
