84)  Jesus said, "When you see your likeness, you rejoice. But when you see your images which came into being before you, and which neither die nor become manifest, how much will you bear!"

85)  Jesus said, "Adam came into being from a great power and a great wealth, and yet he did not become worthy of you. For had he been worthy, he would not have tasted death."
