“The Kingdom of Heaven is upon you”
-Gospel of Luke 11:20

 

“His disciples said to him, ‘When will the rest for the dead take place, and when will the new world come?’ Jesus said to them, ‘What you look for has come, but you do not know it’.”
-Gospel of Thomas 51

 

“Once Jesus was asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God was coming, and he answered, ‘The kingdom of God is not coming with things that can be observed; nor will they say, ‘Look, here it is!’ or ‘There it is!’ For, in fact, the kingdom of God is among you.”
-Gospel of Luke 17:20-21

 

“His disciples said to him, ‘When will the kingdom come?’. He answered, ‘It will not be said ‘Look, here it is,’ or ‘Look, there it is.’ Rather, the Father’s kingdom is spread out upon the earth and people do not see it’.”
-Gospel of Thomas 113

 

“Jesus said, ‘If your leaders say to you, ‘Look, the Kingdom is in the sky,’ then the birds will precede you. If they say to you, ‘It is in the sea,’ then the fish will precede you. Rather, the Kingdom is inside you and it is outside you”
-Gospel of Thomas 3

 

“And then if any person shall say to you, ‘Lo, here is Christ’; or, ‘lo, he is there’; believe him not.”
– Gospel of Mark 13:21

 

“Be on your guard so that no one deceives you by saying, ‘Look over here!’ or ‘Look over there!’ For the Child of True Humanity exists within you. Follow it! Those who search for it will find it.”
-Gospel of Mary 4:3-7
