    If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you.

    My version is interpreted somewhat differently. It reads:

    Jesus said, "That which you have will save you if you bring it forth from
    yourselves. That which you do not have within you will kill you if you
    do not have it within you."

    This is supposed to be from the doubting Thomas and it appears that
    his memory or understanding may have been flawed. For in the next
    verse 71 he writes that Jesus said, "I shall destroy this house, and no
    one will be able to rebuild it."

    His writings were not accepted by the church as being inspired.

    I think this is saying the same thing as the parable of the talents.

    If so, it is not nearly as clear as the parable of the talents.
