WORDS OF JESUS
Unknown Sayings Dis
covered in Egypt
BURIED SINGE 200 A. D.
Variations From Accepted
texts Are Disclosed.
ADDRESSED TO ST. THOMAS
Papyri Near Cairo Are Dug Up by
Noted ArchaeologistEnds of
the Lines Are Often
LONDON, Nov. .14. Many, hitherto un
known eayings-'of Jesus Christ .have been
discovered in Egypt hy archeologlsts,
who have dug up papyrL hurled since the
second century, 100 miles south of Cairo.
lr. Bernard P. Grenfel, -who has been
engaged in Egyptian excavations since
JS94, at the "general meeting of the Egypt
, exploration fund here, yesterday gave the
Accompanied by Dr. Hunt, Dr. Gren
fel found a rich Ptolemaic necropolis at
El Hlbeh. The bulk of the documents
irom the one mound "consisted of a col
lection of sayings of Jesus. They are all
introduced with the words,, "Jesus salth,"
and for the most part are new. The ends
of the lines, unfortunately, are often oblit
erated. Apparently all the sayings were
addressed to St. Thomas. One of the most
remarkable ls:f t
"Let not him that seeketh cease from
his search until he finds, and when he
finds he shall wonder; wondering he shall
reach the kingdom, I. e., the Kingdom of
Heaven, and when he reaches the king
dom he shall have rest."
Dr. Grenfell remarked that enormous
Interest would be also aroused by the dis
coveries on account of the variations they
disclosed from accepted texts. One vari
ant of the mystical saying recorded In
St. Luke, "The Kingdom of God is within
you," was of great value, as the saying
in the papyrus appeared in quite different
surroundings from those attributed to it
by the evangelist and extended far into
According to Dr. Grenfell, these sayings
formed the new gospel which Is tradi
tionally associated with St. Thomas. An
interesting variation of the Gospel accord
ing to St. Luke, 11th chapter and 52d verse
("Woo unto you, lawyers, for ye have
taken away the key of knowledge; yet
entered not in yourselves, and them, that
wero entering in ye hindered"), reads in
the papyrus, "Ye have hidden the key of
knowledge; ye entered not yourselves and
to them that wero entering in ye did not
Another fragment contained a discourse
of Christ closely related to passages of
the sermon on the Mount, and a conver
sation between Christ and his disciples,
in which Christ answers a question as to
when his kingdom will be realized, say
ing: "When 3e return to the state of inno
cence which existed before the fall."
A valuable find was made in papyri,
written In Latin, giving the text of the
epistles to the Hebrews and epitome of
Llvy's Six Lost Books. This, with other
papyri, covering the period 150-137 B. C,
threw much new and valuable light on the
history of the world and marked the re
covery of hitherto classical literature of
A quaint instance of the business "meth
ods in vogue in 137 B. C. is shown in the

JAPAN FINDS FAULT WITH CZAR
Tactics In Manchurlan Matter Have
Been Dilatory Throughout.
PARIS, Nov. 14. It was learned today
from a trustworthy source that Japan
is dissatisfied with the progress of nego
tiations between that country and Russia.
The Japanese Parliament meets December
S and the government of Japan desires to
be able to report that it has reached an
agreement with Russia, as otherwise the
opposition party is certain to attack the
ministry violently, demand war with
Russia, and inflame public sentiment to
the war point.
It is pointed out that the negotiations
have dragged recently, especially while
the Czar and his Foreign Minister, Count
Lamsdorff, were absent from Russia,
Baron de Rossen, the Russian Minister at
Tokio, representing that nothing definite
could be obtained while they were away.
The Japanese allege that the Russian
tactics have been dilatory throughout.
They point out that Japan first broached
the subject of the Manchurlan conven
tion, and that when Russia did not fulfill
her pledge to evacuate the second prov
ince of Manchuria, Russia suggested that
the negotiations be deferred until Mr.
Lossar, the Russia Minister to China, who
was on leave of absence, return to Pe
kin. Then Japan renewed her overtures,
and Russia proposed a further delay until
the Russian War Minister, General Kora
patkln, had returned from his visit to
Japan. The Japanese consequently ex
pressed the opinion that the object of
Russian policy has been to gain time to
reinforce the army and navy of Russia In
the far East, so she might be prepared for
