How Does an Earthquake Shake? November 6, 2009


How Does an Earthquake Shake? (132,19-133, 21)

(p.305) Judas answered and said, “Tell me, master, how does an [earthquake] shake when it shakes the earth?”

The master picked up a stone and held it in his hand. [He said to him, “What] am I holding in my hand?”

He answered, “[It is] a stone.”

He said to them, “What supports the [earth] is also what supports heaven. When a word comes from the Majesty, it will go to what supports heaven and earth. The earth does not move. If it moved, it would collapse. But it does not, so that the first word might not fail. The word established the world and dwelled in it and smelled the fragrance from it. [47] I make known to you, all you children of humanity, all [the things] that do not move, for you are from that place. You live in the hearts of those who speak out in joy and truth. If the word comes from the Father’s body, among people, and they do not receive it, it will return back to its place.”

Notes:

[47] It is also possible to translate this sentence as follows: “The word established the world, and the world came to be through the word, and the world received fragrance from the word.” The Coptic text employs ambiguous pronouns throughout the sentence.
