Saying 24: His disciples said: “Teach us about the place where you are, for it is necessary for us to seek it.” He said to them: “He who has ears, let him hear! There is light within a man of light, and he lights the whole world. If he does not shine, he is darkness.”
Once again, the disciples of Jesus play the role of clueless followers who are still struggling to grasp the concepts of non-duality and Oneness with God and everything. Here, they ask Jesus a question which, itself, seems foolish: “Teach us about the place where you are…” As if they cannot plainly see where Jesus is – he is obviously with them, and that, in itself is the answer to their own question. Jesus has already said, in Saying 3, that “The Kingdom of God is inside of you and outside of you.” So, the place where [Jesus] is – the Kingdom – is where they already are, and it is also inside of them.
