Jesus said, “There are many standing at the door, but it is the solitary one who will enter the bridal chamber.”
By now, the meaning behind these sayings of Jesus from the Gospel of Thomas should begin to become more apparent to you. As in this saying where Jesus, once again, contrasts for us the foolishness and emptiness of “the many” as compared to the success and the wisdom of “the solitary one.”
Over and over again in these sayings we see Jesus referring to the Kingdom as being accessible only to the one and not to the many. As when he speaks of the “wise fisherman” [saying 8] who discards all of the many little fish in favor of the one large fish, or when he speaks of how entering the Kingdom of God hinges on understanding how the two must become one [saying 24], Jesus here, once again, tells us that the many will stand at the door of the bridal chamber but only the one, single, solitary, integrated, whole person may enter in.
