Jesus: Entering the Kingdom

"Jesus saw some babies nursing.
He said to his disciples:
"These babies nursing are like those
Who enter the kingdom.'
His disciples said to him:
"Shall we then enter the kingdom as babies?
" Jesus answered them and said:
'When you make the two into one,
"And when you make the inner like the outer,
'And the outer like the inner,
'And the upper like the lower,
'And when you make male and female
Into a single one,
"So that the male will not be male
'And the female not be female …
"Then you shall enter the kingdom."
