Twin who is called the Twin

Jesus said, “This heaven will pass away, and the one above it will pass away. The dead are not alive, and the living will not die. During the days when you ate what is dead, you made it alive. When you are in the light, what will you do? On the day when you were one, you became two. But when you become two, what will you do?”
The disciples said to Jesus, “We know that you are going to leave us. Who is going to be our leader then?”
Jesus said to them, “Wherever you are, you are to go to James the Just, for whose sake heaven and earth came into being.”
Jesus said to his disciples, “Compare me to someone and tell me whom I am like.”
Simon Peter said to him, “You are like a righteous messenger.”
Matthew said to him, “You are like a wise philosopher.”
Thomas said to him, “Master, my mouth is utterly unable to say what you are like.”
Jesus said, “I am not your master. Because you have drunk, you have become intoxicated from the bubbling spring that I have tended.”
And he took him, and withdrew, and spoke three sayings to him.
When Thomas came back to his companions, they asked him, “What did Jesus say to you?”
Thomas said to them, “If I tell you even one of the sayings he spoke to me, you will pick up rocks and stone me. Then fire will come forth from the rocks and devour you.”
