Two will rest on a bed:

the one will die, and the other will live.

 

 

 

Comments:

 

This saying indicates that realizing the kingdom is not something that ‘comes down’

one way or another on people in general, but depends on the individual him/herself in

making the right choice and putting in the right effort/ has toiled (saying-58).

Two people may hear the same message, but the one who takes action will live = will find

the kingdom. It is the one who finds the interpretation of these sayings who will live (saying-1).

I guess we may take this saying also as a hyperbole, rather than see it as

an eschatological verdict as in Luke.
