Thankfully, ancient script has been uncovered that enriches our understanding of the teachings of Jesus. The Gospel of Thomas was not included in the New Testament. This is one excerpt.
Gospel of Thomas
These are the secret sayings which the living Jesus spoke and which Didymos Judas Thomas wrote down
If you bring forth what is within you
what you bring forth will save you
If you do not bring forth what is within you
What you do not bring forth will destroy you
