working together for the future of faith
(2) 1Q: Matt 10:27 = Luke 12:3
(1) Thom 33:1
33 Jesus said, "What you will hear in your ear, in the other ear proclaim from your rooftops. 2 After all, no one lights a lamp and puts it under a basket, nor does one put it in a hidden place. 'Rather, one puts it on a lampstand so that all who come and go will see its light." [Complete Gospels]
(2) 1Q: Matt 10:27
10:27 What I say to you in the dark, tell in the light; and what you hear whispered, proclaim from the housetops.
= Luke 12:3
12:3 Therefore whatever you have said in the dark will be heard in the light, and what you have whispered behind closed doors will be proclaimed from the housetops.

Common Sayings Tradition: Yes
Crossan [Historical Jesus, 349] draws on this cluster for his discussion of "the Message of an Open Secret." Other complexes used for this purpose include two that focus on the openness of the message: 9 Who Has Ears [1/5] and 53 Knowing the Times [1/3?]; four that share the same theme but may involve a move in emphasis from Jesus himself to the disciples as "healed healers:" 21 The World's Light [1/4], 36 Lamp and Bushel [1/3], 78 The Mountain City [1/2] and 79 Open Proclamation [1/2]; and five others judged less likely to derive from Jesus himself: 66 Wise and Understanding [1/2], 45 Father and Son [1/3], 52 Yoke and Burden [1/3], 67 Hidden Since Eternity [1/2], and 14 Eye, Ear, Mind [1/4].
[The] appeal to common nature rather than special Scripture goes back to Jesus, ... the missionaries have a message that is neither private nor clandestine, neither hidden nor occult, neither secret nor mysterious. (p. 349)
