1 Corinthians 2:9 “It Is Written.”

However, as it is written: “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him”

//As it is written,” Paul says. But where is this written?

Here it is, in a Gnostic text thought to be written after Paul died:

Jesus said, “I will give you what no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, what no hand has touched, and what has not arisen in the human heart.” –Gospel of Thomas, saying 17

So Paul quoted words that he says “are written,” and the Gospel of Thomas attributes these very words to Jesus. Does this mean the words of Jesus were written down by someone decades before scholars think any of the Gospels were penned? Makes you think.
