This article deals with the parable about pulling up the tares in the Coptic Gospel of Thomas (log. 57). It interprets this parable in the literary and theological context of this gospel and compares it with its parallel in the Gospel according to Matthew.

The paper deals with Aquinas' concept of the individuation of material beings.

These two directions of intentionality determine themselves mutually. There is the place of unconditioned truth and values, not to reach in a perception, but in an act of astonishment or a kind of revelation.
