      The earliest mention of the Gospel of Thomas by name is in Hippolytus, Refutation of All Heresies.

      Saying 2 is quoted twice by Clement of Alexandria in the Stromateis, but it is ascribed to the Gospel of the Hebrews.

      2 Clement 12.2 (I believe) is parallel to Saying 22 (I believe).

      Both these near verbatim parallels can also be dated to the late second century.
