Well this weekend , I discovered an article on Wikipedia concerning the Female Disciples of Jesus. And I added a lot of supporting links and I would like to share that here at Occult Corpus;
Some discoveries I have made recently include;
According to the Gnostic Apocrypha Pistis Sophia , Christ called 7 female apostles and a few of these are prevalent speakers in PS ; Mary Magdalene, Martha, Mary mother of Christ and Mary Salome.
Thecla and Mary Magdalene wrote apocryphal Gospels . But Thecla is also conjectured to have written the introductory chapters of the Acts of the Apostles and she definitely co-authored Acts of Paul and Thecla. She was a martyr for the church/
In Romans, Paul states that Junia is a prominent apostle . Junia is one of the founders of the church of Rome and was imprisoned as a Christian.
In the apocryphal Pistis Sophia Mary is honoured above all other apostles, "higher than the brethren. "
Also I came across material which suggests that John the apostle might have been the nephew of Christ. His father is Zebedee. His mother might be Mary Salome who
is suggested to be one of the sisters of Christ. Zebedee might be the brother of Joseph and this would make Mary Salome both daughter and sister in law to Mary mother of Christ.
Anyway more pertinent to the occult are the light mysteries of the Pistis Sophia which are a difficult to digest exegesis concerning the creation of the immortal light body and the Greater Soul or Magnum Opus.
What do you think about all of this ?
What is your opinion on female disciples and female apostles?
