Maria Maddalena, Maria madre di Gesł e Marta

 

. P 09/03/2008. E 24/11/2007.

Da quale divinitą derivava Maria, la madre di Gesł?

Gesł invece si incarna in Maria, un nome che in questo testo rappresenta sia la madre e che la prostituta Maddalena. Di Martha discuteremo in altre pagine {1212}.

Ecco come Gesł si rivolge alla Maddalena:

And Jesus, the compassionate, answered and said unto Mary: "Mary, thou blessed one, whom I will perfect in all mysteries of those of the height, discourse in openness, thou, whose heart is raised to the kingdom of heaven more than all thy brethren."

It came to pass then, when Mary had finished saying these words, that he said: "Well said, Mary, for thou art blessed before all women on the earth, |because thou shalt be the fulness of all fulnesses and the perfection of all perfections."

La Maddalena ricambia tanti onori con un atteggiamento che noi conosciamo anche dai vangeli canonici {675}:

Now when Mary had heard the Saviour speak these words, she exulted greatly, and she came before Jesus, fell down before him, adored his feet and said unto him:

Allo stesso modo leggiamo di Marta:

It came to pass then, before Jesus had finished speaking, that Martha came forward, fell down at his feet, kissed them, cried aloud and wept with lamentation and in humbleness, saying:

e di Maria, madre di Gesł:

And Mary, the mother of Jesus, again came forward, fell down at his feet, kissed them and said:

Riteniamo interessante questo passo in cui Gesł si rivolge a sua madre Maria (distinguendola dall'altra) come fosse derivata dalla divinitą gnostica Barbelo {918}:

And Jesus answered and said: "Thou also, Mary, hast received form which is in Barbelo, according to matter, and hast received likeness which is in the Virgin of Light, according to light, thou and the other Mary, the blessed one; and on thy account the darkness hath arisen, and moreover out of thee did come forth the material body in which I am, which I have purified and refined.

Si tratta di un concetto che, se equiparato alla seguente frase, conferma la coincidenza di questa Pistis Sophia con la figlia di Barbelo stessa:

Again he drew a power out of the Pistis the Sophia daughter of Barbelo and bound it to Aphrodite.
