Mary Magdalene twelfth and most loved disciple 1. Gospel of Philip 49Wisdom and Mary of Magdala Wisdom, who is called barren, is the mother of the angels. The companion of the [savior] is Mary of Magdala. The [savior loved] her more than [all] the disciples, [and he] kissed her often on her [mouth]. The other [disciples] …said to him, “Why do you love her more than all of us?” The savior answered and said to them, “Why do I not love you like her? If a blind person and one who can see are both in darkness, they are the same. When the light comes, one who can see will see the light, and the blind person will stay in darkness.” 2. Secret Gospel of Mary 4. A woman asked Mary, “Are you the one the Lord loved dearly?” Mary said, “The Lord loved the world, and he gave light and life to the world, so that no longer would anyone have to live in darkness. He loved me as the Soul of the World, so that embracing me he might embrace the world and uplift it to the bridal chamber. I am she whom the Lord loves, as is the soul of light in you. The one who finds me will find the Anointed, for I am the house in which the Lord dwells.” 3. Gospel of Mary 5) Peter said to Mary, Sister we know that the Savior loved you more than the rest of woman. 6) Tell us the words of the Savior which you remember which you know, but we do not, nor have we heard them. 7) Mary answered and said, What is hidden from you I will proclaim to you. 4. Gospel of Mary 8) But if the Savior made her worthy, who are you indeed to reject her? Surely the Savior knows her very well. 9) That is why He loved her more than us. 5. Mary Magdelena was next to him in the painting in the last supper John 13:23 Now there was leaning on Jesus' bosom one of his disciples, whom Jesus loved. Gospel of Philip 36 There were three who always walked with the Lord: Mary, his mother, and her sister, and Magdalene, the one who was called his companion. His sister and his mother and his companion were each a Mary. At Crucifixion 6. John 19:26 26 When Jesus saw his mother there, and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to her, “Woman,here is your son,” 6. - Who was their at the Crucifixion, the guys were gone fear of crucifixion. - John 19:25 25, Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, (2) or, Clopas and Mary Magdalene. Who was their at the Crucifixion, the guys were gone fear of crucifixion. Matthew 27:56 56 Among them were Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James and Joseph, and the mother of Zebedee’s sons. Same matter it seems but translation problem or changes by "scribes, writers" John 21:20-24. 20 Then Peter, turning about, seeth the disciple whom Jesus loved following; which also leaned on his breast at supper, and said, Lord, which is he that betrayeth thee? 21 Peter seeing him saith to Jesus, Lord, and what shall this man do? 22 Jesus saith unto him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? follow thou me. 23 Then went this saying abroad among the brethren, that that disciple should not die: yet Jesus said not unto him, He shall not die; but, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? 24 This is the disciple which testifieth of these things, and wrote these things: and we know that his testimony is true. 7. Gospel of Thomas 114 Simon Peter said to them: Let Mariham go out from among us, for women are not worthy of the life. Jesus said: Look, I will lead her that I may make her male, in order that she too may become a living spirit resembling you males. For every woman who makes herself male will enter into the kingdom of heaven. "Note" Male might be a mis translation or a unknown word, but my guess is a creation of our Father in Heaven Spirit combination of being, not a gender but a aspect.
