dear Nichael,
  Actually, logion 114 of the Gospel of Thomas is a school debate in which
the Chauvinist view of Peter must be rejected by the teacher. For his reply,
Jesus affirms that there is only one way to salvation, that of the masculine
spirit, and promises that he will lead Mary on this very path - "so that she
too shall become a living spirit like unto you gentlemen". The Valentinians
make much of the union of the feminine soul and the masculline spirit as can
be seen in The Exegesis of the Soul, Codex II, Nag Hammadi.
   best wishes, richard arthur Merrimack NH
