The passage that you quote is from the new edition of Perrin-Duling
(or, as it is now noted Duling-Perrin) is from their chapter on the
development of the canon of the NT. One feature of this book is the
extensive bibliography that they include at the end of each chapter
(a feature this book shares with many/most other of the so-called
"introductions" to the NT). Perhaps this would be a good place to
search for Perrin/Duling's arguments in support of the ten-book
model of Paul --or the bibliography to the chapter on the Pauline
Epistles (chapt 7).

Dear Nichael,

        Thank you so very much for you advice! I have looked through
the 'FURTHER READING' section at the end of both sections, 4 & 7;
maybe I am overlooking an important article. Can you point to one
in particular that addresses the specific question that I raised?

Peace and Love

Simon Peter said to them, 'Let Mary leave us, for women are not
worthy of life,' Jesus said, 'I myself shall make her male, so that
she too may become a living spirit resembling male. For every woman
who will make herself male will enter the kingdom of Heaven."
