#114 (But I say to you): “Every woman who makes herself male will enter the kingdom of heaven. Interpretation please. How difficult is this parable?
Women are not allowed to become a "סופר Sofer" (Scribe) in Pharisaic Judaism. - This tradition is based on Gittin 45b from the Talmud & later maintained by Paul in 1 Timothy 2:11-13.
[Talmud Gittin 45b] : "Sifrei Torah, tefillin and mezuzot written by a heretic, a star-worshipper, a slave, a woman, a minor, a Cuthean, or an apostate Jew, are unfit for ritual use."
[1 Timothy 2:11-13] : " A woman must quietly receive instruction with entire submissiveness. But I do not allow a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man, but to remain quiet. For it was Adam who was first created, and then Eve."
A Male Scribe or סופר Sofer represents God's Hand when His Word is to be documented & interpreted. The symbolic Hand י was assigned to אִ֖ישׁ "man" in Genesis 2:23 showing first the likeness of Elohim is "fire אש" + "hand י", before the second likeness of Elohim was assigned to "woman" אִשָּׁ֔ה = "fire אש" + "praise ה".
Genesis / Bereishit 2:23 [MT] : "This one shall be called ishah because this one was taken from eish." ( לְזֹאת֙ יִקָּרֵ֣א אִשָּׁ֔ה כִּ֥י מֵאִ֖ישׁ לֻֽקֳחָה־זֹּֽאת )
By becoming a סופר Sofer, a Woman's status would be the same as an adult Jewish male who develops the Hand for documenting, interpreting & teaching God's Word, instead of only receiving & praising it. - As stated in the Gospel of Thomas .
(114) Simon Peter said to them, "Mary should leave us, for females are not worthy of life." Jesus said, "See, I am going to attract her to make her male so that she too might become a living spirit that resembles you males. For every female (element) that makes itself male will enter the kingdom of heaven." [ http://earlychristianwritings.com/thomas/gospelthomas114.html ]
