06] I would like to know why this is so! And why did Moses in the law addresses so much more the man than the woman? Does the woman belong less to the human race than the man?”
07] Said I: “Now, this your criticism is still acceptable, although it also walks only alongside the truth. See, here also the true and pure neighborly love comes to the foreground, and this concerns the woman in the same way as the man.
08] If you, for example, are the wife of a decent man, - would it make you happy if the wife of your neighbor desires your husband and does with him what is not right? If you in your heart certainly would not approve of it, that something like this happens to you, then you must behave towards your neighbor in just the same way as you wish that your neighbor behaves towards you. And what has been said in the law for the man, applies in an equal measure for the woman.
09] God gave only according to the wording the basic commandment to the man alone, just like He gave to the human head the main senses and through them the intellect in the brain. And just as God speaks for the time being only to the mind of man, He also speaks to the man as the head of the woman, since so to speak the wife is the body of the man. If the head of a person becomes illuminated and insightful, - will not in the same measure the whole body becomes insightful?
10] If the mind of the person becomes properly illuminated, then soon also the heart of a person becomes illuminated, which will with pleasure submit to the orderly reason of the mind. But the wife also corresponds to the heart of the man; and if the man as the head is properly illuminated, equally will also the wife as his heart become and be illuminated.
11] Since ancient times it is written that man and woman are one body. Therefore, what has been said to the man, is also said to the woman.
12] And see, by that, I have shown to you the nullity of this your doubt and have shown you the right light of the law, which you have certainly comprehended well. And since that has been properly understood, you can continue with your criticism.” (THE GREAT GOSPEL OF JOHN vol. 7, chap 32)
