CW i believe the dualistic gnostic myth bears no relation to the original Christianity and was a gentile construct, but there was some sense where they shared some kind of distant link to the original and in their view orthodox Christianity was a mistake caused by a female. Moving over to the orthodox side we find a female being involved, Mary being first witness and thinly disguised again as the woman at the well, but her influence was played down obscuring it a bit but she was a leader early on in conflict with the apostle i suspect
I think this means is that the early movement was more Jewish!

Don't disagree a bit!

Note also that in the "Wolf, Wolf!" Judaic Passage the woman's name is "Miriam":
"Immar-Yah-Em" => possibly "One (Acolyte) of the Lamb of Yah's/God's."

The other:
"Mary" => "immar-Yah", more directly "Lamb of Yah/God"
