Parallels

(1b) Jeremiah 15

Quoted by Origen, in his Homily on Jeremiah 15:

If someone can accept this---"Just now my mother, the holy spirit, took me by one of my hairs and brought me to Tabor, the great mountain"---one can see that she is his mother. [Complete Gospels]


(1c) Mic 7:6

Quoted and explained by Jerome, in hia Commentary on Micah:

Whoever has read the Song of Songs will understand that the word of God is also the bridegroom of the soul. And whoever gives credence to the gospel circulating under the title "Gospel of the Hebrews," which we recently translated, in which it is said by the Saviour himself, "Just now my mother, the holy spirit, took me by one of my hairs," will not hesitate to say that the word of God proceeds from the spirit, and that the soul, which is the bride of the word, has the holy spirit (which in Hebrew is feminine in gender, RUA) as a mother-in-law. [Complete Gospels]


(1d) Isa 40:9

Quoted and explained by Jerome, in his Commentary on Isaiah 11:

In the Gospel of the Hebrews that the Nazarenes read it says, "Just now my mother, the holy spirit, took me." Now no one should be offended by this, because "spirit" in Hebrew is feminine, while in our language (Latin) it is masculine and in Greek it is neuter. In divinity, however, there is no gender. [Complete Gospels]


(1e) Ezek 16:13

Quoted and explained by Jerome, in his Commentary on Ezekiel:

In the Book of Judges we read "Deborah," which means "bee." Her prophecies are the sweetest honey and refer to the holy spirit, who is called in Hebrew by a feminine noun. In the Gospel of the Hebrews that the Nazarenes read, the Savior indicates this by saying, "Just now my mother, the holy spirit, whisked me away." [Complete Gospels]
