Gospel of Mary|
The Blessed One greeted them saying. "Peace be with you. Receive my peace into yourselves. Beware that no one lead you astray saying Lo here or Lo there! For the Son of Man is within you. Follow after Him! Those who seek him will find him. Go then and preach the gospel of the Empire of God.
Do not lay down any rules beyond what I appointed you, and do not give a law like the lawgiver lest you be constrained by it."
When he had finished speaking he left.
But the disciples were grieved. They wept greatly, saying, "How shall we go to the Gentiles and preach the gospel of the Empire of the Son of Man? If they did not spare Him, how will they spare us?"
Then Mary stood up, greeted them all, and said to her brothers, "Do not weep and do not grieve nor be irresolute, for God's grace will fully be with you and will protect you. Instead, let us praise the greatness of God, for preparing us and making us fully human."
When Mary said this, she turned their hearts to the Good and they began to discuss the words of the Savior.
