Due to a busy weekend,
I wasn't online to answer your replies cjb. "Ask and ye shall receive..."
First, I did not say Jesus had a feminine side - I said God did. In the Kabbalah, Sheckinah is the feminine aspect of God, of God's radiant Light.
In Christian Gnosticism, Pistia Sophia refers to the Mother of Gods or Wisdom that transcends deities. These sources are available in the translated Kabbalah text, and the Nag Hammadi Texts written by early Christians & Gnostic Christians. Gnosis refers to knowledge, and thus Gnostics believed knowledge as the ultimate source of salvation.
Now, to cite direct Biblical passages that God had a possible feminine side:
"Does not wisdom call, and does not understanding raise her voice. On the heights, beside the way, at the crossroads she takes her stand; beside the gates in front of the town, at the entrance of the portals she cries out: To you, O people, I call, and my cry is to all that live. O simple ones, learn prudence; acquire intelligence for those who lack it..." Proverbs 8:1-5 NRSV Translation.
"The Lord created me at the beginning of his work, the first acts of long ago. Ages ago I was set up, at the first, before the beginning of the earth"
Proverbs 8:22-23 NRSV Translation.
"Wisdom has built her house, she has hewn her seven pillars" Proverbs 9:1 NRSV Translation.
"For wisdom is a kindly spirit, and will not free a blasphemer from the guilt of her words" Wisdom of Solomon 1:6 RSV Catholic Edition.
"Wisdom rescued from troubles those who served her" Wisdom of Solomon 10:9 RSV Catholic Edition.
As you can see, cjb, the Protestant & Catholic translations of the Bible both refer to the feminine side of God, Wisdom, also called the Holy Spirit (Pistia Sophia).
Logos/The Word does refer to Jesus, I agree, as God Made Flesh as the "spirit made truth."
