How the Mother God Got Spayed

I was reading April DeConick‘s article “Biblical Views: How the Mother God Got Spayed” in the Biblical Archaeology Review. While I enjoyed it, I imagine that a few fundamentalists’ heads will explode after reading this article.

So what happened to the Mother Spirit in Christianity? She was neutered (or spayed, if you prefer) as the language shifted from Aramaic into Greek, where “spirit” lost her female coding. In Hebrew and Aramaic, “spirit” is a feminine word. In Greek, it is a neuter word. In Latin, it is a masculine word.

Check it out, I think you’ll enjoy the article and the rest of Biblical Archaeology Review for that matter.
