KNGDV: Aramaic and Mandean linguistic support; Eve rescues, guides, leads, kngdv

 The Genesis Papers. 
Understanding, or Seeking, our Spiritual Origins
KNGDV
Linguistic Support, Corroboration of kngdv
.
1.  Aramaic.
.
Eve's role as an equal, autonomous resource for support, rescue, help with comparable strength and power  is in the Aramaic.  There, the root of ngd is to pull, to draw, stretch, drive.  There he is, stuck, and somebody in front goes in to help.  To pull, to draw.  See Vetting Roots, Aramaic, kngdv.
.
2.  Mandean.
.
Similarly, see the words in Mandean. See Vetting Roots, Mandean, kngdv.  Hebrew was not the earliest language for scripture.  Look at Syriac, and Iraqi Mandeans.  There are numerologists and mystics, all addressing the meaning of kndgv.  Many are out of our tradition.  Others are rather fun:  Eve was taken from the rib area, not the foot, just so she would not be trod underfoot.  She is breath.  Wonderful.  Good, Mandeans.  Good.
.
3.  Essenes.
.
These identified with Adam and Eve, not with later accretions such as prophets and kings and even Jesus, as the tribes and cultures developed.  See http://martinlutherstove.blogspot.com/2008/11/kngdv-k-ngd-u-k-ngd-v-eves.html/ at the footnote.
.
There is a longer discussion there, but it appears that the group identified with the geneology of Adam and Eve, and not through Jesus.  But they do appear to affirm (the later ones) John the Baptist and Mohammed. 
.
The variety of religious belief is astounding, given the funneling into the Roman that took place in the West. Who is to say, except to note who had the administrative and military background to force. Is that so?
.
Mandeans are gender-equal, it appears, women are free to go about, and they are vegetarians.  Need to learn more.
.
4.  Cathars.
.
In Medieval times, look at the Cathars for these kinds of ideas -- including equality of women - and they were killed for them.  See Bogomilia:  Cathars, Albigensians: Vet the So-Called Heresies
.
Revisit what was persecuted, and why. What if those old militants, pushing a single institution at the expense of quashing all other ideas, were wrong. Look back.  What was so bad about the systems that were trashed.  Was it only that it deprived the entrenched patriarchy of its justification in theological fantasy, and not just the force that patriarchy represents?

5.  Cain and Abel

Listen to Cain, who tilled the ground, cared for it as the Deity apparently had wanted in the beginning.  Gen.3:23 in transliteration. Disregarded by that same Deity, without explanation, without warning.  The deity does not appreciate me, is is easy to imagine Cain saying to himself.  I have done all this, and now am turned away?  This deity is arbitrary, unfair, capricious and I will take my own vengeance.  So, there went Abel, the herdsman, down and out; in the name of another's force.
