Intro to World Religions

Is there anyone here who can explain to me what the Gospel of Thomas and the Gospel of Mary are about?
This is part of my first writing assignment in this class and I can't start on it until I understand these two writings. I've read both, but I'm so confused about what's going on.

Please let me know if anyone can help!

    Thank you! I read both of the links you posted. The two pieces are still really difficult to understand, but since I have to pick one of the two, I think I'll write about the Gospel of Mary..
    The first part says to write a summary of the gospel as I understand it , and include quotes...

    Well, according to me, It starts off with Jesus talking with some of his followers and telling them about sins. He continues to tell his followers about the sin of adultery. After speaking for a while Jesus gets up and leaves, and the people are left confused (..?) Then comes Mary and they ask her about the words of the Savior. The rest of the story goes on with Mary explaining her talks with Jesus to the people. (Some of the pages are missing in the middle). Near the end two of the followers question Mary about whether these were truly the words of the Savior or not. Peter continues to ask, "Has the Savior spoken secretly to a woman and not openly so that we would all hear?" This shows their concern as to why the Savior would share all this with a woman and not his male followers. In the end Levi comes up and tells them that they shouldn't have doubts about the Savior, rather they should go out and convey his message.


    how is this?..
