hidden revelation Gospel of Mary

chapter 5

5) Peter said to Mary, Sister we know that the Savior loved you more than the rest of woman.
6) Tell us the words of the Savior which you remember which you know, but we do not, nor have we heard them.
7) Mary answered and said, What is hidden from you I will proclaim to you.

It seems from the words of Peter that Mary played a special role even before the resurrection and Peter now asks Mary for a hidden revelation

5  Peter said to Mary, "Sister, we know that the Savior loved you more than all other women. 

the statement that the Messiah loved Mary more than than the rest of woman seems to link it to the saying in the Gospel of Philip that he loved her more than all other disciple

The Gospel of Philip Wisdom and Mary of Magdala

Wisdom, who is called barren, is the mother of the angels.
The companion of the [savior] is Mary of Magdala. The [savior loved] her more than [all] the disciples, [and he] kissed her often on her [mouth].
The other [disciples] [64]…said to him, “Why do you love her more than all of us?”
The savior answered and said to them, “Why do I not love you like her? If a blind person and one who can see are both in darkness, they are the same. When the light comes, one who can see will see the light, and the blind person will stay in darkness.”

6 Tell us the words of the Savior that you remember, the things which you know that we don't because we haven't heard them."
7  Mary responded, "I will teach you about what is hidden from you." And she began to speak these words to them.

Mary now declares her willingness to impart this special teaching too
