There's something about Mary Magdalene( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Mary Magdalene has been a Christian icon for almost 2,000 years, but her role in Christianity is getting a dramatic reassessment. Was Mary a prostitute, Jesus's wife? The new image of Mary is coming into focus among scholars, a picture drawn from the heretical gospels found buried in Egyptian sand in the last century, and controversial new interpretations of New Testament scripture. Is Mary Magdalene the co-founder of Christianity and the Church, the mysterious so-called "beloved disciple" in the Gospel of John? Is there evidence of a rivalry between Mary Magdalene and St. Peter in the early church? For growing numbers of women in the Church today, she is a beacon for the future."--Website
