No woman in the history of Christianity has captured the imagination more than Mary Magdalene since the publication of Dan Brown’s novel ‘The da Vinci Code’ brought her back into consciousness.
A repentant sinner and follower of Jesus were the roles ascribed to her in The New Testament, but since the discovery of the Gnostic Gospels which became known as the Nag Hammadi Library, she comes over rather differently.
Companion of Jesus, mother, teacher, healer and priestess are just some of the insights we can glean from the Gnostic texts.
The Gospel of Mary and The Gospel of Thomas tell us Mary Magdalene was a trusted, independent, insightful, and courageous Apostle to the Apostles.
She may well have been a conduit for the secret teachings of Jesus – in ‘The Gospel of the Saviour’ Jesus describes her as “The Woman Who Knows the All”.
Written out of history for almost 2,000 years, she is here in our midst to help us transition into the Age of Aquarius where the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine will be in balance and enable us to live in a better world.
