The story of Mary empowers us. To many, she is the captive, possessed, enslaved, caught in the midst of crime and tragedy, but at once redeemed, set free, and loved by God himself. She is hope and triumph. She represents the power of truth and love to change the life of the lowest and most powerless of us. She is you and me in search of God. The Gospel of Mary Magdalene serves to shake our concepts and assumptions of early Christianity. Did Jesus give Mary special and personal knowledge and teaching? Did he take Mary to be his wife? Could the couple have produced children? Gnostic theology leaves open the possibility.

Peter said to Mary, “Sister, we know that the Savior loved you more than all other women. Tell us the words of the Savior that you remember and know, but we have not heard and do not know.” Mary answered him and said, “I will tell you what He hid from you.”
