Pearsons article From Saint to Sinner as it originally appeared in Bible Review, Spring 2. The article was first republished in Bible History Daily in 2. Ed. Was Mary Magdalene a prostitute Was Mary Magdalene wife of Jesus Her being a repentant whore was not part of the biblical text.

When novelists and screenwriters try to insert something salacious into the life of Jesus, they focus on one woman Mary from Magdala. Was Mary Magdalene a prostitute Was Mary Magdalene the wife of Jesus Birger A. Pearson addresses these popular notions in the article From Saint to Sinner below. As Pearson notes, theres no substantial evidence to either of these theories. As for her being named in the New Testament, none of the Gospels hints of her as being Mary Magdalene, wife of Jesus. Three Gospels name her only as a witness of his crucifixion andor burial. All four Gospels place her at the scene of Jesus resurrection though Luke does not list her as a witness. Only in the Gospel according to Luke is there even the slightest implication that she might have had a past life that could raise eyebrows and the question Was Mary Magdalene a prostitute Luke 8 names her among other female followers and financial supporters and says that she had been released from the power of seven demons. Theologians in later centuries consciously tried to downplay her role as an influential follower of Jesus. She became identified with the sinful woman in Luke 7 whom Jesus forgives as she anoints his feet, as well as the woman taken in adultery whom Jesus saved from stoning. In the sixth century Pope Gregory preached of her being a model penitent. Only the Western church has said that Mary Magdalene was a prostitute. The Eastern church has always honored her as an apostle, noting her as the apostle to the apostles, based on the account of the Gospel of John which has Jesus calling her by name and telling her to give the news of his resurrection to the other disciples. As Birger A. Pearson sets forth in From Saint to Sinner below, a noncanonical Gospel of Mary enhances her role to a greater proportion. Her ongoing role in the early church is subject to speculation, but she is indeed getting more respect in theological circles, not for being Mary Magdalene wife of Jesus nor for being Mary Magdalene a prostitute but for being a faithful follower of her Rabboniher teacher. The Galilee is one of the most evocative locales in the New Testamentthe area where Jesus was raised and where many of the Apostles came from. Our free e. Book, The Galilee Jesus Knew, focuses on several aspects of Galilee how Jewish the area was in Jesus time, the ports and the fishing industry that were so central to the region, and several sites where Jesus likely stayed and preached. From Saint to Sinnerby Birger A. Pearson Dan Brown, William Phipps, Martin Scorsesewhen looking for a lover or wife for Jesus, they all chose Mary Magdalene. Its not surprising. Mary Magdalene has long been recognized as one of the New Testaments more alluring women. Most people think of her as a prostitute who repented after encountering Jesus. In contemporary British artist Chris Gollons painting of The Pre penitent Magdalene at right, Mary appears as a defiant femme fatal adorned with jewelry and make up. Yet, the New Testament says no such thing. Gamecube Pokemon Xd Gale Darkness Rom'>Gamecube Pokemon Xd Gale Darkness Rom. Rather, in three of the four canonical Gospels, Mary Magdalene is mentioned by name only in connection with the death and resurrection of Jesus. She is a witness to his crucifixion Matthew 2. Mark 1. 5 4. 04. John 1. Matthew 2. Mark 1. She is one of the first the first, according to John to arrive at the empty tomb Matthew 2. Mark 1. 6 18 Luke 2. John 2. 0 11. 0. And she is one of the first again, the first, according to John to witness the risen Christ Matthew 2. John 2. 0 1. 41. Only the Gospel of Luke names Mary Magdalene in connection with Jesus daily life and public ministry. There, Mary is listed as someone who followed Jesus as he went from village to village, bringing the good news of the kingdom of God. And the twelve were with him, and also some women who had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities Mary, called Magdalene, from whom seven demons had gone out, and Joanna, the wife of Chuza, Herods steward, and Susanna, and many others, who provided for them out of their means Luke 8 13. To learn more about Biblical women with slighted traditions, take a look at the Bible History Daily feature Scandalous Women in the Bible, which includes articles on Jezebel and Lilith. The epithet Magdalene, used in all the Gospels, indicates that Mary came from the mercantile town of Migdal Taricheae on the western shore of the Sea of Galilee. She must have been a woman of some means, if Lukes account can be trusted, for she helped provide Jesus and the twelve with material support. She had also experienced Jesus healing power, presumably involving an exorcism of some sort. It should be noted, though, that the author of the Gospel of Luke has a tendency to diminish Mary Magdalenes role, in comparison with her treatment in the other three canonical Gospels. For example, Luke is alone among the canonical Gospels in claiming that the risen Lord appeared exclusively to Peter Luke 2. Corinthians 1. 5 5. No appearance to Mary is recorded in Luke. Accordingly, his reference to seven demons may be tendentious. So how did Mary become a repentant whore in Christian legend Critical scholarship has provided the answer to this question It happened as a conscious attempt on the part of later interpreters of the Gospels to diminish her. They did this by identifying her with other women mentioned in the Gospels, most notably the unnamed sinful woman who anoints Jesus feet with ointment and whose sins he forgives Luke 7 3. John 7 5. 38 1. This conflation of texts was given sanction in the sixth century by Pope Gregory the Great 5. Mary up as a model of penitence. Pope Gregory positively identified the unnamed anointer and adulteress as Mary, and suggested that the ointment used on Jesus feet was once used to scent Marys body. The seven demons Jesus cast out of Mary were, according to Gregory, the seven cardinal sins, which include lust. But, wrote Gregory, when Mary threw herself at Jesus feet, she turned the mass of her crimes to virtues, in order to serve God entirely in penance. Thus was invented the original hooker with a heart of gold. Interestingly, the legend of Mary the penitent whore is found only in the Western church in the Eastern church she is honored for what she was, a witness to the resurrection. Another Gregory, Gregory of Antioch also sixth century, in one of his homilies, has Jesus say to the women at the tomb Proclaim to my disciples the mysteries which you have seen. Become the first teacher of the teachers. Peter, who has denied me, must learn that I can also choose women as apostles. Marys historical role as an apostle is clearly tied to her experience of an appearance of the risen Christ. As noted above, in the Gospel of John, Mary Magdalene goes alone to the tomb, where she is the first to see the risen Jesus. He tells her to tell his brethren that he is ascending to God the Father. She then goes to the disciples and tells them what she has seen and heard John 2.
