Mary Magdalene and Jesus
Mary Magdalene is someone I look forward to meeting in heaven. I want to know her for who she really is, and not what others have theorized about her. Down through history, people have concocted conspiracies, plots, and wild claims about her relationship with Jesus and the nature of her occupation. Most of these notions have no support in the Bible or history books. So what is it about Mary Magdalene that makes her so vulnerable to speculation?

We do know from the Gospels that Mary Magdalene was a loyal follower of Jesus. After being set free from seven demons, Mary experienced spiritual freedom that radically changed her life. In fact, freedom is a characteristic that best describes how she lived out her faith in the Scriptures. Jesus honored Mary Magdalene by revealing himself to her first after the resurrection.
