Easter Commentary: Did Mary Magdalene bankroll Jesus?

by Coleen Singer at Sssh.com Erotica For Women

In a somewhat radical departure from our usual sex, culture and media commentary, today we head back in time to witness a relationship that ALWAYS stirs up lots of controversy.

You just have to hand it to mainstream media on the internet to wring the last drop out of any story that might create a buzz, and the past two days I’ve seen a flood of stories covering the amazing discovery that Mary Magdalene and other women were the financial supporters of Jesus of Nazarene in his ministry.

Jesus Mary Magdalene Married

CNN, as part of it’s Finding Jesus: Fact. Faith. Forgery series, says:

Mary Magdalene, identified as — among other things — a financial supporter of Jesus. Mary likely came from the prosperous town of Magdala, on the Sea of Galilee. As home to a thriving fishing industry, as well as dye and textile works, Mary could well have come from an affluent family — or have been a successful business woman herself.

Mary Magdalene was free to travel the country with Jesus and his disciples, so was unlikely to have a husband and children waiting for her at home, and in “Finding Jesus” we examine the Gnostic gospel of Mary Magdalene and explore the argument that Jesus was, in fact, her husband. She may have simply been an independent woman with her own resources who found a compelling message, and messenger.

Not only was Mary Magdalene one of Jesus’ most devoted followers, who stuck with him all the way from Galilee to Jerusalem, from the ministry to the cross and the tomb, but also she provided for him from her own means, said Mark Goodacre, a professor of New Testament and Christian Origins at Duke University.

When the Gospels speak of her “ministering” to Jesus, they are explaining that she was one of the key figures in Jesus’ everyday mission, Goodacre continues. Along with other women like Joanna and Susanna, she was one of those who made his mission viable.

The controversial debate of Mary’s “other role” as actually being Jesus’ wife who bore his children and then moved to the south of France has been raging for years!  In fact, The Da Vinci Code, Dan Brown’s 2003 best-selling thriller, was hinged on that very premise: a secret bloodline had sprung from the union between Jesus and Mary. But now the authors of a new book, The Lost Gospel, claim to have unearthed evidence of a manuscript which tells the story of Jesus’s two sons and his marriage to Mary, one of his closest followers, who was at his crucifixion, burial and the discovery of his empty tomb.

But Wait! This book gets even better!

  • ‘The Lost Gospel’ claims Mary Magdalene was the original Virgin Mary (talk about marrying a much older woman who is your mom?!)
  • They claim there was an assassination attempt on Mary’s two children (which would explain moving the family to the south of France).

It’s actually pretty refreshing to have some hint of a sex-scandal in the New Testament as it’s pretty sanitized compared to that tome of rape, incest and bestiality (and a lot of dietary rules and restrictions) called “The Old Testament!

[We now return to our regularly scheduled sex in society and media programming…..]
