Share, We should all keep a close eye on what Pope Francis is saying these days. Some reporters have stated that Pope Francis believes the Virgin Mary is equal to God and that Jesus has been demoted. If true, that would really shake all of the Christian Churches.

She was almost certainly not a prostitute, but a wealthy woman whose support helped early Christianity to survive. Mary Magdalene could have been Jesus' concubine or even his wife. The Bible doesn't say what her realtionship was with Jesus except that she was a devoted follower and supporter. The early Gnostic Gospels have no hesitation describing the relationship between Mary Magdalene and Jesus. The death of Jesus could have been a plot to deceive the authorities. Maybe it was a robber that was hung on the cross and maybe Jesus escaped with Mary to go live in France. Go figure.

Also, the involvement of Mary Magdalene as "co-messiah" would completely change the present Christian theology. As such, I believe the orthodoxy would completely reject the validity of the manuscript. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com mailto:FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <s3raphita@...> mailto:s3raphita@... wrote : Mary Magdalene was a "co-messiah", the wife of Jesus and the mother of his children, according to a translation of an ancient manuscript. http://tinyurl.com/mhb2j8b http://tinyurl.com/mhb2j8b
