Will the Real Mary Magdalene Please Stand Up
Dan Brownas The DaVinci Code paints quite a different picture of Mary Magdalene than the biblical accounts. For centuries biblical scholars have debated who Mary Magdalene was. Could Mary of Bethany, the adulteress who was thrown at Jesusa feet, the woman who washed Jesusa feet with her tears, and Mary Magdalene be one and the same person? Will the Real Mary Magdalene Please Stand Up makes no claims for accuracy, except as Mary Magdalene is referred to in the Gospel records. This book gleans background material from William Barclayas Daily Study Bible Series to give an excellent understanding of the culture in biblical times. This delightful story follows Maryas life from a rebellious child, to prostitution, to her encounter with Jesus and her transformation into a devoted follower of her Lord.
