The Gospel of Mary of Magdala Jesus and the First Woman Apostle

by Karen L. King

The Gospel of Mary of Magdala Jesus and the First Woman Apostle Synopsis

Lost for more than fifteen hundred years, the Gospel of Mary is the only existing early Christian gospel written in the name of a woman. Unlike the controversial Jesus' Wife fragment, the Gospel of Mary does not claim Jesus was married, but it does depict Mary as a disciple. What's more, she is a leader among the disciples-one to whom Jesus' male disciples turned for wisdom and advice. The apostle Peter even specifically asks Mary to interpret the words of Jesus.
