The Magdalene Taught Them

In honor of today’s Easter celebration, I’m sharing an excerpt from the Gospel of Mary (Magdalene). In Mary’s gospel we see the full extent of how she counselled and taught the other disciples. She was their teacher after Jesus’ death.

  1. “Impose no law
  2. other than that which I have witnessed.
  3. Do not add more laws to those given in the Torah,
  4. lest you become bound by them.”
  5. Having said all this, he (Jesus) departed.
  6. The disciples were in sorrow,
  7. shedding many tears, and saying:
  8. “How are we to go among the unbelievers
  9. and announce the gospel of the Kingdom of the Son of Man?
  10. They did not spare his life,
  11. so why should they spare ours?”
  12. Then Mary arose,
  13. embraced them all, and began to speak to her brothers:
  14. “Do not remain in sorrow and doubt,
  15. for his Grace will guide you and comfort you.
  16. Instead, let us praise his greatness,
  17. for he has prepared us for this.
  18. He is calling upon us to become fully human (Anthropos).”
  19. Thus Mary turned their hearts toward the Good,
  20. and they began to discuss the meaning of the Teacher’s words.
