Re: Mary Magdalene
- Hi JoAnn,
Fiction books seem to be my least favorite books, however, with all
the Magdalelen 'fact' books, reporting her sexual dalliances with
Jesus the Christ and her being black and this being the 'real' reason
Christian Jews looked down upon the Magdalene, I think I am open to
reading some 'acknowledged' fiction of her from an inspirational
Have you ever read Mysts of Avalon? I have it on my shelf and so many
people have said you must read this book. So, I will get this book
you mention below as well as maybe begin reading the Mysts of Avalon.
All my best,

I am inspired to write a 'scholarly' :) piece on this today. In this
I would like to say Magdalene was also initiated by Christ. There is
absolutely no way around it. I am not sure if your comment means that
only Lazarus was initiated by Christ, does it?
Not only this but this week the headline for the Christmas Time
Magazine was Magdalene. Kind of interesting beings it usually is the
Mother Mary and the Babe. My friend saw the cover on my desk and
mentioned 'boy that looks like Mona Lisa'. And you know what, he is
right. So, got to thinking which led me to Da Vincis Mona Lisa. Now
reading the novel, The Da Vinci Codes something interesting it
brought out by known art scholars and that is that the picture is
actually considered a male/female painting. Magdalene: male/female.
Now, obviously this does not mean that I am right regarding Magdalene
however these little points will keep coming up till we get it about
this Feminine Mystery that was hidden by the Church. Peter was the
outer church and Magdalene represents the inner church.
I am going to pull this together in a little paper. I do not believe
it goes against anything Dr. STeiner said. I do believe that as
students we are not to stop at his death with the things he shared
with us. We are to go further or we are stuck in the mud. He hinted
that the Feminine Mysteries are going to be unveiled and they are. He
did not say who represented them although he did hint at it. If we
read his works between the lines, like we do the Bible, we will come
to this truth.
Its funny because a thought just came to me about John/Lazarus
writing the Fourth Gospel. Usually Mother Mary is not considered an
ispirant yet she is considered to have lived with this John. Now
suddenly people are starting to say John was inspired by living with
the Holy Mother intimating that it is a book by both in a sense.
People are starting to feel this Magdalene/Daughter intuitive energy
because they are acknowledging her in a sense. It is so readily
available to one who seeks.
