  • Our plan of approach is a simple one. CLICK for NEXT slide ...
  • AUTO ... Her name. Where her name appears in scripture. Are there any other passages in scripture that refer to her. The incidents in which Mary Magdalene was involved. Her character and example with its lessons for us. So, to her name. Mary Magdalene – name CLICK for NEXT slide ...
  • Mary is a familiar enough name to us all, I am sure. It comes from the Hebrew and includes the forms Miriam and Maria. The meaning of the name seems uncertain with scholars offering 6 or 7 different suggestions. I don’t see much profit in looking at them! CLICK for ... Magdalene simply means Mary came from the village of ... CLICK for ... Magdala on the western shores of the Sea of Galilee. It also took the names Dalmanutha and Magadam. It appears to have been a fairly prosperous settlement. CLICK for NEXT slide ... This, apparently, is how it looked in ... ...
  • This is how it looked in 1900 which seemed to carr something of the flavour of how it might have looked 2,000 years ago. In the foreground are some of the remains of the earlier settlement since excavated and looking ... CLICK for NEXT slide ...

  • But it has since disappears into the Sea of Galilee. An ancient fishing boat was dug out of the mud here and is now displayed in a local museum. It seems probable that she came from Magdala, a small village on the shore of the Sea of Galilee, where Jesus preached immediately after the feeding of the four thousand with seven loaves and a few small fishes (Matt. 15 : v. 39). In fact, some of the modern translations of the New Testament give "Mary of Magdala" instead of "Mary Magdalene". We know Jesus went there at least once ... Matthew 15:39 And he sent away the multitude, and took ship, and came into the coasts of Magdala. Not of great importance as Mary could have come to him any where in Galilee. Jesus was often there! In fact in Luke 7, immediatley before her healing of evil spirits is menioned in Luke 8 ... CLICK for NEXT slide ...
  • AUTO ... Journey is drawn as ... He started the chapter in Capernaum and then went to Nain, a journey of about 20 miles, where he raised the widows son, meaning he almost certainly passed through Magdala on the way. But, why draw attention to where Mary lived? CLICK for NEXT slide ...
  • Surely simply to identify her - to separate her from ... CLICK for ... the other Mary’s in New Testament. AUTO ... Mary, the mother of Jesus Mary Magdalene Mary the sister of Martha Mary the mother of James Mary the mother of James the less and Joses Mary the mother of John Mark. Mary, one of Paul's helpers (Romans 16: 6) Although Mary Magdalene is a very well known character, the information about her is fairly limited. CLICK for NEXT slide ...
  • She is mentioned by name 14 times – 2 of them as Mary, but the context shows these two were clearly her ...... CLICK for ... Matthew 27:56 & 61 and 28:1 - (3 times) AUTO ... Mark 15:40 & 47 and Mark 16:1 & 9 - (4 times) ... Luke 8:2 and Luke 24:10 - (twice) LAST ... John 19:25 and 20:1, (11), (16) & 18 - (5 times incl 2x Mary) But these ... CLICK for ... only cover three events or happenings :- CLICK for ... 1. Her healing and commitment to Christ CLICK for ... 2. Her presence at the Crucifixion CLICK for ... 3. Her visits to Christ’s tomb and meeting with him However, there are some who claim she appears anonymously, or under another name in other passages. We do not agree with this and therefore need to explain why. CLICK for NEXT slide ...
  • The occasions are recorded in :- CLICK for ... Lk. 7:36-50; John 12:1-11 and Mrk 14:1-9; & Matt 26:6-13 These I believe are three incidents involving in Luke 7 a woman “which was a sinner” in the house of a Pharisee, in John 12 it is the only named woman - Mary the sister of Martha and Lazarus in their own house – the first two, both anointings of the feet, and the third, recorded in Matthew and Mark, an anointing of Jesus’ head in the house of a healed Leper The first involves ... ... CLICK for ... SHOWS BUT DON’T READ ... Luke 7:37 And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee's house, brought an alabaster box of ointment, SAY ... “a woman in the city, which was a sinner” and a Pharisee called Simon. Apparently this woman came into the Pharisee’s house, or may be the central courtyard, uninvited, knelt at the feet of Jesus, washed his feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair. She kissed his feet and anointed them with ointment. Simon was shocked saying to himself, if Jesus “were a prophet, would have known who and what manner of woman this that toucheth him: for she is a sinner” and rejected her attentions. Instead, Jesus forgave her sins which were many, because her love was so great. She was sent away in peace, saved by her faith. To say this was Mary Magdalene makes unreasonable assumptions such as "out of whom went seven devils" refers to her sin of harlotry. As far as I can see in scripture the possession of devils always means illness or madness, never sin. John (10:20) records that people said of Jesus, "He hath a devil, and is mad; why hear ye him?“ Also, some claim that " Magdalene" does not necessarily mean of " Magdala“ but is a term for harlotry! I can find no support for this idea. CLICK for NEXT slide ... BUT SEE NO CHANGE ... Luke 7:36-50; John 12:1-11 and Matt 26:6-13; & Mark 14:1-9
  • Furthermore, if the happenings at the end of Luke 7 are reckoned to be Mary Magdalene’s conversion, the action of the woman who anointed the feet of Jesus with ointment does not read like the behaviour of a demoniac. Or, if, as those who claim that this woman was Mary Magdalene say, Jesus had previously cured her madness and caused her to love him so that this anointing was in gratitude for her cure, how very unlikely that Mary would either have returned to, or fallen into, a life of notorious unchastity. In my opinion these ideas are totally unreasonable and out of keeping with her character as subsequently revealed in scripture. Mary Magdalene was a sick woman, not a notorious sinner, and I think it would do her a great wrong to say otherwise. We feel too that had Luke just described an incident involving Mary Magdalene at the end of Luke 7, then his description of her in Luke 8:2 would have made some reference to her anointing of Jesus just previously. No! The opening of chapter 8 has the ring of introducing Mary Magdalene for the first time telling us that she was fairly wealthy, and already a follower of Jesus, travelling with him and assisting in ministering to his material needs. When we look at the second incident ... ... CLICK for NEXT slide ...
  • AUTO ... John 12 ... DON’T READ and the context shows this is the sister of Martha and Lazarus. To suggest Mary Magdalene is the sister of Martha and Lazarus involves contending that at least the Luke and John accounts are the same incident. This is based upn both being in the house of a Simon, but one was described as Simon the leper, and the other as Simon a Pharisee. This idea takes no account of the fact that Luke is clearly writing of happening early in Jesus’ ministry and John right at the end. Furthermore, that these two men should have the same name is not surprising. " Simon " (like " Mary " was a very common name at that time. Among the Twelve there were two " Simons " (Peter and Zelotes), so it is not surprising to meet with two Simons among the thousands of Jews Jesus made contact with. Simon the leper lived at Bethany; Simon the Pharisee almost certainly lived in Galilee, probably in Nain or Capernaum. Another reason for contending that Mary Magdalene was sister of Martha and Lazarus is that no mention is made of Mary, sister of Martha and Lazarus, at the crucifixion or around the tomb, and it is inconceivable that such a devoted friend of Jesus was not there. But what of Martha and Lazarus, they are not mentioned and does not mean they were not there! Then we come to ... ... CLICK for NEXT slide ...
  • AUTO ... 3. Jesus head anointed ... ... The Mark and Matthew accounts are clearly the same agreeing in every detail. They cannot be the same as item 2. Different houses – different time. This one involved anointing Jesus’ head and the other two his feet, Luke’s account was at the beginning of Jesus’ ministry, CLICK for ... John’s 6 days before the passover and this one 2 days before. There is more we could say about this, but time presses and we hope we’ve shown that these incidents do not involve Mary Magdalene. Therefore, in assessing her character we do not have to take them into account. John 12:1 Then Jesus six days before the passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus was which had been dead , whom he raised from the dead. 2 There they made him a supper; and Martha served: but Lazarus was one of them that sat at the table with him. 3 Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus , and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment. Mark 14:1-2 1 After two days was the feast of the passover , and of unleavened bread: and the chief priests and the scribes sought how they might take him by craft, and put him to death. ... 3 And being in Bethany in the house of Simon the leper , as he sat at meat, there came a woman having an alabaster box of ointment of spikenard very precious; and she brake the box, and poured it on his head. ... 9 Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached throughout the whole world, this also that she hath done shall be spoken of for a memorial of her . So lets look at what we do know about Mary Magdalene and draw what conclusions we can about her character and lessons we can learn from her example. CLICK for NEXT slide ...
  • Let’s look at Mary’s companions. CLICK for ... Matthew 27 tells us that CLICK for ... Mary Magdalene was at the cross with CLICK for ... Mary the mother of James and Joses and CLICK for ... the mother of Zebedee’s children CLICK for NEXT slide ...
  • CLICK for ... Mark 15:40 says of the same occasion that Mary Magdalene was with CLICK for ... Mary the mother of James and Joses and CLICK for ... And Salome. Giving a strong indication that Salome was the mother of Zebedee’s children CLICK for NEXT slide ...
  • John speaks of the same occasion adding some more interesting facts. CLICK for ... John 19:25 – Here Mary Magdalene was accompanied by ... CLICK for ... The Mother of Jesus. Now Matthew tells us ... CLICK for ... Matt 13:55 ... James and Joses were brothers of Jesus. So we can add these two CLICK for ... to the information we have already got. That leaves us with ... CLICK for ... The sister of Mary, the mother of Jesus CLICK for ... And another Mary - Mary, the mother of Cleopas as a new comer. We believe there is a strong indication that Salome. the wife of Zebedee was Mary’s sister. I’d be interested to know what you think. Especially when we add the information about the women who visited the tomb. CLICK for NEXT slide ...
  • So at the ross 4 women are named as present. Let’s move on to the tomb ... CLICK for ... Matthew 28:1 tells us again that CLICK for ... Mary Magdalene was there. Together with .. CLICK for ... The other Mary CLICK for NEXT slide ...
  • CLICK for ... Mark 16:1 says that with Mary Magdalene CLICK for ... Mary the mother of James CLICK for ... And Salome. Surely confiming that the other Mary is Jesus’ mother. and Salome is the mother of Zebedee’s children CLICK for NEXT slide ...
  • Then Luke 24 tells us that CLICK for ... Mary Magdalene was with CLICK for ... Mary the mother of James Does not name Salome, but adds ... CLICK for ... Joanna who we know to be a friend of Mary Magdalene from CLICK for ... AND READ HERE ... Luke 8:2-3 2 And certain women, which had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities, Mary called Magdalene, out of whom went seven devils, 3 And Joanna the wife of Chuza Herod's steward, and Susanna, and many others, which ministered unto him of their substance CLICK for ... So she was the wife of Chuza Herod’s steward. CLICK for ... And Luke adds “other women” thus allowing that Salome was there. Finslly ... CLICK for NEXT slide ... .
  • John 20:1 only speaks of Mary Magdalene oing to the tomb. But when she see the the stone that covered the entrance to the tomb rolled away and ... CLICK for ... John 20:2 2 Then she runneth, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulchre, Notice she says “and we know not where they have laid him.” CLICK for ... So John allows that others may have been there. So looking at the two occasions we seem to have the clear indication CLICK for ... that Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of Jesus and Salome were close companions. The deduction that these three women in particular were friends that stuck together at the cross and at the tomb is supported by Luke ... CLICK for NEXT slide ...
  • Luke 8:2-3 2 And certain women, which had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities, Mary called Magdalene, out of whom went seven devils, 3 And Joanna the wife of Chuza Herod's steward, and Susanna, and many others, which ministered unto him of their substance. Any comments. So lets look at Mary Magdalene herself.
