5.0 out of 5 stars Complete insight into self relationship with God, 1 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Gospel of Mary of Magdala: Jesus and the First Woman Apostle (Paperback)
This is a complete insight into the way Christianity has to be understood. Like many organised religions, Christianity too has undergone changes in interpretations to match emerging challenges e.g. what does Christianity has to say about abortion, doner eggs, gender etc. However this is how the early non organised Christian views were expressed. That is why there are variations of both words and interpretations. What Gospel of Mary reveals is that not only was she closest disciple to the Lord (you can have relationships without sex), she was also very conceptual in her grasp of Jesus teaching. Rather than externalizing religion in her Gospel Christianity becomes internal to self. We are created in the image of God not in physical sense but in the soul. Our ultimate union therefore is at the soul level. As a women in that society and her deep level of understanding no wonder she had caused jealousies and resentment hence suppression of her preaching. This is a must for everyone. I highly recommend it. Make sure you do not do speed reading but spend time thinking about what she has said.
