Description

When a book is too esoteric or existential that only the author knows what the heck he or she is talking about--well forget it.

She mentions one of the teachings of Mary Magdalene and Jesus, and then she explains it in the context of her own life. It’s no exaggeration to say that Mary Magdalene Revealed feels like the book I’ve been waiting for since the first time I sat in a church and asked why, if God was a Father, there was no Mother to go with him? The book is structured into seven parts, or the seven powers that exist within us, 'an ingredients label for the ego', powers that at various times and for differing duration, can potentially hold us captive. The Gospel of Mary Magdalene presents a radical interpretation of Jesus' teachings as a path to inner spiritual knowledge. When the Christian church leaders decreed that the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John are to be canonized to form the New Testament, at the council of Nicaea in 325 A.Another distinctive feature of the gospel Mary is that God is not referred to as the Father, and this gospel does not say that Jesus is the son of God. Her thesis, as I understand it is largely that a lot of pertinent stuff was left out of the Bible as it stands, because all of it tends to undermine the patriarchy, because the early Christians were very equal, and that didn't work for a hierarchical church in the service of an Emperor. and have often stated this is some man’s interpretation only to be challenged and ostracized because ‘You don’t believe’ and ‘will go to hell’ and so on.

When I say, I ‘heard’ the answer, it’s not a voice as if on an intercom at Target, or on an airplane. It is mostly memoir, and for everything else I imagined I was a Wikipedia editor having an absolute field day with [citation needed]. She makes it safe for you to explore your own emotions while she journeys through the paradox of traveling long distances to find something that has always been inside of you. At one point I put the book down in frustration and turned to the almighty Google, where I learned much more interesting things like the fact that scholars can’t even agree on which Biblical Mary is the supposed author of this gospel. It certainly hasn’t ever added up, there has always been something missing, something that rendered the scales uneven, surely this man who turned the world upside down would not exclude women from his ministry?

Livro relevante por apresentar dados invisbilizados sobre a história e a formação do cristianismo moderno. However, I found through this pages so many "friends" that take part into her adventure, so many authors I felt close to. Yet, King argues, ‘We know that in the early centuries and throughout Christian history, women played prominent roles as apostles, deacons, preachers, and prophets.

So, in the end, I'm glad I read this book, but I think her overall message is lost in all the fluff. While I get that part of the message she's trying to share is an interconnectedness in our human experience, it gets a little old to read about the significance she finds in every place she goes and in colors and numbers and eggs and thread and people and childbirth and tattoos and aura readings and yoga and headlamps and skinny dipping and shapes and articles of clothing and. It was recommended by a friend whose perspective on life, love of all creatures, acceptance, curiosity, empathy, calm and action I greatly respect. She is a feminist theologian with a Master of Theological Studies from Harvard Divinity School and a Master of Divinity from Union Theological Seminary at Columbia University.

I am completely obsessed with Mary Magdalene Revealed - and being this moved by this book has come as quite a shock (as a Jewish woman with seemingly no interest in this topic but a deep appreciation for Meggan's writing) yet I am underlining and weeping like crazy! If you have even a fleeting interest in spirituality or feminism, or you’re ready to challenge the old ideas of religion and look at them - especially Christianity - from a perspective that feels like it includes you, then this is definitely a book to read. She states several times she is not a Christian, okay other views are good to have, but with that bias she then states we are all good. Whatever your take on the author’s interpretations, the book reflects fascinating thought and scholarship. The parts of the book that are about the history of Mary and the work done to suppress her story (and the stories of other important women in early Christianity) are the most interesting.

I get the sense that Watterson is preaching to the choir in this book- it reads very much as if the reader is already convinced. There was a story about Jesus that won out…that was created in the 4th century…guided by a unified version of Christianity. My heart melted a little when I read about her meeting with Rose, who I was sure (and right) it was the lovely Lyna Rose Jones, one of my guiding stars in the ways of Mary Magdalene. Fortunately, some rebel monks refused, and thanks to their disobedience we have several ancient manuscripts of the only gospel that was written in the name of a woman: The Gospel of Mary Magdalene.
