Mary Magdalene’s Legacy

Julie de Vere Hunt

Mary Magdalene was written out of history after the crucifixion. Now her story is being told, a story of what happened to her and what important work she did in those lost years: a story of murder, betrayal, love, faith and courage that rewrites biblical history. An Arab peasant called Muhammad Ali accidentally discovered ancient texts buried in a sealed jar in the mountains in Upper Egypt in 1945. He excitedly smashed the jar expecting to find gold, only to discover inside 13 worthless papyrus books bound in leather. These became known as the Nag Hammadi library, a collection of early Christian and Gnostic texts, written in Greek and dating back to the 1st century AD. Dismissed as heresy by the Orthodox Church, in many of these gnostic texts, Mary Magdalene is portrayed as an enlightened spiritual leader privy to the secret teachings of Jesus. In The Gospel of the Saviour, Jesus calls Mary The Woman Who Knows the All. Set in 1st century Judea, Egypt and France, Mary Magdalene’s Legacy follows her life after the crucifixion, carrying on the bloodline of Jesus and transmitting the original teachings of Jesus.
