Magdalene (Saint Mary-): sinner converted by Jesus Christ”

                                                                                 Little Larousse, 1966


Interview by Nicolas Koberich, Doctor of Philosophy and Writer




-          Thierry Murcia, you are an historian, a specialist in ancient Judaism and early Christianity and associate member of the CPAF, a research unit dependent on both the University of Provence and the CNRS (National Scientific Research Centre). You have just finished writing a book on Mary Magdalene and you made an utterly amazing discovery?...

-          Yes. In fact, this discovery dates to the mid-nineties, but at the beginning it was only a strong presumption.

-          But, first, what do we know about Mary Magdalene?

-          Not much. Most of our information depends directly on the Gospels: Mary Magdalene is mentioned among the women whom Jesus had cured and who had attached themselves to him. With a few others, she financially supported the small group of disciples.

-          And she is also among the witnesses of the Crucifixion ...

-          Absolutely. According to John, at Calvary, she is present at the very foot of the Cross. According to the Synoptics (the three other evangelists: Matthew, Mark, and Luke) she observes the scene but at some distance. She then attends the burial, and, on the Sabbath day, she is the first to go to the tomb of Jesus. According to John, Mary Magdalene is even the one who receive the first manifestation of the Risen One. And she is also the one who announces the good news to the disciples.
