Shocker: Mary Magdalene not a prostitute!


There is lots out there abour the Da Vinci Code right now. Peter Chattaway has this to say at FilmChat:

FWIW, my favorite line on this is this quote from E.P. Sanders’ The Historical Figure of Jesus (pages 74-75): “Mary Magdalene has appealed enormously to people who have imagined all sorts of romantic things about her: she had been a prostitute, she was beautiful, she was in love with Jesus, she fled to France carrying his child. For all we know, on the basis of our sources, she was eighty-six, childless, and keen to mother unkempt young men.”

Amen, Amen! 🙂
