The Gospel of Mary Magdalene
What if Jesus was married and had children? This idea dates back to the beginning of Christianity and is rooted in the fact that now Jewish leader would have been accepted without being married, but this is only the start.
Although the work is popularly known as the Gospel of Mary, it is not technically classed as a gospel by scholastic consensus because “the term ‘gospel’ is used as a label for any written text that is primarily focused on recounting the teachings and/or activities of Jesus during his adult life”.
Most scholars agree that the original gospel was written in Greek sometime during the 2nd century. However, Hollis Professor of Divinity Karen King at Harvard Divinity School suggests that it was written during the time of Christ. Scholars do not always agree which of the New Testament people named Mary is the central character of the Gospel of Mary.
“Her gospel says that we are not sinful; we are not to feel ashamed or unworthy for being human.“
I’m not here to push an opinion as to whether this transcends mere entertainment, but I can tell you the ideas would shack my faith none at all.
