Mary Magdalene is considered by all to be the first Apostle -- she brought the good news ("gospel") of the resurrection to the other disciples. The Catholic Church calls her the Apostle to the Apostles.The Gnostic Gospels hold that Mary was closer to Jesus than anyone else, that he told her things he told no one else. So once Jesus had ascended, Mary offered the closest access to the Word available to the other disciples through another person.
Hi Valerie. Thank you for your input. The blog post is actually a clickable link shared for the examiner.com by a friend who does stories of a Gnostic flavour for his articles.I have much reverence for her myself. This topic and others are discussed at another site I run called spiralinward.com . Religious history and myth are truly fascinating!In Love & Light
Thank you for taking the time to comment. It's always fascinating to know that people read what I write.
