Part 6, Mary Magdalene

Today we will read passages about Mary Magdalene. Through the years, myths and legends have sprung up around her. We may never know the truth about those. But what we do know is that we should emulate her courageous devotion to her Lord who had died as a criminal would die, as well as her eagerness to share the astounding news of His resurrection. All passages are from the Amplified Bible.

Mark 15:40-41 Now some women were there also, looking on from a distance, among whom were Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the younger and of Joses, and Salome, Who, when [Jesus] was in Galilee, were in the habit of accompanying and ministering to Him. And [there were] also many other [women] who had come up with Him to Jerusalem.

Mark 15:47 And Mary Magdalene and Mary [the mother] of Joses were [attentively] observing where He was laid.

Mark 16:9-11 Now Jesus, having risen [from death] early on the first day of the week, appeared first to Mary Magdalene, from whom He had driven out seven demons. She went and reported it to those who had been with Him, as they grieved and wept. And when they heard that He was alive and that she had seen Him, they did not believe it.
