A-Z: General definitions: Mary Magdalene


According to the Gospels Mary was delivered by Christ from 'seven devils' (Luke 8:2), stood by the Cross (Mark 15:40), discovered the empty tomb, and was the first to encounter the Risen Christ (Mark 16:1-19, John 20:11-18). Tradition also identified her with the 'sinner' who anointed Christ's feet (Luke 7:37-50) and with Mary of Bethany.
