Just who is Mary Magdalene of the New Testament scripture? She is Yeshua/Jesus' wife. The head of the Christian expunged the character of Mary Magdalene to portray Yeshua/Jesus as deity from heaven, sterile and had no use for women. Real history tells us a different story. See a litany of reference (1) Mark 16: 9, Mark 15: 40, Luke 8:2, St John 20:18, Mark 15: 47 Matthew 27: 56 Luke 7:36-50... Is there a special reason Mary Magdalere gets featured so often in the gospel.
