her-roses-never-fall  asked:

What do you think of Magdalene being Jesus' wife?

To me, Mary Magdalene is the beloved disciple, his equal koinonos (”companion”). I believe that Jesus and Magdalene shared an extremely intimate relationship, but I am on the line whether it is romantic or not. 

I don’t believe that they had a Jewish wedding ceremony or they had any biological children. Defining Magdalene only as a child-bearing wife is just as limiting to her personhood as the “penitent slut” in my eyes. This idea really took hold with The Di Vinci Code, and I feel like it oversimplifies their spiritual relationship. Their love for one another is so much more than that.
