Mary Magdalene - not who you may think

Take the quiz to see how much you know about Mary Magdalene:

She was a prostitute - true or false

She was the adulteress who was thrown at Jesus' feet, who the Pharisees wanted to stone - true or false

She was the woman with the flask of perfume who wept at Jesus feet - true or false

She had an illicit affair with Jesus and secretly married him - true or false

The real answer to all of the above - FALSE!

Mary from the small town of Magdala, was a woman who had been cleansed of seven demons, and totally devoted to Jesus and His teachings.  She served, she listened, she learned and she was steadfast in her faithfulness even when the disciples themselves didn't believe her.  She was given a unique honor by Jesus Himself.  Listen to last Saturday's audio recording from our weekly Women's Breakfast to learn more about this amazing woman of faith.

WOW! This is what i have to say to this... It really help me special when you say we listen to something and we say "yes this is for me" and then even before we leave church we forget. The pastor in the church tells us that we have to tie those demons that makes us forget the word of God. Question 2 was specialy for me and theres more to that but like you said in this meeting... praying on it and if i wasn't i want to be.
