Lost for more than fifteen hundred years the Gospel of Mary is the only existing early Christian gospel written in the name of a woman Unlike the controversial Jesus Wife gospel fragment the Gospel of Mary does not claim Mary was married to Jesus But it does show her to be an important disciple to whom Jesus male disciples turn for advice and wisdom Indeed the apostle Peter specifically asks Mary to interpret the words of Jesus Karen L King tells the story of the recovery of this remarkable gospel and offers a new translation This brief narrative presents a radical interpretation of Jesus teachings as a path to inner spiritual knowledge It rejects his suffering and death as a path to eternal life and exposes the view that Mary Magdalene was a prostitute for what it is a piece of theological fiction The Gospel of Mary of Magdala offers a fascinating glimpse into the conflicts and controversies that shaped earliest Christianity
