The Meaning of Mary Magdalene: Discovering the Woman at the Heart of Christianity Facilitated by Allen Watson, L.U.T.
Wednesdays, February 26 - April 2, 2014, 10am - Noon or 7pm - 9pm
Mary Magdalene is one of the most influential symbols in the history of Christianity. In this class, we will take a fresh look at what the Bible says about her (probably not what you think!), what role she plays in the Gospel of Philip, the Gospel of Thomas, the Pistis Sophia, and especially in the only gospel attributed to a woman, the Gospel of Mary Magdalene. We will study her gospel in some detail.
What we find in these documents is a radical view of Mary Magdalene as Jesus’s most important disciple, the one he considered to understand his teaching best. That teaching was characterized by a nondualistic approach to the world and by a deep understanding of the value of the feminine. We will discover how an understanding of Mary Magdalene can revitalize contemporary Christianity and empower Unity, how we can, through her, find our way to Jesus’s original teachings and apply them to our modern lives.
DATES: Wednesdays, 10 AM to noon or 7 to 9 PM, starting February 26 through April 2, 2014.
Suggested love offering: $15 per session or $75 total if paid in advance. More Info
