i have thought of a couple more reasons why i appreciate the story of mary magdalene in the bible. it's more to show me how real she was, in the sense that she was just like you and i.
-she reminds me of how similar we are as she battled satan/demons. luke 8:1-3
-she was at the cross as Christ was crucified. matthew 27:56
-she was then at the tomb of Jesus on Easter morning. matthew 27:57-61
so after thinking about mary magdalene's life and looking at her example, do our sins determine who we are or can a new word define each of us?
