The Real Mary Magdalene
Peace!
They say “truth is stranger than fiction.” Here at American Catholic Radio (ACR) we’d like to prove that “truth is better than fiction.” As we continue our series looking beyond the phenomenon of The Da Vinci Code—both book and movie—to the truth about Jesus, we focus on the character of Mary Magdalene. Her fictional portrait in the book and movie distorts who she really was. ACR talks with theologian Dr. Elizabeth Johnson, who helps set the record straight on this important Gospel figure. The real Mary Magdalene inspires us with her witness to Christ’s resurrection. Count on American Catholic Radio to offer your listeners solid Catholic information in an easy-to-understand format!
