The Dynastic Wedlock of Jesus and Mary Magdalene
Ritual of the Sacred Marriage of a Dynastic Heir
of dynastic wedlock were explicitly defined parameters, which
dictated celibate lifestyles, except for the procreation of
children at regular intervals. To perfume the nuptial anointing
rite was the express privilege of a messianic bride and performed
solely at the fist and second marriage ceremonies. Only as wife
of Jesus and a priestess in her own right could Mary Magdalene
have anointed both his feet and his head with the sacred ointment.
A September first anointing following the June betrothal feast
at Cana, Mary Magdalene conceived in December AD 32, and would
therefore have given birth to the first of her three children,
a daughter Tamar, in the Atonement month of September AD 33
outset of Jesus' mission, Mary Magdalene is seen as a constant
in his life. She sponsored him, traveled with him, anointed,
him, confided in him, and was companion to his mother and sisters.
She was there at the foot of the cross; she went to attend Jesus
with spices at the tomb, and was the first to speak with him
in the garden. She is documented as Jesus' consort and the Apostle
of Apostles, the woman whom Jesus kissed and called his blessed
one - the woman who knew the All, and the woman that Jesus loved.
In short, Mary Magdalene was closer to Jesus than anyone else,
and this begs an intriguing question: For the sake of accepting
that Jesus was married (like the apostles whose wives also traveled
with them), would we really prefer to believe that Jesus opted
for a noncommittal relationship with a prostitute instead of
having a wife?
reputation was decimated by a campaign of propaganda that had
no biblical foundation whatever. In the course of this, Jesus'
own humanity was substantially violated, while his mother became
a thoroughly sexless wonder who represented nobody. Demeaned
in such a way, she has never been a model for everyday womanhood,
which is why so many now look to Mary Magdalene. One cannot
find anything of female consequence in a virgin mother image,
but there is a romance of the sacred feminine in the Sophia
inheritance of Mary Magdalene. From her feistiness to her weeping,
from her wisdom to her uncertainty, she has all the attributes
of reality and her loyalty is never once seen to waver. Of course
Jesus loved her. Why would he not? She has been called the Goddess
in the Gospels, she has sexual presence, and her story embodies
a wealth of adventurous experience. But she was the mother of
the Desposyni heirs and, because of that, her character was
brutally assassinated by a fearful and jealous establishment.
And as for Jesus - his persona was left historically high and
dry, with his mother a virgin and his loved-one a whore!
