Jesus’ Most Loved Woman was a Prostitute!

Mary Magdalene and Jesus

Prostitution comes from the latin word prostituta, meaning to expose, to dishonor. It is an act of providing sexual services to another person: be it for a fee or Free.

Prostitution is legal to some countries such as Europe (England, France, Wales, Denmark, New Zealand, etc…) in most parts of South America, Australia, and some Asian countries. The brothel capital of the world is Israel (Tel Aviv) – a country that can be traced back to the time of Abraham. Israel comes from the name given to Jacob (book of Genesis 32:29).

But rejoice ‘ye… prostitutes! For all you know, the most loved woman of Jesus was like you! Yes, a prostitute. Her name was Mary Magdalene. She was loved by Jesus more than His disciples. She was an epitome of a sinner but was later on considered by the Roman Catholics, Eastern Orthodox, Anglican and the Lutheran churches to be a saint (Mary Magdalene’s feast day falls on July 22.)

Mary Magdalene or Mary Magdala was mentioned first in Luke 8:2-3. She was a woman possessed by seven demons but was cured. Although her name was not mentioned very much in the gospels, her story was prominent when she appeared to have witnessed Jesus’ crucifixion, and death. Mary Magdalene was also the first person to see the resurrected Jesus.

Prostitutes rejoice! Mary Magdalene was a prostitute, but she reformed and is now considered a virtue of repentance.

Prostitutes rejoice! . It’s not too late to be a saint like Mary Magdalene! You just have to accept the truth. Ask for forgiveness. Soon, you’ll be like Mary Magdalene who is the patron saint of Magdalen College, Oxford and Magdalene College, Cambridge.

    Actually, she was not a prostitute. But Jesus would have loved her just as much if she had been–that’s the important part. And those who would condemn her if she had been were the real sinners–the ones who judged, condemned, and wilfully refused to follow Jesus’ teaching to love all and leave the judgement to God. Jesus’ embrace of what the world called (and continues to call) “sinners” was meant to be an example for all of us to follow.

      The mere fact that Mary Magdalene was with several men-that time-was enough to picture her a prostitute. Moreover, you are absolutely right – we are all sinners and need God’s grace to be saved.
      Thanks for the comment Nancy 🙂
