It was good, but tame. It's CNN after all.
I knew most of that about Magdelene so some things on the "Virgin" Mary were more interesting to me.
I did not know she gave birth at 13 or was already engaged
to Joseph. *cough*
Though I had previously heard she most likely didn't travel to give birth or traveled only to nearby Bethel (not Bethlehem) as Jewish lore demanded
the gospels be written (for marketing purposes).
For tons more on The Magdelene, National Geographic channel is showing Da Vinci Code: The Whole Story
this week. It's quite long. Hours. And
I've never been more convinced that if there was any divinity to Jesus at all, the church most definitely got it all wrong. Mostly on purpose. Good
marketing. Bad religion.
Martin Luther was on the right track with reformations, but it's been soooo perverted with bad politics since then. I'm seriously disgusted with it
all lately. Can't even bring myself to argue with the "true believers."
But good special.
