Sum up your views of Mary Magdalene’s role in Christianity. Take a few paragraphsto do this, being sure to include information from this book in your answers.

(Presvytera Deborah writes: Answers will vary; here’s mine!) Mary Magdaleneis more than an historical figure. She embodies the feminine consciousness,just as Jesus models the masculine consciousness. I believe Jesus’ persecutionand death occurred as a result of his attempt to restore the feminineconsciousness. Preaching and teaching was all well and good, but the restorationof the partnership model was a huge challenge for a world built on the masculinepower principle. And those “powers that be” are still fighting for their”rights” today.

I am encouraged that Starbird’s work has helped many women understand theneed for the restoration of feminine consciousness. I will be even moreencouraged to see men stepping into that same position. Esoteric groups havekept sacred partnership alive, but they have mostly remained hidden. Perhapsthe turning of a new age will see their revelation as truth-keepers cometo the forefront.
