Joan Taylor and Helen Bond Talk: Mary Magdalene

Professors Joan Taylor and Helen Bond


There’s a new film about Mary Magdalene due out on 16 March in the UK. One of the historical consultants to the film, Professor Joan Taylor (King’s College, London), invited Professor Helen Bond to join her at a special preview for cast and crew at the Curzon Theatre in London. Hear their reactions to the film here:

    3*** from Rockwall, TX (Rockwall) I’m a very big fan of Barron and I think he’s probably wildly underrated in an era where everyone is complaining about how hard it is to find a Mike LB in Texas these days that played the position in HS at a high level. Typically your powerful, athletic, tackling machine that you’d want as the tip of the spear for your D is going to play DE in the modern game but Barron played at Mike for Rockwall. You can see him reading keys in a variety of ways on film, reading the guards, reading the lead blockers, reading the RB trajectory, and he always diagnosis quickly and then plays downhill and fights through whatever he finds until he reaches the ball. If OSU can keep the ball funneled inside to him he’ll reward them some day with a 100+ tackle season. Grade: C+ The numbers here are low and they’ll probably have to transition some of their safety or star takes from previous seasons into ILBs in the coming seasons. That said, both of these guys are good takes and Barron in particular I think has All-B12 potential. custom writing

    There is so much more to Mary Magdalene than meets the eye. As one of 3 named women at the foot of the cross it is very likely she is the Beloved Disciple who wrote the 4th gospel… the men including John all fled. Her identity has been obscured because ‘A Beloved Disciple’ defaults to masculine. Read the evidence here

    To add to the Mary Magdalene research I would like to encourage everyone to take a fresh look at 1st Corinthians with quotation marks – they transform Paul’s writings from a jumbled mess to one that silences the traditions of men and liberates women – at this link

    In 2018 you put out a You Tube on” Jesus’ Vanishing Women” Is there any way I can receive that You Tube so that I can present it to a study group. Thank you Maxi Wiebe
