Mary Magdalene; a film

There is a film released this week for viewing at main cinemas, it depicts the life of Mary Magdalene. I have only seen the trailer, but I do intend to watch the film. I am always interested how MSM portray the Bible and Christianity.

Mary Magdalene Trailer (2018) Rooney Mara Jesus Movie

It as already started some opposition, in the fact that it appears to portray a romantic [more then just a platonic] relationship between Mary Magdalene and Jesus. This in itself is not unusual; there have been many film, and book portrayals concerning this alleged relationship.

Mary Magdalene [Mary M is mentioned only a few times in the Gospels.

There was a blog about Walkers crisps being Haram or not. There are lots of dietary laws that Muslims share with Jewish tradition. Both traditions regard Christians who follow no such laws as being wrong, unclean, or we do not care to follow laws laid down and simply do our own thing.

Why is this? I agree some Christians read the Old Testament and simply choose to ignore them, [or indeed some Christians pick and choose which laws to follow] Some Christians follow Jesus’s example. Mark in chapter 7 gives an example of this.

Part Nine. Jesus Teaching continues, Feeding of the five thousand

It is said that Jesus travelled round Galilee, preaching, healing the sick and doing many miracles.

But what is a miracle?

Miracle | Definition of miracle in English by Oxford Dictionaries

An extraordinary and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore attributed to a divine agency....'People with traditional religious beliefs may view psychic phenomena as miracles or divine interventions by God.

One of Jesus’s miracles is the feeding of the five thousand. This is mentioned in all four gospels

Part seven. Jesus starts his teaching.

After Jesus had spent time, being tempted in the wilderness he began his teaching. This is described in three of the four gospels; all record the same thing but place emphases on different things. But still keeping to the same basic facts.

Mathew chapter 4 verse 12 to 17

Preaching in Galilee

Now when Jesus heard that John had been imprisoned, he went into Galilee. While in Galilee, he moved from Nazareth to make his home in Capernaum by the sea, in the region of Zebulun and Naphtali, so that what was spoken by Isaiah the prophet would be fulfilled:

Part six; Baptism and the Temptation of Jesus

Part six; Baptism and the Temptation of Jesus

As I have said; the four gospels were written some years after Jesus’s death and was written for different people, same news but presented in a different way.

The Baptism and Temptation of Jesus; Mark ch1 v9

Now in those days Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan River. And just as Jesus was coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens splitting apart and the Spirit descending on him like a dove. And a voice came from heaven: “You are my one dear Son; in you I take great delight.” The Spirit immediately drove him into the wilderness. He was in the wilderness forty days, enduring temptations from Satan. He was with wild animals, and angels were ministering to his needs.
