Mary Magdalene, the Mystical Bride of Christ

        A small fragment, "And Jesus said to them: My wife" of the inscription on a Coptic papyrus dating back to the 5th century AD became an evidence to an ongoing debate about whether Mary Magdalene was a wife and married to Jesus Christ, the announcement was made in a report at the 10th International Congress of Coptic Studies.

The said papyrus coincides with the recently studied apocryphal Gospel of Thomas, Mary and Philip that has been found in 1945 at Nag Hammadi that tells about the controversial conversation of Jesus Christ between His apostles asking why He loves Mary Magdalene more than them;

       Quoted,  “And the companion of [the Son - is Mary] Magdalene. [Lord loved Mary] more than [all] the disciples, and he [often] kissed her [mouth]. The rest of [the disciples, seeing] it [love] told him: “Why do you love her more than all of us?” The Savior answered them, “Why I do not love you like her?”

       But according to the researchers the following words do not prove that Jesus was married. Kissing in the mouth is not so much evidence of erotic love as intimate knowledge transfer of the devoted worshiper. Also, the phrase suggests that in the 2nd century among early Christians there was no consensus on the question of whether Jesus was married and whether the followers of his teaching were better to marry or remain single.

Meanwhile, there are some instances that shows Mary Magdalene appeared and played a special role to the life of Jesus Christ; during his suffering on the cross, up to His death, to His burial and she was the first one to see the resurrection of Jesus Christ and first to hear His command to the apostles to tell them that He has risen from dead. She was recognized by the Catholic Church as saint and given the status of the "Mystical Bride of Christ."
