2012, this great year of great change, is continuing to expose scientific, religious and mythical inaccuracies from Higgs Boson to a new Mayan Calendar for the future to this, the life of Jesus, and there is much more to come. The discovery of seemingly authentic ancient papyrus with writing referring to his wife and her status as his disciple is a reminder of how early (male) Christians twisted the facts about Jesus's beliefs and teachings to substantiate their position on the role of women in the Church and in the world, leading to a deliberate disempowerment of women which exists still. If it had been otherwise, priests would not be celibate and male in the Catholic Church, and the Anglican Church would be without its present misogyny, and both would be much healthier for it.
Jesus's wife was, of course, Mary Magdalene, the woman who was his key disciple and who sat at his right hand at the Last Supper. It was she who with Mother Mary and Mary Jacob took the true teachings of her husband and kept them alive as she travelled through France for many years, knowledge based on the ancient wisdoms and which forms the New Consciousness to come; in her, as in Jesus, came together the divine masculine and the divine feminine and the manifestation of their example of true spiritual balance and unconditional love lies at the heart of our spiritual purpose.
It was the fear of the power of the feminine and a desire for control which caused the men of the Church to exclude women and to intercede between the people and their God. After two thousand years of this insistent demonstration of male authority, the time has come for the example of Mary Magdalene, and Jesus, to live again. Already the protests from the Church at the claims for this tiny scrap of Egyptian paper have begun, but they are vented as we see the collapse of the authority of the Church of Rome and the deepening schisms among Christians elsewhere. What interesting times we live in, do we not?]]>
