Mary Magdalene (Mary who is called Magdalene, Μαρία ἡ καλουμένη Μαγδαληνή)[1] was a Jewish woman from the tribe of Benjamin who was also a disciple of Christ, from the town of Magdala. She appears in all four Gospels in the New Testament. Mary came with Jesus on his journey to Jerusalem and witnessed his crucifixion.[2] She was also the first person to see that Jesus had resurrected.[3] Jesus cast 7 demons out of her by the power of the Holy Spirit.[4]

The New Testament does not mention her beyond the Gospels. It should be noted that the view of Mary Magdelene as a prostitute is not found within the Bible or the writings of the early church fathers.
