Mary Magdalene

Follower of Jesus and among the first to reach Jesus' tomb on Easter.

Open tomb

Mary Magdalene was the first to find
the open tomb on Easter

Jesus cured Mary Magdalene of demon possession and she became one of a group of women who followed Jesus from Galilee and ministered to him.  Mary witnessed the crucifixion and was among the first to visit the empty tomb on Easter and to see the risen Christ. Traditionally she has been identified as a prostitute but there is no basis for this in the Bible.

Luke 8:1-3 - Mary healed
Mark 15:40-41 - At the cross
John 20:1-18 - Easter witness
