Mary Magdalene has been a person of great interest since early Christian times. With each passing era she has been recreated and transformed to serve ecclesiastical and societal needs. Her role as first witness of the Resurrection triumphs over all the other attempts to devalue her worth as a woman. The story appears, with slight variations, in the gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke. My primary interest is in her emotional reaction to this mission that she has been given joy, fear, confusion, concern that she would be believed.
