Jesus and Mary Magdalene: a love story

ByMichael Paul Burns

In this book, the author attempts to tell the story of Jesus in the first person, hoping thereby to enter his mind to some degree. Jesus is seen as being completely human, “like us in all things except sin” as St Paul puts it. The implication is that besides experiencing weakness, limitation and even ignorance, he must have been a fully integrated sexual being, with his sexuality playing a decisive part in his psychology. Mary is seen as the mysterious “disciple whom Jesus loved” who features prominently in the fourth Gospel. Their relationship is explored with what is hoped is openness and honesty. The work is itself fictional, but follows closely the Gospel narratives.
