Mary Magdalene – The First Pope
The evidence in this book Mary Magdalene – The First Pope sheds a new light on the events that happened at the resurrection of Jesus from the tomb on that first Easter morning. There was always a major conflict between the gospels in reporting the events at the tomb, which could be summed up into one question with regard to John’s gospel. The question is as follows:
How could Mary Magdalene see two angels sitting in the tomb on the morning of the resurrection while Peter could only see the folded linen clothes?
The answer is equally intriguing because the new evidence shows that the gospel writers had applied an image of the holy tabernacle as a motif to explain the mystical transition of Jesus between heaven and earth with the resurrection. This allowed the writers to describe the mystical event in a terminology, which mere mortals could relate to.
The tabernacle was the most holy shrine of the Israelite’s on their journey through the wilderness and it was made up of a tent, which was divided into two rooms by a veil. The inner chamber was God’s exclusive holy room and only the high priest could enter into it. It housed the Ark of the Covenant and two angelic cherubim sitting at either end of the Lord’s seat. The outer chamber was where the regular priests ministered and thus far could they go for they were forbidden to enter God’s inner chamber.
The new evidence shows that the gospel writers had afforded Mary Magdalene the privileged position of the original high priests where she saw into God’s inner chamber and viewed the two angelic cherubim sitting at either end of where the body of Jesus had lain. In contrast, the writers had afforded Peter access only to the outer chamber where he saw the folded linen clothes.
It can therefore be seen that the gospel writers had projected Mary Magdalene as having the same status as the traditional high priest because she saw into God’s inner chamber. Mary Magdalene therefore stood in the highest priestly office above Peter and thus she was destined to become the first Pope. You know the rest for male supremacy prevailed and Peter acquired the position of being the first Pontiff.
Overview of Mary Magdalene – The First Pope
The gospel writers had presented the scene of the resurrection of Jesus in the most enigmatic of ways but in reality those historians had hidden the display with the tabernacle in plain sight for all to see. There was a very distinctive trail of clues leading to the tabernacle and the heavenly orbits. The trail began when I noticed in the Book of Exodus that three of the four gold and silver weights given to build the tabernacle had the same numerical values as the heavenly orbits. (Exodus 38:24–29) This clue opened the flood gates where I found that the dimensions of the tabernacle had the same numerical values as the heavenly orbits. The discovery with the heavenly orbits was the bedrock of an overall series of discoveries and the findings have stood up to the most stringent of litmus tests with the analysis involving two different tabernacle tent sizes.
The next important clue was the reference in the Book of Hebrews to the “pattern of things in the heaven being purified.” (Book of Hebrews Chapter 29 Verse 23) This clue led to the outline of two planetary conjunctions in scroll 4Q319 of the Dead Sea scrolls. These conjunctions happened over long term time periods, which seemed to have been viewed by the priests as sacred anniversaries. From this discovery, the conjunctions or anniversary periods for all of the seven planets were drawn up using a simulation exercise. These anniversaries were validated where some details of the related time periods were found on Babylonian tablets dating back to the 4th century BCE. The challenge then was to see if the designers of the tabernacle had known about those planetary conjunctions. The outcome was remarkable for the results showed that the numerical values of all of the seven special anniversaries or conjunctions of the planets had been factored into the dimensions or lists of items in the tabernacle tent structure. This outcome with finding those anniversaries engraved in the tabernacle was again validated as factual by the comparative analysis litmus test involving two different tent sizes.
The facts with the orbits of the planets and their long term anniversaries in the tabernacle had clearly been established but what did it all mean? The answer was eventually gleaned from the Book of Enoch where it insinuated that the planets were viewed as dark angels or demons. There was redemption however for on their particular anniversaries the planets came in from the abyss of the night sky to cross the face of the sun. The evidence suggests that this comic display was viewed as a purification process by the Hebrew priests because they could observe light overcoming darkness. It made such an impression that the priests designed the tabernacle to be a mirror image of the planetary display. This demonstration of a purification process with the planets as the role models for demons is an aspect that will need to be researched and debated by theologians and biblical scholars.
The prophets had predicted the coming of a Messiah who would open up a gateway to the kingdom of heaven. But now we also know that they had designed the tabernacle to explain the transition of their Messiah from this earthly world of the outer holy room into the heavenly realm of God’s chamber. Therefore, the gospel writers were following in the footsteps of the prophets when they used the setting with the tabernacle to suggest how Jesus passed over the great divide into God’s holy of holies chamber when the veil was rent in two after he died on the cross. So when the gospel writers related the events of the resurrection decades later, they told the story through the lens of the tabernacle for that was its intended purpose. In relating the events the writers had afforded Mary Magdalene the status of the traditional high priest where they told how she looked into God’s holy of holies chamber to see the two angelic cherubim sitting at either end of where the body of Jesus had lain. They completed the setting by recording how Jesus gave Mary Magdalene the PR role of announcing his resurrection to the universal audience.
The gospel of Mary outlined how some of the apostles recognized that Mary Magdalene was taught a secret wisdom by Jesus and they asked her to teach them all she knew. But Peter played down the importance of Mary Magdalene’s esteemed role with Jesus when he expressed that women were not men and their word could not be trusted. We have seen that there was indeed a wonderful secret knowledge in the cosmic aura surrounding the tabernacle and how the seven demons were purified by light overcoming darkness. This was likely to have been the wisdom that Jesus conveyed to Mary Magdalene and its effects materialized with her initiation to High Priestess in the cosmic expression “out of whom went seven demons.”
In 2016 Pope Francis upgraded Mary Magdalene to the same status as the other apostles where her anniversary was deemed to be a feast day. Her feast day is celebrated on July 22nd.
This finding with Mary Magdalene as a High Priestess should help the campaign for the ordination of women to the priesthood.
