Secrets of the Magdalene Scrolls author Bettye Johnson has delved deeper into the life of Mary Magdalene than The Da Vinci Code or other books about Mary Magdalene. With the revelation of the Gospel of Judas joining past discoveries such as the Gospel of Mary and The Gospel of Thomas, the public is ready to know about the life and times of Mary Magdalene. Johnson will speak at the East West Bookshop, Seattle, WA Friday, May 5 from 7 to 9:30 p.m. Johnson’s topic will be Revealing the Unknown Mary Magdalene. In her speaking presentations Johnson strips away the myths and disinformation that has grown up around Mary Magdalene.
In her well-researched novel, Johnson answers the questions of why the Church suppressed Mary Magdalene’s own ministry; her background and lineage; her relationship with Jesus and if they had children; where she went after the crucifixion; her connection to the Black Madonna and the Knights Templar as well as Mary Magdalene’s legacy.
