9781591430124: Magdalene's Lost Legacy: Symbolic Numbers and the Sacred Union in Christianity

In Magdalene’s Lost Legacy, author Margaret Starbird decodes the symbolic numbers embedded in the original Greek phrases of the New Testament--revealing the powerful presence of the feminine divine.

The New Testament contains wide use of gematria, a literary device that allows the sums of certain phrases to produce sacred numbers. Exploring the hidden meanings behind these numbers, Starbird reveals that the union between Jesus and his bride, Mary Magdalene, formed a sacred partnership that was the cornerstone of the earliest Christian community.

Magdalene’s Lost Legacy demonstrates how the crucial teaching of the sacred marriage that unites masculine and feminine principles--the heiros gamos--is the partnership model for life on our planet and the ultimate blueprint for civilization. Starbird’s research challenges the concept that Christ was celibate and establishes Mary Magdalene as the human incarnation of the sacred bride. The author also explains the true meaning of the “666” prophesied in the Book of Revelation. Through this potent reclaiming of the lost legacy of Mary Magdalene, Margaret Starbird offers the opportunity to restore the divine feminine to her rightful role as bride, beloved, and sacred partner.

Book Description Bear & Co. 1 Paperback(s), 2003. soft. Book Condition: New. Was Mary Magdalene really the wife of Jesus Christ? Using the practice of gematria—a system in which literary texts are mined for sacred numbers—Margaret Starbird re-examines the books of the New Testament to uncover evidence that the union of Jesus and Mary was intended as the model of a balanced, successful partnership. Connecting Mary with the concept of the Divine Feminine, Starbird posits that she was the human incarnation of the sacred bride. Starbird also delves into the complex and ambiguous Revelation of John, tracing references to secret traditions and decoding the ancient mystery of the number 666. 170. Bookseller Inventory # 70220

Book Description Bear & Company, 2003. Book Condition: New. For two millennia the role of Mary Magdalene in the foundation of the Christian Church has been hotly disputed. This study uncovers the symbolic numbers or gematria in the New Testament, and explores the hidden meanings behind them. They reveal a long-suppressed fact: that Mary was the bride of Christ, in a sacred union between the masculine and feminine principles that formed the cornerstone of the early Church.
