Mary Magdalene Vists Jesus' Empty Tomb

Mary Magdalene’s age is unknown; biblical texts say nothing about when she was born or died. Like Jesus’ male disciples, Mary Magdalene appears to have come from Galilee. She was with him at the beginning of his ministry in Galilee and continued after his execution. The name Magdalene suggests her origin as the town of Magdala (Taricheae), on the Sea of Galilee’s western shore. It was an important source of salt, an administrative center, and the largest of ten major towns around the lake.
