This is really a complicated relationship rendered in the simplest of ways: love between two individuals, divine or otherwise. In my research on Mary Magdalene I came across much speculation on this relationship. In Gnostic texts she is a woman who definitely did not play a minor or casual role either during or after the life of Jesus. Although the historical documentation that refers to the Magdalene following the crucifixion is interwoven with legend and myth, many articles written by scholars say that it’s quite possible that she was married to Jesus. I chose to show them as a loving couple.
