mary magdalene was the mother of jesus


From wiki sub voce magdala :

" The Jewish Talmud distinguishes between two Magdalas only.[4] Magdala Gadar—One Magdala was in the east, on the River Yarmouk near Gadara (in the Middle Ages "Jadar", now Umm Qais), thus acquiring the name Magdala Gadar.

Magdala Nunayya—There was another, better-known Magdala near Tiberias, Magdala Nunayya ("Magdala of the fishes"), which would locate it on the shore of the Sea of Galilee. Al-Majdal, a Palestinian Arab village depopulated in the lead up to the 1948 Arab-Israeli war was identified as the site of this Magdala. The modern Israeli municipality of Migdal (Khirbet Medjdel), founded in 1910 and about 6 km NNW of Tiberias, has expanded into the area of the former village. "

Now all that is entirely preposterous !!!

Firstly, the date of composition of the talmud is disputable, but generally placed between the II and the V centuries ce, thus the 2 mentions of magdala there might as well be very late and influenced by christianity.

Secondly, neither of these 2 alleged magdalas in the talmud can be identified with certainty.

Third, the first magdala here, if it is gadara, has nothing to do with gospel magdala.

Fourth, magdala nunayya cannot be identified with certainty and the talmud itself did not explain the magdalene in mary magdalene with a hometown at all !!!


The funny thing here is, not only does jewish lore not connect mary magdalene, a supposedly jewish woman, with a magdala at all ; instead, as late as the XIV century, DENIES SUCH A LINK OUTRIGHT !!!

The midrash ha-gadol is a XIV century compilation of traditional jewish texts. Here is how it explains the name magdalene, quoting an XI century rabbi :

" the Midrash HaGadol (Deut. 13:7) states that the mother of Jesus was named "Miriam Magdala Nishaia" (Mary Magdalene), which name, according to the 11th-century Talmudic exegete, Rashi, meant "Mary, the Braider of women's hair."

The first extremely interesting thing for us here about this notice above from the midrash ha-gadol, is the identification of mary magdalene with the mother of jesus. Not his follower as in gospel lore, nor his lover as in apocryphal lore. No. His mom !

Now to the thing with braiding women´s hair : mary magdalene as hairdresser ? No. It´s a malicious pun. First of all, the braider thing is only in the word nishaia. What this funny rabbi is saying is, that magdala means nishaia, a braider of hair :

מרים מגדלא נשייא : from right to left : miriam magdala nishaia .

Rabbi rashi had in mind 2 hebrew words, miqsheh: (an artistic) hairdo ; and nasak, to weave.

Thus his nishaia means the weaver of hair, the braider.

He is saying, magdala (means) nishaia : magdala means hairdresser.

Which is nonsense in hebrew, aramaic or what-have-you semitic language.

Our lying rabbi rashi knows all too well that magdala really means mashab: drawing water, from hebrew shaab, to draw,and mah´, water. But he cannot tell us the truth : he must conceal it, just like matthew and mark. And he overwrites mashab, drawing water, with the similar-sounding miqsheh, hairdo ! ( Or nishaia).

MAG - DAL - ENE : she who draws water from the well.


MAG in mag-dalene is the common pansemitic root we saw above in hebrew mah´, water.

DAL is another pansemitic root , eg in hebrew dalah, meaning to draw (water, for irrigation, from a well or river).

ENE is our third pansemitic root here, eni or weni or ain, meaning spring, source,well,river.

For instance, in hebrew EN - charod = well of harod.

The variant hebrew form ayin means spring of water.

Thus the -ENE in magdal-ene = well, spring.

Now again : the mother of jesus, mary , was called magdalene = she who draws water from the well. She was no hairdresser. No hooker. No lover of jesus. She was his mother !!!

Why was she nicked water-drawer from the well ?

Because her husband, not joseph who never existed at all, but her real husband, hanan the hidden, was a well/spring/river : he was a daily bather or baptist, a rainmaker, a holy man, and the fountain of righteousness at qumran, a title bestowed on the spiritual leader of that community of real early christians, the natsorayya or nazoraeans = keepers of the torah.

These real early christians were jews, fundamentalist fanatic jews, antiroman jews, nationalist/zionistic jews in the I century ce, hell-bent on awating a messiah to come down from the sky with the heavenly host, to free israel from roman occupation.

That is why proroman matthew and mark, proroman talmud, and protocapitalfascist midrash ha-gadol, had so much fun overwriting magdalene as a hairdresser or somehow, in extrabiblical interpretation based on references to a city of magdala in some manuscripts of matthew and mark and in the lying talmud, deriving her sobriquet from a town of magdala nobody had ever heard of until the VI century .

See, these real early christians, the nazoraeans or keepers of the torah, had loads to do with water. John the baptist for instance, a son of mary magdalene and brother of james the just, judas iscariot, simeon bar cleophas and jesus bar saba, was not at all a baptist in the modern christian sense, that is some priest who baptizes the newly born to wash away their alleged original sin. No, baptist means daily bather, immerser in the cold living water of rivers such as the jordan, for bodily cleansing, AFTER repentance of sins.

This we know from I-century jewish historian josephus flavius in his book antiquitates judaicae.

Plus, these natsorayya had a training center at qumran on the dead sea, where they wrote the dead sea scrolls, which feature a spiritual leader termed fountain of righteousness, in hebrew yoreh-ha-zedek. Thus water for these fundamentalist fanatic antiroman guerrillas was also a pivotal metaphor in their ideology : water as the source of justice, embodied by their "pope", and water as the cleansing flood that will purge humanity once and for all, like in noah´s time, of the evil romans and most everyone else except for them - the saints, the holier-than-thou.
