Mary Magdalene Lore

Click her for more info on this Dwayna Wisdom & Where's My Jewelry? original designMary Magdalene was said to have traveled throughout the Mediterranean preaching the Gospel of Jesus in the years that followed his crucifixion and resurrection. She was, it is said of royal lineage and was received at all the best palaces on the social circuit at the time. One such visit was to Tiberius Caesar's home in Rome  Mary was said to have told with great animation the story of Jesus' appearance to her upon his resurrection.  Mary employed an egg to illustrate the concept of being born to a new life. Tiberius Caesar evidently skeptical of her story is said to have said that the likelihood that Jesus rose from the dead was about the same likelihood that the white egg she held in her hand would turn red. At that moment as she held out her hand the egg turned  red. This is supposed to be the origin of the centuries old custom of exchanging red eggs at Easter in the Byzantine East.
