DEI & The Bible: How Common Interpretations of Bible Stories Have Taught Us to Mistreat Marginalized People

- What is the common interpretation?
- Who is the interpreter and who does the story serve?
- What information is the common interpretation based on?

Public interest in Mary Magdalene is intense and this interest encouraged Dr. Cindy Caldwell to create classes to teach about the mythology surrounding this close apostle of Jesus. The classes are typically divided into three:
- Mary Magdalene in the Bible
- Magdalene in the Gnostic Gospels
- Magdalene and the Divine Feminine Archetype.
Mary Magdalene has been labeled a prostitute and the wife of Jesus. Today, she is considered to be a strong expression of the divine feminine archetype, as well as providing balance and wholeness to Jesus’ expression of the divine masculine archetype. Magdalene is only mentioned thirteen times in the Bible and yet, there is no one in the Bible who has had such a bizarre post-biblical life in the human imagination. Dr. Caldwell’s classes explore who Magdalene has been and who she is becoming.
