Magdalene's Lost Legacy: Symbolic Numbers and the Sacred Union in Christianity Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Reveals the symbolic numerology of the New Testament proving that the Sacred Union of Jesus and his bride was the cornerstone of the earliest Christian community. x Explains the true meaning of the "666" prophesied in the Book of Revelation. x Shows how the worship of a celibate Christ created the hierarchical priesthood now embroiled in scandal. In the face of the ascending feminine identity and the waning credibility of the patriarchal institutions of Western civilization, Magdalene's Lost Legacy explodes the myth of the celibate Jesus. Using New Testament gematria, symbolic number values encoded in the Greek phrases, the author reveals that the sacred couple was one of the essential pillars of early Christian teachings, before being denied by the architects of institutional Christianity and obscured by later Church doctrine. Starbird shows how the nuptials of the Lamb and his Bride prophesied in the Book of Revelation restores a crucial teaching now forgotten by the Church: The Sacred Union-the hieros gamos or "sacred marriage"-of masculine and feminine principles is the partnership model for life on our planet. She also reveals how the scandal unfolding in the Roman Catholic priesthood has its roots in the mistaken notion of a celibate Jesus and the worship of the masculine principle stripped of its feminine partner. Magdalene's Lost Legacy provides a powerful tool for rediscovering the faith of the earliest Christian community and restoring its tenets.

Synopsis:

In Magdalenes Lost Legacy, author Margaret Starbird decodes the symbolic numbers embedded in the original Greek phrases of the New Testament--revealing the powerful presence of the feminine divine.

The New Testament contains wide use of gematria, a  literary device that allows the sums of certain phrases to produce sacred numbers. Exploring the hidden meanings behind these numbers, Starbird reveals that the union between Jesus and his bride, Mary Magdalene, formed a sacred partnership that was the cornerstone of the earliest Christian community.

Magdalenes Lost Legacy demonstrates how the crucial teaching of the sacred marriage that unites masculine and feminine principles--the heiros gamos--is the partnership model for life on our planet and the ultimate blueprint for civilization. Starbirds research challenges the concept that Christ was celibate and establishes Mary Magdalene as the human incarnation of the sacred bride. The author also explains the true meaning of the “666” prophesied in the Book of Revelation. Through this potent reclaiming of the lost legacy of Mary Magdalene, Margaret Starbird offers the opportunity to restore the divine feminine to her rightful role as bride, beloved, and sacred partner.
