Just in time for Valentines! My favorite movie of all time is Jesus Christ Superstar (2000 version), starring Glenn Carter as Jesus. In the movie, one of my favorite scenes is where Jesus and Mary Magdalene are having an intimate moment, in the clip "Everything's Alright," which is based loosely on John 12:1-8 and Matthew 26: 6-13. Now, my question is this: What is the real truth behind the relationship between Jesus and Mary Magdalene? Were they in love with each other? Were they married? Were they an 'item'?
Also, John said that it was Mary of Bethany that anointed Jesus' feet. So is Mary of Bethany the same Mary Magdalene or are they two different persons? Any thoughts?
