The Healing Wisdom of Mary Magdalene: Esoteric Secrets of the Fourth Gospel (Paperback)
An in-depth study of the heart-centered teachings of Mary Magdalene
• Explains how the Fourth Gospel of the New Testament, specifically the Gospel of Signs, is actually a direct transcription of Mary Magdalene’s oral teachings
• Reveals Mary Magdalene as a gifted visionary teacher and the best qualified disciple to lead the Jesus movement after his death
• Details how the Gospel of Signs outlines 7 key steps for personal transformation and healing
The discovery and translation of the Gnostic Gospels have revealed Mary Magdalene to be a gifted visionary teacher and the best qualified disciple to lead the Jesus movement following his death. Yet, according to most scholars, only a few fragments of her actual teachings have survived.
Sharing more than 20 years of research, inspired by a profound experience at the cave in southern France where Mary Magdalene is reputed to have spent her final years, Jack Angelo reveals that the Fourth Gospel of the New Testament, traditionally attributed to John, is actually a direct transcription of Mary Magdalene’s oral teachings. He explains how the Fourth Gospel was recast by more conservative members of the Jesus movement, such as Peter and Andrew, to hide Mary’s authorship and suppress her role as head disciple. Delving deeply into the many layers of meaning within the “Gospel of Signs”--the first 11 chapters of the Fourth Gospel which describe seven of Jesus’ miracles--he shows how Mary’s teachings outline seven key steps for personal transformation and profound healing. For example, the sixth sign describes the shamanic healing of a blind man when Jesus spits on clay and smears the paste over the man’s eyes. Angelo explains how the deeper meaning of this sign is about perceiving with the “eyes of the heart.”
Beyond the beauty and simplicity of Mary’s wisdom for personal transformation and healing, Angelo also shows how Mary’s heart-centered teachings embody the resurgence of feminine energy that is vitally needed to restore balance to the psyche and health of humanity as well as to Earth.

“Thank you! This book is a welcome gift for disciples of Mary Magdalene and Jesus. Illuminating texts from the Fourth Gospel, Jack Angelo reveals the perspective of ‘the woman who knew the All’--Mary Magdalene herself. Here at last, flowing from Jesus’s seven miracles, are Magdalene’s wisdom teachings to guide the pilgrim soul on the Way of the Heart.”

“Jack Angelo has discovered a treasure chest to which the key has been lost for 2,000 years. In this important and fascinating book Mary Magdalene takes us into the eternal, living stream of her own consciousness and decodes for us the healing wisdom, hidden until now, in the part of the Fourth Gospel called ‘The Book of Signs.’ Angelo shows us how seven miracles of Jesus are intended to be a roadmap to transformation as the blessed couple both teach and model the way of total one-ness and heart-centered knowledge. Patriarchal blindness caused the message to be lost in part, but it still carries dynamic power to heal our planet and end the existential sickness that distorts much of Christian thinking. We come to realize that ‘the beginning is right now’ and creation is happening as we awaken to the words of Maryam, master teacher, beloved disciple, wife, and companion of Yeshua.”

“The Healing Wisdom of Mary Magdalene is a rich and fascinating read. I could not put it down. Jack Angelo’s insights on the real meaning behind the miracle stories in the gospels are a treasure trove of wisdom much needed in the world today . . . a pleasure to read.”
