Mary's childhood in Magdala leaves her with emotional scars she fears will never heal - until she meets Jesus. Recognising the importance of Jesus's work, she decides to do all that she can to support him, but what good can a woman do in a man's world? Will Mary ever be accepted by Jesus's other disciples? What will she learn from the miracles she witnesses and from her many conversations with the Son of God? To Mary the message seems simple, so why can't others believe? After witnessing Jesus's agonising death, Mary is the first to see the empty tomb, the first to see the risen Christ. What role can she play in spreading the news about Jesus after his death?
