After the Lord Jesus cured Mary Magdalene of possession by seven demons, she became his faithful follower. There is no scriptural basis that she was the type of immoral woman that she is portrayed by some to be. She was a single woman of means who devoted her life and resources to serving Jesus and his group of disciples. She was the leader of the women who followed him. Mary Magdalene is a wonderful model of creative, productive singleness. She focused totally on Jesus Christ and served him faithfully in life, in death, and after his resurrection.
