Magdalene (A Short Story)
She is named for Miriam, the sister of Moses—one of the greatest women in Jewish history. Her people are all but slaves, and she dreams of doing as Miriam did: of dancing deliverance and ushering in freedom.
But the dream is bitter, for she is Miriam of Magdala, possessed of seven devils.
This is a powerful, poetic interpretation of the life of Mary Magdalene and the Messiah she longs for.
