    So what are your thoughts on Mary Magdalene and her relationship with Jesus?

      What relationship?
      The real one or the contrived one about having been His lover/wife, bearing Him children and all that nonsense? This only appeals to those who don't believe the account of (and purpose of) His death and resurrection.
      Therein ends the argument. Not a hard call for me!

      I think that they loved each other, and were good friends. If they really existed, that is .

    I just know a lot was left out of the bible, but don't get mad with me b/c I don't know much.

    There is no real proof that Mary Magdalene had an affectionate relationship with Jesus let alone being his wife. There are curious moments in the bible that point to such a possibility. The gospel of John which has long been considered the most unreliable mentions a Loved One at the table during the last supper. Who was this Loved One? No one knows. could it have been Mary Magdalene? I for one would very much like to think so.

    There are accounts of life in the early church indicating that women had a far bigger role to play than they ended up playing in later centuries. Maybe the Medieval Marthas were the last remnants of the divinity in women expressed by what were by then considered an heretical sect.

    Yes a fair bit was left out of the new testament including the gospel of Mary and the gospel of Thomas.
