"Biblical Women": An investigation into the age-old mystery surrounding the identity and character of Mary Magdalene, one of the Bible's best known women, produces some startling insights. Who was Mary Magdalene? Was she a fallen woman, rescued from a sinful life by Jesus? Or was she Christ's beloved disciple? What role did she play among the disciples of Jesus?

Exile constitutes one of the most central experiences in the Bible, notably in the book of Genesis. The question has rarely been asked however as to why exile plays such an important role in the lives of Biblical characters.
