Magdalena portrays the story of Jesus as seen through the eyes of Mary Magdalene, and demonstrates how He values women by focusing on historical accounts of His interaction with them. As the film depicts, women in every culture share common needs, concerns, hopes and fears–as well as the unfortunate truth that many have felt the sting of being devalued or marginalized because of their gender.
Added to digitally enhanced footage from the original 1979 “JESUS” film, “Magdalena” seamlessly weaves the stories of four biblical women–Mary Magdalene, the Samaritan woman at the well, the woman who touched Jesus’ garment, and the woman caught in adultery–into newly filmed scenes. The film emphasizes Jesus’ compassion toward women and His ability to restore their dignity and identity through a personal encounter with Him.
Ministry staff are seeing an incredible response to “Magdalena,” which has become an essential tool for evangelizing and discipling women.
