Evangelio De Maria – (Spanish)
Mary Magdalene, Jesus’s Closest Disciple
Marvin Meyer, one of the foremost scholars of the Gnostic Gospels:
translates and introduces the Gnostic and New Testament texts that together reveal the story and importance of Mary Magdalene
includes new translations of the Gospels of Mary, Thomas, Philip, and related texts about Mary Magdalene
discloses, with Esther A. De Boer, the long-suppressed story of Mary’s vital role in the life of Jesus and in the formative period after his crucifixion
presents as authentically as possible the real Mary Magdalene
En El Evangelio de Maria, Marvin Meyer, el experto mas destacado en Evangelios Gnosticos, nos presenta la traduccion — por primera vez en espaol — de los textos mas antiguos y confiables que arrojan luz sobre el misterio de Maria Magdalena. Estos textos revelan su importancia como bienamada discipula de Jesus, al igual que apostol y evangelista por derecho propio. Tambien revelan una vibrante tradicion oral en la cual Maria Magdalena no solo es una seguidora de Jesus, sino su compaera y discipula mas cercana, una figura cuya relevancia para la cristiandad apenas hoy esta emergiendo de las sombras de la historia.
Este libro incluye extractos de los Evangelios del Nuevo Testamento, al igual que de los Evangelios Gnosticos y de otros textos, entre ellos el Evangelio de Maria, el Evangelio de Tomas y el Evangelio de Felipe.
Esther De Boer, una experta ampliamente respetada en Maria Magdalena y el Evangelio de Maria, ubica las traducciones de Meyer en el contexto actual de los ultimos estudios sobre el tema. Ella analiza el papel que desempea Maria en cada uno de los Evangelios en los cuales aparece, y la muestra como una mujer capaz y fuerte que representa una amenaza para la Iglesia primitiva, la cual estaba dominada por hombres.

The possibility of finding reliable information about the life of the historical Jesus has fascinated the imagination of generations of scholars from as early as the seventeenth century. Opinion on the issue has moved in waves, coming and going along with moods of pessimism and optimism. Until now, no one has brought together a comparison of the points of view of the most influential writers about the historical Jesus.
The Historical Jesus Quest brings together substantial extracts from the seminal works in Jesus studies over the last two centuries. The extracts are accompanied by brief introductions to each writer, helpful summaries of the central arguments of the works from which the extracts are taken, and incisive assessments of their continuing relevance to current debates. In one resource, this compendium provides the foundation upon which modern research is based and allows these great scholars_Spinoza, Troeltsch, D.F. Strauss, Wrede, Schweitzer, Kahler, Bultmann, Kasemann, and others_to speak in their own words. It is essential reading for all serious students of the Gospels and of the historical Jesus.
Introducing Jesus : A Short Guide To The Gospels History And Message$16.99Add to cart
To Christians worldwide, the man Jesus of Nazareth is the centerpiece of history, the object of faith, hope, and worship. Even those who do not follow him admit the vast influence of his life. For anyone interested in knowing more about Jesus, study of the four biblical Gospels is essential.
An abridged edition of the bestselling textbook Four Portraits, One Jesus by Mark Strauss, this simple, easy-to-understand guide introduces the four biblical Gospels and their subject, the life and person of Jesus.
Like different artists rendering the same subject using different styles and points of view, the Gospels paint four distinctive portraits of the same remarkable Jesus. With clarity and insight, Mark Strauss addresses questions that surround the study of Jesus and the Gospels. What are the Gospels – are they history, theology, biography? Where did they come from? What do we know about their context? What does each Gospel uniquely teach us about Jesus? Finally, he pulls it all together illuminating what the Gospels together teach about Jesus’ ministry, message, death, and resurrection, and how do we know we can trust their witness.
Including questions at the end of each chapter for group discussion or personal reflection, Introducing Jesus makes the words, history, and context of the Gospels come alive for readers.
