Very often in our everyday life we, consciously or unconsciously, use ideas and expressions which are biblical, but do we know the meaning and significance of these invaluable words? Aren’t we using them inappropriately, out of place? The show “Reflections” touches upon these issues.
The source of this expression is the Bible and it is mostly used in the West. Jesus drove seven evil spirits out of a woman named Mary. After that she became a disciple of Christ and His faithful follower, and was present at His crucifixion and funeral. Mary Magdalene was one of the three women that bought incense and went to the tomb to anoint Christ's body with, and to whom the angel announced the good news of the resurrection. She was the first who saw resurrected Jesus. The word Magdalene indicates her birthplace Magdala.
