    In the New Testament there is a strange combination of two Mary's: one (Magdalene) is a sinner (presum. a prostitute) who became an ardent and most beloved student of Yeshu Nazorean, the other is his mother, a perpetual virgin whose questionable pregnancy was a mather of some contention. According to Talmud (Shab. 104b) the mother of Ben-Stada (Jesus) was called Miriam Megadla Sear Neshaya (a wig maker). Is it possible that this Miriam is called Magdalene, and is the mother of Jesus, but in the Christian collective memory the Mother could not be a sinner, so they became two Mary's: one the holy mother, the other one a repenting sinner? This would explain why according to some apocrypha Jesus kissed Magdalene on her lips and loved her more than his disciples.
