“Ultimate Love” is a story of legendary Mary Magdalene who was overshadowed by the Love of Jesus. Jesus accepted her just as she was, her sin laden past. She was believed to have been delivered from many demons and/or mental illnesses. Some label her a repentant prostitute, however that label was later removed from her. She was a woman who was not only truly forgiven, she as loved and had a dramatic life change. She became a devout follower of Jesus, extended her love by being a follower of him. One particular event, some belie, she demonstrated her devotion, love and worship by anointing his feet with expensive perfume and with her tears and dried his feet with her hair. Mary Magdalene is one of Jesus most celebrated disciples and some believe to be a women apostle. She had the privilege to witnessing intimate moments of Jesus’ crucifixion and burial, but most of all she was the first person Jesus appeared to after his resurrection. What an honor to women of that day and culture just as it’s an honor for us today. Mary responded to Jesus great Love to her and her life was lived loving and serving her lord.
