I did read up on the Marriage of Cannan at the weekend and I was rather taken aback at how rude Jesus was to his mum - No way would I have got away with that! It just seems out of character. My mind is not made up though - I need more information so all links are appreciated :-)
Now getting onto your comments about women (which is what this thread was about many moons ago) - what is your view on St. Paul on this subject?
Also I watched a rather interesting programme about the Gospel according to Mary Magadalene and two other Gospels (one by Phillip but I can not remember the other one) that did not make it into the Bible. The former was found as a book in a bazaar in Cairo and shows a completely different version of her than what was portrayed later. It seems that the early Church did a bit of a smear job on her and linked her to a prostitute rather than her purely being the sister of Martha. Even more interestingly the Catholic Church appologised for this in 1969. Heaven forbid that Mary might have been an Apostle in her own right!
I am sure you are familiar with this already though but I would love to hear your views.
