Abstract: The aim of this article is to give a comprehensive exegetical analysis of the presentation of Mary Magdalene in the four gospels. Our redaction-critical study focuses on the diverse presentations of Mary Magdalene as a follower, a witness, a care-giver/provider, someone who is cured of demons and as a witness of the first resurrection appearance. We provide a synopsis of all the passages in the NT where Mary Magdalene is mentioned (in Greek and in English) to assist the reader in verifying the similarities and the differences between the versions of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Using redaction-critical, literary-critical and feminist-critical methods, we try to uncover the reasons why the four evangelists each develop their own image of Mary Magdalene.
