Barely covered by a thin layer of soil, the first century city of Magdala is being excavated along the northwest shore of the Sea of Galilee. What does this excavation have to do with Magdala’s most famous resident, Mary Magdalene, the follower of Jesus who was the first to see him after his resurrection? We explore these issues with Steven Notley, the director of Nyack College’s Graduate Program in Ancient Judaism and Christian Origins.
