One Who Was There
Mary Magdalene's past experience helps her face an uncertain future. Noted actress Maureen O'Sullivan portrays Mary Magdalene travelling from Jerusalem to Galilee in AD 64. This lonely survivor is one of the few left who saw Jesus arrested and crucified. The passage of time has left her haunted by memories of death. Her spiritual strength and faith have eroded and are overshadowed by despair. This fascinating woman is touched and transformed by the discoveries of her journey. The people she meets and present realities dredge up past memories. Her despair is challenged by the spiritual faith of a new generation of believers who celebrate the Lord's living presence. Others who question or deny the validity of the faith force her to relive the events she experienced as a younger woman. She is strengthened and reassured as she joins her life to others. Her past, present and future come together as she relives the powerful moment of Jesus' resurrection. She who was among the first to see the risen Lord finds a surge of new life and a renewal of faith. What began as a journey of despair ends with her return to serve the living God.
