But Jesus's social revolution was to "let go" materially and join in a common sharing of the world. Not communism or socialism as both of those philosphies still have "ownership of stuff." Mary Magdelene's journey of the soul is about the soul "letting go" and travelling to join a commonality of souls.
pat robertson and jerry falwell don't like this stuff (-:
There is simply very little mention of Mary Magdalene at all in the gospels. There is certainly not enough to warrant the development of a universal soul idea anywhere in that information.
