People's Bible Notes for Luke 8:2


Lu 8:2 And certain women. That these women should attend the footsteps of Christ was opposed to the custom of Palestine. The admixture of the sexes was not common. The rabbis held that the law should not be taught to women. Mary called Magdalene. That is, of Magdala, a village near the Sea of Galilee. This is the first mention of her, and we know nothing more of her preceding history. We know that after this she was one of the most devoted friends of Christ. Seven devils. See PNT "Mt 8:29", on demoniac possession.
