How seven demons came to enter Mary Magdalene is unknown. But how they left her, the Gospels make clear.
Jesus drove them out (Luke 8:2).
Mary’s deliverance from demonic possession no doubt ignited her devotion to the ministry of Jesus.
Along with other women Jesus healed, Mary followed the Lord and supported His ministry from her personal financial means (Luke 8:2–3).
As one of Christ’s followers, Mary heard what the disciples heard. She saw the miracles. She ate the bread He multiplied.
She accompanied Him to the feasts in Jerusalem—including the final Passover when the Jewish leaders arrested Jesus and condemned Him to death.
During the Lord’s agonizing hours on the cross, Mary Magdalene and a few others stood nearby (John 19:25). She watched as Joseph of Arimathea took Jesus’s body down from the cross, wrapped His corpse in linen, and laid it in his own tomb (Matthew 27:55–61).
Yet with all of Mary’s devotion to the Lord, even she didn’t expect what would happen next.
