Magdalena – Released from Shame

Magdalena, a film made especially for women, beautifully shares God’s love and the gospel, engaging women at the heart level with the potential of changing their lives for eternity.

A story of tenderness, freedom and purpose, it portrays Jesus’ compassion for women and historical accounts of His interactions with them, as seen through the eyes of Mary Magdalene.

Added to digitally enhanced footage from the original 1979 “JESUS” film, “Magdalena” seamlessly weaves the true stories of four biblical women–Mary Magdalene, the Samaritan woman at the well, the woman who touched Jesus’ garment, and the woman caught in adultery–into newly filmed scenes. The film emphasizes Jesus’ compassion for women and His ability to restore their dignity and identity through a personal encounter with Him.

An eight-lesson companion Bible study, “Reflections of Hope,” and additional resources to go with the film are available at
