So many times in the gospels, you see a woman who is important in the life of Jesus and her name is called Mary.
a). When he came out of a belly, the first woman that saw him was Mary his mother
b). When he came out of the belly of the earth, the first woman that saw him was Mary Magdalene.
- Mary the mother of Jesus
- Mary Magdalene
- Mary the mother of James the less, Joses and Salome
- Mary the sister of Martha
- Mary the wife of Cleopas
- The other Mary (Matthew 28:1)
Based on the meaning of the name Mary (Miriam in hebrew), is there a deeper meaning to explain why important women in Jesus's ministry would bear this name ?
