Season 1: Episode 9
Meet the Historical Virgin Mary
Date Aired: 12/16/2022
With Christmas just around the corner, Helen and Dave piece together a picture of the woman who was there from the start—Mary, the mother of Jesus. Betrothed at 12 or 13 to a much older man, what would life have been like for a Galilean peasant woman and mother (and widow, perhaps?) in the 1st century? And what did Mary make of her unusual son and his radical mission?
