Who is the Real Mary Magdalene?

Who actually is Mary Magdelene? 

Do you go by the DaVinci Code (she’s disguised in the Last Supper painting!), The Last Temptation of Christ, (she’s his first wife!), Pope Gregory I (she’s the prostitute elsewhere mentioned in the gospels!), or the tradition of the Catholic Church (she’s the “Apostle to the Apostles”)?

Apparently there’s some confusion. 

The real answer won’t feed our drama-hungry hearts. But if you look more closely at this important woman, you’ll understand Jesus better.
