Thierry Murcia is a Doctor of History (Very Honorable Mention with Congratulations from the Jury) and a specialist in ancient Judaism and early Christianity. A special mention was awarded to him in 2014 by the Jury of the Francophone Thesis Prize in Jewish Studies for his thesis entitled "Jesus in Talmudic Literature". Professor of Literature-History in secondary school, he is also an associate member of the Paul-Albert Février Center (Research laboratory located at the MMSH of Aix-en-Provence and dependent on the University of Provence). He is the author of a dozen books (six books, two pamphlets, a dictionary) and about twenty contributions (chapters of academic works) and articles published in renowned scientific journals (Revue des études juives, Revue biblique, Judaïsme ancien / Ancient Judaism...). In 2016, he collaborated on the volume devoted to "First Christian Writings" published in the Bibliothèque de la Pléiade. His three main works are: - "Jésus, les miracles élucidés par la médecine", Carnot, Paris, 2003, 280 pages. - "Jesus in the Talmud and Ancient Rabbinic Literature", Brepols, Turnhout, 2014, 810 pages. - "Mary called the Magdalene. Entre Traditions et Histoire : Ier-VIIIe siècle", Presses Universitaires de Provence, Aix-en-Provence, 2017, 420 pages. His book on "Jesus in the Talmud", which has already been the subject of about fifteen reviews in French and English, is now considered an essential reference by specialists in these questions. He is currently preparing a book on the true identity of the "beloved disciple": an enigmatic character to whom we owe the writing of the Gospel attributed to John and who, according to Thierry Murcia, is not the apostle John...

A brief recap of my theory for those new to this blog…

  • There were queens and princesses in Judea in the time of Jesus.
  • They were of the Jewish royal house, the House of the Hasmoneans, the Maccabees who had ruled since about 160’s B.C.
  • Mariamne I, the Great (Hasmonean) Queen, was married in a political alliance to Herod so the Roman-backed procurator could carry the title of King of the Jews.
  • Mariamne was a dynastic name of royal women in Judea during Jesus lifetime.
  • Herod had Mariamne I killed but built for her a grand tower on his new palace wall and called it Mariamne Tower...the word for “tower” is “magadan” or “magdal”.
  • One of the granddaughters of Mariamne I was Mariamne III…She may well have been called the Magdalene. Mariamne Magdalene meaning she was of the “tower” lineage of the Great Queen. Another meaning for “magdal” is “great.”  So…Mariamne I the “great queen” could also have been called Mariamne the Magdalene.
