"‘Go the extra mile’ is Jesus's call to resist oppression by exceeding expectations, a protest against Roman soldiers' abuse. It's about reclaiming dignity and power. Jesus stands with the oppressed, challenging our Bible interpretations.

Mary Magdalene was not a courtesan, often mixed up with an unnamed 'sinner'. There is confusion between her and Mary of Bethany, who anointed Jesus with her hair. A 'sinful woman' from the city, assumed to be a courtesan, also washed Jesus's feet. Mary Magdalene, cleared of seven demons, is mentioned in various contexts including frequenting Jesus and his disciples. She's often mixed up with other Marys in the Bible.
"The 10 Plagues in Exodus target Egyptian gods, from turning the Nile to blood, casting darkness (like killing sun god Ra), to slaughtering lambs.
