The women

Character sheet of Jesus' women disciples.

Just done in pencil, as this actual picture won't be used - it's just a reference for me. Like the men, I have based them on what we actually know about them, what we can  guess from what we know - and a great deal of imagination.

I'm assuming Mary Magdalene is Martha's sister Mary. There are arguments both for and against, but in the end I had to make a decision, and those two Marys seem similar in character. I'm assuming 'the other Mary' is both Mary the wife of Cleopas and the mother of James & Joses. And I'm assuming Salome is James & John's mother.
