New discoveries at Magdala suggest Mary Magdalene might not have been a "woman of the night" but rather an influential and wealthy woman.  For example, in the first century, well known people were often called by the name of their hometown.  That appears to be the case of Mary Magdalene.  Some scholars also believe Mary Magdalene could have been a rich widow since she supported the ministry of Jesus.  In Luke 8:3 it names her first among the women who cared for Jesus out of their own means.
