Episode 59: The Mary with the Cherry, Part 2

This episode covers the second half of chapter 32 of Bible Myths and Their Parallels in Other Religions by TW Doane, as well as the first half of chapter 33.  Chapter 32 talks about the various Mary-like figures in other religions, while chapter 33 covers Christian symbols, such as the cross, which can be found in religions that pre-date Christianity.

Images referenced in the two chapters.
