Remember JESUS CHRIST our LORD and SAVIOR is the LAMB of GOD who takes away the sins of this world. He is full of sin of the people even not yet born and if Mary Magdalene is to touch Him, she would contain it in herself, remember sin can be passed by touching or laying on of hands.

And see to it that you copy [exactly] their pattern which was shown you on the mountain.
