Lots of women appear in the New Testament. Some are named individuals (Syntyche, Lois, Mary Magdalene); others are not. Some are celebrated disciples (the Samaritan woman), apostles (Junia), deacons, and ministers (Phoebe)--vocal proponents of our faith. Others teach wisdom by example through their actions. We hear about individual women but also groups of women, like the widows of 1 Timothy or the female Corinthian prophets. While most of the women are real, some are figurative (Lady Wisdom; Daughter Zion, the woman clothed with the sun; the whore of Babylon).
How might we encounter Jesus by spending time with some of these characters? What word might they have for ourselves and for our communities? Come renew your acquaintance with or meet these women for the first time! Presented by New Testament Scholar, author, speaker, Rev. Dr. Jaime Clark-Soles, Perkins School of Theology, Professor of New Testament.
