Women are everywhere in the New Testament. They follow and serve Jesus, seek Him for healing, and play creative and essential roles in the early church. For much of our history, however, their stories have been mediated and interpreted through a male-centric lens. This may mean that you will be surprised when you see what an active and courageous role women played in the days when Jesus and His apostles announced the arrival of the Kingdom of God and the role Jesus continues to invite all of His disciples into today.
In this LifeChange study guide, we will study how Jesus welcomes marginalized and culturally neglected people as disciples, publicly affirms their faith as examples for others, and empowers them to lead and use their gifts. Over the course of 8 sessions, we will learn about . . .
