Event Details 
Jesus, Women, and Early Christianity
We’ll explore how Jesus interacted with and treated women during his ministry and how they responded. Looking into questions like: What were the cultural norms for women during Jesus’ life? Was Jesus a feminist? What do Paul’s letter to the Romans and John’s Gospel tell us about early women disciples? Then we will discuss women’s roles in the very early Christian communities up to about 300 A.D. The New Testament will be used as well as several other references. There will be time for questions and discussion and some possibly surprising revelations. An outline and list of references will be provided. Over the past 50 years there has been a wealth of academic and research interest in these topics and well over 100 books have been written.
