ON THIS EPISODE
From whether we should ordain women to whether they should ever be on a Sunday morning platform, there’s a lot of debate in the Church today about what a woman can and can’t do in Christian leadership. And that’s been the case for a long time.
The bible has a lot to say about the role of women in the Church, but how to understand those verses is often highly contested. We discuss all that in a previous episode of the podcast.
So on this episode, rather than diving into a theological discussion about complementarity and egalitarianism, we’re going to take a look at the women leaders we meet in the New Testament. What did they do? What were their contributions to the early church? What was their legacy?
This is a fun conversation, where we talk about some really well known New Testament women, as well as a few that you may not have heard about. In our discussion, we explore the lives and leadership of the following New Testament women.
- Mary, the mother of Jesus
- Mary and Martha of Bethany
- Mary Magdalene
- Lois and Eunice
- Euodia and Syntche
