04junAll Day08Leading Ladies of the New Testament

Event Details

Elizabeth Schüssler Fiorenza and other feminist scholars have suggested that Phoebe, Lydia, Priscilla, Junia and other leading ladies of the New Testament were all but ordained ministers and early proponents of the “gospel” of radical egalitarianism. However, a closer look suggests that these particular women were theologically trustworthy and so, for example, would willingly have submitted to the Pauline prohibitions against women speaking publicly in worship (1 Cor. 14:33b-38; 1 Tim. 2:11-14). This course casts new light on how essential women were to the growth of Christianity during the early centuries AD, and how the named women remain paradigmatic to lay and diakonal service yet today.
