Women of Faith in the Gospel of Luke & Acts, 2/2, 2/9, and 2/16
Luke’s gospel tells more stories about women than the other gospels, but women’s place in Luke and Acts warrants a suspicious feminist eye. In Luke, Mary Magdalene acquires seven demons, Mary of Bethany listens without speaking, Martha is too hospitable. When Jesus straightens up the bent-over woman and forgives the woman who wipes his feet with her tears, their stories become all about the men who discuss their legality.
What place do women have in the early Christian communities? What about the women who labor with Paul as coworkers, deacons, and apostles in his missionary world? How do these sacred canonical texts contribute to claiming equal place for women in our churches today?
