INTRODUCTION TO THE BIBLE

The women of the Bible

From Christ Jesus' time through the first century

The women who knew Jesus and in some cases helped start the early Christian Church are included in some of the most exciting stories in the Bible. We need to keep a few things in mind, though, as we read about them. First, we should avoid judging them according to our modern views of women. We get a more accurate picture of these women by trying to understand what they said and did in their time.

It's also important to remember that we don't hear from these women in their own voices. Rather, we see them through men's eyes. Men usually ruled in public life and were considered to be the head of the household. This was the way society worked then.
