Women in the Bible

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE: Galatians 3:28

There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.


Women are mentioned in the Bible 188 times. That’s fewer than men to be sure, but given the cultural aspect of Biblical times, that’s not bad!

More importantly, who were these women? Women like Eve, Sarah, Rachel in the Old Testament… Deborah, a female judge… Ruth, who became an ancestress of Jesus… Esther, who saved the Jewish people…the Blessed Virgin Mary, chosen by God to give birth to our Saviour…

Let’s not forget a woman who didn’t have a name: The Proverbs 31 Woman!

And let’s not forget the woman who were the disciples of Jesus: Mary Magdalene…Mary and her sister Martha…

And the woman who were leaders among the early Christians, even hosting meetings in their homes: Phoebe, Dorcas, Priscilla, and Susanna…

Jesus placed a very high regard on women, and if you ever doubt our importance, consider that it was women who were chosen to be the first at the tomb!
