The greatest liberator of women is Jesus.

Eve has many firsts.

Eve-The-Bible-Miniseries

Woman
Wife
Mother
First and only woman born without sin
Dressmaker
First mother to a murderer
Eve appeared, she was not born
She was born a perfect and complete woman
Eve was never a child or a daughter
She was the first person ever tempted by Satan
The first sinner
Eve is called, “The Mother of all the Living”

Miriam was the older sister to the “Deliverer” Moses saving him from infant death

Sarah was the founding mother or matriarch of the Tribes of Israel

Rebecca was the wife of Isaac and the first woman to seek God directly for answers to her condition

Esther saved the Jewish nation

Deborah was a prophetess, a judge of wisdom and could be considered the first woman General.

Ruth was the great-grandmother of Israel’s great king, David

Mary, the mother of Jesus. Enough said.

Mary Magdalene was not a prostitute as some have written. She was healed by Jesus and the first person to witness the resurrection. She is called “Apostle to the Apostles” because Jesus told her to go tell the disciples he was alive.

Elizabeth was the mother of John the Baptist and Mary’s cousin.

The Samaritan Woman met Jesus at the well and had the longest recorded conversation with the Messiah.  So taken by his presence she became a true force of spreading the “living water” he told her about.

Wife of Pontius Pilate had a dream and told her husband to have nothing to do with this man named “Jesus.” Of course he didn’t listen and the rest is history.

The woman with the issue of blood touched Jesus garment and was healed. Against all strict law she was forbidden to be in public, much less touch anyone. Yet, Jesus called her “daughter.”

Jesus rescued the woman caught in adultery saving her from immediate death by stoning. He did not condemn her; he told her to “go and sin no more.”mary magdalene

There are other women of the Bible with legacies worth reading.

God is the author of freedom for women. Outspoken, strong and tested these women play a role to follow. They didn’t keep their mouths shut or sit at home eating Twinkies and knitting all day. NO…..they defied man made laws that oppressed them and took great risks for the sake of truth.

So…what did the role of Christianity do for women? And how should we apply it today? to be continued…..

  1. Absolutely love! I am encouraged by the role of these women in the harshest of conditions!! Peace, Love ya!! xxxx

  2. Great thoughts on how Jesus loved on and liberated women who were oppressed in his day. I also love how you continually update your pictures on your heading. It keeps your site looking fresh and new!

    • Thank you so much for the encouraging words. So many women don’t understand the truth of being free in that capacity by bending to rules of society. If they would allow Jesus to do it for them it would be so much easier! I have been without a laptop until now for the last few weeks as the hard drive crashed. It was truly an unpleasant scene! Now I am on my new Dell and love it! As far as my blog site I have debated about changing the entire theme but without a decent laptop now for months it was impossible; and it is a lot of work. Carry on my friends; your work is so important. God is reaching many through you and your family that otherwise wouldn’t know Jesus. Be blessed!
