I’ve been busy these past few weeks and haven’t written anything new worth posting. So I thought I’d post links to some of my older articles about New Testament women who were leaders and ministers in their churches. (This list is updated whenever I post something new on these women.)

Image: Fractio Panis (“Breaking Bread”) is a 2nd or 3rd-century fresco in the Greek Chapel in the Catacomb of Priscilla in Rome. The fresco depicts seven people at a table. It has been suggested they are sharing a Eucharist meal; however, it is more likely they are sharing a funerary banquet. Dorothy Irvin suggests that all the figures are women. “The Ministry of Women in the Early Church: The Archaeological Evidence,“ Duke Divinity School Review 45.2. (1980): 76-86.
