I’ve been busy these past few weeks and haven’t written anything worth posting. So I thought I’d post links to some of my articles about New Testament women who were leaders and ministers. (This list is updated when I post something new on various women church leaders in the New Testament.)
The Chosen Lady
Euodia and Syntyche
“The Co-Elect” Woman
Various NT Women, including the Romans 16 women
Jezebel of Thyatira
Stephanas or Stephana: Man or Woman? (This article looks at the masculinisation of Junia’s, Nympha’s, and Euodia’s names.)
Image: Fractio Panis (“Breaking Bread”), 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.
