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
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.
