Have you ever recognised the fact that there are many stories in the Scriptures where the central character is a woman. There are two Old Testament books called Ruth and Esther whose main story are about women…and every time we read those books – we are in fact being taught by their story.
Even in the NT we are faced with the fact that many women are central characters within the NT corpus. We read the history of how Jesus interacted with them and they engaged in society. We read stories of female evangelists going into towns / villages and telling the inhabitants about Christ and what he had done for them.
We read the account of how two women went to the tomb where Jesus had been laid and found it was empty and met the resurrected Jesus nearby. Here we come face to face with the fact that it was these two women who started the early church. It was these women who went and shared the good news of the risen Christ. They went and told the other disciples who at first were shocked and full of disbelief…until Jesus also appeared to them also.
In fact this story must counteract what some believe Paul is later saying about Eve being the one who was deceived; for here we see the beginning of a new age where it is the women who are not deceived.
Finally one has to go Duh!! and realise that by default; every time we read the Bible we are in fact being taught by women….so really – what is the problem?
