Women in the Bible

Women in the Bible


Did you know that there are 189 women mentioned in the Bible?  Fear not, Father Jim Kane will not speak about all of them!  However, he will share with us about the Matriarchs of the Hebrew Scriptures (Old Testament), the women who have books named after them:  Ruth, Esther, Judith, Moses’ sister, Miriam, and the other 6 women prophets.  From the New Testament, he will share about Mary, Mother of God, Mary Magdalene, Jesus’ friends; Martha and Mary, early women deacons, and other Church leaders.  Take-home handouts will include a list of the 189 women, with scripture references and prayer services related to women in the Bible.

Cost: $45 brown bag lunch
