Recently “why Christians need feminism” seems to be a trending blog topic.
Huffington Post Religion’s Eliel Cruz offers “11 Reasons . . .,” and no matter how many of the other posts on this topic you have read, Eliel’s might be worth your time. With a little history, a little theology, a little culture, a little patriarchy, a little sexism, and a little Scripture, he provides a good overall view of the theme, even for those of us who don’t need any convincing.
I do question the assertions that the woman caught in adultery and the woman who who washed Jesus’ feet with her hair were Mary Magdalene, although I have heard that many times. If you can provide the needed reference/evidence please feel free to do so by commenting on this post.
