The Gospel and #MeToo

April 2, 2018

Today’s link is a surprisingly good piece from a mainstream news outlet, “How Easter became a #MeToo moment.

“The Gospels are full of Jesus treating women in a way that would have scandalized his contemporaries. They were his travel companions and primary financial backers. Consider an obscure passage in Luke 8:1-4. It says Jesus and his 12 disciples were accompanied by women: Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Susanna ‘and many others.'”

This piece is worth sharing!
