Do not judge and you will not be judged.
Forgive and you will be forgiven.
Give and it will be given to you.
Luke 6: 37-38

Happy women's day!

Women are valid witnesses to Christ. The idea of women as primary witnesses does not seem unusual to people in the 21st century, but it was a revolutionary concept at the time. The testimony of women was not given the same weight as men's, either personally or in a court of law. Mary's witness to the Resurrection reversed this idea. I'd say that Jesus-Christ is the first feminist ever!
The status of women in early Christianity was equal to men's. When the Christian stories described Mary Magdalene and the other women as the first witnesses of the Resurrection, they were saying something important about the nature of women: that they were capable of being as fully Christian as men.

 Mary Magdalene as a disciple of Jesus
1 Soon afterward he went on through cities and villages, preaching and bringing the good news of the kingdom of God. And the twelve were with him,2 and also some women who had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities: Mary, called Mag'dalene, from whom seven demons had gone out,3 and Joan'na, the wife of Chuza, Herod's steward, and Susanna, and many others, who provided for them out of their means. Luke 8:1-3

She was present at Jesus'crucifixion
40 There were also women looking on from afar, among whom were Mary Mag'dalene, and Mary the mother of James the younger and of Joses, and Salo'me,41 who, when he was in Galilee, followed him, and ministered to him; and also many other women who came up with him to Jerusalem. Mark 15:40-41

25 So the soldiers did this. But standing by the cross of Jesus were his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Mag'dalene. John 19:25


Witnesses identified Jesus’ mother Mary, along with close friends Mary Magdalene and Mary the wife of Cleophas, who were at the crucifixion site, also known as Calvary. They were seen beginning a vigil at the tomb.
I was pleased to find a website that describes women in the bible websiste  
Note: However whereby they dispute the authenticity of the writing in the Old Testament I disagree as I believe that the Bible is the word of God.

About Me

My photo

I was born in France and brought up as a catholic. After the traumatic divorce of my parents, I moved to England and became a lost sheep. However I was convinced that I was 'a good person' until I fell in a muddy pit in July 2005 after taking decisions without seeking God's Word for guidance.  I cried out to the Lord and He heard me. I was rescued and redeemed by Jesus-Christ my saviour. He has turned my life around. 
I live blissfully with my husband Steven,  a c.o.e. vicar, near Stafford (UK). We are the proud parents of three loving daughters, I am also a step-mum, I have an amazing family including a step mum, two brothers and two sister and a dear sister-in-law and her children and grand-children, lots of cousins and eleven nephews and nieces. We live near Stafford in the UK.
