$ Biblical Faith Regarding Women (BeADisciple.com)
August 22, 2022 All day
Women in the church have both needs and interests as well as gifts and abilities. While they might experience those in different ways due to a variety of cultural circumstances, that foundation is recognizable across the differences. Local congregations can create space for understanding and living out women’s experiences in ways that meet their needs and empower their abilities!
In the scriptural foundation for this certificate program, we will look at the stories and roles of women in scripture. We’ll also take a look at how those roles might have changed through the biblical millennia and think about why that might have been. And finally, we’ll see if those roles relate to the roles of women today!
Students are required to have the following book for this class:
- Reading the Women of the Bible: A New Interpretation of Their Stories, Tikva Frymer-Kensky
- Back to the Well: Women’s Encounters with Jesus in the Gospels, by Frances Taylor Gench
The instructor will offer an optional Zoom meeting for discussion and record the session for those who cannot attend.
This course is eligible for 3.0 CEU.
