I’ve been busy these past few weeks and haven’t written anything worth posting, so I thought I’d post links to some of my articles about New Testament women who were church leaders. (This list is updated when I post something new on women church leaders in the New Testament.)
Euodia and Syntyche
Church Leaders in Philippi
Junia in Romans 16:7
Philip’s Prophesying Daughters
Jezebel of Thyatira
Jezebel of Thyatira: A Female False Prophet
Stephanas or Stephana: Man or Woman? (This article looks at the masculinization of Junia’s and Nympha’s names.)
Image: “Fractio Panis” (Breaking Bread), a fresco in the Greek Chapel in the Catacomb of Priscilla in Rome. The fresco depicts seven people at a table, possibly sharing the Eucharist. Dorothy Irvin suggests that all the figures are women (“The Ministry of Women in the Early Church: The Archaeological Evidence“, Duke Divinity School Review 45.2. (1980) 76-86.) The fresco dates from the 2nd or 3rd century.
