A Collection of Articles on NT Women Church Leaders

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.)

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.
