The Women In Jesus’ Life: A Wasteful Woman

HOW MUCH DID SHE SPEND?  I recently heard someone ask that question about a pair of tickets to an Ottawa Senators hockey game.  Yikes!  But the individual didn’t bat an eye. Loved the game.  Loved the team.  Spent the cash.  And considered it WELL worth while.  Love isn’t really interested […]

The Women In Jesus’ Life: His Patrons

Jesus was unlike any other Rabbi of his time.  Why?  Among other reasons – women were part of his entourage.  Not just hanging out at the back of the pack, but his patrons.  Their contributions made his travelling ministry possible.  So says Luke 8:1-3.  As I read and thought about […]

The Women In Jesus’ Life: An Adultress… Q&A feedback

Last week’s teaching from John 8 got a few of you thinking, and digging into your bibles. Which is SO awesome!  What we do together on Sunday is good and all…. but just the beginning.  There’s always more. Always deeper riches in God’s Word to be explored and treasured. THANKS […]

The Women In Jesus’ Life: An Adultress

We read about them all the time – honor killings.  Horrible.  A woman’s life is savagely sacrificed – why?  To make a point.  Or for a cause.  She’s just a pawn in a game that’s far bigger than her.  She doesn’t matter. Jesus got caught up in a situation something […]

The Women In Jesus’ Life: A Mother-in-Law

We only meet her once.  We’re never told her name.  And she never says a thing – not one word.  It’s Simon’s mother-in-law. Oh, it’s good – all good.  You need to know that up front, given how so many mother-in-law conversations end up being bad jokes.  No joke here at […]

The Women In Jesus’ Life: Anna

Anna – WHO? Yes, Anna. She was, you see, one of the divinely appointed welcoming committee for Jesus when he was first carried into the Temple.  And, as such, was also one of the legal witnesses to announce that – yes, indeed – this little baby would become the Saviour […]
