When Jesus was on earth, he did nothing to indicate women were second-class citizens. For example, he asked Mary Magdalene, at one of the most critical times in his life, to be the disciple to announce his resurrection. Yet somewhere in history, women have been made to feel like they shouldn’t be pastors or leaders of the church because of their gender.
In You Are Today’s Women of the Bible and I can prove it, author Darci Jeffries shows women are just as much a child of God as anyone, no better than men and no worse than men. Through a variety of Biblical entries and scriptures, she recognizes the important roles women played in the Bible and how today’s women still have significant impact influencing people for God’s kingdom. Jeffries notes the influential female of the Bible such as Jochebed (Moses’ mother), Esther, and Rebekah, and shares how it’s because of those women and the roles they played in Biblical history, that today’s women have the same level of influence.
Inspiring today’s women to achieve all they can, You Are Today’s Women of the Bible and I can prove it seeks to get more women working with others for God’s kingdom and to help them understand how important they are in God’s workplace.
