Women in the New Testament



Was Mary Magdalene a prostitute? Is the story of Martha of Bethany about homemaking? Were the women in Jesus’s genealogy all sexual sinners? Was Junia an apostle or not?

What do you really know about the women in the New Testament?

Often, the stories of the important women in the New Testament are left out of church teaching and Christian books. Or if they are told, they include myths and misperceptions.

In this course, Dr. Lynn Cohick, New Testament Professor and Provost of Northern Seminary, teaches the true stories of women in the Bible. She has written several books on women in the New Testament world and the early church.

Each session examines an aspect of the social and cultural world of the New Testament and explores a biblical woman’s story in relation to her context. The course looks at marriage, at motherhood, at discipleship, at patronage, at teaching, and at leadership as New Testament women live out their callings before God and in the Christian community.

Women studied include:

  • Mary, mother of Jesus
  • Mary Magdalene
  • Mary and Martha of Bethany
  • Phoebe, Junia, Priscilla, Lydia
  • Unnamed women such as the Samaritan woman and Jairus’s daughter.
  • Come along and explore these lesser-known stories of women of faith.
