Pre-Order Now!"Christ's Emancipation of Women in the New Testament" by Lynne Hilton Wilson
Book Synopsis: Jesus entered a society with many deeply instilled barriers to His teachings. He shocked his audiences with declarations of His Messiahship. Equally as shocking, He appreciated and validated women, children, and servants. As decisively as He cleansed the temple, Jesus attacked the cultural falsehoods that surrounded Jewish family life. He tore down false practices and notions regarding women, children, and family relationships. He denounced centuries of harmful traditions that destroyed marital partnerships and led to misogyny. In order to appreciate the dramatic change that Jesus made to the role of women, this book places Jesus’ teachings in the context of Judeo-Greco-Roman family life of the day.
