Enjoying so far, but thought I should pause and share some early thoughts.
For one, I've never doubted that women played very significant roles in early Christianity, and at times the Mary's we know assume more heroic positions than the men.
The take on Magdalene is thought provoking, but now I wonder where it became accepted that she had been a prostitute if it wasn't mentioned in the four cannons? Is there other comment elsewhere in the NT?
The women in this video are to be applauded for zeroing in on some women financing Jesus' itinerant operation, but their pretty strong suggestion that women financed the whole 'she'bang, strikes me as overplayed, at the halfway point, and recalls, to me, Joseph of Arimathia, who would be at least one male financier. Then there's the whole mater of Judas being the money guy, which I think implies that the core group was also gathering donations as they roamed about.
What I'm really thinking about as I view on, is the sociology of the times and how that might have influenced both genders' roles. The ladies observations are certainly expanding that topic.
More later, thanks.
