Mark continued the series, Devotions from the Life of Jesus #16 with a focus on Jesus’s interaction with women. Much of the misinterpretation of how Jesus and other New Testament writers considered women is due to cultural barriers of ancient times vs. today. Jesus came to make a difference for all men and women. In Luke 10:38-42, we read about Mary and Martha. Jesus gave women a place in the classroom of biblical teachings. God’s word was not for men only. John 11:21-27 shows Martha understood Jesus' teachings. Matthew 21:14-16 raises the status of children, another cultural difference then vs. now. John 19:25-27 speaks about honoring our parents and those in our care. Luke 21:1-4 tells us about the widow’s sacrifice. Listen to Mark explain how Jesus honored women, and how we are to desire God’s substance in our lives.
