Overview

The Women of the Gospels: Missionaries of God's Love by Mary Ann Getty-Sullivan The Gospels portray women as significant and influential members of Jesus' followers. This Bible study presents six examples of women in the Gospels: Elizabeth, Mary's cousin and the mother of John the Baptist; Anna the prophetess who saw the baby Jesus in the Temple; the women who followed Jesus from Galilee;the mother of the sons of Zebedee; the Samaritan woman at the well; and Mary of Bethany. These women encountered Jesus, were transformed by him, and then spread his message of love. As disciples, they all have something to teach us about how to follow Jesus in our own day. Each session provides: the full Scripture text and short commentary, questions for reflection and discussion, "in the spotlight" sections featuring wisdom from the saints and the Church, root meanings of Greek words, and fascinating historical background. Mary Ann Getty-Sullivan, S.T.D. is a popular lecturer and teacher who taught theology in colleges and seminaries for more than forty years. She has a doctorate in sacred theology from the Catholic University of Louvain in Belgium and is the author of more then 10 books.
