Women in the New Testament

Posted Jan 31st, 2018 by Julian Johnson  Category: Education


The Lourdes University Lifelong Learning program is pleased to offer a series of classes on , “Women in the New Testament” with instructor Ruthi Mitchell.

Ruthi holds a Master of Arts degree in Theology from Lourdes University with a focus on women in the Church. This class is a unique combination of three of her passions: the Word of God, history and the advancement of women. It is designed to discover the lost voices of women in the Jesus movement/early Church and reconcile them with women of faith in today’s Christian Church.

Join an eight-week study of women in the New Testament. Through prayer, conversation and thoughtful study, explore the faith of these women, their responses to Jesus, how their society shaped and challenged their responses and the meaning of discipleship through their eyes. Study the Scriptures through a feminist lens focusing on the role of women in the early Church. Use the Women in the New Testament Study Set by Mary Ann Getty-Sullivan and Catherine Upchurch in addition to a Bible. The set is available for purchase at the Lourdes Bookstore for $18.

The classes will be held at various Lourdes University classroom locations, 6832 Convent Blvd., in Sylvania, Ohio and will take place on the following Thursdays:

February 1, 8, 15, 22; March 1, 8, 15 and 22 from 1:30 to 3 p.m.

Cost per class: $86 members; $98 non-members
