Semester 1 unit | Women’s Authority in the New Testament and Early Church

Semester 1 unit at Trinity College Theological School

Are you keen to learn about women’s leadership and authority in the New Testament? Do you want to know more about Mary Magdalene, Priscilla, Phoebe, Junia and Lydia? Was Paul a misogynist? Did Luke include more women to put them in their place? Or is there a liberating impulse that runs the New Testament text and its theology? If so, here is the place to find out! This is a new and exciting unit that will explore women’s status and authority in the New Testament writings within their social and religious context. It will explore also something of the early church and its complex response to women’s leadership. The unit is taught either face-to-face or online, depending on what suits you. So come and join us this semester!
