Throughout Christian history, the Bible has been interpreted and taught by men who held negative stereotypes of women and all too often viewed the sacred texts through the lens of misogyny. Many considered woman a “misbegotten male,” morally inferior to men and lacking the ability to reason. This two-part workshop will examine the Bible from the perspective that woman and man are equal in their humanity and their capacities and in the sight of God. On July 20 we will explore the stories of Eve, the women in the book of Exodus, Deborah, and Mary the mother of Jesus in the Synoptic gospels.
