Product Description

Jesus reached across cultural norms by befriending and discipling women throughout his life. The bestselling Women of the Bible: New Testament pamphlet presents portraits of 15 women, some who encountered Jesus personally, and some who served in the early Church. Some women are known by name, like Mary and Martha, while others are known by their situation, such as the "Woman at the Well." This beautiful, 14-panel pamphlet presents key events and stories for the women, plus Scripture references, locations and insights from their stories.

Women of the Bible: New Testament is a concise chart that profiles women whose lives were touched by Jesus, or who served the early Church. Teachers and students alike will enjoy discovering more about the women whose lives were forever changed by Jesus. These women showed great faith and human faults; they were forgiven women, friends, disciples, and leaders in the Church.

Author Bio

Benjamin Galan, MTS, ThM, the award-winning author of the Rose Guide to the Tabernacle, which won the 2009 Christian Retailers'' Choice Award in Bible Reference. He is Adjunct Professor of Hebrew and Old Testament Literature at Fuller Theological Seminary.

Benjamin Galan grew up in a Christian home in Mexico City. During his studies, Galan became enamored with natural sciences. In college, Galan studied physics and mathematics, and grew indifferent and hostile toward the Christian faith. Along with the French mathematician Laplace, Galan believed God was no longer a necessary hypothesis. After additional studies, Galan began to long for deep, satisfying connections and meaning in his young life. Through the moving testimony of a friend in school, Galan began to read the Bible with renewed eyes, and eventually returned to church. As he became more involved in the ministry of his home church, Galan sensed God''s calling. During his theological studies, Galan fell in love with the Old Testament and understood the Old Testament as the key for understanding the New Testament.
