Expecting the Unexpected: Women's Surprising Interactions with Jesus

The Gospels are full of stories about Jesus' interactions with everyday people. He gave hope to the poor, the sick, the disabled, and the disenfranchised of all kinds of people?including the women. Although some taught that women were not to be seen or heard, Jesus disagreed. He gave women purpose, status, and validity. After years of being ignored and marginalized, they could find an inexpressible joy. They could discover a place to serve and embrace a deeper, fuller meaning in their lives.

"Through His interactions with women, He showed women how they should value themselves. He served as an example for men how they should treat women. He paved the way for the loving, yet pure brother/sister relationships in Christ that we can enjoy in the church today. How blessed we are that He came to save each one of us when the time was right!"

Join Nancy Eichman as she shows readers that they have those same opportunities today. Jesus still calls women to experience the same purposes and to find joy far beyond what you've come to know or even expect.
