The Man Who Was Different Jesus' Encounters With Women
The Man Who Was Different Jesus' Encounters With Women Author:Gien Karssen Long before women were given the right to vote or allowed to work outside the home, there was a Man who knew them as they wished to be known. And loved them as they longed to be loved. — Gien Karssen's striking observations of Jesus will surprise you with the risks He takes to know and love women like these: — Mary of Bethany: "progressive, li... more »berated, and assertive. She considers herself simply a common woman witha hunger for God, someone who doesn't want to miss possibilites within her reach."
Martha, her sister: "She loses sight of priorities, for which the Lord has to correct her. But Martha's reaction is also a proof of her trust. Jesus is someone to whom she can candidly speak her mind."
The woman at the well: "Here is a woman completely at ease in Jesus' presence, who dares to be herself. Nowhere do we see that the Lord disapproves of or reproves such a frank approach."
Mary Magdalene: "Jesus sees the desire she shares with every woman: to be taken seriously and to shoulder responsibility. After her healing, she is able to face problems others run away from."« less
