Jesus and Female Disciples

Here is a blog on women disciples I recently posted on the Laidlaw website, a result of working through Matthew over summer

"As is well known, an ongoing debate in Christianity is whether women could be disciples at the time of Christ."

Well known?

I'm a complementarian, and it has never occurred to me that women weren't included among the early disciples of Jesus. In fact, I've never even heard of that argument before.

(By the way, you need to correct the reference to Acts 9:26, it's actually 9:36).

I could be wrong, but it seems you are arguing against a straw man. The issue isn't whether women were considered disciples or exercised various forms of ministry in the early church.

The issue in 1 Cor 14, and 1 Tim 2, is completely different, and therefore to conflate these issues in your opening paragraph clouds the debate.

more information about the issue and found most people will
go along with your views on this web site.

Hi there this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG
editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I'm not sure why but this site is loading very slow for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a problem on my end? I'll check back later and see if the problem still exists.
