Did you know that 200,000 Nepali women and girls have been kidnapped or sold by destitute parents into India’s brothels and 12-14,000 more are trafficked each year? Why does the world treat women and little girls this way? The world is desperately in need of a fresh look at Jesus’ treatment of women. The Women Jesus Loved is one such look.
Chapter One tells the story of “The Woman Who Wept at His Feet” and it begins this way:
She stood at the edge of the crowd. She had heard about Jesus, his miracles and his teaching, and she desperately wanted to see and hear him. She had so much she needed to say, so much to tell about her life, and so many questions to ask, but what chance did she have of ever getting close enough to talk with him and have him speak personally to her? And if she did, what would she say? More importantly, what would Jesus say to her for the way she had lived?
Listen to Stories of The Master episode “The Women Who Wept at His Feet”
Shame, sin, revulsion, guilt, hopelessness, and mercy. You can read her story in its entirety and other stories in our newest book, The Women Jesus Loved – an imaginative and biblically-based exploration of familiar stories in the New Testament where Jesus interacted with women.
Here is what one reader has said:
The Women Jesus Loved drew on my heart strings like no other. I was drawn into each woman’s struggle, desperation, and plight that in many ways is still being fought today. Each story was told with such detail and emotion, a story of the faith of women and how their faith moved Jesus, the real Jesus, the one who loved and still loves and cherishes women. Jesus’ compassion for women is just as stunning today as it was 2000 years ago! Thank you, Jonathan, for sharing this truth with us!
