The Women Jesus Loved

Some were full of moral failure. Some were full of shame and had given up hope. Others were grieving or troubled by life, but all had one experience in common – after they met Jesus, they were never the same.

What is The Women Jesus Loved

The Women Jesus Loved is ten stories from the Gospels in which Jesus interacted with women. They are part of Jonathan’s storytelling collection from his weekly radio program, Stories of the Master, a dramatic retelling of the life of Christ that weaves in historical and cultural details which Westerners often miss, but details which make the stories come alive.

Why This Book Was Written

TWJL_Front_small_100x150“Women suffer horribly in the world, simply because they are women and often find themselves in vulnerable, unprotected places. Most religions and their leaders treat women as second class citizens at best, and as property or objects of pleasure at worst. Jesus stands apart. He loved women with the liberating love of God as no other. I want my book to show the world how Jesus treated women. My hope is that women will discover his grace and that God will use this book to help alleviate the suffering of women in the world.” – Jonathan Williams

The Woman Who Wept at Jesus' Feet

Jesus has gone to the house of Simon the Pharisee, but upon his entrance he is insulted by not being given water for his feet, a customary kiss of greeting, and anointing oil for his head. A woman in the crowd watching the lunch is appalled by this public insult and takes matters into her own hands to give the honor to Jesus that he deserves.

The Bleeding Woman and the Dying Daughter

Jesus arrives in a village and the synagogue leader, Jairus, immediately asks him to hurry to his home to heal his daughter who is at the point of death.

Again Jesus tries to get away for some time alone and for refreshment. He leaves the borders of Israel and travels to Phoenicia, but even here he cannot escape notice. A woman finds him and loudly cries for help for her daughter who is afflicted with an evil spirit.

The Thirsty Woman - Part 1

Jesus has left Jerusalem and is making His way north to Galilee. But instead of travelling on the east side of the Jordan River to avoid Samaria, He travels right through the province and at a well near the village of Sychar enters into a discussion with a Samaritan woman that would reveal the depths of her heart and change her life forever.

The Thirsty Woman Part - 2

The woman of Sychar has never talked with anyone like Jesus, and when their conversation enters a critical moment, He reveals His identity to her. She runs to the village to tell the men that she thinks Messiah has come. The ensuing conversation between Jesus and the villagers becomes a turning point in their history.

The Widow Who Would Not Be Silenced

Caught in the Act of Sin

Jesus is teaching in the Temple when the religious leaders bring a woman to him. They have caught her in the act of adultery! They tell Jesus, the great forgiver of sins, that the Law demands that she be put to death for her sin. If he forgives her, he is not following the Law. If he condemns her, he is compromising his message of forgiveness. What will he do?

The Grieving Sisters of Bethany

The beloved brother of Martha and Mary is taken ill. The sisters send word to Jesus to come heal him but Jesus arrives late and Lazarus is already dead. What will Jesus do?

Leave Her Alone!
