 Our Description


The Women of the Gospels: Missionaries of God's Love by Mary Ann Getty-Sullivan

The Gospels portray women as significant and influential members of Jesus' followers. This Bible study presents six examples of women in the Gospels: Elizabeth, Mary's cousin and the mother of John the Baptist; Anna the prophetess who saw the baby Jesus in the Temple; the women who followed Jesus from Galilee;the mother of the sons of Zebedee; the Samaritan woman at the well; and Mary of Bethany. These women encountered Jesus, were transformed by him, and then spread his message of love. As disciples, they all have something to teach us about how to follow Jesus in our own day.

Each session provides: the full Scripture text and short commentary, questions for reflection and discussion, "in the spotlight" sections featuring wisdom from the saints and the Church, root meanings of Greek words, and fascinating historical background.

Mary Ann Getty-Sullivan, S.T.D. is a popular lecturer and teacher who taught theology in colleges and seminaries for more than forty years. She has a doctorate in sacred theology from the Catholic University of Louvain in Belgium and is the author of more then 10 books.

This item received 5 stars overall. Amazing women of the Bible speak to us with hope, prayer and amazing faith!!

The Women of the Gospels, Missionaries of God’s Love, by Mary Ann Getty-Sullivan is a great resource for small group discussions. I have always been fascinated by the women in the time of Jesus’s earthly life, and this book brings out some very interesting facts about a few of the lesser mentioned ladies in the Gospels. Published by one of my favorite companies, “The Word Among Us” in 2010 and written by Mary Ann Getty-Sullivan, this delight highlights five women and one group of women whose roles were rather small in context, but powerful spiritually. She also brings to the reader’s attention that though the Bible was primarily written by men, the women of the Bible were treated with such r Full Review...

Profile
    Cousin of Jesus Christ. Son of Zachary, a priest of the order of Abia whose job in the temple was to burn incense; and of Elizabeth, a descendent of Aaron. As Zachary was ministering in the Temple, an angel brought him news that Elizabeth would bear a child filled with the Holy Spirit from the moment of his birth. Zachary doubted and was struck dumb until John's birth.

    Prophet. Began his ministry around age 27, wearing a leather belt and a tunic of camel hair, living off locusts and wild honey, and preaching a message of repentance to the people of Jerusalem. He converted many, and prepared the way for the coming of Jesus. Baptized Christ, after which he stepped away and told his disciples to follow Jesus.

    Imprisoned by King Herod. He died a victim of the vengeance of a jealous woman; he was beheaded, and his head brought to her on a platter. Saint Jerome says Herodias kept the head for a long time after, occassionally stabbing the tongue with his dagger.
