Show Notes

Jesus came to earth not primarily as a male but as a person. He treated women not primarily as females but as human beings. Today’s top ten list spotlights ten women in Jesus’ life: Mary, his mother; Elizabeth, Mary’s cousin; Anna the prophetess; Mary Magdalene; Joanna, wife of Chuza; Mary and Martha of Bethany; Mary, wife of Clopas; Salome, mother of James and John; a woman with an issue of blood; and a woman with a demon-possessed daughter. From these examples we learn about the value God places on women and the ways in which we ought to engage with Jesus.

Episode 397: A Canon for the Church

The earliest known complete list of the 27 books of the New Testament is found in a letter written by Athanasius, a 4th-century bishop of Alexandria, dated to AD 367. The 27-book New Testament was formally canonized during the councils of Hippo (in AD 393) and Carthage (in AD 397) in North Africa. Pope Innocent I ratified the same canon in AD 405. Whether any official church councils certified lists at earlier dates has been the subject of some debate. But the books of the New Testament have been accepted and settled as canonical for most of the time that the church has been established in the period following Roman persecution.   The New Testament includes stories, historical accounts, genealogy, poetry, allegories, letters, and so much more.  For today’s top ten list, we share “Ten Quick Facts about the Structure of the New Testament.”   Scriptures referenced include Colossians 4:16; James 1:1; 1 Peter 1:1; 3 John; 2 John; Luke 1; Revelation 15; John 11:35; and Revelation 20:4. ...
