Wives of Tyre / Daughters of Philip

Daughters of Philip

I’ve got to be honest, although I’m loving learning more about the women in Acts, it’s hard covering them because Luke doesn’t provide us with a lot of details. In fact, many of the women are merely mentioned by name or by a single sentence describing them. Thus is the case of the Daughters of…

Priscilla: A Tent Making Evangelist

Priscilla has always been one of my favorite women in the Bible. She’s a devoted wife, a hard-working hostess, and a bold evangelist. She’s a role model worthy of following. https://radiopublic.com/all-gods-women-WRXXrr/s1!f0f45 Her Story Priscilla is mentioned in four different books of the Bible - Acts, Romans, 1 Corinthians, and 2 Timothy. Each time, her name…

Fortune-telling Damsel: A Soul in Need of a Savior

Whenever we look at Bible women, I try to tell the story from her perspective, putting us in her place. In this week’s episode of All God’s Women, I’m doing something different. We’re looking at the Fortune-telling Damsel from the perspective of Paul. https://radiopublic.com/all-gods-women-WRXXrr/s1!5828c Her Story Last week we talked about Lydia, a woman Paul…

Lydia: God is in the Details

Have you ever been at just the right place at the right time? Maybe you weren’t even supposed to be there, but looking back, you can see how God orchestrated it all in ways you could have never imagined. In today’s episode of All God’s Women, we look at Lydia, a traveling business woman who…

The Other Marys: Serving in the Shadows

We’ve studied Mary the Mother of Jesus, Mary of Bethany, and Mary Magdelene, but there are three other Marys mentioned in the New Testament. Today we look at them. https://radiopublic.com/all-gods-women-WRXXrr/s1!671cf Their Story Two of the other Marys are mothers known by their sons. The first Mary was mother of James the apostle, also known as…

Rhoda: Praying With Expectation

Do you pray with expectation? How do you respond when God answers your prayers? What if you witness a miracle and no one believes you? That’s what happened to Rhoda, a servant girl who prayed but no one else believed. https://radiopublic.com/all-gods-women-WRXXrr/s1!489ef Backstory We meet Rhoda in Acts 12. The chapter opens by letting us know…

Dorcas: A Gifted and Generous Woman

We’ve met many women in the Bible who were wives, mothers, and widows. Their stories usually involve their families. But in today’s episode of All God’s Women Dorcas, also known as Tabitha, stands out because of her friendship and kindness to other women.  https://radiopublic.com/all-gods-women-WRXXrr/s1!c3859 Her Story We find the story of Dorcas in Acts 9.…

Sapphira: A Woman Who Lied To God

After spending five months in the gospels, we are finally leaving them behind and moving into Acts. On today's episode of All God's Women we look at Sapphira, the first woman mentioned by name who was part of the early church. Though her name means beautiful, her actions were not so lovely. https://radiopublic.com/all-gods-women-WRXXrr/s1!a5d76 Backstory We…

Mary Magdelene: First Witness to the Resurrected Christ

Of all the women we've studied thus far, I do believe Mary Magdelene's story may be the most difficult to tell. First, she's extremely misunderstood. Half of what people believe about her isn't even biblical. Then, each gospel writer tells her story in a different way, and it's hard to put them together. But I…

Pilate’s Wife: She Tried to Save Jesus

Last week we looked at Jewish servant girls who got caught up in the fight against Jesus. Today we look at Herod’s wife, a Roman first lady, who spoke out in support of Jesus. https://radiopublic.com/all-gods-women-WRXXrr/s1!0d3f5 Backstory All four gospels recount the events leading up to the crucifixion of Jesus. They each cover the hearing with…
