There is this rumor going around that the idea of women in ministry and leadership isn't biblical. Quite to the contrary, women play all the same roles in Scripture as men save one - and Jesus is the only one who has truly fulfilled that one.

Join me on a whirlwind tour through Scripture as we meet Deborah the judge, prophetess, and supreme leader of Israel. We'll meet Huldah, whom the high priest needed to sort out Scripture for him. We'll meet Priscilla who discipled Apollos, Junia the apostle of Jesus, and Phoebe the deacon of the church at Cenchrea.

We'll also learn that Paul, far from being a woman hater, had women co-minister with him throughout his ministry. In the words of Inigo Montoya, "You keep-a mentioning 1 Timothy 2:12. I do not-a think it means what you think it means."
