Defiance: Feminist Lessons from Scripture Today
$340/week. Course fee $90 plus the $250 Activity fee
Too often, “biblical womanhood” has been a term defined by submission and meekness, used to keep women in their place. Jordan Haynie Ware, of podcast Two Feminists Annotate the Bible has found through her studies that this just doesn’t match the Scriptures as written. Rather, the women of Scripture, and God’s interactions with them, have strikingly modern feminist lessons for women, men, and all people. Join her for a week of study on these often ignored, and even intentionally swept aside characters. Men welcome, too!
We’ll learn more about hermeneutics, especially feminist, queer, post-colonial, and other lens on Scripture from marginalized communities, and you’ll leave equipped to practice your discipleship as feminist followers of Jesus.
