The seeming insignificance of many of the women mentioned in the New Testament is put to rest in this insightful Bible study, which delves into the many examples of those-such as Anna, Joanna, Susanna, Dorcas, Lydia, Priscilla, Phoebe, and Junia-whose stories show the critical roles they played in helping Jesus in his ministry and in the formation of the church. As you read about these women at work two thousand years ago, you'll find that in many cases their issues are still issues for us today. How they handled their work life may help us manage ours in ways that bring honor to God and joy to us in the midst of our work.
This Bible study is part of The Bible and Your Work Study Series. Each book contains Scripture references, thought-provoking questions, and prayers to help you explore what the Bible says about work and apply it to your life in positive, practical ways. The lessons in each chapter are designed for thirty-minute lunch breaks, although they can be used in other formats as well.
The Theology of Work Project is a resource to help you apply the Scriptures and Christian faith to your work. It includes wisdom from over 140 contributors from sixteen countries who attest that although we often find ourselves frustrated, exploited, or underappreciated as we work, God didn't intend it to be toilsome. So what was God's original plan for work? How do we claim our divine calling to work? Why does your work matter to God? By exploring the topic from Genesis to Revelation, we see a theology of work that shows us how to support ourselves, serve others, and find value in our vocations.
