Received this question from a member of our church today about last night’s The Bible series segment (March 24).
We watched the Bible last night. (My husband and I) were discussing Mary with the disciples. I can’t remember that. What passages in the Bible could I find that? (BTW, It was a great day on Sunday!!!)
Great question! I would say that not only were there women traveling with the disciples, but The Bible series didn’t portray enough of the women! There were actually several. Luke 8:1-3.
“After this, Jesus
traveled about from one town and village to another, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom of God. The Twelve were with him, 2
and also some women who had been cured of evil spirits
and diseases: Mary (called Magdalene) from whom seven demons had come out; 3 Joanna the wife of Chuza, the manager of Herod’s household; Susanna; and many others. These women were helping to support them out of their own means.”

Pretty cool what we learn along the way! Let me know if there are any other questions.
