Women ARE in Ministry

    I just recently saw a question that asked about a woman’s role in ministry: what is her ministry as a wife and mother and does it change when her husband is in full time ministry? I will attempt to answer those questions from the Scriptures.

Jesus Goes Out of His Way

After Jesus left there, he went to the region of Tyre. (Mark 7:24a)
Then Jesus went out again from the region of Tyre and came through Sidon to the Sea of Galilee in the region of the Decapolis. (Mark 7:31)

Between these two verses is recorded only one event: the healing of the daughter of a Gentile woman. Jesus made a deliberate trip away from the Jewish settlements into a region of mostly Gentiles so that he could encounter a Gentile woman in need. In this simple story we see the Gospel played out.
