What was it like to be a woman in the world of the New Testament? What can we learn from the Savior’s interaction with women? In this inspiring new talk, popular speaker and teacher Mary Jane Woodger sheds fascinating light on the historical, cultural, and political standing of women of Bible times. Drawing from the lives of Christ’s mother Mary, Elizabeth, Mary and Martha, Mary Magdalene, the woman with an issue of blood, the Canaanite woman, and the widow at the temple, Sister Woodger shares insights into the Savior’s tender feelings toward women. “The Lord knows each of His spiritually begotten daughters and sons by our given names,” says Sister Woodger. “What a miracle it is when we realize that He knows us on such a personal level. It is we that have to become familiar enough with Him so that, as Mary, we will recognize His voice.”
