Rev. Lizzie Robbins Easter Reflection at Our Little Roses
As we approach Easter, it is essential to reflect on women’s central role in the life and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Rev. Lizzie Robbins recently shared her thoughts on this topic, highlighting the double standard that has historically been placed on women and the significance of female disciples in Jesus’ ministry.
One of the most notable examples of the double standard can be seen in how Mary Magdalene has been portrayed throughout history. Despite being one of the most important figures in the Bible, she has often been reduced to a mere prostitute or sinful woman. In reality, Mary Magdalene was a loyal follower of Jesus and played a crucial role in the events leading up to and following his crucifixion.
In addition to Mary Magdalene, many other female disciples accompanied Jesus during his ministry. Galilean women were present during his teachings and miracles and supported him and his disciples in their daily lives. This demonstrates the importance of women in both the spiritual and practical aspects of Jesus’ mission.
Rev. Robbins also emphasized the significance of the resurrection to women. The fact that Jesus appeared to Mary Magdalene first after his resurrection clearly indicates the vital role that women played in his life and ministry. This event highlights that Jesus valued and respected women, despite the societal norms of the time.
As we celebrate Easter, it is essential to remember the contributions of women in Jesus’ life and ministry. By recognizing the double standard placed on women and acknowledging their central role in the events of the Bible, we can gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of the message that Jesus sought to convey. Let us honor the women who played an integral part in the story of our faith.
