A common misperception is that Christianity has a harsh view of women…that the faith puts women in a subservient or lower category than men.
The institutional church has done exactly that, practicing a patriarchal model, keeping women in subservient roles to men, especially in leadership roles.
But the Person who is central to Christianity was quite the opposite:
Jesus was revolutionary in the way He treated women
Ruth Liefeld: “The most striking thing about the role of women in the life of Jesus is that that they are there at all.”
