Relationships of Compassion: Jesus and Women
October 14 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
It can be said that the gospels provide us with two portraits; a portrait of Jesus of course and a portrait of the Christian. Another way to say it is that in the Gospels we can find out what God is like and what we are supposed to be like.
In the gospels Jesus is often “moved with compassion” and sometimes he is met with compassion, mostly from women. The stories of these compassionate encounters between Jesus and women paint a portrait. By studying the portrait we can learn how to be compassionate persons ourselves and how to respond to a compassionate God.
We’ll look at Jesus’ encounters with his mother with Anna and Peter’s Mother‑in‑law, the Woman Accused of Adultery, the Widow of Nain, as well as Martha and Mary, Pilate’s wife, the Daughters of Jerusalem and some others to see how compassion looks in these encounters and how we can make the kind of compassion we find in the Gospels work in our lives.
