Abstract

This paper makes a case for the Galilean women of Luke 8:1-3 as a paradigm of Christian discipleship. The summary passage, 8:1-3, is interpreted in relation to two accounts that frame it--the story of the unnamed woman at the house of Simon the Pharisee (7:36-50) and the Parable of the Sower (8:4-8)--and to the death and resurrection narrative (22-24). From an analysis of these passages, the women will be shown as epitomizing the meaning of discipleship.
