The Unseen: The First Preacher

May 15, 2023

Joanna was an early follower of Jesus who was the wife of one of King Herod’s chief stewards. She was healed by Jesus and began to follow Him. She helped to financially support His ministry. She was at His side during the crucifixion and amongst the first to see the empty tomb. She was the first person to tell anybody the Gospel. The very first person that God chose to share the message of Jesus overcoming death was a woman. What does that mean about how God values women? What does that tell us about women in ministry?
