Join us on Monday, October 26 at 8 PM as we study the life of Joanna.
A woman of high rank in Herod's court, she experienced healing at Jesus' hands. She responded by giving herself totally, supporting his ministry and following him wherever he went. The story of her healing may have been known to Herod himself.
You can find her story in Luke 8:1-3; 24:10
(and Matthew 14:1-12 and Luke 23:7-12 for background on Herod and his court)
Our questions for the night are:
- What does it say about Jesus that women traveled with him and his disciples, and that the women were paying the bills? (Luke 8:1 – 3)
- What does it say about Joanna that she was doing this?
- What do you think surprised and frightened Joanna and the other women at the tomb (Luke 24:5)?
- What do you admire about Joanna? How would you like to be like her?
Food for Thought:
Read Luke 23:55 – 24:12
- Jesus’ male disciples were hiding for fear that they, too, would be arrested. Why do you suppose Joanna and the other women risked being associated with a man who had been executed for treason?
