Women in ministry- is that biblical?

Intriguing title … Also in the messianic circuit, but it’s good to have a closer look, because Yeshua has come to restore everything. The sources I quote next to the Word confirm my thoughts. However, the Word is decisive. You may proof my thoughts. Shalom!

Kisha Gallacher says something confronting in the video below this article and that helps to put our feet in YHVH’s track instead of continuing to embrace outdated patterns, unless they have been able to stand the Hebrew “viewing test” of the Word. Hence the incentive to refer to the Word.

What does the Scripture say about it?

Women in the scriptures who taught, prophesied, served, and became leaders.

The Torah contains instructions and promised blessings that are available for men, women and children. Women are encouraged to hear for themselves, to learn, to study and to teach the scriptures as men do.

“Gather the people, men, women, and children, and your stranger that is in your gates, that they may hear, and that they learn, and fear YHVH, your Elohim, and observe every word of this law.” Deuteronomy 31:12

“And he read there in front of the street that was before the water gate, from early morning till noon, for the men and the women, and those who could understand it, and the ears of all the people were attentive to the book. of the law.” Nehemiah 8: 3

Miriam, the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a tambourine in her hand and all the women followed her with tambourines and dancing.” Exodus 15:20

“For I have brought you up out of the land of Egypt, and delivered you from the house of bondage, I have sent Moses, Aaron, and Miriam before you.” Micah 6: 4

“Now Deborah, a prophetess, the wife of Lappidoth, she founded Israel at that time.” Judges 4: 4

“So Hilkiah the priest, and Ahikam, and Achbor, and Shaphan, and Asaiah, went to Chulda the prophetess, the wife of Shallum the son of Tikva the son of Haras, guardian of the wardrobe (now she dwelt in Jerusalem). in the second quarter), and they talked [consulted] her and she said to them: ‘Thus says Yahweh, the Elohim of Israel’ … “2 Kings 22:14

The wife of the prophet Isaiah was also a prophetess. “I went to the prophetess, and she received and bore a son, then YHVH said to me:” Call his name “Maher Shalal Hash Baz.” “Isaiah 8: 3

Even the believers in the Scriptures in the New Testament can clearly see women in ministry: “There was an Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher (she was of an advanced age, lived with a man seven years later her virginity “Luke 2:36

Women even worked together with the apostle Paul:
“Yes, I beg you also, true partner, to help these women, for they cooperated with me in the good news [the gospel], with Clement also, and the rest of my colleagues, whose names are in the book of life. . “Philippians 4: 3

“And I commend you to Phebe our sister, being a servant of the assembly who is in Cenchrea” Romans 16: 1

“Now this man had four virgin daughters who prophesied.” Acts 21: 9

We now know that many righteous women in the Renewed Testament served as disciples, but because the translators set the names differently and the established order in church and state was determined by men, the general assumption has been extended to the present date that it was only for male brothers. intended to take all these positions.

Unusual in those days  women were equal to children and slaves: Luk 8 : 1-3 And it came to pass after this, that he journeyed from one city to the other, preaching and preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God; and the twelve were with him;
Luke 8: 2 And certain women, who were healed of evil spirits and infirmities, even Mary called Magdalen, of whom seven devils went out;
Luk 8: 3 And Joanna, the wife of Chusas, the steward of Herod, and Susanna, and many others that ministered unto him of her property.

Mar 15:40 And there were also women, beholding this from afar, among whom was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, the little one, and Joses, and Salome;
Mar 15:41 Which also, when he was in Galilee, followed him, and served him; and many other women who had come up with him to Jerusalem.
