The Gospel is a golden opportunity that gives no boundaries to whom can be a part of the descendants of Abraham, “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” Galatians 3: 28.Valerie Sigamani
This radical proclamation we have seemed to overlook, the tearing down of barriers between, ethnicity, class, and gender in a highly prosperous Jewish patriarchial society. This proclamation that Jesus has given us a new vision for His Kingdom of equality and invitation on all levels is a revelation that is so grand, that even today we cannot comprehend it. Somehow we have completely overlooked the significance of this passage and the liberty and empowerment that it gives to women who have been trampled on for millennia. Women are invited (in a highly patriarchal society) to partake in the covenant made to Abraham and to be the blessing that is given to the whole world to be the Imago Dei (image of God) to the entire universe. They are invited to be image-bearers of the Highest God.
