Jesus (3)

When Jesus lived on earth, He treated men and women the same. Jesus believed that both men and women were important and valuable people.
In the New Testament, we can read that Jesus healed women, had conversations with them, ate with them and fellowshiped with them. Our Bible Reading today tells us that women were the first people to learn about Jesus’ resurrection.
Verses 5-6a say, “The angel said to the women, ‘Don’t be afraid. I know you are looking for Jesus, the one who was killed on the cross. But he is not here. He has risen from death, as he said he would.’” In verse 7, the angel told the women to tell other people that Jesus had risen. The angel gave the women the important responsibility of sharing the news about Jesus’ resurrection.
God’s plan of salvation is for both men and woman. And He can use all people to spread the Good News about Jesus.
