Jesus and the Female Divine

In the early church, across various communities, Jesus was celebrated in the language and imagery of the female divine, Woman Wisdom.

This evidence is found in the bible and is affirmed by various early church writers.

Biblical scholars increasingly recognise the evidence of this in the New Testament. However, this startling reality is often not discussed beyond academic circles in churches or in the wider community.

Within our culture, that so often focuses only on male imagery for God, something rich is offered to us by re-engaging with this ancient early church understanding.

At Richmond Uniting Church we are holding an evening seminar to explore Jesus and the female divine. There is no need to book. No prior knowledge of this field is required. There is no cost and all are welcome.
