Luke 8:1-3 (EHV*): Soon afterward Jesus was traveling from one town and village to another, preaching and proclaiming the good news of the kingdom of God. The Twelve were with Him and also some women who had been healed of evil spirits and diseases: Mary, called Magdalene, from whom seven demons had gone out; Joana, the wife of Cuza, Herod's household manager; Susanna; and many others who provided support for them out of their own possessions.
(below, I imagine I had been among the throng of males who were following Jesus, looking back on the importance of these faithful women who followed the Messiah before His Ascension and Resurrection into Glory)
Welcome, Women! Truth be told
You're the walking-warm witness of this fold
No sooner do we reach another town
Than women flock from old men's tales
To hear it straight, the message of hope
No Jew nor Gentile nor gender ropes
For you are tied to Christ for Life
Which resonates beyond man and wife
When the Master is risen, you shall go home
As whole as any, the Church's glow
