Lesser known women in the Bible Part II


Joanna the wife of Chuza (Luke 8:3)-  ”  She travelled with Jesus, and despite the risk to herself and her husband, she remained loyal, staying with him all the way through the crucifixion. She was one of those who then went to the tomb to anoint his body and was one of the first witnesses to his resurrection.” –

Phoebe- Phoebe is mentioned in the Bible in Romans 16:1–2, where Paul writes, “I commend to you our sister Phoebe, a deacon of the church in Cenchreae. I ask you to receive her in the Lord in a way worthy of his people and to give her any help she may need from you, for she has been the benefactor of many people, including me.” He name means “bright and radiant”. It makes sense based on Paul’s comments about her. Phoebe obviously helped many people.


Lydia- She was a worshipper of God. However did not hear about the Gospel until she had crossed paths we paul.  Paul preached the Gospel and God opened up Lydia’s heart to receive the life-giving message. Then Lydia showed hospitality to Paul.
