New Testament & Psalms 2019

Acts 17 – Women of Faith

It’s again I am being reminded that the Bible if full of references to women of faith. Just here in Acts we have these verses;

Act 17:4  And some of them believed, and consorted with Paul and Silas; and of the devout Greeks a great multitude, and of the chief women not a few.

Act 17:12  Therefore many of them believed; also of honourable women which were Greeks, and of men, not a few.

Act 17:34  Howbeit certain men clave unto him, and believed: among the which was Dionysius the Areopagite, and a woman named Damaris, and others with them.

But before we have had many references.
