Women Remembered: Jesus’ Female Disciples

Authors Professor Joan Taylor and Professor Helen Bond offer a look into the lives of Jesus’ female disciples based on their exciting new book, Women Remembered: Jesus’ Female Disciples (2022).  While many of the women in Christian Scriptures have been dismissed, stereotyped, or misrepresented, Professor Taylor and Professor Bond present some of the latest findings and recover the stories of the women who have helped shape our faith.


Helen Bond is Professor of Christian Origins at the University of Edinburgh. Her research focuses on the social and political history of first century Judaea, the historical Jesus and the canonical gospels. She’s published widely on characters in the New Testament (including Pontius Pilate, the High Priest Caiaphas, Barabbas and Herod’s wives), and has more recently turned her attention to Mark’s Gospel.

Joan Taylor is Professor of Christian Origins and Second Temple Judaism at King’s College London. She works on the history, literature, art and archaeology of ancient Judaism and Christianity, with a special interest in material culture, women’s experience, and historical figures: John the Baptist, Jesus, Mary Magdalene and others. She also writes poetry and fiction.
