12 Women of the Bible




Happy Week 6, OBSers! Can you believe we are almost done with our study? This is the last of the women of our study.

Okay, here is the last of our Weekly Lowdown’s. Print this, post it to your fridge or tuck it in your study book.

This is your SUGGESTED guide for the week to help you keep up in the Bible study!

Here’s what’s happening in our study this week…

What We’re Reading This Week... Mary Magdalene (pp. 97-106, in the guide.)

This week’s memory verse: Galatians 6:9 (NIV) – Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”

Mary Magdalene: Transforming for Outcast to Follower

Her Character:  Though mistakenly characterized as a prostitute in many popular writings, the Bible says only that Mary was possessed by seven demons. She probably suffered a serious mental or physical illness from which Jesus delivered her. She is a beautiful example of a woman whose life was poured out in response to God’s extravagant grace.

Key Scriptures:  Luke 8:1-2; John 19:25 and 20:1-18


Observe  Our culture seems to have ways of declaring people either “in” or “out.” What places a person in the inner circle and what makes a person an outcast?


Bible — Take a moment and read Galatians 6:9. Then try the S.O.A.P. Bible Study Method …



Observe  God created humans to be in His image, to be reflections of Him on earth, mean and women to reflect God’s glory. Jesus takes the broken shards of our lives and mends them back together so we can reflect Jesus.  – Jonalyn Fincher

Stretch   Fill in the blank: This week I can spend more time at the feet of Jesus by _______. What is getting in the way of you doing this? Prayerfully consider and journal your thoughts. #12Women, #OBS

Each New Day!

Each morning gives us a fresh start, a new opportunity to take the tendency to edge God out and exchange it for a perspective of exalt...
