    Abstract:
    The Greco-Roman and Jewish worlds of the first century were not friendly environments for women. Women had few rights and rarely participated in public life, with their well-being largely dependent on male family members. The Christian message, outlined in the New Testament, was not just the beginning of a religious revolution but it also planted the seeds of a social revolution, which is yet to be completed. This paper contrasts the predominant worldview of the first century AD with the revolutionary message of New Testament Christianity regarding the role and status of women in the Christian Church.
