Influential Women in the Book of Acts

As the church grew and began to spread, the influence of many women are recorded in the book of Acts.  These women were integral to the development of this new church.  Because of the work of the 12 Apostles, the focus is often on the men of the Bible, but God’s plan in the new kingdom was to break down the walls that separated people and give importance and influence to everyone, whether male or female.  Today on Mother’s Day we honor the influential women in the early days of God’s movement.

  • THE GRATEFUL WOMEN    Luke 8:2-3; Luke 24:9-11; Acts 1:14       Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Susanna, and others
  • THE FAITHFUL MOTHER OF JESUS   Matthew 1:18-25; John 19:25-27; Luke 24:1-12; Acts 1:14
  • THE SERVING MOTHERS    Acts 2:42-47; Acts 4:32-35; Acts 10:1-2; Acts 16:31-34
  • THE SUPPORTIVE (?)  WIVES OF TWO MEN   
  1. Sapphira, the wife of Ananias – Acts 5:1-10
  2. Priscilla, the wife of Aquila – Acts 18:18-26
  • THE GOOD WOMAN    Acts 9:36-42
  • THE SAVED WOMAN   Acts 16:13-15
