This paper makes a case for the Galilean women of Luke 8:1–3 as a
paradigm of Christian discipleship. The summary passage, 8:1–3, is
interpreted in relation to two accounts that frame it—the story of the
unnamed woman at the house of Simon the Pharisee (7:36–50) and
the Parable of the Sower (8:4–8)—and to the death and resurrection
narrative (22–24). From an analysis of these passages, the women will be shown as epitomizing the meaning of discipleship.
