We will consider the question, “Who was Mary Magdalene?” We will look at the biblical examples of Jesus’ actions toward women, which are reflected in his teachings and healing work; and finally, we will take a brief look at womanhood’s contribution to the early Christian church.

About the speaker, Kristy L. Christian, M.A.R.
President of Biblos Foundation, Kristy L. Christian, a class-taught Christian Scientist, graduated from Principia College with a B.A. in History/Secondary Education. After teaching high school, Kristy’s professional interest turned to the field of Bible study and research. She received her M.A. in Religion, with highest honors, from Oklahoma City University’s School of Religion.
Because of Kristy’s deep love for the Scriptures, she has taken numerous trips and led many adult groups throughout the Holy Land, including Israel, Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Greece, Turkey, and Italy. In 1997 she was an assistant on the Harvard Alumni Association cruise through the Arabian and Red Seas, visiting Dubai, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Oman, Yemen, and Saudi Arabia. To celebrate the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible, in August of 2011 she led a tour to England to study the historical events that led up to its translation.
Kristy has given numerous Bible talks and workshops throughout the United States, Canada, India, and England for the purpose of helping audiences learn how to study the Bible in its inspired meaning.
One of the results of her Bible study and extensive travel is a series of books, co-authored with her sister, Kathryn L. Merrill, on Teaching Bible History to Children of All Ages. Her most recent book is titled, Mary Baker Eddy: Under the Shadow of the Almighty. Kristy has also recorded a number of Bible talks which are available on CD.
