Were There Women Disciples?

Were There Women Disciples?

"Women Disciples" cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward

First you have the event.
Then you have the many perceptions of the event.
Then you have the escalating oral transmissions of the perceptions of the event.
Then you have the several written documents from the various oral traditions.
Then you have the interpretative sermons from the various documents.
Then you have the rise of the most popular documents.
Then you have the councils that decide which is the only authoritative canon.

I'm going to hazard a guess that in the early stages of this process women were significantly involved.

I'm going to hazard a second guess that in the later stages they were not.
