Was Jesus Egalitarian?

We had a chance to sit down with Professor Amy-Jill Levine and get her thoughts on Jesus and women. We began with one question, “Was Jesus egalitarian?” Please, leave your thoughts in the comments section below.

    Interesting post. However, while I am sure that the the celibacy of Jesus was striking, and perhaps anomolous, the idea that the whole circle surrounding Jesus was celibate runs into difficulties with the mention of Peter’s mother-in-law in Luke 4:38? Also 1 Cor 9:5, which seems to suggest that a number of the apostles,including Peter, had wives?
