A Brief History of Women’s Ordination
Most scholars are agree that the priesthood as we know it today was a development in the early Church, not something specifically instituted by the historical Jesus. From the Gospels, it is evident that Jesus had a high regard for women and enjoyed spending time in their company. After the resurrection, it was women to whom Jesus appeared first and it was Mary of Magdala, “the Apostle to the Apostles,” who told the rest of the disciples about her encounter with the Risen Christ (John 21:1-2, 11-18).
