This paper examines women portrayed in the New Testament, the Torah, and the Quran, as well as their contrasting portrayals of women's roles in each of the respective texts. Among the women examined in this essay, are the Virgin Mary, Anna, Mary Magdalene, Priscilla, the wife of Aquila, Eve, Delilah, and Jezebel.
From the Paper:"There are a number of women in the New Testament of the Bible that preached the message of Jesus and paved the way to a better position and treatment of women in Christian society. Many of these women proved that they were up to the task of living up to the challenges of their day. Without question, the best known and adored female Biblical figure is the Virgin Mary, Jesus' mortal mother. In fact, no woman in the history of the world has been lifted to the level of reverence as the Virgin Mary."
