Women and the Historical Jesus by Kathleen E. Corley
Book DescriptionFor decades scholars have argued that Jesus' teaching fostered inclusive communities and the full participation of women. Now Kathleen Corley challenges the assumption that Jesus himself fought patriarchal limitations on women. Rather the analysis of his authentic teaching suggests that while Jesus critiques class and slave/free distinctions in his culture, his critique did not extend to unequal gender distinctions. The presence of women among his disciples, she says, is explained on the basis of the presence of women among many Greco-Roman religions and philosophical groups, including the Judaism of Jesus' own day.

Films about religion have a habit of stirring up controversy - witness Scorsese's The Last Temptation of Christ and The Life of Brian! Mel Gibson's film is therefore following in a long tradition.
