Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a feminist analysis of the Sayings Source Q. The author illustrates an example of the androcentric opposition to patriarchy in some detail. Despite the androcentrism and inconsistency in the perception of women' s labor, in these texts, the lives of women are acknowledged. Despite the androcentrism of the sayings source, women are given the same opportunities as men to follow Jesus. The author considers the sapiential motifs of the sayings source, and indeed of the entire synoptic tradition, to be marginal and essentially irrelevant in the Jesus traditions. She is of the opinion that it is the theological reason that is the significance of the interrelationship of the gospel of the poor and justice for women and women's liberation. Despite the androcentrisrn of the sayings source, the author concludes that in dealing with women' s family conflicts the itinerant prophetesses did exist.
