Was Jesus As Respectful To Women's Authority As Men's?

Nobody attempted to answer this question.

There is a women's theological movement afoot that claims that Jesus put his women followers ahead of the men. I heard a discussion of it on NPR. The spokespeople cited several passages from scripture in support of their claim. I remember two.

One is that the women stayed at the cross whereas all the men went into hiding.

Another is that women were the first to encounter Christ after his resurrection.

There were other citations which I forgot. Then there is also the present status of Mother Mary in Christianity. She is appearing now whereas Jesus has not appeared for about 2,000 years.

To these I would like to add that Paul undermined this intention of Jesus when he said that god is to man as man is to woman. Most of us would phrase it: god is to man as man is to animal. So Paul is placing women among the animals in my view.

Paul undermined the intention of Jesus in many other ways- like the fact that Jesus came for the Jews. Christianity is really Paul's religion and Judiasm is the religion of Jesus. It's clear that Jesus had no intention of starting a new religion.
