JACKSON, Glenna S.. The 'complete gospel' revisited: Middle East and African influences. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2014, vol.70, n.1, pp.01-06. ISSN 2072-8050. http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/HTS.V70I1.2760.
The author focuses on the historically-reliable gospel pericopes in which a woman is the lead character. She argues that these women provide the complete gospel -Jesus teaches, heals, preaches and is anointed in the context of female-based stories and, of course, the women take him from conception to resurrection. Jackson argues, not only from an analysis of the texts themselves, but also from her personal experiences in the Middle East and Africa.
