How many women were present at the crucifixion and who were they?
55 Many women were also there, looking on from a distance; they had followed Jesus from Galilee and had provided for him. 56 Among them were Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James and Joseph, and the mother of the sons of Zebedee.
40 There were also women looking on from a distance; among them were 1) Mary Magdalene, and 2) Mary the mother of James the younger and of Joses, and 3) Salome.
49 But all his acquaintances, including the women who had followed him from Galilee, stood at a distance, watching these things.
25 …Meanwhile, standing near the cross of Jesus were his mother, and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene.
Some have said that these accounts can be reduced to as few as only two different women while others claim this could be as many as seven!
