Mary is a very ordinary name. According to a Google search I did recently, the name Mary (along with its variations such as Marie and Miriam) is still the single most popular name in the world.

Mary was also an ordinary name in the days of Jesus. In fact, there are at least five different Marys in the New Testament. In the Old Testament, though, we hear about only one Mary or Miriam. She is the young girl who helped rescue her brother Moses from murder.

This three-session study examines the bold women who have shared this name.
