There is some evidence that some of the earliest Christian communities did engage in counter-cultural gender practices. Paul refers to an apostle named Junia and declares that there is no male nor female. The Gospels tell about Jesus talking to women in public, of women who fund Jesus' ministry, and of women who sit at Jesus' feet (indicating a disciple's proper position of study under a rabbi). The Johannine epistles refer to women who are heads of churches. The second-century Montanists practiced full-blown egalitarianism in regard to who can receive continuing revelation from the Spirit, and one of the main leaders claim that Jesus came to her in the form of a woman.
