AnswerRomans 16:7 "Greet Andronicus and Junias (Junia) my relatives who have been in prison with me. They are outstanding among the apostles, and they were in Christ before I …was." NIV (The NAS and NASU both use "outstanding", the KJV uses "of note" meaning notable.) Junias was a woman.
There were five recognized in the Old Testament : Miriam, Micah 6:4; Deborah, Judges 4:4; Huldah, II Kings 22:14, and II Chronicles 34: 22-28; Noadiah, Nehemiah 6:14, and …Isaiah's wife, Isaiah 8:3. For some reason her name was omitted. The New Testament recognize five prophetesses: Annah, Luke 2:36; Phillip's four [virgin] daughters, Acts 21:8-9, also unnamed. Other women were said to have prophesied, but were not considered as prophetesses were: Rachel, Genesis 30:24; Hannah, I Samuel 2:1-10, Abigail, I Samuel 25:29-31; Elizabeth, Luke 1:41-45; and Mary, the mother of Jesus, Luke 1:46-55.
There are two known black Queens in the Bible in which are Queen Sheba who had an encounter with King Solomon and Queen Jezebel who was with King Ahab.

There were few such as Sarah Abrahams wife , Hannah mother of Samuel was another.
If you mean how many women were descended from Jesus, the answer is none. In the Bible it is quite clear that Jesus never had a sexual relationship nor married, despite the fi…ctional accounts of Dan Brown who erroneously suggested that Jesus had a relationship with Mary Magdalene. However, the Bible also makes it clear that Jesus had several brothers and sisters who would undoubtedly have produced offspring. Therefore, there is a 'blood line' through Mary the mother of Jesus, but none through Jesus himself. An Additional answer: As for the lineage leading UP TO Jesus life on earth, there are a few women mentioned. Family lineage is nearly always listed through the male, but the lineage in the Bible, leading from Abraham to Jesus, lists: Tamar, Rahab, and Ruth, and even the 'wife of Uriah' (or Bathsheba) (Matthew 1:1-5)
I can only think of two woman's names in the Bible that are common to more than one woman: Tamar - in Genesis 38:6 & 2 Samuel 13:1 and; Mary - there are 4 Marys - Mary the… mother of Jesus - (Matthew 1:16), Mary Magdalene - (Matthew 27:56), Mary the mother of James and Jesus - (Matthew 27:56), Mary, Martha and Lazarus' sister - (John 11:19).
Well, the Bible says: "As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:" (Romans 3.10) So i suppose that makes us all, men and women, wicked. However two women partic…ularly, stand out to me: Eve, who is the Mother of us all - the first of all us sinners. And Jezebel, of whom God said: But there was none like unto Ahab, which did sell himself to work wickedness in the sight of the LORD, whom Jezebel his wife stirred up. (1Kings 21.25)
All were black
there were 13 judges
There are many, many women mentioned in the Bible; too numerous to list. But to give you an idea, there were about 20 kings reigning in Judah and all but two of their mothers …are mentioned by name.
Few people (men or women) are explicitly called righteous in the Bible, but some lived exemplary lives. In Romans 3:10 we are reminded that " There is none righteous, no, not …one ". Elizabeth (wife of Zacharias and mother to John the Baptist) was called righteous in Luke 1:6. In Genesis 38:26 Judah said of Tamar "she has been more righteous and just than I ". Abraham's wife Sarah and Hannah (Samuel's mother) would be considered by many to be righteous as would Mary (mother of Jesus).
The word "black" is in the King James Version of the Bible 18 times. It is in 18 verses.
The book of Ruth and the book of Esther.
There were no women Apostles.
