When therefore the LORD knew how the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John,…
It is worth noting that this freedom of speech between man and woman was condemned by the rabbins. One rabbinic precept is: "Prolong not speech with a woman"; a later edition reads: "One's own wife is meant — how much less the wife of another"; and a third statement goes so far as to intimate perilous consequences in the next world for those who disregard this injunction. The Talmud declares it scandalous for a man to talk to a woman on the street; and women were prohibited from keeping schools because that would imply consultation with the fathers of their scholars.
