While we may know the Bible stories of Israel’s military leaders, kings, and prophets, we are often less familiar with the stories of the women who helped to establish a monarchy, defend Israel’s interests, and reflect God’s image in unique ways. In Women in the Old Testament, Part Two, a continuation of the classic commentary by Irene Nowell, OSB, in conversation with the contemporary voice of Jaime Waters, you will explore stories of women of the Bible such as Judith and Esther, whose complexities and gifts broke stereotypes and continue to reveal God to us. Commentary, study and reflection questions, prayers, and access to online lectures are included. 4 lessons.
