Women of the Bible

When hearing of famous Bible characters we often hear of the great men of Bible history and seldom of the great women. A look into the Bible shows that women played a huge part of shaping Bible history and life as we know it.

Women of the Bible helped to shape the nation of Israel. They taught their children about the One True God and they patiently waited for the Savior to come. A woman gave birth to God made flesh and women worshipped at His feet as He began His ministry. Women were among the last standing at the cross to witness Jesus' sacrifice for sin. Women were the first at the tomb on the day of His resurrection. Jesus appeared first to a woman and gave her the joyous responsibility of carrying the message of His victory over death.

Eve will be forever remembered for her part of the creating the first sin on earth but she also received the first promise of the Messiah. (Savior)

Esther was a beautiful Jewish maiden who was placed by God in the unlikely position of risking her life to courageously save the entire nation of Israel.

Deborah was a strong-minded and unique woman in Old Testament times. Besides the usual role as wife, she was a prophetess, warrior and Judge of Israel.

Mary of Nazareth, who was given the honor of giving birth to Jesus, risked her life when she humbly accepted the frightening responsibility of an "out-of-wedlock" pregnancy.

Mary the Magdalene was delivered of seven demons and went on to join other women in ministering to Jesus' needs. She recognized his Deity even before some of his male disciples.

Lydia was a successful businesswoman when few women had personal income. She was taught by Paul and is thought to be the first in Europe to follow Jesus.

Each woman in the Bible is there for a reason. Each made a difference in her world either for good or for bad. As women, each of us will make a difference in our own world. Study these women, for you may find something of yourself in them. They sometimes made mistakes and, more importantly, they were often selfless and strong and acted for God's glory.
