By Faith: Women of the Old Testament

  • Mar 2021 Issue

For we live by faith, not by sight.—2 Corinthians 5:7

A few years ago, I began to study the particular role of women in Scripture. Because I was healing from a long season of loss-upon-loss, I began in the Gospels, looking deeply at how Jesus ministered to women. When I turned my attention to the Old Testament, I saw that women were not incidental. Rather, they were co-workers and co-worshipers. Co-recipients and co-couriers of God’s grace. Join me as we shine the spotlight on women from the first five books of the Old Testament. My prayer is that through this study, we will:

  • Recognize the role of women in God’s redemption story
  • Understand and celebrate God’s persistent providence
  • Hear God’s call to remain faithful to Him
