Women in the Bible
– a three part series
Although the Bible was written within the context of a patriarchal society,
and therefore presents the stories of men more frequently than those of women,
there are more women than one might suppose who are essential to God’s plan
for His people. This “mini course” on women in the Bible will explore stories of
women both known and unknown, the good, the bad and everything in between.
