Women in Judges
For the month of October, we will be looking at the women in the period of Israel’s history between Joshua’s conquest of Canaan and the establishment of Saul’s monarchy. We will discuss the roles and voices that women are given in Judges and how that can inform and inspire us today.
10-2: Deborah and Jael, Judges 4-5
10-9: Achsah, Judges 1:8-15 and Jephthah’s daughter, Judges 11:29-40
10-16: Samson’s women, Judges 13, 14, 16
10-23: the Levite’s concubine, Judges 19
10-30: Hannah, 1 Samuel 1:1-2:10
(perhaps continue with Ruth?)
