Five controversial women to read about this weekend

There are five unlikely women who changed eternity you should read about this weekend. I have studied them and I found them super amazing.

Their names are not unfamiliar if you are a scholar of the Word. I’ll briefly write about them according to the original writer of the book.

They are: Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, Bathsheba, and Mary.

According to the author, Francine Rivers, these five women are in the lineage of Jesus Christ. These Eastern women lived in ancient times, yet their stories apply to our lives and difficult issues we face in our world today.

They were on the edge. They had courage, took risks, did the unexpected, lived daring lives, and sometimes they made mistakes – big mistakes.

Tamar is a woman of hope.

Rahab is a woman of faith.

Ruth is a woman of love.

Bathsheba is a woman who received unlimited grace.

Mary is a woman of obedience.

These five women were not perfect, and yet God in His infinite mercy used them in His perfect plan to bring forth the Christ we all know today.

Have a restful weekend as you study these great women in the Bible.
