BAD GIRLS OF THE BIBLE OR
WELL BEHAVED WOMEN SELDOM MAKE HISTORY PART II
Most people assume that the women in the Bible were good Jewish girls: obedient, courteous and docile. Nothing could be further from the truth! Willful and wise, trampled and triumphant, they used sex, subterfuge, chicanery and charm to get what they knew they deserved. This week we hear the story of Ruth –just one of the stories of the harlots, heartbreakers and heathens whose scintillating stories scorch the Old Testament.
Joan Shiels has a BA in Religion and a MA in Theology with an emphasis in Bible as Literature. She was drawn to the Bible, in large part, by these stories of wild and wily women.
