Have you ever saved a life before? Have you ever made a split second decision that had a permanent impact on someone else’s life? Would you, if you could?
In today’s episode of All God’s Women we look at Jehosheba, a woman who saw senseless murders happening right before her eyes, and found a way to save the life of an innocent baby.
We meet Jehosheba in 2 Kings chapter 11. Her story intersects with Athaliah and Zibiah. So let’s first get clear on how everyone is related. Jehosheba was the daughter of King Johoram, Athaliah’s husband, but Jehosheba’s mother was a lesser wife. Jehosheba was the half-sister of Ahaziah, Zibiah’s husband. Ahaziah was the son of Athaliah and the father of Joash.
So now, who was Jehosheba? Not only was she a princess, the daughter of King Johoram, but she was the wife of the high priest, Jehoiada.
Got it? Yeah, I know. You pretty much need to draw out a family tree to keep up with all the kings and queens and their relatives. But it will fall into place as I share the story.
