We don’t tend to think of Bible women playing a role in wars, and yet, the Old Testament includes plenty of examples of female spies, allies, and even warriors. We conclude our celebration of Women’s History Month with our final group of Unsung Heroes from the Bible. Today we take a look at Undercover Agents, ordinary women who performed extraordinary feats in times of war.
Each of these stories has a common thread – ordinary women going about their everyday lives caught unaware when suddenly they were whisked into action.
None of these women sought adventure. Rahab, Jael and the Woman of Bahurim were at their homes. Deborah was under a tree in her front yard. The Wench of En-Rogel was at her place of work. The Woman of Abel was trapped inside the city walls. And the Woman of Thebez was trapped atop a tower. They were all going about their day to day business as usual living. And yet when the situation called for bravery, they were ready and answered the call.
All God's Women is a Bible study podcast where we journey through the Bible one woman at a time. If you enjoy learning about women in the Bible, tune in each week to learn about a different Bible woman.
