The Portrait of a Woman in the Old Testament

Riitta Keskimaki: The Portrait of a Woman in the Old Testament

”But from the beginning it was not so.” This is how Jesus once corrected his compatriots’ twisted attitude to women. With Jesus’ words in mind, I am going to deal with the OT image of woman in my session. It is good to bear in mind that traditions – whether Jewish or Christian – have not always stayed loyal to the biblical truth. Nowhere can this be seen more clearly than in the value and status of women throughout the centuries.
