WOMEN IN THE JUDGES' TIME
The Judges is a fascinating but less known period of Israel’s history. That a woman could have fulfilled this office so fearlessly makes Deborah especially important to understand. Countering her courage is the sensuous Delilah, who undermined Samson and brought on a Philistine assault. Another ‘bad girl of the Bible’, we’ll see why the Israelites included a story in their Scriptures that addresses sexuality and its influence, preceding another famous one with a King! By contrast we’ll meet the daughters of Zelophehad who championed property rights for women.

A Surprise, Special Program
WOMEN IN THE MONARCHY
The Monarchy was a critical moment in Israel’s development, uniting the twelve tribes to stave off mutual enemies. The women who most influenced Israel’s greatest King in this period were Bathsheba and Abigail. And what about another Queen that followed, a foreign leader who introduced gods that undermined Yahweh. We’ll examine Jezebel as one of the ‘bad girls of the Bible’ and learn more about what prophets such as Elijah had to face.

WOMEN IN THE NEW TESTAMENT
Part I. August 8
Image: Sketch of Mary and Jesus, Rembrandt
For the last four parts of this series we look at the women of the New Testament. How did they build on their Hebrew Scripture counterparts? Are there relations between them? The first woman explored is naturally Mary, the Mother of Jesus, noting not only her Biblical role but what she has meant to the development of Christianity through the centuries. Her cousin, Elizabeth, is critical to the unfolding story of the prophesied Messiah as the mother of the last prophet. And finally, we will look at the prophetess, Anna, who importantly beheld and identified the Savior.
Part II. September 12

In Part 2, we investigate the additional Marys of Jesus’ life, including Mary Magdalene and Mary of Bethany, trying to sort out their story from the myths that surrounded them to accommodate political and social patterns of early Christianity. There is an important sister relationship with Martha we will also consider. The non-canonical work, The Gospel of Mary Magdalene, will be an additional area to explore, including the larger archaeological find of the Nag Hammadi texts discovered later, but related to her character.
Another Surprise and Special Program
Part III. November 14

"The Whore of Babylon"
Following the resurrection we enter the period of the Early Church and its growth under the Apostle Paul and the women who were instrumental in that work, including Lydia of Philippi and Priscilla of Ephesus. Then we move to the late first century when the Book of Revelation is written and learn about the two key women of Revelation : the woman ‘clothed with a cloud’ and the ‘whore of Babylon’ who acts as a counterfoil to the former.
Part IV. December 12
A Bonus Christmas Program tied to "The Messiah", George Frederic Handel's Oratorio
AVAILABLE & STREAMING NOW: BIBLICAL MATRIARCHS
Image: Hagar and the angel in the wilderness, Jean Corot
Part I. - Watch Now
We begin our series with a look at the women Matriarchs, beginning with Sarah, Hagar and Rebecca. Issues such as barrenness and its impact on social and family roles, slavery and heirs that beget nations, and the role of extended family all fill these women’s stories with meaning and impact then and now.
Part II. - Watch Now
In Part 2, we continue our look at the Biblical Matriarchs with an understanding of Leah, Rachel, and Tamar. How did polygamy affect Israel’s development, and how did wives such as Leah and Rachel negotiate their roles? We’ll also look at sexual violence in Tamar and Dinah’s cases and see how women and society dealt with an issue that continues to raise its ugly head.

WOMEN OF MOSES' WILDERNESS JOURNEY
Part I: Streaming Now
Image: Pharoah's daughter finds baby Moses,Nicolas Poussin
In Part 1, we'll dive into learning about the important women of Moses' life, the women of the wilderness period, starting with the nameless. What do you know about those Hebrew midwives so central to Moses’ arrival? And Pharoah’s daughter, who ensured his safety? We’ll see how many influential women are anonymous in the Hebrew Scriptures, known only by their relationship to a man, and explore some others so important to their time.
Part II: Streaming Now
Image: Miriam, the sister of Moses
Continuing with the women of the wilderness period, we’ll also look at the two women that were so important in Moses’ adult life: Zipporah, his Midianite wife, and Moses’ sister, Miriam. What was their impact on this colossal figure of Israel’s development and Zipporah's impact on both Judaism and Christianity through the Commandments? We’ll also explore the courage of Rahab in her critical role with Joshua and company as the Hebrew people enter Canaan.
