The History Channel The Bible Miniseries is leading people to think more about scripture and its meaning than anything else.
The famous Bible women dealt with identical situations that we face today. They knew grief, loss, suffering, stress, infertility, growing old and dying. There are stories or honorable mentions of nearly 180 great women in the Bible. Some we now well, Some are overlooked. Here is a chance to take a look at women that would be great in our lives today.
Sarah’s life was one depicting immense faith as she was asked to deny herself, as she faced famine, and as she feared growing old. Her life teaches us to wait on the Lord and reveals a miracle of God. Isaac was distraught at her death and only consoled by meeting Rebekah, whom he married. But it wasn’t all good. Impatient for a child in her earlier years, Sarah forced her husband on Haggai, their maid, who conceived Ishmael and later was banished from Abraham’s employ.
She can be found in Genesis chapters 11 through 25; Isaiah 51:2; Romans 4:19, 9:9; Hebrews 11:11; and 1 Peter 3:6.
