“God alone lights the way out of the darkness in Genesis. But in Exodus, God has many partners, first among them, five brave women.”
This morning Huffington Post/Religion ran Lauren Marko’s great story on Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s commentary for passover in which Justice Ginsburg draws out the stories of women who play powerful roles in the Exodus of the Israelites from slavery in Egypt. “Yocheved, Moses’ mother, and Miriam, his sister. . . . Shifra and Puah, the midwives who rejected Pharoah’s decree to kill all the Jewish baby boys. . . . and Batya, Pharoah’s daughter, who plucked baby Moses out of the Nile River.”
Read “With New Commentary, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Turns Passover Into A Feminist Celebration Of Biblical Women” for yet another reminder of why it is so important for men and women to study the Bible together. Together we see so much more, and there is so much more to discover!
And for the record, God has many brave women partners in Genesis too!
