Welcome to week 2 of Women in the Bible: Beautiful and Brave series! Each week for 10 weeks, we are studying the most beautiful and brave women in the Bible. This week our focus is on Deborah, the only female judge of Israel named in the Bible. She is one cool chick!! Check out her profile!
Beautiful Women of the Bible: Day 3 - Deborah Deborah's boldness came from relying on God - not herself. In a male-dominated culture, Deborah did not let her power go to her head but used her authority as God guided her to command an army to victory.
Love this image for Deborah. Who says there aren't strong female characters in the Bible. Read Judges 4 and 5. She was a judge of Israel, a prophetess, a wife, a warrior, even the commander of the army wouldn't go to war without her.
