Apopka, FL – In the month of May 2021 at Pentecostals of Apopka Church Sunday School class focused on Women of the Bible because of Mother’s Day. Everyone learned a lot about these great women which were Ruth, Hagar, Hannah, Deborah, and Lois & Eunice. All of these women were strong, powerful, and contributed to Christianity. Below are some brief paragraphs about each biblical female that were talked about in class.
Here is the line up of the Women of the Bible series. The first one was named Ruth. She is noted as a woman of noble character in the book of Judges. Here is a list of words that descript her which were courageous, respect, patient, honest, and lovable. She is buried at the Tomb of Jesse and Ruth in Hebron, Palestine.
The next Woman of the Bible was a lady named Hagar. Abraham gave Hagar her first and only child named Ishmael. Hagar was considered surrogate mother and not a mistress with Abraham. God approved the birth of Ishmael. Sarah had infertility issues and could not conceive a child. Later she had a baby. Hagar and Sarah did not get along. Abraham and Sarah rejected Hagar and sent her to live in the wilderness.
Hannah grew up with Jewish roots and was also a Jewish Judge. She was married to Elkanah who had another wife too. Hannah always wanted to be a mother but had infertility problems. Her prayer and cries were answered by God, which gave her a son, named Samuel. She raised her son with the Jewish heritage at the temple for religious training. Hannah is buried at the Tomb of Samuel in Palestine.
Deborah was a very strong woman who was a Jewish female Judge. Plus she was a preacher and military commander as well. She was a type of woman who displayed no fear, courage, and bravery. Deborah may have been buried at a grave site near Kedesh, Israel.
Who were these two ladies, Lois & Eunice that helped raise Timothy? Lois was the grandmother to Timothy and Eunice was the mother that brought Timothy into the world. Both of these ladies were born into the Jewish faith and taught Timothy Jewish scripture from infancy. Then Eunice introduced Timothy into Christianity. Later, Timothy went on to become a Saint. These two ladies were examples of the powerful influence into a young man’s life.
