Reading some Bible notes recently, I was surprised to see Tamar described as an adulteress and Bathsheba as a seductress. Really?
Really? Still? Is that the label we are still giving women who were abused?
A few days later, I received an email from Red Letter Christians featuring Silenced Women of the Bible, gut-wrenchingly, powerful paintings by Jen Ford.
Take a moment to look at her paintings
Bathsheba – Victim not seductress.
Abuse labeled as sexual immorality.
Victim not seductress.
Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I’ll rise.
This is a follow up to Me Too.
