Renown Women in the Bible

January 13, 2007

Here are just a few scriptures relating to a few reknown women in the

Elizabeth – Mother of John the Baptist

“There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judea, a certain priest
named Zacharias, of the division of Abijah. His wife was of the
daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elizabeth. And they were both
righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances
of the Lord blameless. But they had no child, because Elizabeth was
barren, and they were both well advanced in years.” LUKE 1:5-7

Sarah – Wife of Abraham

“By faith Sarah herself also received strength to conceive seed, and
she bore a child when she was past the age, because she judged Him
faithful who had promised”. HEBREWS 11:11

Hannah – Mother of Samuel

“The Lord has granted me my petition which I asked of Him. Therefore
I also have lent him to the Lord; as long as he lives he shall be
lent to the Lord. So they worshiped the Lord there.”

1 SAMUEL 1:27-28

Ruth – Great Grandmother of David

“Blessed are you of the Lord, my daughter! For you have shown more
kindness at the end than at the beginning, in that you did not go
after young men, whether poor or rich. And now, my daughter, do not
fear. I will do for you all that you request, for all the people of
my town know that you are a virtuous woman.” RUTH 3:10-11

Lydia – Seller of Purple (Merchant)

‘On the Sabbath day we went out of the city to the riverside, where
prayer was customarily made; and we sat down and spoke to the women
who met there. Now a certain woman named Lydia heard us. She was a
seller of purple from the city of Thyatira, who worshipped God. The
Lord opened her heart to heed the things spoken by Paul. And when
she and her household were baptized, she begged us, saying, “If you
have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, come to my house and
stay.” So she persuaded us.’ ACTS 16:13-15

    Thanks for your postings. They are very encouraging!

    Lydia is my favorite woman in the bible. She was the first convert in Europe. She was a businesswoman. She was seeking God by the banks of the river. She was open to hear the Gospel from Paul. She received the Truth. I love it that the scripture says “the Lord opened her heart”. I have a great book called “All the Women of the Bible” by Edith Deen. I would highly recommend it if you haven’t read it already.

    God’s blessings be upon you this day and always.
