Series Bad Girls of the Bible

Usually, we study the virtuous women in Scripture—Ruth, Esther, or any of the New Testament Marys. But the “Bad Girls of the Bible” also have much to teach us, because they wrestled with situations and sins that are oh-so-familiar. Eve had food issues. Potiphar’s wife and Delilah had man trouble. Lot’s wife and Michal couldn’t let go of the past. Sapphira couldn’t let go of money. And Jezebel couldn’t let go of anything. Yet the woman at the well had her thirst quenched at last, while Rahab and the “sinful woman” left their sordid histories behind. Each day we’ll consider one of the “bad girls of the Bible” and discover why both “good girls” and “bad girls” (and, for that matter, “good guys” and “bad guys”) need a Savior. Join Liz Curtis Higgs as she explores the stories of some of the “Bad Girls of the Bible” with the Discover the Word group and helps us experience God’s grace anew.
