In the "Women In Genesis Study," you will learn about God’s holy plan for the home, why it was spoiled, and how to regain it. Your heart will be stirred to set high and holy goals for your life. Eve was “every woman,” a sobering illustration of a wife’s leading her husband into sin. Was Noah’s wife a failure? By whose standard?
Sarah, Hagar, and Lot’s wife: one saw the invisible. Another couldn’t couldn’t see the visible, and one saw only ashes.
Rebekah favored one son, but she didn’t like the consequences. Her daughters-in-law, Leah and Rachel were two sisters whose lives were too tangled to unravel, but still blessed by God. Leah’s innocent daughter Dinah found danger in that pagan land. And Tamar, Judah’s daughter-in-law was twice-widowed, so how could the promise of the Savior ever come true?
In Egypt, Joseph resisted the blandishments of his boss’s wife; her heart and her loyalties were not in her home. Of Asenath, Joseph’s Egyptian wife, it could be said, “Where she was, there was home.”
