GOD'S WOMEN: RAHAB

Would you be surprised to find a prostitute listed in the Genealogy of Jesus? Rahab is there. 

In this program, Fr. Mike tells the story of Rahab who is living in the beautiful city of Jericho, the one with the famous wall. The Jews are planning to come on their way to the Holy Land and send out two spies.  They end up hiding in Rahab’s house. It’s beginning to sound like a TV mystery, isn’t it?

Fr. Mike gives the historical background of Rahab’s story. He then looks at Jesus and his ministry with prostitutes and finally how this story applies to us today. You may be surprised at all the applications he is able to draw for us. He even ends up with how to be a missionary!

GOD'S WOMEN: TAMAR

Imagine a woman who poses as a prostitute and sleeps with her father-in-law. Would you expect that story to be in the Bible? Probably not, but the story of Tamar is in the Book of Genesis. She is often unknown and her story may shock you!

Fr. Mike, as he has done in this series on God’s Women, sets forth the history of Tamar, giving the background and highlighting the marriage laws that pertain to her.

In one sense, Tamar is a kind of “BlackWidow” since two of her husbands die after marrying her, and she is left without the children she so wanted. What happens is another one of those dramatic tales that would make a good TV series.

Then Fr. Mike talks about how this story relates to us today. He poses questions to help us delve deeper into the Bible story to see if we are plagued by the past,  how we can forgive, and what steps we can take to stand up for injustice.
