Let Me Be A Woman: A Discussion on Biblical Femininity

 If Scripture is above all the story of God, then it reveals a God who honors and cares for women.  The first poem we read in the Bible is an ode to Eve and these lyrics are the only human words recorded pre-Fall. Following the Fall, Scripture’s attention to Eve remains.  Consider this: the protoevangelium—the first gospel announcement in Genesis 3:15—describes the promised Savior, not as the Son of God, but as the seed of the woman.  That’s incredible—but it’s not isolated.  Long before the resurrected Jesus made women His first witnesses, narratives of Old Testament women testified of Christ.
