Complicated Women in Scripture: A Jewish-Christian Conversation

July 15, 2020

How are common sacred stories about women like Queen Esther and Rahab taught differently in Christianity and Judaism? 

This final episode in this season is a lively dialogue between Rabbi Jennifer Hartman and Pastor Andrea Roske-Metcalfe. Together, they explore how they each teach and preach tricky holy passages in a way that keeps female characters complex and layered. Listen for how beautiful things can get when we dwell in the muck of messy human stories and allow women to be multi-faceted. 

Note: this conversation uses adult language and addresses instances of sexual assault and stillbirth.
