Becoming Queen Bathsheba with Amanda Bedzrah - AJ 74

August 9, 2022

Bathsheba is taken against her will by the most powerful man in Israel. A month later, she discovers she carries the evidence of their secret, dangerous encounter. With her husband at war, this pregnancy could mean her death or untold greatness. When the king finds out that she is with child, he immediately summons her husband home from war, a cunning plan in mind.

Amanda talks with Lynn about how she developed this fictional retelling of one of the greatest Bible stories of all time. This is a story of injustice, betrayal, deception, heartbreak, forgiveness, love, redemption, and second chances.

In the stories of Ruth, Hannah, Mary & Martha, we see exemplary faith, pillars of strength, and profound theological discernment.  

Lynn, Carmen, & Sareen explore the unfortunate common misunderstandings about these women, the unifying themes between them, and the impact these women can and should have on the lives of believers today. Just because a woman may serve domestically doesn't mean she can't also have tremendous involvement in the larger redemptive story God is writing among humanity.
