Day 2: Women of the Bible

This study is based off of the book Women of the Bible by Jean E. Syswerda.

Sarah - Her name means "Chieftainness" or "Princess"

Key Scriptures - Genesis 12:1-20, 16:1-8, 17:1-22, 18:1-15, 21:1-13, and Galatians 4:22-31

Sarah was Abraham's wife. She was beautiful enough to attract rulers in the ancient world, but she could be strong headed and jealous. She was considered a loyal wife who always did what was right.

When Sarah was ninety years old, God told her that she and Abraham would finally have a child. Imagine how hard it would be to believe that you would give birth at age 90!
