There are more…

We’ve finished our series on sisters, but you might like to know the names of the  ones we skipped:

Drusilla (Acts 24:24), wife of Felix, and Bernice (Acts 25:13).  Historians make this connection, but it is not stated in the Bible.

Michal and Merab (1 Samuel 14:49; 18:17, 19; 2 Samuel 21:8)

Jemima, Keziah, and KerenHappuch, Job’s daughters (Job 42:14)

Commentators speculate that Tryphena and Tryphosa, mentioned in Romans 16:12, could have been twin sisters.

Next week we’ll explore the all-important festivals in the social context of the  New Testament.

Thanks for stopping by. You make this journey more enjoyable!

About womenfromthebook

Mine is a life-long interest in the women of the Bible, and I enjoy exploring the world in which they lived, and discovering the challenges that they faced. I have enough curiosity about them to last the rest of my life.
