Next week: Bible women in the world of commerce

We’ve wrapped up our look at Jezebel and her world. It was quite a journey, and undoubtedly there is still more to learn. For the time being, though, I’ll have to put her in my “To be Continued” file.

Next week WomenfromtheBook investigates women and the world of commerce within the unique social contexts of their day. The Woman’s Study Bible lists ten types of businesses that involved women from both the Old and New Testaments. Can you name any or all of them?

Mary Hendren takes us into the world of two businesswomen, Priscilla and Lydia, and gives us fascinating insights as to how they functioned in the world of commerce.

Thanks for stopping by. This journey is so much nicer in the company of friends.

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.
