A Conversation@theRRC with the Revd Tony Curtis
Non-Hebrew women like Zipporah, Jael and Ruth who appear in biblical narratives and play a key role in Israel’s salvation history tell us a lot about who God is and what God might be asking of us. Join Tony Curtis as he discusses:
What lessons can we learn for today as individuals and as communities of faith from the way these women act as God’s agents in the Bible?
Why does God use outsiders to show salvation to God’s people?
