There are three books in the Bible with women’s names. They are the book of Ruth, Esther and Judith.  I was always fascinated, though not sure about the reason, with the stories of these dynamic women. There are also other notable women described in the Old Testament including the mother of the seven sons who were tortured and killed by the terrible king in the book of Maccabees.

When we go through the letters of St Paul, we will come across a St Paul who is speaking positively about a number of women and it seems that nobody else has done it in such a magnitude. From all these it is very clear that women were playing a very significant role among the ‘chosen people of God’ both during Old Testament times and in New Testament periods.
