1 Corinthians 1:18-31 - Categorically these four women represent the worst of human circumstance. Tamar both acts deceitfully and is taken advantage of and scandalized, Rahab has to risk everything to become part of the community of God’s people, Ruth is a foreigner and an outcast in a land and among a people not her own, and Bathsheba is one who has experienced tremendous loss- perpetrated by the selfishness of those in power, and seemingly by her own complicity. (Credit Bob McCoy for the categories) How does this cross section of humanity again scream the Grace of God?
