Actually there are 188 females referred to in the bible. Starting alphabetically with Abigail and ending with Zipporah. The wife of Noah is counted but her name is not given i…n the bible. And further there is a woman named Noah who was one of Zelophehad's five daughters. :-)
Answer Romans 16:7 "Greet Andronicus and Junias (Junia) my relatives who have been in prison with me. They are outstanding among the apostles , and they were in Christ b…efore I was." NIV (The NAS and NASU both use "outstanding", the KJV uses "of note" meaning notable.) Junias was a woman.
There were five recognized in the Old Testament : Miriam, Micah6:4; Deborah, Judges 4:4; Huldah, II Kings 22:14, and II Chronicles34: 22-28; Noadiah, Nehemiah 6:14, and Isaiah…'s wife, Isaiah 8:3.For some reason her name was omitted. The New Testament recognizefive prophetesses: Annah, Luke 2:36; Phillip's four [virgin]daughters, Acts 21:8-9, also unnamed. Other women were said to haveprophesied, but were not considered as prophetesses were: Rachel,Genesis 30:24; Hannah, I Samuel 2:1-10, Abigail, I Samuel 25:29-31;Elizabeth, Luke 1:41-45; and Mary, the mother of Jesus, Luke1:46-55.
There are two known black Queens in the Bible in which are QueenSheba who had an encounter with King Solomon and Queen Jezebel whowas with King Ahab.
There were several poor women mentioned in the Bible. I can name the Mother of Jesus who was so poor they could not even afford an extra donkey so both could ride to betlehem …for the census. There was another instance that the Bible mentioins another very poor wowan who deposited her last two coins for the church. Jesus mentioned her as giving more than anybody else because it was all she had.
There were few such as Sarah Abrahams wife , Hannah mother of Samuel was another.
None in the usual sense that a 'eunuch' was a young man/boy who was castrated to stop the hormonal inclination of him to marry or procreate. In a much lesser sense, it may ref…er to someone who is impotent or celibate.
None. Very few women were even named in the bible, let alone allowed to contribute to it.
Well, the Bible says: "As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:" (Romans 3.10) So i suppose that makes us all, men and women, wicked. However two women partic…ularly, stand out to me: Eve, who is the Mother of us all - the first of all us sinners. And Jezebel, of whom God said: But there was none like unto Ahab, which did sell himself to work wickedness in the sight of the LORD, whom Jezebel his wife stirred up. (1Kings 21.25)
All were black
The only example of a female being raised fron death by Jesus was that of the daughter of Jairus, an official in the synagogue. She was 12 years old. also . Acts 9:36-41 No…w there was at Joppa a certain disciple named Tabitha, which by interpretation is called Dorcas: this woman was raised by Peter .
there were 13 judges
There are many, many women mentioned in the Bible; too numerous to list. But to give you an idea, there were about 20 kings reigning in Judah and all but two of their mothers …are mentioned by name.
One must realize that the Bible is race/color neutral. It is moreconcerned with a persons spiritual direction than the color oftheir skin. It should be apparent to all that ca…n see, that OurCreator God likes color and has no prejudice towards it. That being said, if one considers an Ethiopian to be 'black' thanin Numbers 12:1, Moses marries an Ethiopian woman. Also, in Acts8:26-29, Candace is called the Queen of the Ethiopians. There is some conflict with the beautiful woman in Song of Songsthat Solomon is in love with. She tells other women her skin is'black' but some commentators have indicated that this could be adescription of her skin being 'touched by the sun' as a worker inthe fields during the daytime. Again, it is not important for the message of the Scriptures tospeak of the color of ones skin but rather the love of their heartsfor God.
Few people (men or women) are explicitly called righteous in the Bible, but some lived exemplary lives. In Romans 3:10 we are reminded that " There is none righteous, no, not …one ". Elizabeth (wife of Zacharias and mother to John the Baptist) was called righteous in Luke 1:6. In Genesis 38:26 Judah said of Tamar "she has been more righteous and just than I ". Abraham's wife Sarah and Hannah (Samuel's mother) would be considered by many to be righteous as would Mary (mother of Jesus).
The word "black" is in the King James Version of the Bible 18 times. It is in 18 verses.
