August Sermon Series – “Bad Girls of the Bible”
During the month of August we’ll explore some of the biblical stories of women who have traditionally been portrayed as “vamps and tramps”. But was Delilah really a double-crossing femme fatale? Was Jezebel a jezebel? Was the woman at the well a vixen or a victim? How did Mary Magdalene get such a bad reputation? Join us as we take a closer look at the “Bad Girls of the Bible”.
August 6: “A Bad Hair Day” (Judges 16:4-21)
We’ll put our preconceived notions of Delilah aside as we take a closer look at the story of her betrayal of Sampson.
August 13: “A Bad Girl or BAD Girl?” (1 Kings 21:1-16)
Just who was Jezebel and how did she earn such a bad reputation? We’ll revisit the biblical stories about this notorious queen of Israel.
August 20: “Looking Below the Surface” (John 4:4-19, 27-30, 39-41)
A pair of monologues this day will help us hear the familiar story of the Samaritan woman at the well in a new way.
August 27: “Apostle to the Apostles” (Luke 8:1-3)
Who exactly was Mary Magdelene and how much of what we think we know is actually in the Bible?
