Shiphrah and Puah: They Made the Right Choice
Play • 10 min

How do you respond to authority? Have you ever been asked you to do something that went against what you knew was right? Did you obediently follow? Did you resist? What DID you do?

In today’s episode of All God’s Women we look at Shiphrah and Puah, two midwives placed in a terrible position by their boss, the pharaoh of Egypt. To disobey his command meant they could be killed. To obey, however, meant they themselves would have to kill. As women positioned in a life and death situation, they chose life, even if it resulted in their own death. 

I’m excited today to introduce a new format to All God’s Women. I’m adding actors to add voice to the scriptures, and I’m bringing in experts, other speakers, authors, and Bible teachers to add their thoughts about each of our Bible women. I think you’ll agree it add a new dimension to our studies.
