In exploring the Bible as literature, the portrayal of women is usually viewed with suspicion because the text is assumed to be relayed through a male point of view. How much more so the Biblical characters who are not only women but also non-Israelites?! Focusing on those who are doubly “other” offers a unique opportunity to explore Biblical values as well as the fears and fantasies that animate the text and our interpretations.
