It took a year to read the Bible, then almost 9 months to read the Apocrypha. Now, I'm going to try to offer reflections on the Narrative Lectionary. But, I won't be posting daily--at least, for a while.

Reading Judith 14-16

Judith directed them on what they were to do next. Her advice worked. The Assyrians fleed from them. The people sang a hymn of praise for her.

Denise Dombkowski Hopkins in Women's Bible Commentary lists the varying ways that Judith has been interpreted:  Femme fatale, female warrior, feminist heroine, virtue personified, lying murderer, saintly beauty
