Thank you so much Allison. I saw you wrote a piece about that Passover experience. I love a girl on a journey.
I have a Jewish friend at the local Starbucks who was talking about the idea of the female being so highly valued in the Bible & had never heard it before. Rob Bell notes his own different take on the Christian journey started with learning more about Jewish references and views.
We live in the aftermath of the Holocaust, the Dead Sea Scrolls, the enormous Jewish effort to study Hebrew in view of re-animating it. These created an opportunity for Christians to know the Bible in a way the anti-Semitic tradition had prevented.
