Who Was She? Introducing Yahudith (Judith)

Yahudith – Who Was She?

The story of Yahudith (Judith) is one that makes me feel proud to be a YAHUAH fearing woman!  She was B-A-D, virtuous, wise, beautiful, strong, faithful, tenacious, cunning and more.  She feared, loved and worshipped YAHUAH.  She was a woman of prayer and fasting.

So how come many of us have never heard of her?

Her story (among others) is included Apocryphal books and in the Cepher which is a book that contains books that were not included in the canonized scriptures.  The book Yahudith was however included in the KJV 1611 scriptures.

So if you do not own a Cepher or an Apocrypha you can read the story here but I am going recount most of the story because there are important pieces of information throughout the story that should be pointed out. There is so much goodness in her story that I find myself wanting to shout for joy!  Nearly all of the bible heroes that we all know are men.  Does that mean that YAHUAH didn’t or won’t use a woman if He so chooses?  Let’s find out!

I pray to YAHUAH that you are as strengthened and encouraged as I was when I read her story.  May YAHUAH bless your hands!

Up next Part 1!
