WOMEN AS PROPHETS “PROPHETESS”

WOMEN AS PROPHETS “PROPHETESS”

Holy Land Man searched and found that word “prophetess” or “woman prophet” (nevia נביאה) is ascribed to the most known women prophets in the Old Testament

Holy Land Man searched and found that word “prophetess” or “woman prophet” (nevia נביאה) is ascribed to the most known women prophets in the Old Testament: 

  1. Miriam 

“Then Miriam the prophet, Aaron’s sister, took a timbrel in her hand, and all the women followed her, with timbrels and dancing.” (Exodus 15:20)

  1. Deborah 

“Now Deborah, a prophet, the wife of Lappidoth, was leading[a] Israel at that time.” (Judges 4:4)

  1. Huldah 

“Hilkiah the priest, Ahikam, Akbor, Shaphan and Asaiah went to speak to the prophet Huldah, who was the wife of Shallum son of Tikvah, the son of Harhas, keeper of the wardrobe. She lived in Jerusalem, in the New Quarter.” (2 Kings 22:14) 

“Hilkiah and those the king had sent with him went to speak to the prophet Huldah, who was the wife of Shallum son of Tokhath, the son of Hasrah, keeper of the wardrobe. She lived in Jerusalem, in the New Quarter.” (2 Chronicles 34:22)

  1. Noadiah 

“Remember Tobiah and Sanballat, my God, because of what they have done; remember also the prophet Noadiah and how she and the rest of the prophets have been trying to intimidate me.” (Nehemiah 6:14)

  1. Isaiah’s wife 

“Then I made love to the prophetess, and she conceived and gave birth to a son. And the Lord said to me, “Name him Maher-Shalal-Hash-Baz.” (Isaiah 8:3)

  1. Anna 

“There was also a prophet, Anna, the daughter of Penuel, of the tribe of Asher. She was very old; she had lived with her husband seven years after her marriage, and then was a widow until she was eighty-four. She never left the temple but worshiped night and day, fasting and praying. Coming up to them at that very moment, she gave thanks to God and spoke about the child to all who were looking forward to the redemption of Jerusalem.” (Luke 2:36-38)

  1. Philip’s daughters

“He had four unmarried daughters who prophesied.” (Acts 21:9)

Proof of Women that Prophesied

Miriam claims that the LORD “has spoken” through her:

“Has the Lord spoken only through Moses? they asked. Hasn’t he also spoken through us? And the Lord heard this.” (Numbers 12:2) 

Deborah relayed to Barak what GOD has revealed:

She sent for Barak son of Abinoam from Kedesh in Naphtali and said to him, The Lord, the God of Israel, commands you: Go, take with you ten thousand men of Naphtali and Zebulun and lead them up to Mount Tabor.” (Judges 4:6) 

Huldah had a prophetic revelation:

She said to them, This is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: Tell the man who sent you to me” (2 Kings 22:15)

In this regard, a “prophetess” is similar to her male counterpart, the “prophet” (nābī’).

Part 4/8 How And Why GOD Created The Woman?

Note that all general claims and observations by Holy Land Man refer to the vast majority of 70-90% and never to the 100% and so the assertion that “women are…” never refers to 100% but to 70-90%.
