“This week we are looking at some of the most controversial stories in Genesis, concerning three women who all had a part to play in God’s salvation plan – Leah, Dinah and Tamar. To put them in context – Leah was one of Jacob’s wives, Dinah was her daughter, and Tamar was Leah’s son Judah’s daughter-in-law.
This study is going to look at how through some truly awful family incidents, God was at work in the lives of these women. These true stories are not merely a series of events but a connected progression of circumstances through which God reveals his plan for our redemption in Jesus.
We will see that God cares for each and every individual, even those who might have considered themselves of no account, and that each one, despite their faults, had an important role to play in the outworking of the purposes of God.”
