Six Silent Women of the Bible

February 27, 2015

JR Thorpe, writing a fun article for Bustle, looks at six biblical women who are silent in the Bible and imagines what they might have said in their particular circumstances.

Here’s Thorpe writing in the voice of Johnna:

“…she, Mary Magdalene, and the mother of James the disciple went to [Jesus’s] cave to clean his body, because dudes don’t want to touch icky bodily fluids. They discovered him gone, and some angels hovering being mysterious. When they went back in a panic to tell the guys, NOBODY BELIEVED THEM.

“What she’d say: ‘No, seriously, he was NOT THERE, why is it so hard for you idiots to believe this, JUST GO AND LOOK FOR YOURSELVES I AM DONE HERE.'”

Read “6 Silent Women In The Bible, And What They’d Say If They’d Been Given The Chance.”
