The Bible’s Female Visionaries
Some of the women in the Bible, mostly in the Old Testament, were great visionaries. These women played an important and vital part — not only in salvation history itself but also in the journey of faith.
Miriam: The first prophetess and the sister of Moses and Aaron. See Exodus 15:20.
Deborah: She prophesied the Canaanite defeat by Barak (Hebrew General of the Army who, with the help of Deborah, conquered the troops of Sisera, the Canaanite Commander). See Judges 4:4–9.
Huldah: Her prophecy brought about a religious revival under King Josiah. See 2 Chronicles 34:22–28.
Anna: The only prophetess in the New Testament. She lived to see the infant Jesus. See Luke 2:36–38.
