Women have traditionally been stereotyped as seductress, servant or a woman subject to man. However, Dr. Eugene H. Peterson, author of “The Message Bible,” (p. 989), “steps outside the stereotypes, giving insight into what it means to be a woman … It’s a picture of a person who is intelligent, confident, respected, honored, trustworthy, and a woman who is involved in humanitarian work and willing to take the initiative. There is power in that … Here in Proverbs 31, you have a picture of a woman who is not only intelligent, creative, and exciting, but kind, responsible and moral. Here is a woman who is free in mind, soul and spirit and worthy of dignity and praise … Here is where the Christian Message of Yeshua (Jesus) becomes Good News. Jesus Christ has freed all of us, men and women, with a new sense of identity. Each of us is looked upon as a unique person.” The King James Version states, “ If the Son therefore shall make you free ye shall be free indeed.” (John 8:36)
