Abstract: »The article demonstrates how the biblical writers view women and rape, and how the narrator of Judges 19 speaks outrage against rape, aimed at proving how such voices within the Old Testament (OT) are relevant and redeeming in the present day. Topics include a background and terminology related to prophetic literature, an in-depth look at the woman from Bethlehem, and how God's own voice of outrage against rape is heard through the verses in the bible.« (Source: EBESCOhost)
