God and the Violence Against Women in the Bible

September 18, 2014

In the Old Testament, God's violence against Israel's enemies was a way to show God's love for his people, but God's violence was also directed against Israel itself who was cast in the role of an unfaithful wife. How do we deal with the violence of God, especially as it is directed against women?
