Rabbi Kaplan,

Thank you for today's study on women prophets of the Torah. By the prophetic you mean an utterance of the moment that can have significant future revelation, and not the office of the prophet that Isaiah, Samuel, Elijah, Ezekiel, and Jeremiah [to name a few] was anointed to operate in where they were led by the voice of G-d.

I must have missed you speaking about Queen Esther. You spent a great deal of time on Abigail and some on Bathsheba. Nevertheless, I look forward to hearing a more indepth study of Huldah. I would like a more indepth study on Bathesheba as well. I thought of Bathesheba as a victim whose Uncle Ahitophel tried to avenge when he joined forces with Absalom to overthrow King David's monarchy. What do the sages say about this? Anyways, each of these women Esther, Abigail, Huldah, Bathesheba, Deborah, deserves full focus. And I would love to hear the sages interpretation of these events chronicled in the Tanakh. A very interesting lesson.

Thank you! Reply
