    What book in the Bible was written by a woman?

    Lou Newton

    The book of Ruth was written well after Ruth had died. Look at the last passage:

    The Genealogy of David

    18 This, then, is the family line of Perez:

    Perez was the father of Hezron,

    19 Hezron the father of Ram,

    Ram the father of Amminadab,

    20 Amminadab the father of Nahshon,

    Nahshon the father of Salmon,

    21 Salmon the father of Boaz,

    Boaz the father of Obed,

    22 Obed the father of Jesse,

    and Jesse the father of David.

    David is listed as the son of Jesse. But not one of his brothers are listed. But no one knew David was to be King until Samuel anointed David. Not even Samuel knew until that day. So this had to be written AFTER Samuel anointed David. It it was written before there would be no reason to mention David and especially then to not mention his brothers.

    Also none of David’s sons are listed. So the book of Ruth was written after David was anointed King and before he had any children. Which means it was probably written by Samuel after David visited him and told him about his great grandmother Ruth.

    The Book of Esther was not written by Esther. Hardly any woman knew how to read or write. Very few men knew how to read and write. There are many details given that only the King, Mordecai and Esther would know. Esther could not write, the King had no reason to write the book, so Mordecai probably wrote the book.

    I do not consider the book of Judith to be a part of the Holy Scriptures.

    Considering all these facts I do not think any book of the Bible was written by a woman. I have nothing against women. They are my favorite kind of people. God has an even higher purpose for them than writing books of the Bible. The Only Begotten Son of God, Jesus never wrote a book.

    BTW, I can take no credit for the brilliant reasoning about when the Book of Ruth was written. I got that from reading a book written by Isaac Newton, the brilliant scientist, who wrote more about the Bible than he did science.

    Women are the most beautiful creation of God !
