At EASTER: The Female Face of God

THERE’S A FEMALE SIDE OF GOD?

This is SOPHIA a mural by Adnate in the small Uniting Church in Goorambat 226 km from Melb. She represents the female side of the Holy Spirit. Is this even in the Bible? 

My friend who studies the Bible tells me Sophia (Σοφία) in Greek means wisdom. In the book of Proverbs by Soloman wisdom is personified and is female. In Proverbs Chs 7-9 wisdom is called a sister.

In the OT passages about the Spirit, the Hebrew noun is feminine. In Genesis 1:27 “So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them” which points to a female part/person of God.

Good God! No one ever told me that before.

  1. Atom is signature of neutral energy Zero we refer as God .
    Understanding atom we can understand God.
    protons are connected with nucleus so is our soul and nature of our soul is feminine and timeless .even In Islam , Allah says will give you love of thousand mothers .
    thanks

  2. Most people are content to say that God reveals himself as masculine, therefore only men may preach the Bible because women are easily decieved. The divine feminine often goes ignored.
