When it comes to strong and crafty women, the Bible has many to choose from. Judith snuck into the tent of an enemy general and sliced off his head. Miriam danced on the graves of the Egyptians who had enslaved and slaughtered her people. And then there's Lilith, the maybe-apocryphal first wife of Adam who sprouted wings and turned into a demon, not unlike the biblical stories of violent archangels.

What makes a Biblical woman strong? Some acted as leaders, like Deborah, who led the Israelites to victory against their enemies. Others used their craftiness to protect their people and save lives. And both Mary Magdalene and the Virgin Mary supported Jesus with their strength. For their brilliance and their craftiness, these women hold a special place in the Bible.
