Meet Rebekah

Rebekah is the daughter of Eleazar, a shepherd living near Bethlehem. She loves playing with the lambs as a child and picks flowers and makes chains with them to hang around her neck or put on her head. Her mother died in childbirth. Rebekah misses her terribly, but her father tends to dote on her - a rarity among first century Hebrew society.

She is strong and helps with the sheep, as well as working with the wives and daughters of the other shepherds. She sleeps under the stars at night around a camp fire with her father and their friends. Rebekah is safe and content under her father's watchful eyes until tragedy strikes and changes her future. She must live and work in her uncle, Benjamin's home as a servant.

Rebekah Redeemed is the story of a girl born to one of the young shepherds who witnessed the angels and the Christ child’s coming. Rebekah is taken to her uncle’s house in Bethany after her father’s death. Treated as a servant, she is traded from relative to relative; the young girl suffers through hard labor, neglect, and abuse. She meets Martha and Mary drawing water at the well each morning. The sisters offer her compassion. After a Roman soldier assaults her at her uncle’s home, she runs away in the night and hides in the barn behind Lazarus’ home. Is there no kinsman redeemer who can save her from this brutal life? She meets the Nazarene and hears his teachings. But can she forgive and forget? Will he change her, or will she remain a captive of her past?
