Season 12, Episode 5: Herodias

When looking at strong women in the Bible, everyone tends to think that they are a Ruth, but sometimes when we take a hard look in the mirror, we see that we might actually be more of a Herodias. Find out why in this episode as we look at the New Testament villain Herodias who has the power of privilege. Join us as we explore what happens when you fall victim to the no take-backs rule. (Spoiler alert, you just might end up with your head on a platter…)
