‘Grace In The Time Of Revelation’ By C.L. McReynolds

In the Biblical story of Tamar, a brother who claims he is in love with her feigns illness to get Tamar to come to his room and forces himself on his terrified sister. Being the daughter of King David did not save her from the shame, the disgrace, of being an impure woman, especially when her rapist was the king’s heir and firstborn son. Tamar is cast out. Throughout her story, we are never told what happens to Tamar and are only given these events as they affect the men in her life, not Tamar herself. At the end, we only know that she left to live with her brother (the brother who would later murder her rapist to avenge her) as a destroyed woman.

This is Tamar’s story, her viewpoint and thoughts, four years after her rape.
