The Fate of Jephthah’s Daughter

The Sacrifice of Jephthah’s Daughter
by Francisco Goya (1774)

A reader sent an email asking me to discuss the passage in Judges 11:29–40 dealing with the fate of Jephthah’s daughter.

I have already written three posts on this subject. I refer the reader and those interested in this subject to read those posts:

2. Judges 11:39: The Fate of Jephthah’s Daughter

3. Judges 11:39: The Virginity of Jephthah’s Daughter
