MIRIAM THE PROPHETESS

From the April 1943 issue of The Christian Science Journal


We catch our first glimpse of Miriam by the banks of the Nile, covertly watching the floating cradle in which her infant brother Moses lay. While her exact age at this time is unknown, it is commonly supposed that she was a girl still in her teens; yet even here we can see something of that ready wit and innate capacity for leadership which she shared with her two prominent brothers.
