UNST 236G Professor Michael Weingard 10/15/2017 A Proud Woman Who Wanted to Become a Mother Sarah is an interesting character. She is willing to be used to save her husband’s life. Her desperation to save her family line caused her to give Abraham her slave, Hagar. But she also is prideful and not willing to own up to her mistakes. Her goal in life is to give Abraham a son. To begin, she allowed herself to be used by her husband so that he could live, “And it happened as he drew near to the border of Egypt that he said to Sarai his wife, ‘Look I know you are a beautiful woman, and so when the Egyptians see you and say, ‘She’s his wife,’ they will kill me while you they will let live. Say please that you are my sister, so that it will go well with me on your count and I shall stay alive because of you’” (Genesis 12:11-14). But, this also resulted in her being taken, “And the Pharaoh’s couriers saw her and praised her to Pharaoh, and the woman was taken into Pharaoh’s house” (12:15). This happens twice (with separate rulers), and she never comments on the matter.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
