Storyline

Her name is Dinah. In the Bible her life is only hinted at during a brief and violent detour within the more familiar chapters about her father, Jacob, and his dozen sons in the book of Genesis. Told through Dinah's eloquent voice, this sweeping miniseries reveals the traditions and turmoil of ancient womanhood. Dinah's tale begins with the story of her mothers: Leah, Rachel, Zilpah, and Bilhah, the four wives of Jacob. They love Dinah and give her gifts that are to sustain her through a hard-working youth, a calling to midwifery, and a new home in a foreign land. Dinah tells us of the world of the red tent, the place where women were sequestered during their cycles of birthing, menses, and illness; of her initiations into the religious and sexual practices of her tribe; of Jacob's courtship with his four wives; of the mystery and wonder of caravans, farmers, shepherds, and slaves; of love and death in the city of Shechem; of her half-brother Joseph's rise in Egypt, and of course her ...

Best Biblical Movie I Have Ever Seen
27 December 2014 | by raellen_haleSee all my reviews

I am a devoted Biblical researcher and minister. I have to say that I have never before seen a depiction of the Hebrew women of the Bible and their lifestyle more accurate than portrayed in this series! The Red Tent was written from the eyes of Jacob's daughter. It may have not had every aspect of Jacob's life, but then again it wasn't about him or any of these men, for once. It was about Dinah and the wonderful women in her life. This series was told in her voice. But I felt as if it was a collective voice of all women, who for years have been wounded and mistreated, as well as misrepresented in the Christian and Hebrew community for centuries. Many Hebrew women today live a similar lifestyle as depicted in the series, and many spiritual paths for women have been built on the same strength of faith and community as was shared by the women in the Red Tent. I also loved reading the rest of Dinah's story, because it was based on true accounts of other Hebrew women. I can almost feel as if I was there. And I have longed to know Dinah was alright. But,of course she was! She is the daughter of Leah and descendant of Eve. I wish Christian women would celebrate their own divinity the way these Hebrew women did! Thank you for the book and this series. Please make more like this.
