Age of Women (The).
Though many women are mentioned in the Bible, the age of only one (Sarah, Abraham’s wife) is recorded, and that to show at her advanced age she would become the mother of Isaac.   1
        “Elizabeth, the mother of the Baptist,” we are told by St. Luke, “was well-stricken in age.”
