“The Bible has a much deeper, richer description for a widow than simply a woman whose husband has died. . . . [A widow], in the biblical context, is a woman bereft of the full provision and flourishing that could be provided by a husband or a family. It’s her condition that scripturally qualifies her as a widow, not the circumstance that led her to that condition.” — K. A. Ellis
