I was reading about this Goddess on line here are a couple of things;
“Taweret - The Great Female - was the ancient Egyptian goddess of maternity and childbirth, protector of women and children. Like Bes, she was both a fierce demonic fighter as well as a popular deity who guarded the mother and her newborn child.”
It was in her role of a protector that she was seen as a goddess. As the mother hippo is protective of her young, Taweret was believed to be protective of Egyptian children. She was often shown holding the sa hieroglyph of protection or the ankh hieroglyph of life. She was thought to assist women in labor and scare off demons that might harm the mother or child.
So I was thinking maybe the women started having problems carrying their pregnancies full term after the statue was destroyed. But what would this have to do with Jacob and his nemesis? Trying to make sense of the meaning of the Goddess statue hurts my head. Anyone with any thoughts on this?
