A-Z: Common sayings from the Bible: Born of woman


Human, mortal and imperfect. 'Not of woman born' is an important phrase in Shakespeare's Macbeth, and 'Of Woman Born' is the title of a book of essays on motherhood by Adrienne Rich.


Humanity is imperfect and fallible. In the New Testament this phrase is echoed in Galatians 4:4, where Paul teaches that Christ's human obedience redeems human nature.
