JEHOSHEBA
Name: "whose oath is the LORD"
Role: Helper. She helps her father by rescuing his grandson and helps her husband by taking the royal heir to the temple, where her husband dwells.

Jehosheba acted within the created order established by God, and in doing so, she preserved life. Athaliah stepped out of the godly order and destruction followed. Genesis 2:18
