there a reference to the Holy Spirit as “mother eagle” in the Book of Isaiah? If
may be thinking of Deuteronomy 32:11 which says, “As an eagle incites its nestlings
forth by hovering over its brood, so he [God] spread his wings to receive them and
bore them up on his pinions.” In fact, the eagle here is a mother eagle.
The Book of Isaiah has at least three
references to God using feminine imagery: God’s anguish for the Israelites is like
that of a woman giving birth (42:14); God cherishes them with a mother’s love (49:15);
and “As a mother comforts her son, so will I comfort you” (66:13).

images of God in Women and the Word: The Gender of God in the New Testament and
