It begins with Jesus Christ, moves to Paul, and highlights how various early church leaders’ insights into Paul’s teachings are helpful in guiding us to understand those statements as Paul intended them, namely as affirmations of women and their leadership roles in the church.

This illustrates a gradual shift away from the New Testament’s affirmations of the equal standing of men and women in Christ.
