From CBE’s 2022 Conference “Exploring the Fullness of Galatians 3:28” in Atlanta Georgia.
Tired of rehashing the same difficult texts and arguments about men and women’s shared leadership and authority in marriage? How about something new from Scripture that could revolutionize your discussion on the mutuality and equality of men and women in marriage and singleness? Walk with Ron Pierce through 1 Corinthians 7, the most extensive and explicitly egalitarian text in Scripture regarding this important question on one of the most neglected passages in the contemporary evangelical egalitarian debate. How should this passage affect your reading of the familiar Ephesians 5 references to submission and headship? Why is this text such good news for both men and women, for those who choose marriage and those who choose to remain single?
