The status quo typically favors one ground over another. So if the way things are will never change until Christ returns, those experiencing oppression and marginality today struggle to believe that the gospel is truly Good News for all. Christ calls us to live today as a preview of what will be true for all eternity.
It's not an exaggeration to say that misogyny is a matter of life and death. Our theology impacts women and men all around the world. Every woman is made in the image of God!
Explores the most prominent biblical, historical, and cultural arguments presented by both sides in the discussion around the ordination of women as pastors in Egypt.
This session explores differences in the way we communicate with male and female children and how these differences influence the way males and females learn to communicate with the opposite sex. We will examine the resulting difficulty men and women often experience in understanding each other and discuss ways we can avoid these destructive patterns. Based on empirical research, this session emphasizes that communication differences are a result of socialization, not to the oft cited idea that males and females originate on different planets or that we are different in our very essence.
How do we read and apply the Bible when we come to it with different assumptions than the ones that were current at the time it was written? Sometimes our assumptions need to be reworked, but sometimes our assumptions, such as the inherent equality, dignity, worth, and capability of men and women, are more in step with the gospel than those of the first century Roman world. This recording digs into the most important texts for understanding the ancient assumptions, shows how those assumptions at times influence how New Testament writers speak about gender, and develops some interpretive practices that can help the church embody the equality that is ours in Christ rather than allowing ancient values about gender to have the last word.
