What About the Maleness of Jesus?

Is that Significant?

Charles Read: What About the Maleness of Jesus?

God is not male and neither is the Spirit, but one cannot avoid the fact that Jesus was male. Does this make any difference to how Christians should think about gender issues? Some Churches argue that because Jesus was male, Christian leaders and pastors must be male to. Is this right? In this workshop we will look at these matters and see how the maleness of Jesus has sometimes been used in gender debates and what the early Church made of it. We will look at how Jesus related to women in his teaching and in his ministry and try to draw out some conclusions for today's church.
