EL502― Women: The Problem Passages
Elective for MDiv or DMin― 1 credit. Prerequisite: BIP501- Biblical Interpretation: An Overview.
Do the well-known New Testament passages regarding the roles of women (1 Cor 11:1-16, 1 Cor 14:34-35, 1 Tim 2:9-15, Eph 5:18-33) actually teach the subordination of women in church and at home?
This 1-credit course centers on detailed exegetical studies of these ‘problem texts’ provided by a New Testament scholar with outstanding credentials in biblical interpretation.
Utilizing sound and imperative biblical interpretation and hermeneutical principles (often ignored), this study digs deep into these vital issues and brings needed perspective and insight from Scripture.
The course is both relevant and important in today’s Christian culture.
