What does the Bible say about the roles of men and women in the public worship assembly? Wes McAdams again joins Lee and Kevin, from the Exploring Faith, Pursuing Grace Podcast, to continue their discussion on what the Bible says about the roles of men and women.
If you haven’t yet listened to Part 1 of this conversation, you will definitely want to listen to that episode first. In the previous episode, the biblical foundation was laid for the “complementarian” position concerning gender roles. In this episode, Wes explains how these foundational principles apply to teaching and preaching in the worship assembly.
Does the New Testament send mixed messages about the role women should play in the church? Galatians 3:28 says, “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” But 1 Timothy 2:12 says, “I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet.” How are we to reconcile these sorts of passages with one another?
We hope and pray this conversation is beneficial, and even encouraging, to both men and women.
