Ben Witherington III - Women in Ministry Part One

Women in Ministry Part One

Watched these this morning. I think Ben Witherington argues really persuasively (as persuasively as you can in seven minutes) for reading the trajectories of the New Testament: In the world of the New Testament Church "... everything was geared to a male centered kind of world. So when you're looking at the New Testament and what it says about women and their roles... what you need to look for is not primarily affirmations that women were part of a man's world... what you need to look for is trajectories of change and difference."

After this I'll also post the second video, which deals more specifically with the ministry of women in the New Testament.
