Shippensburg, Penn., April 7, 2023 /Standard Newswire/ -- Based on historical evidence, Seth Knorr gives a compelling case that we are mistranslating Paul's apparent prohibition that women can't speak or teach in the church. Whether you are a scholar or layperson, the argument is presented in a way anyone can comprehend.
The book addresses an overlooked textual variant in two early and reliable Greek manuscripts. The variant reading provides the important context reversing how many understand Paul's apparent prohibition of women teaching in the pastoral epistles. The discovery is authenticated by commentary and two Greek scripture quotations from the early Church fathers.
The book also covers the following:
- Evidence that Phoebe was a deacon and overseer.
- Historical evidence of other women apostles, elders, and deacons.
- Biased lexicons and bible translations.
Many women are discouraged from fulfilling their God-given calling due to Paul's words being misunderstood and mistranslated. Seth delves into the evidence to show that Paul gives no such prohibition preventing women from being pastors. The historical evidence presents a solid and compelling case for women's ordination.
