Corinth, Women, and Rhetoric

Might some of the confusion over the role of women in 1 Corinthians stem from a failure to identify when Paul is actually quoting someone else’s opinion? My CHR 150 class addressed some of this last week when we discussed Paul’s teachings about spiritual gifts in 1 Corinthians 12–14. Scot McKnight goes even deeper as he describes some of Lucy Peppiatt’s conclusions in her new book, Women and Worship at Corinth. Interesting!

  1. If it’s of any interest to the discussion, I came across an old Jewish teaching that might explain what Paul’s reference was, when he was talking about being silent for the sake of the angels. (http://weekendfisher.blogspot.com/2015/01/silent-for-sake-of-angels.html)

    Take care & God bless
