Giving Women of the Bible Their Due and Hearing Paul Anew is an ONGROUND ONLY Session 1 (7:00–8:15pm) course held at the Messianic Studies Institute (4950 Morse Road, Columbus, Ohio 43230) starting October 8, 2018.
A history of "her story" from Eve to Junia! The course opens with a sensitive unit designed to correct millennia of misinformation about women. We then highlight the typically bold manner in which women of the Bible step up, speak up, take action, and accept daunting risks as keenly observed by Lindsay Hardin Freeman. The course concludes with a study of Paul's most controversial statements about women heard anew in their first-century context.
