Learning to thrive in the new life Jesus offers us – 2 Corinthians 5:16-17

Should Women be Silent in Church?

Women should remain silent in the churches. They are not allowed to speak, but must be in submission, as the law says. 1 Corinthians 14:34 (NIV 2011)

I love this video/slideshow in which Robin Jones offers an explanation of how 1 Corinthians 14:34 should be understood.  I find her explanation of “the law” compelling.

In the second half, Robin provides the background of Paul’s teaching in 1 Timothy 2:12-15.
