34: Authority over a man

Part 5 on Christianity and gender. Nate and Tim begin to tackle 1 Timothy 2:12 and the line "I do not permit a woman to teach or have authority over a man" by considering the context of the letter, the significance of the goddess Artemis, and the Greek word translated as “exercise authority”. Once again we see that paying close attention to the gender passages in light of their original context opens up whole new avenues of interpretation.
