What, if anything, does the Bible actually say or imply about gender relations given the material world of Scripture? This series is meant to cover what many Bible readers lack: a basic understanding of the daily lives of people described in the biblical texts and how that matters in discerning the biblical prescriptions.
These articles will critique and engage with some of the contemporary Western church’s common assumptions about this topic from the perspective of the biblical authors. The immediate goal is to clarify what these ancient men and women actually did in their daily and ritual lives, and how those activities were gender-delineated, if at all.
