Men and Women in the Body of Messiah – paperback


SKU: B155P Category:


One of the biggest, divisive issues in contemporary theology, involves women in ministry. There are denominations which support females serving alongside of males as co-leaders of the assembly, ordained as pastors, and there are other denominations which strongly oppose females serving in such a capacity. When it comes to marital relationships, there are those who believe that a husband leads the family while the wife follows behind him, and there are others who support partnership marriages where husband and wife are co-leaders of the family. How should today’s Messianic movement best approach this?

This resource, Men and Women in the Body of Messiah: Answering Crucial Questions, is divided into two main discussions. The first part, “Answering Evangelical Questions,” familiarizes today’s Messianic people with the evangelical Protestant debates that have taken place between complementarianism (equal in value, separate in roles) and egalitarianism (equal in value, open in opportunities). The second part, “Answering Messianic Questions,” discusses how the issues involving women in ministry, marriage, and singleness, have been approached in our faith community. A third part of this resource, “Is Polygamy for Today? The Case Against Polygamy,” forthrightly addresses the blight of plural marriage that has manifested in various sectors of the independent Hebrew/Hebraic Roots movement.
