The Key to the Dreaded Ephesians’ Passage
Description: You’ve been there, sitting uncomfortably in the pew, waiting for the lector to read the dreaded Ephesians passage, the one that speaks the culturally anathema, “Wives be subject to your husbands…” It’s a go-to passage for modern critics of Christianity and used to “prove” that Christianity subordinates women. This claim is, of course, preposterous and when the entire passage is understood the beauty of its teaching is revealed. We talk with Dr. Ben Wiker.
