One of my supporters has very kindly transcribed this video, discussing aspects of the case against women’s ordination. I don’t have time to transcribe my videos myself, so anyone willing to volunteer to transcribe one video every week or fortnight would be greatly appreciated! The transcript is very lightly edited at a few points for the purpose of comprehension.
The story of Hagar found in Genesis 16 reminds me of the Samaritan woman in John 4. Both accounts involve a woman who is (in some sense) cast out from the Abrahamic community. She is met by God in visible form at a spring/well, and responds by praising his seeing/knowledge about her life. Has anyone else commented on this parallel before, or is it a bit too “fanciful” to be helpful?
How would you summarize the argument against the ordination of women?
Another clip from my Theopolis Institute lectures, this time on marital themes and some of Jesus’ encounters with women in the gospels.
