Divine Order. New Testament. Man’s Role: headship. Gen 3:16 – “rule” 1 Cor 11:3 – “head” Eph 5:23-25 – “head” Eph 6:4 – “discipline and instruction” Gen 18:19 – “command children/household”. Woman’s Role: subjection. Eph 5:22 – “as to the Lord” Eph 4:24 – “in everything”
3 But I want you to understand that Christ is the head of every man, & the man is the head of a woman, & God is the head of Christ.
15 But women will be preserved through the bearing of children if they continue in faith & love & sanctity with self-restraint.
5 Now she who is a widow indeed & who has been left alone, has fixed her hope on God & continues in entreaties & prayers night & day.
Charm is deceitful & beauty is passing, but a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands, & let her own works praise her in the gates.
