The creation order of man first, woman second, as given in Genesis 2, is often brought up in discussions about the place of men and women in ministry and in marriage. What significance did Paul place on man being created first?
How are we to understand “man was not created for woman, but woman for man”? Does 1 Corinthians 11:9 indicate that service or submission is the role of women and not men?
In this short post, I look at what Paul meant by “A wife/ husband does not have authority of her /his body” in 1 Corinthians 7:4, a verse that has been terribly misunderstood by some.
