2020-08-23 Religion Today – Misconceptions About Women in Early Christianity

Women in Early Christianity owned about one-third third of all property, owned businesses, slaves, sometimes ruled the household and held positions of authority in the Early Christian Church.  While it is true, as long as a woman’s father was alive, she was subservient to him, the same is true of men.  1 Timothy 2:12 and 1 Corinthians 14:34 (let women be silent in the Churches) are not likely genuine Bible verses (according to Prof. Bart Ehrman and other NT scholars).  Learn the misconceptions about women in the Early Christian Church in this episode of Religion Today.
