This Bible Study Series was produced and created especially by Biblesoft, for use in the PC Study Bible and OneTouch programs. It has been taken from articles and notes written for our Bible Study Blog, and been adapted for use as an electronic reference work. Originally created for publication online in the fall of 2018, it is divided into 12 separate studies, along with a number of special supplemental studies and notes, and can be used as (part of) a monthly or seasonal Bible study course. Each study provides in-depth analysis of the Greek (or Hebrew) text of Scripture, along with an extensive examination of the historical and culture background, questions of interpretation, and more!
This particular series deals with the difficult (and controversial) topic of the role of women in the Church. Opinions and feelings can run high on this subject, especially when one considers how different the ancient culture and thought expressed in the Bible often is from our modern social and cultural sensibilities. This series is an honest, objective, and in-depth study of the Scriptural evidence. Special attention is given to the most troublesome and debated sections from the Pauline letters, but a detailed survey of all the key passages from the Old Testament, New Testament is also included, along with important evidence and examples from the early Church.
Both the Study series and the additional notes function as a Commentary in the program, and can be accessed by verse directly under the Commentary menu.
We hope that you will find these studies to be rewarding, provocative, and inspiring!
