Marcus Grodi and Jim Anderson continue their discussion of Paul’s letter to the Ephesians by discussing verses 5: 21 & 32 and the hierarchy God intended for the masculine and feminine within marriage. (Part 1 of 3)
Today we begin studying some Scriptures that many Christians would just as well St. Paul had not written. Many look at these verses and then just merely ignor them as leftovers from a more primitive, less civilized age, plagued by ignorance and particularly chauvinism, claiming that they no longer apply to our modern enlightened society. Why this avoidance? Because these verses deal with marriage, family, and work, but particularly the more difficult issue of the hierarchical structure within the family. But just look around us, at the myriad of broken marriages and disfunctional families, and ask the quesiton, are we in fact more civilized and better off in this our modern enlightenmen? Maybe we ought to listen to the verses were discussing today on Deep in Scripture.
