N.T. Wright on Women in Ministry

Posted by in Facebook's Pentecostal Theology Group View the Original Post

Bishop Wright advocates for the full participation of women in the life of the Church. Citing the examples of Junia as an apostle and Phoebe as a deacon in Romans 16, and the commissioning of Mary Magdelene as the first person to announce the resurrection of Jesus in John 20, he believes that the biblical evidence supporting women in leadership is overwhelming. Part of an interview by Dr. Tod Bolsinger, Senior Pastor of San Clemente Presbyterian Church, at the Pastors Retreat of the Los Ranchos Presbytery held at the Serra Retreat Center in Malibu, CA. Bishop N.T. Wright is the Bishop of Durham in the Church of England.

    I grew up with a lady pastor and have never had a problem with females in leadership.

      I like N.T. Wright but many of his books are quite massive. His newer books are shorter and easier to read.

      Turf protection and worry about who gets paid leads to a lot of the arguments against women in ministry.

    The first person to deliver the resurrection message was instructed to do so by an angel and was a woman. After all what is a sermon other than delivering a message that God has given to us? Why there are so many women preachers “Because there are not enough men who will answer the call!” Ezekiel 22:30 And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none. http://www.pentecostaltheology.com/egalitarian-vs-complementarian-views-on-women-in-ministry-in-pentecostal-theology-a-combined-discussion-on-tradition-and-praxis/

    This is an interesting discussion. I’m thinking this one through. How would one align this with Paul’s instruction to Timothy in 1 Tim. 2-3?
