The Church and the Christian Woman


Jesus and the Woman of Samaria at Jacob’s WellThe Church and the Christian Woman

How Just and Fair is The Bible to The Christian Woman? An Inquiry Epistle to the Churches of Christ around the World and the Comparative Study of the Spiritual, Practical and the holistic interpretation of Paul’s letter to Corinthians(1 Cor 14:34-36) and the doctrine of equality as set out in Galatians 3:26-28.


God is just and the fairness in Him was demonstrated when He sent His only begotten son- Jesus, to the world so that we might not forever be under bondage. Acts 17:31 puts it this way: “because He has fixed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness through a Man whom He has appointed, having furnished proof to all men by raising Him from the dead.” The faithful and righteous Job provides at Chapter 34:17: “Shall one who hates justice rule? And will you condemn the righteous mighty One. In Job Chapter 36:6, it is stated that “He does not keep the wicked alive, But gives justice to the afflicted. The Book of Hebrews 6:10 has this to say: “God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.” The phrase “your work” here could relate to both man and the woman. In Ecclesiastes 3:17, it is said: “God will bring into judgment both the righteous and the wicked, for there will be a time for every activity, a time to judge every deed.” The interpretation here could be that irrespective of our gender or whether or not we are within or outside the Church- righteous or disobedient and here, within the congregation or in the world, the just and righteous God will pass judgment on our deeds on this planet earth. So, how fair and just could the words of a mortal Apostle Paul, be, if it had sought to stifle the voice of the Christian Woman?


There are many academic/religious debates which indeed are not within the scope of this article regarding why Jesus, perhaps, in order not to offend his Jewish tradition or probably, on the basis of the fragility of the metabolism of the woman, decided not have a woman among his Twelve Disciples who formed the nucleus of early Christian work. Truth is, Jesus himself broke what appeared then as “religious inequality or discrimination” when as the John’s account [John 4] puts it, he gave audience to what had been described by Bible scholars as one of the longest evangelical encounter of the Messiah with a woman when even at the distaste of the 12, he spoke to the Samaritan Woman at the Jacob’s well.
