1 Jesus, Culture and Women The first message in our 9-week series entitled The Saviour Points the Way. Sunday, July 4, 2010 Speaker: David Brereton

2 The Saviour Opens New and Unconventional Roles for Women 2,000 Years Later the Christian Church Still Struggles to Understand

3 Matthew 19:8-9 Jesus replied, "Moses permitted you to divorce your wives because your hearts were hard. But it was not this way from the beginning. I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for marital unfaithfulness, and marries another woman commits adultery."

4 Daily Prayer of a Jewish Male Siman 46:4: A person must say the Blessings shelo asani goy (Who did not make me a non-Jew), shelo asani aved (Who did not make me a slave), and shelo asani isha (Who did not make me a woman) every day.

5 Past Christian Leaders John Chrysostom ( ): “The woman (Eve) taught once and ruined all…for the sex is weak and fickle, and he is speaking of the sex collectively” Augustine ( ): “Satan first tried his deceit upon the woman, making his assault upon the weaker part of the human alliance” Martin Luther ( ) “There was greater wisdom in Adam than in the woman…the serpent attacked the weaker vessel…just as he does today” John Knox ( ) “And finally, that the foolish and frantic shall govern the discrete, and give counsel to such as be sober of mind? And such be all women, compared to man in bearing of authority…” John Wesley ( ) “This verse shows why she ought not to teach. She is more easily deceived, and more easily deceives”

6 Surprise Quiz: Worth 10% of your final mark! Mark with an X those which only applied for the time period in which they were written…they don’t apply anymore Do not mark those which apply now…those which apply for all time

7 Quiz “God…said to them (Adam and Eve), ‘Be fruitful and multiply’” Gen:1:28 “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength” Deut 6:5 “When you have finished setting aside a tenth of all you produce…you shall give it to the Levite, the alien, the fatherless and the widow” Deut 26:12 “Greet one another with a holy kiss” 1 Cor 16:20 “Women should remain silent in the churches” 1 Cor 14:34 “Stop drinking only water, and use a little wine because of your stomach and your frequent illnesses” 1 Tim 5:23

8 Leaving Us an Example… Who loves most? Who provided for Jesus’ needs? Who is without sin? Who ordered this pizza? Who worships? Who doesn’t get it? Who does Jesus love? Who talks theology with Jesus? Who touches the heart of Jesus?

9 Galatians 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

10 Daily Prayer of a Jewish Male Siman 46:4: A person must say the Blessings shelo asani goy (Who did not make me a non-Jew), shelo asani aved (Who did not make me a slave), and shelo asani isha (Who did not make me a woman) every day.

11 Galatians 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
