22 A. T HE A PPOINTED H EADSHIPS IN R EDEMPTION O RDER (P ART 2)I C OR. 11:3 A 1. The Role of Man's Headship in the Home.Eph. 5: The Role of Man's Headship in the Church.I Cor a. The Church is the Extension of the Home.Cf. Eph. 5:24, 25 But the Context of I Cor. 11 is not Extended to the Home: In the Home, i. Father rules. I Tim. 3:4 ii. Husband is Head of the Wife, Eph. 5:23b, 24a iii. Children Obey Parents. Eph. 6:1 In the Church: i. Elder rules. I Tim. 3:4, 5 ii. }Christ is Head (Universal) } Eph. 5:23a, 24b ii. }Man is Head (Local) } I Cor. 11:3 iii. Members "Obey them that have the rule over you." Heb. 13:17

23 2. The Role of Man's Headship in the Church. I Cor a. The Church is the Extension of the Home. Cf. Eph. 5:24, 25 I Cor. Chs – Context is the Church i. 7 occurrences of "Come together (in the church )" 11:17, 18, 20, 33, 34; 14:23, 26 ii. 10 occurrences of "church/churches" 11:16, 22; 14:4, 5, 19, 23, 28, 33, 34, 35 Thus: I Cor. 11:3 reads: KJV: I would have you know, that the Head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the Head of Christ is God. And Not: NRSV: I want you to understand that Christ is the head of every man (aner), nd the husband (aner) is the head of his wife, and God is the head of Christ.

24 2. The Role of Man's Headship in the Church.I Cor a. The Church is the Extension of the Home. Cf. Eph. 5:24, 25 b. The "Church" is the Exposition of I Cor. Chs c. The Conduct that is to be Exemplified in Church Gathering. As the Church is Subject to Christ, so is the Woman to the Man in the Church. I Cor. 11:2-16 i. The Woman's Relationship with the Man in a Church Gathering.  In Representing the Church's Submission to the Lord. I Cor. 11:3,7 cf. Eph.5:24 or Fallen Man ("the woman is the glory of the man") I Cor. 11:7  In Role-playing in the church: In the Symbolic covering of the head.11: 5, 6, 10, 13, 15  In the Responsibility of Learning in Silence and not Leading or Teaching.14:34-35 cf. I Tim. 2:11-15

25 c. The Conduct that is to be Exemplified … i. The Woman's Relationship with the Man in a Church Gathering. ii. The Man's Relationship with the Woman in a Church Gathering.  In Representing Christ's Headship over the Church. I Cor. 11:3, 7  In Role-playing in the church: In the Symbol of the Uncovering of the Head. 11:4, 7, 14  In the Responsibility of Leading and Teaching.I Tim. 2:12-15 iii. The Reason for this Chosen Representation by the Man and the Woman – the Creation Order. I Cor. 11  The Man is not of the Woman, but the Woman of the Man. 11:8 cf. Gen. 2:22  The Man was not created for the Woman, but the Woman for the Man. 11:9 cf. Gen. 2:18 The Woman is OF the Man, and the Man is BY the Woman. 11:12

26 iv. To Reflect the Designated Order. A Refusal to Observe is regarded as… For the Man – a Dishonour to his Head and a Shame to himself. 11:4 - Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoureth his head. 11:14- Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him? For the Woman – a Dishonour to her Head and a Shame to herself. 11: 5, 6, NRSV, any woman who prays or prophesies with her head unveiled disgraces her head—it is one and the same thing as having her head shaved. Similar to being Shorn or Shaven - 11:6 For if a woman will not veil herself, then she should cut off her hair. ct. v. 15 if a woman has long hair, it is her glory? For long hair is given to her as a covering. (peribolaion) Also cf. no flesh should glory in His presence. I Cor. 1:29 cf. 11:7, 15, 15

27 iv. To Reflect the Designated Order. v. To Reflect Decency and Order. I Cor.14:40 For the Man:  Orderly Participation and Preaching. I Cor. 14:26-33  Outward Public Prayer and Teaching. I Tim. 2:8, 12 For the Woman:  Symbolic Subordination. I Cor. 11:10  Silent Submission in Learning. I Cor. 14:34, 35; I Tim. 2:11-14 vi. To obey the Commandments of the Lord. I Cor. 14:36-38 cf. 11:2, 23  It is the Custom of All Churches. I Cor. 11:16; 14:33b cf. 1:2  It is to Reflect our Declaration of Obedience …  Not a Case for Contention by any person.I Cor. 11:16

28 Recapitulation. 1) Spiritual Headship is Attested to: a) With Physical Order. Cf. I Cor. 14:33, 40 b) With Personal Obedience. Rom. 13:1-3 cf. Heb. 5:8; Phil. 2:8 2) Submission to Headship is Acknowledged a) By Fulfilling God's Ascribed Relationships. b) By Functioning in God's Appointed Roles.

29 3) Symbolic Headship is to Attend Spiritual Headship a) Cf. The Baptism: The Symbol of Identification with Christ.Rom. 6:3-6 b) Cf. The Bread: The Symbol of Representation. i) For the Literal Body of Christ.I Cor. 11:23, 24 ii) For the Mystical Body of Christ.I Cor. 10:16 c) Cf. The Cup: The Symbol of the Blood of Christ. I Cor. 11:25 Hence, the Sign of Headship is the Appointed Uncovering of the Representative Head's head. I Cor. 11:7, 14 And the Sign of Submission is the Appointed Covering of the Subordinate's Head. I Cor. 11:6, 10

30 Conclusion: CHRIST, THE HEAD OVER ALL THINGS. I Cor. 15: )He must be Head over ALL His Church. 15:23 (Note: "the order") 2) He must be Head over ALL rule ALL authority and power15:24 3) He must be Head over ALL His enemies.15:25, 26 4) He must be Head over ALL things.15:27 5) He must subject Himself to God as Head Who put ALL THINGS under Him, THAT GOD MAY BE ALL IN ALL I Cor. 15:28
