Didasko

If you are a follower of this Blog you would probably be aware that I am a strong advocate for trained and godly women being allowed positions of authority within the local church, however mainstream Christianity is divided on this issue due primarily to one verse, 1 Timothy 2:12, which reads “But I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man, but to remain quiet.” The word translated as ‘teach’ in this passage is the Greek word Didasko and in this post we will be exploring whether Didasko is perfectly equivalent to the modern use of the word ‘teach’ or whether it was used by the biblical authors (especially the Apostle Paul) with a much more specific meaning in mind. 1,110 more words

Do Women Make Better Leaders?

It seems quite natural for me to think of or imagine women in leadership positions even though I grew up in a household where my mother was the homemaker. 745 more words
