Episode 23: Gender, Genesis 3 and the Fall

Split Frame patreon main image.jpeg

We’re back at it again! Nick is in the midst of pastoral ministry AND Advent, so that has taken up a lot of his already limited free time. Allison is in the midst of taking over the world, one theological argument at a time. This episode, we tackle Genesis 3 and the notion of the Fall, especially as it relates to male and female relationships. No easy task!

Allison argues (rightly, duh) that

God, the source of life, desires for humankind to live interdependently with each other in worshipful connection to him. This is the picture painted by Genesis 3:16. Gender hierarchy is a result of the fall, when a man and woman who once faced one another as equals become separated from God. Without a savior, their relationship with God and one another will continue to be one of separation.

Thank you for listening, and to our two new patrons!

Episode 17: Women in and beyond Romans 16

Well it is a new year!

We both hope you all had a happy holiday (or Xmas for those who get mad at the word 'holiday'). Now that Nick has graduated, some interesting life changes have happened and we talk a bit about those events and potential events in this episode. We apologize for the delay, but we think you will understand more once you hear what we have to say.

For an excellent work on women in Romans 16, see the academic work of Mark Reasoner on Romans 16 in general, J. David Miller on the various interpretive options surrounding Phoebe in Romans 16:1-2, Clayton Croy on translational bias in Romans 16, Philip Payne on the equal standing of women in Scripture and on the "titles" of women in Scripture and Robert Hull on the women mentioned in Philippians 4:2-3. For excellent and practical scholarship and wisdom, we commend The Junia Project, Christians for Biblical Equality and Marg Mowczko to you.

Episode 15: Gender, Glory and Egalitarianism in Romans 1

Boom! In this episode, we tackle a highly debated text - although we do so with a different edge. While we affirm a fairly traditional reading of Romans 1, we come to some interesting conclusions that affect the evangelical gender debate - in a good way!

Nick also eats some gross jelly beans, and Allison sips some fireball whiskey.

Nick will someday avenge his honor and his sweet tooth.

Enjoy!

Episode 14: Eve Christology: Embodiment, Gender & Salvation

This is a recording of Allison's presentation she gave at Duke Divinity School in mid-August and at the Interdisciplinary Theology Conference in October. Since many of you have inquired about it, we decided to make it a podcast episode for all to enjoy.

Most importantly: will Nick get a good jelly bean or a bad one? You'll have to listen and find out.

Much thanks to those who have taken the time to rate us on iTunes!

So....enjoy!

Also, for those who are interested in a more broadly evangelical conference and theological association, see the Canadian-American Theological Association, where Allison and I are both members, and we both presented papers in October!

Our next episode will center on Romans 1:18-32 and Gender. Should be fun!

Episode 11: Red Wine, Narrative Hermeneutics, and Women in Luke/Acts

Welcome back!

It has been a while, hasn't it?

In this episode, Nick and Allison discuss the wide-ranging topic of women in Luke/Acts, touching on various elements of the doctrine of God, the Holy Spirit and Pentecost, how we should read narrative, and commenting on the evangelical tendency to downplay narrative in the quest for 'propositional' truths.

Allison also makes Nick (makes, hah!) drink cheap red wine in honor of a certain someone. You can infer who this might be, but we ain't telling.

Resources on the topic are vast, but the best English commentary on Luke is by Joel B. Green of Fuller Theological Seminary. A standout commentary that Nick says he reads for fun. A similarly great volume on the theology of Luke is also by Green.

Resources more relevant to the topic discussed in this episode include Gospel Women: Studies of Women Named in the Gospels by Richard Bauckham as well as his Jesus and the Eyewitnesses, which makes an appearance in this episode. For a killer article, see Nijay Gupta's excellent contribution in Priscilla Papers on Mary and The Double Message by Turid Karlsen Seim.

We hope to see you at the CBE Conference in Orlando! Blessings!

Episode 5: 1 Corinthians 7, Sacred Liquor, Marriage, Authority and Sexual Ethics

Well Happy New Year!

In this episode, Nick and Allison discuss Paul's most neglected treatise on marriage. We discuss sexual ethics, divorce, authority in marriage, and Allison tries a beer. Spoiler: she does not like it. At all. Don't worry, Nick will finally find a beer for her!

[No he won't]

Recommended resources include Ronald W. Pierce's article in Priscilla Papers. You can find it here. It is the best treatment of the text thus far. For academic articles on Priscilla Papers and their archives, see here. Christians for Biblical Equality and the Junia Project are great resources!

Episode 1: Introducing Gender Theology

Well, here we are.

In our inaugural episode, we talk about some of our journey into becoming egalitarians, as well as introducing "book corner" and Allison's research interest: theological interpretation of scripture! So we talk about hermeneutics, Paul and the Gift by John Barclay, our individual stories, and how some assumptions may play into one's exegesis of the Bible.

How's that for a hook?

This is the first time we've done a podcast together. If we are honest, we aren't the best at this. Nick toiled away for a while trying to fix some of the audio issues, and it sounds okay as of now. But, we have now figured out what to improve upon for next time.

We are totally beginners at this. Not at theology or anything like that, but at recording something together! Thanks for listening! Please share if you enjoy, or if you hate this and want to give us traffic, post it on your super conservative blog and give us what for.

Please don't ... but if you must ... that's fine.
