    17 JUN 2024 · In this episode of the Alabaster Jar, Dr. Lynn Cohick and Kelly Dippolito discuss the interpretation of 1 Corinthians 11:3 and the role of women in the church. They explore the Wesleyan quadrilateral as a tool for studying scripture and the importance of tradition and theology. They also examine the passage's meaning of the term 'head' and its implications for hierarchical relationships. Dr. Cohick and Kelly highlight the complexity of the verse and the various interpretations, including the possibility that Paul is countering bad teaching by the Corinthians.

It is important to consider the passage's cultural and historical context.  - Women are made in the image and likeness of God and have equal value and gifting in the church. It is important to affirm and support women in their roles and contributions. - Understanding the complexity of scripture and engaging in thoughtful interpretation can lead to a deeper understanding of God's word and a more inclusive and equitable church.  Episode Resources:  https://www.amazon.com/Women-Worship-Corinth-Rhetorical-Corinthians-ebook/dp/B00WAL6YPM?ref_=ast_author_dp https://www.visualmuseum.gallery/   Episode Sponsor:   The Alabaster Jar is brought to you by The Center for Women in Leadership, a newly formed 501©3 nonprofit organization whose purpose is to equip women in a context that is biblically rooted, theologically robust, and ethnically diverse to thrive as leaders in the academy and the Church.

  • Uncovering Women's Voices In Scripture: A Discussion On The Every Woman's Bible | With Dr. Carmen Imes

    6 MAY 2024 · In this conversation, Dr. Carmen Imes joins Dr. Lynn Cohick to discuss their involvement in creating a study Bible for women, addressing problematic passages, and answering objections to the Bible and Christianity. They explore the misconceptions surrounding the Proverbs 31 woman and the purity laws in Leviticus, providing insights into the cultural and historical context. They emphasize the importance of including women's voices and perspectives in teaching and preaching and the need for resources like the Every Woman's Bible to address women's questions and concerns. In this part of the conversation, Carmen Imes and Lynn discuss the concept of impurity in the Old Testament and how it relates to the bleeding woman in the New Testament. They also talk about the Every Woman's Bible and its accompanying app, Filament, which provides additional resources for studying the Bible.

The Old Testament addresses issues of impurity beyond menstruation, including long-term discharges and abnormal discharges in both men and women. - The Every Woman's Bible is a study Bible that focuses on women's issues and questions.

  • The Visual Museum Series: Mary Magdalene - A Model of Devotion and Discipleship

    2 MAY 2024 · In this conversation, Dr. Lynn Cohick and Kelly Dippolito discuss the Visual Museum of Women in Christianity, an online database showcasing women in church leadership roles through curated images. Dr. Cohick discusses the portrayal of Mary Magdalene in Italian art, her significance in Christian history, and interpretations of her character. They delve into her presence during Jesus' ministry, crucifixion, and resurrection, exploring artistic depictions and biblical narratives. The conversation examines societal interpretations of Mary Magdalene, her portrayal in art, and the challenges of negative stereotypes. Key Takeaways:  - It is crucial to have a solid understanding of the New Testament background to avoid misinterpreting biblical women. Mary Magdalene is described as an apostle, meaning she was sent by Jesus. - The idea of perpetual penance for sexual sin is an unfortunate and inaccurate portrayal of Mary Magdalene. - The representation of Mary Magdalene and the traditions related to her vary across different periods of church history. Mary Magdalene is highly respected in the Church and seen as a model of devotion and discipleship. - Misinterpretation and mislabeling of biblical characters can inadvertently silence their voices and agency.  https://www.visualmuseum.gallery/ The purpose of this collaborative project is to create a curated, permanent visual exhibit of women in the history, ministry, and piety of early, Byzantine, and medieval Christianity that will be available online for researchers, educators, and interested laypersons. This multi-year project aims to make the visual record of women in ministry and leadership available free of charge and without permission requirements. It will also include short teaching elements to guide the audience through the constitutive and pivotal role of women throughout Christian history. Together with the visual story, the accompanying narrative will allow patrons to learn about women throughout history and across the globe and their unique contributions to the life and faith of the church… A history that remains mostly untold.

  • Looking At The Book Of Job Through The Lens Of Trauma | With Dr. Michelle Keener

    29 APR 2024 · In this conversation, Dr. Michelle Keener joins Dr. Lynn Cohick to discuss her upcoming book “Comfort in the Ashes: Explorations in the Book of Job to Support Trauma Survivors” and her study of the Book of Job through the lens of trauma. She explains that trauma is a response to an event that overwhelms our ordinary coping capacity and leaves a wound that remains unhealed. Dr. Keener explores the retribution principle in the book of Job, where Job's friends try to impose their agenda on his story, blaming him for his suffering. She also highlights the importance of the book's shift from prose to poetry, symbolizing the rupture of trauma and the messy middle of the survivor's journey. The conversation explores the themes of trauma, justice, apology, forgiveness, and meaning-making in the book of Job. It discusses the silence of the unrepentant and the longing for justice and acknowledgment of trauma survivors. They also address the tendency to rush forgiveness and the lack of emphasis on repentance. The importance of providing a meaning-making space for trauma survivors is emphasized while discussing the naming and provision for Job's daughters at the end of the book which symbolizes positive change and hope while suffering.  Key Takeaways: ·        Trauma is a response to an overwhelming event that leaves an unhealed wound.  The retribution principle in the book of Job reduces our relationship with God to a business transaction, causing harm and insecurity. ·        Trusted listeners are those who can hear and listen to a survivor's story without imposing their agenda. ·        The shift from prose to poetry in the Book of Job symbolizes the rupture of trauma and the messy middle of the survivor's journey. Trauma survivors often long for justice and acknowledgment of their pain, including an apology from the person who caused the trauma.  The church sometimes rushes for forgiveness and neglects the importance of repentance, which can hinder healing and justice.  Creating a meaning-making space for trauma survivors to process their experiences and find their meaning is crucial for their healing.  The book of Job explores the tension between God as judge and adversary, reflecting trauma survivors' complex emotions and thoughts. Job's naming and provision for his daughters at the end of the book symbolize positive change and hope while suffering. Episode Breakdown: 00:00 - Introduction and Background 07:06 - Understanding Trauma as a Response 29:31 - The Silence of the Unrepentant 45:20 - The Symbolism of Job's Daughters Episode Resources:  https://www.amazon.com/Comfort-Ashes-Explorations-Support-Survivors/dp/1514010348/ref=tmm_pap_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&dib_tag=se&dib=eyJ2IjoiMSJ9.YJwdAoZCQFo4x8qYx2_c2AXwSOJAABuhiiWhn4NafBLUSPO3Swb8g_kowk8rx7_HqYQfxY6GnLAUbA2xgbb3-jVdBaS2bxfnCYZ2VMb4rDTPRU8b6HzDtWYxAvr26aocO5j85gX4qCxVMTBUTgJwY8acr9Ccnyv7L13xxJ_TkywEZUNnjJNYi8NREW9QBDa4cGFyYKP6K3js3YGEMOzMjAGQjjW5StL5TiJUfycvxfo.PHK8CFrRAUN1AJXHaAmGrzUsnJp3XznphrwMS6SRujw&qid=1714359356&sr=1-3   https://digitalcommons.liberty.edu/doctoral/4485/   https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0830851844?ref_=dbs_m_mng_rwt_calw_tpbk_3&storeType=ebooks&qid=1714360324&sr=1-1   https://www.amazon.com/Resurrecting-Wounds-Living-Afterlife-Trauma/dp/1481306790/ref=sr_1_1?crid=B663CCFJBJY0&dib=eyJ2IjoiMSJ9.irqk8sd2ZL4stKlA_33TXYM2DmNYP7NPWnCWaM8TA2XQU0U6Z64tCAJVMqxZ7EkCsOHyd8lt05pGdKH9o5fCl8wtrnMhhmeLmTNwnfjD_Gg2hHruSTvo9tN5m9cXMmmC.B_wo_YSMLb2HWGOquvfsfufRw-1bx0qulZrbddZ8Sls&dib_tag=se&keywords=shelly+rambo&qid=1714360385&s=books&sprefix=shelley+rambo%2Cstripbooks%2C99&sr=1-1   https://www.michellekeener.com/   https://www.visualmuseum.gallery/   Episode Sponsor:   The Alabaster Jar is brought to you by The Center for Women in Leadership, a newly formed 501©3 nonprofit organization whose purpose is to equip women in a context that is biblically rooted, theologically robust, and ethnically diverse to thrive as leaders in the academy and the Church.
