1 Corinthians 11:2-16
This is one of the most challenging passages in the New Testament to interpret. Paul is speaking to a cultural situation that we find difficult to reconstruct and hard to understand. However, the principles we can glean from this passage on women’s head coverings and propriety in corporate worship are very helpful for our world, which is confused on the subject of gender. Paul is teaching us about God’s pattern for men and women. In this passage, we see God-ordained differences and complementary designs. When we align ourselves with God’s truth, humanity flourishes.
