DIG: Colossians 3:18-4:1

“Wives submit yourselves to your husbands, as is fitting the Lord.”

This is scripture and others like it have been used to do damage to the image of God inherit in women for a thousand years. We often choose to read over this scripture and others like it in an attempt to pretend they aren’t there. This week we press into the central question of Bible study: “What would the first readers have heard when they read this scripture?” We’ll deal with these texts head on and we find that they are more liberating than we may have imagined.
