Context Matters

Reading People in Context

Episode Summary

Dr. Lynn Cohick talks about her book Women in the World of the Earliest Christians. We start with how our modern context shapes how we read the Bible and then move on to explore the Greco-Roman world where status influenced everyone's life. We take that picture and talk about how to read the "Household Codes" of Ephesians in the correct context.
