Gender and Hermeneutics in Paul (Pt 2) – Lucy Peppiatt

Episode: This is part 2 of our 2-part series on gender and hermeneutics in Paul. This episode covers Paul, m/f, hermeneutics, theology, and all the things. Lucy Peppiatt helps us think through the challenging issues at play in 1 Corinthians 11, territory we covered last week with Michael Lakey, but this time from a different angle. Lucy has thought long and hard about this passage, and talks with Matt L. about some of her groundbreaking work.

One thought on “Gender and Hermeneutics in Paul (Pt 2) – Lucy Peppiatt

  1. Hi,

    Just to say – I enjoyed this enormously.

    Also – as a white western male, I completely agree with Peppiatt’s view that her “rehabilitating” of Paul’s views of gender comes as a great relief. I have no desire whatsoever to dominate the women around me for any reason. (To be fair I long ago decided to intentionally disobey that bit of the Bible, come what may, even if the other view was correct).
