Bible Think Tank

This site is designed to help you interact with others about God's Word. I further some thoughts we developed during morning and evening gatherings at church. I have my NT translations from the original Greek to English. Also, I have book reviews and other current events.

Greek for 8/26/07

This Week's Text

1 Corinthians 11:1-16

We will study this text together at Morning Worship on Sunday, August 26, 2007

Introductory Thoughts

Some interesting things to say about men and women... more accurately: husbands and their own wives. Don't get caught up in the external manifestation of headship and submission. Wrestle with the heart of the issue. A woman that wear head coverings could have no respect for her husband. A woman that does not wear one could have immense respect for her husband. So before we obey or discard Scripture based on a behavior, wrestle with the heart of the matter. In our present culture, a respectful wife is ten times more noticeable than a covered wife. That being said, I'm cool with a woman if she chooses to OR if chooses not to wear a head covering. Let's be completely honest here: women have stopped respecting their husbands and men have stopped being respectable. And now, the text:

1 μιμηται μου γινεσθε καθως καγω χριστου 2 επαινω δε υμας οτι παντα μου μεμνησθε και καθως παρεδωκα υμιν τας παραδοσεις κατεχετε 3 θελω δε υμας ειδεναι οτι παντος ανδρος η κεφαλη ο χριστος εστιν κεφαλη δε γυναικος ο ανηρ κεφαλη δε του χριστου ο θεος 4 πας ανηρ προσευχομενος η προφητευων κατα κεφαλης εχων καταισχυνει την κεφαλην αυτου 5 πασα δε γυνη προσευχομενη η προφητευουσα ακατακαλυπτω τη κεφαλη καταισχυνει την κεφαλην αυτης εν γαρ εστιν και το αυτο τη εξυρημενη 6 ει γαρ ου κατακαλυπτεται γυνη και κειρασθω ει δε αισχρον γυναικι το κειρασθαι η ξυρασθαι κατακαλυπτεσθω 7 ανηρ μεν γαρ ουκ οφειλει κατακαλυπτεσθαι την κεφαλην εικων και δοξα θεου υπαρχων η γυνη δε δοξα ανδρος εστιν 8 ου γαρ εστιν ανηρ εκ γυναικος αλλα γυνη εξ ανδρος 9 και γαρ ουκ εκτισθη ανηρ δια την γυναικα αλλα γυνη δια τον ανδρα 10 δια τουτο οφειλει η γυνη εξουσιαν εχειν επι της κεφαλης δια τους αγγελους 11 πλην ουτε γυνη χωρις ανδρος ουτε ανηρ χωρις γυναικος εν κυριω 12 ωσπερ γαρ η γυνη εκ του ανδρος ουτως και ο ανηρ δια της γυναικος τα δε παντα εκ του θεου 13 εν υμιν αυτοις κρινατε πρεπον εστιν γυναικα ακατακαλυπτον τω θεω προσευχεσθαι 14 ουδε η φυσις αυτη διδασκει υμας οτι ανηρ μεν εαν κομα ατιμια αυτω εστιν 15 γυνη δε εαν κομα δοξα αυτη εστιν οτι η κομη αντι περιβολαιου δεδοται αυτη 16 ει δε τις δοκει φιλονεικος ειναι ημεις τοιαυτην συνηθειαν ουκ εχομεν ουδε αι εκκλησιαι του θεου.

1 Become an imitator of me just as I also am of Christ. 2 Now I praise you all that you all remember me also, since I commend you all, you hold fast to the traditions. 3 But I wish you all to know that Christ is the head of all men, so the man is the head of the woman, so God is the head of Christ. 4 Every man while praying or prophesying having down from a head dishonors his head. 5 and every woman while praying or prophesying [with] an uncovered head dishonors her head. For in the same way also is the one having been shaved. 6 For if a woman is not covered, also she should shave herself. But if it is dishonorable to shave or shear a woman, she should be covered. 7 For a man on the contrary is not bound to cover the head being a representation and a glory of God. But a woman is a glory of man. 8 For man is not from a woman but a woman from a man. 9 For also man was not made through the woman, but a woman through the man. 10 Because of this a woman is bound to have an authority upon the head because of the angels. 11 However, neither a woman [is] apart from a man nor [is] an man apart from a woman in the Lord. 12 For just as a woman is from the man so also the man is through the woman. But all are from God. 13 In these things you all judge. Is it proper for a woman to be uncovered while praying to God? 14 Does not even nature itself teach us that, on one side, if a man should have hair it is a dishonor to him? 15 And on the other, if a woman should have hair it is a glory to her? Since hair has been given to her as a covering. 16 But if a certain one thinks to be contentious, we have no other custom, nor the churches of God.

An Invitation

You would be shocked to know how many people at my church have asked me or my wife: "what is Tim going to say when you get to this section?" Well before I say anything, what do you think about men, women, head coverings, and headship?
