Winner of the “Interpreting the Word of God” article vote

I recently asked for readers of my blog and the members of my Facebook Group to vote for which chapter of the Steven Barabas FS they would like to see online. I had a large number of responses and a clear favourite soon appeared. I am pleased to be able to publish the “winning” article. I hope it was the one that you voted for:

 

Thanks again to Moody Press for this permission to use the chapter and to one of my supporters for donating the book.

Wayne Grudem on “Does kephale (“Head”) Mean “Source” Or “Authority Over” in Greek Literature? A Survey of 2,336 Examples”

The following article is now on-line in PDF:

Wayne Grudem, “Does Kephale (“Head”) Mean “Source” or “Authority Over” in Greek Literature? A Survey of 2,336 Examples,” Trinity Journal ns 6.1 (Spring 1985): 38-59.

This is an important article for those interested in the role relationships of men and women because it fatally undermines the oft-repeated and unfounded argument that kephale means ‘source’ and not ‘head’ in the NT. Grudem’s later article on this subject is also available on-line:

Wayne Grudem, “The Meaning Of kephale (‘Head’: ‘An Evaluation Of New Evidence, Real And Alleged,” Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society 44.1 (2001): 25-65.

I have recently added another article that addresses the issue from a complimentarian position that is worth a read:

The New Testament Teaching on the Ministry of Women (P.G. Nelson)

Breaking News: Jim Packer Suspended by his Bishop

The breaking news from Vancouver Canada is that Professor James I. Packer and David Short, rector of St John’s, Shaughnessy are facing what is being widely reported as ‘suspension’ from ministry. Please read the full article here. The article refers to several clips of Dr Packer on You Tube, which I have located and posted below. A line has been drawn in the sand tonight.
