Men's and Women's Roles in the Bible

Did God design men and women differently for a good reason? What are the roles of men and women according to the Bible? What role should culture have in shaping these roles?

Men and women have abused their God-given roles, causing many to doubt the wisdom of following the Biblical roles for men and women. In addition, great efforts have been made to reinterpret Scripture to allow for modified roles. But, when God's original design is rightly understood and implemented, the best results are achieved and great suffering is avoided.

The following series of articles study men's and women's roles in the Bible, and specifically as they relate to women in ministry in the church. They address the question of whether or not women should be ordained as elders and pastors.
