Wayne Grudem

Here is an interesting site, it is a summary of Wayne Grudem responses to some of the the feminist claims to certain Bible passages.

Egalitarian claim 5.10: PRISCILLA TAUGHT APOLLOS: Since Priscilla and Aquila both explained to Apollos “the way of God more accurately” (Acts 18:26), women can teach men in the church. (177)
Answer 5.10a: Scripture encourages men and women to talk with each other about the Bible and Christian doctrine. (178)
Answer 5.10b: To say that there is no distinction between private and public teaching is to ignore the two fundamental factors of interpretation: the words of the text and the context. (178)
Answer 5.10c: Priscilla’s example does not give warrant for women to teach the Bible to the assembled church. (179)

    Right, when I heard Grudem on Focus on the Family last November criticizing the TNIV (and NLT), Grudem promoted the ESV which he helped translate as well as his Council for Biblical Manhood and Womanhood.

    The profiles for all of the women associated with the Council list "homemaker" or "pastor's wife" ahead of anything else, but none of the men list "husband" or "father". The women's biographies seem contrived, then.

    As to the gender-inclusion issue, I bought a copy of the TNIV and also the resources from Focus but never really sat down to see for myself. It isn't really an issue that concerns me since I have an English translation of the Bible which bears ecclesial approval, at least at present.
