Thought provoking for sure. I never thought of the Bible as ‘anit-woman’…but I can see how some people may think that.
That was a very good answer! Thank you for sharing that =)

Indeed, the Bible actually seems to undercut most of the misogyny of its day, since Paul seems to treat woman as equal with men and the Gospels show a number of female characters at key parts of the narrative. Rather than being anti-woman, the Bible actually upholds and protects full womanhood.

If one ignores the egalitarians misinterpretation of Galatians 3:28 and reads the paragraph they see that Paul is saying that women are full heirs of the promise of Abraham (Gal 3:29). How astounding is that! In Christ, women receive the full inheritance. In that culture it was the eldest son who received the full inheritance. Now, in Christ, men and women are identified with the eldest Son and will be co-heirs with Him. Paul sky rocketed the value of women.
