Ever wonder “what to say when someone says wives should submit to husbands”? Check out this excellent and very accessible post. The series also looks great.

Here’s the conclusion, which is unpacked in the post so do take the time to read.

To Sum Up, What Should You Say?

  1. “Head” doesn’t imply authority. Instead, it means that at creation, women came from men. In the new, resurrection creation, the church comes from Jesus Christ.
  2. All Christians should submit to each other as part of a life of worship.
  3. Because wives and slaves suffered unjust power imbalances, they should direct their submission to Christ, rather than human authorities.
  4. Because Jesus became one flesh with us in the incarnation, he can be our kephale in the resurrection.
