comment “Surely not” vs “not surely” in Genesis 3:4
@Susan - Waltke and O'Connor provide no examples, which make for the difficulty in understanding. Thank you for the suggested edits.

Hello, Andy, and welcome aboard - please feel free to browse and contribute more posts. We like to see original analysis, because with so much written in academia, one can "cherry pick" the particular bias for which one is particular. So we ask you to provide YOUR analysis from the texts (and feel free to use academic sources). The point here is that YOU provide us YOUR analysis based on the primary source material at hand. Commentaries are not primary source material, and thus our preference for direct analysis of the Biblical texts. Thanks!

@Onlyheisgood. Please click here. In this post I relate how the authority of Deborah (in the Hebrew Bible) was correlated to Barak. Please read the comments in that post. So, yes, my hypothesis is that women may operate in tandem with men, but not independent of them.

@Onlyheisgood. I appreciate the magnitude of shame/honor in the Ancient Far East. We must not underestimate that our modern "eyes" miss these nuances in Scripture. However, the Greek believers in Corinth were dealing with sexual immorality and "power politics" in their congregation. One aggravating circumstance was the role of women (in general) in regard to speaking gifts, which had exercised authority over men (in general). Were women charged with the "glory" of wearing the crown of the authority of God? Or were the charged with the "glory" of wearing the crown of magnificence?

@Onlyheisgood. I checked the reference to Numbers 30, but that reference appears to relate to women and their relationship to their fathers and/or husbands. The issue in 1 Corinthians 11 appears to relate to women "praying and prophesying," which are speaking gifts relating to the authority of the Word of God. In other words, there are no daughters or wives in 1 Corinthians 11 making any vows, which are in turn overruled by the fathers and/or husbands. Also, there is no reference in Numbers 30 to the "glory" of the head (whether man or woman), which would help us to better understand 1 Cor 11.
