I have been looking into the research Art D. Ehrman from the Department of Religious Studies from the University of North Carolina. He makes a very convincing argument that to me proves the bible verses that make women less human was not in the originals.
Paul called women by name some of the Women were taking the lead at Romans 16: 3-16 in verse 3 say fellow worker Prisca (WOMAN). Then verse 7 Junias (Woman) this is interesting some bibles including the New World Translation then says “who are men” or “Kinsmen” This is not found at all in the older Manuscripts so the New World Translation and any other translation is in error. At that time Junias was strictly a woman’s name and notice the verse said Junias was an Apostle. Actually older Manuscripts say foremost Apostle
. That would be liken to at least an Elder or a C.O. today.
What about 1Cor. 11:2-16 Paul say a Woman can teach with a head covering but at 1 Cor 14: 36-40 says the opposite that she has to be silent, never teaching. The verse found at 1Cor 14: 36-40 was not Paul’s words but was added by a scribe to give credence to the MALE dominated Society and give the Roman Church the right to take power from the woman and dominate her.
There so much proof that women shortly after Christ not only taught but where the foremost teachers in most cases. By the large part men did not except Jesus at first but the Women did, they flocked to the new teaching by the groves. Think about it, dominated for thousands of years by men then this charismatic leader removes all that away. It must have been great for the women finally be valued.
