Abstract Title

Legalism and Women: Rethinking Women’s Roles Within the Church

Abstract

This research paper explores the oppression of women within the Christian community. Through looking at biblical interpretation and theological ideas this paper uncovers the root and cause of violence against women that keeps them spiritually oppressed and inhibits their flourishing. Using analysis of scripture and exegesis of Biblical text, both in original Greek and in translation, I found mistranslations and interpretation of text that lead to the limitation of women's roles within the Church. I contend that these limitation do not let women to flourish spiritually, thus inhibiting their own point of salvation.
