  • Uncovering Women's Voices In Scripture: A Discussion On The Every Woman's Bible | With Dr. Carmen Imes

    6 MAG 2024 · In this conversation, Dr. Carmen Imes joins Dr. Lynn Cohick to discuss their involvement in creating a study Bible for women, addressing problematic passages, and answering objections to the Bible and Christianity. They explore the misconceptions surrounding the Proverbs 31 woman and the purity laws in Leviticus, providing insights into the cultural and historical context. They emphasize the importance of including women's voices and perspectives in teaching and preaching and the need for resources like the Every Woman's Bible to address women's questions and concerns. In this part of the conversation, Carmen Imes and Lynn discuss the concept of impurity in the Old Testament and how it relates to the bleeding woman in the New Testament. They also talk about the Every Woman's Bible and its accompanying app, Filament, which provides additional resources for studying the Bible. Key Takeaways:  - Creating study Bibles specifically for women allows for exploring passages that are problematic or misunderstood from a female perspective. - The Proverbs 31 woman should not be seen as a checklist for women to aspire to but as a personification of wisdom in various domestic spheres. - The purity laws in Leviticus were not meant to be oppressive or judgmental towards women but rather had to do with their role in childbirth and the potential for life. - Including women's voices and perspectives in teaching and preaching is important for addressing women's questions and concerns. - Jesus' ministry challenged and transcended the purity laws, offering a new understanding of purity and healing. The Old Testament addresses issues of impurity beyond menstruation, including long-term discharges and abnormal discharges in both men and women. - The Every Woman's Bible is a study Bible that focuses on women's issues and questions. Its accompanying app provides additional resources.  Episode Breakdown: 00:00 - Introduction and Setting 01:27 - Creating a Study Bible for Women 06:02 - Understanding the Purity Laws in Leviticus 10:25 - Including Women's Voices in Teaching and Preaching 29:46 - Impurity in the Old Testament 33:23 - The Every Woman's Bible  Episode Resources:  https://www.amazon.com/Being-Gods-Image-Creation-Matters/dp/1514000202/ref=sr_1_1?dib=eyJ2IjoiMSJ9.uRgzvSU-fGh7kS354Umks5ei2qmC0OtqFIqMLjrRH7D3PyIPiv1XaAF3BnbL4_NOFiintcdCioUJFFpcowcDIfb1V7OtMPhfmVKX0OojE2YkgJdrtOhojLE0dF8pr9xdBDhKGLU-gv6oxC4qyOe5lkvrngyAoqWRESdoEmK_-mjyVBiMKc0eg3Pr4XaJ01WGQIPj7dnJJkBeYw6ZFK0Zyq8DV4_hs_NVdP6RUuEJJVM.tO5fl5oFI2_GlbQNHgkVwlpTH_ItsKtSsf28AAxI0WM&dib_tag=se&keywords=carmen+imes&qid=1714966344&s=books&sr=1-1   https://www.amazon.com/Bearing-Gods-Name-Sinai-Matters/dp/0830852697/ref=sr_1_2?dib=eyJ2IjoiMSJ9.uRgzvSU-fGh7kS354Umks5ei2qmC0OtqFIqMLjrRH7D3PyIPiv1XaAF3BnbL4_NOFiintcdCioUJFFpcowcDIfb1V7OtMPhfmVKX0OojE2YkgJdrtOhojLE0dF8pr9xdBDhKGLU-gv6oxC4qyOe5lkvrngyAoqWRESdoEmK_-mjyVBiMKc0eg3Pr4XaJ01WGQIPj7dnJJkBeYw6ZFK0Zyq8DV4_hs_NVdP6RUuEJJVM.tO5fl5oFI2_GlbQNHgkVwlpTH_ItsKtSsf28AAxI0WM&dib_tag=se&keywords=carmen+imes&qid=1714966391&s=books&sr=1-2   https://www.tyndale.com/p/nlt-every-woman-s-bible/9781496452993   https://www.youtube.com/@CarmenJoyImesPhD/featured   https://www.tyndale.com/sites/filamentbibleexperience/the-filament-app/   https://www.amazon.com/Jesus-Forces-Death-Matthew-Thiessen/dp/1540964876/ref=sr_1_1?crid=M072W30OX9RV&dib=eyJ2IjoiMSJ9.Fh2JNnzlS_aNLeIvUhEkKDUg7UBkIztutcsjXuiWhyQdljJN6wSeg8y1LBcbF-YMIuMqGhNrkopHytS_B_pyfXsbPMUekbCDBwB7GNkeBG9AEqhmyuDcqQwKakJeQCr1AtvHPc_07fAfhpsQrBz7h0gg_NQqEwmXnzvRgAkWqqiX1l6hLYtlUrDYhIqEkd1Him-AYwyj3fgY1V5nAlU13cXeuPTvWXVWtJsiLls6Uwo.Xor7tEcnQaVjWjF8ba8IUfOQ8EAigqKEohXA1QiCWLg&dib_tag=se&keywords=jesus+and+the+forces+of+death&qid=1714967199&s=books&sprefix=jesus+and+the+forces+of+death%2Cstripbooks%2C194&sr=1-1   Episode Sponsor:   The Alabaster Jar is brought to you by The Center for Women in Leadership, a newly formed 501©3 nonprofit organization whose purpose is to equip women in a context that is biblically rooted, theologically robust, and ethnically diverse to thrive as leaders in the academy and the Church.

  • The Visual Museum Series: Mary Magdalene - A Model of Devotion and Discipleship

    2 MAG 2024 · In this conversation, Dr. Lynn Cohick and Kelly Dippolito discuss the Visual Museum of Women in Christianity, an online database showcasing women in church leadership roles through curated images. Dr. Cohick discusses the portrayal of Mary Magdalene in Italian art, her significance in Christian history, and interpretations of her character. They delve into her presence during Jesus' ministry, crucifixion, and resurrection, exploring artistic depictions and biblical narratives. The conversation examines societal interpretations of Mary Magdalene, her portrayal in art, and the challenges of negative stereotypes. Key Takeaways:  - It is crucial to have a solid understanding of the New Testament background to avoid misinterpreting biblical women. Mary Magdalene is described as an apostle, meaning she was sent by Jesus. - The idea of perpetual penance for sexual sin is an unfortunate and inaccurate portrayal of Mary Magdalene. - The representation of Mary Magdalene and the traditions related to her vary across different periods of church history. Mary Magdalene is highly respected in the Church and seen as a model of devotion and discipleship. - Misinterpretation and mislabeling of biblical characters can inadvertently silence their voices and agency.  https://www.visualmuseum.gallery/ The purpose of this collaborative project is to create a curated, permanent visual exhibit of women in the history, ministry, and piety of early, Byzantine, and medieval Christianity that will be available online for researchers, educators, and interested laypersons. This multi-year project aims to make the visual record of women in ministry and leadership available free of charge and without permission requirements. It will also include short teaching elements to guide the audience through the constitutive and pivotal role of women throughout Christian history. Together with the visual story, the accompanying narrative will allow patrons to learn about women throughout history and across the globe and their unique contributions to the life and faith of the church… A history that remains mostly untold.

  • Looking At The Book Of Job Through The Lens Of Trauma | With Dr. Michelle Keener

    29 APR 2024 · In this conversation, Dr. Michelle Keener joins Dr. Lynn Cohick to discuss her upcoming book “Comfort in the Ashes: Explorations in the Book of Job to Support Trauma Survivors” and her study of the Book of Job through the lens of trauma. She explains that trauma is a response to an event that overwhelms our ordinary coping capacity and leaves a wound that remains unhealed. Dr. Keener explores the retribution principle in the book of Job, where Job's friends try to impose their agenda on his story, blaming him for his suffering. She also highlights the importance of the book's shift from prose to poetry, symbolizing the rupture of trauma and the messy middle of the survivor's journey. The conversation explores the themes of trauma, justice, apology, forgiveness, and meaning-making in the book of Job. It discusses the silence of the unrepentant and the longing for justice and acknowledgment of trauma survivors. They also address the tendency to rush forgiveness and the lack of emphasis on repentance. The importance of providing a meaning-making space for trauma survivors is emphasized while discussing the naming and provision for Job's daughters at the end of the book which symbolizes positive change and hope while suffering.  Key Takeaways: ·        Trauma is a response to an overwhelming event that leaves an unhealed wound.  The retribution principle in the book of Job reduces our relationship with God to a business transaction, causing harm and insecurity. ·        Trusted listeners are those who can hear and listen to a survivor's story without imposing their agenda. ·        The shift from prose to poetry in the Book of Job symbolizes the rupture of trauma and the messy middle of the survivor's journey. Trauma survivors often long for justice and acknowledgment of their pain, including an apology from the person who caused the trauma.  The church sometimes rushes for forgiveness and neglects the importance of repentance, which can hinder healing and justice.  Creating a meaning-making space for trauma survivors to process their experiences and find their meaning is crucial for their healing.  The book of Job explores the tension between God as judge and adversary, reflecting trauma survivors' complex emotions and thoughts. Job's naming and provision for his daughters at the end of the book symbolize positive change and hope while suffering.

  • The Visual Museum Series: The Contributors - Luce Foundation | With Dr. Bruce Hindmarsh

    11 APR 2024 · In this conversation, Dr. Bruce Hindmarsh joins Kelly Dippolito to discuss his involvement with the Luce Foundation and the grant that kickstarted the Visual Museum project. He highlights the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration and the challenges of digital humanities. He emphasizes the potential impact of the Visual Museum in providing a user-friendly experience and rectifying the void in women's history. Key Takeaways:  - The Luce Foundation grant played a crucial role in kickstarting the Visual Museum project and turning it into a reality. - Interdisciplinary collaboration is essential in creating innovative and impactful projects like the Visual Museum. - The challenges of digital humanities include ensuring the permanence of digital tools and maintaining quality control in crowdsourcing. - The Visual Museum has the potential to provide a user-friendly experience and rectify the void in women's history within the church. - Art is a powerful medium for experiencing and understanding the stories of the church, and the Visual Museum aims to provide curated and well-researched resources.  https://www.visualmuseum.gallery/ The purpose of this collaborative project is to create a curated, permanent visual exhibit of women in the history, ministry, and piety of early, Byzantine, and medieval Christianity that will be available online for researchers, educators, and interested laypersons. The goal of this multi-year project is to make the visual record of women in ministry and leadership available free of charge and unencumbered by permission requirements, and to include short teaching elements to guide the audience through the constitutive and pivotal role of women throughout Christian history. Together with the visual story, the accompanying narrative will make it possible for patrons to learn about women throughout history and across the globe and their unique contributions to the life and faith of the church… A history that remains mostly untold.
