Discussion for 1 Corinthians 11

    I think the covering for the woman is her hair and not headgear because in 1 Corinthians 11:15 says so
  • Jettie Hess
    Am finding your words confusing. 1st Corinthians Chapter 11 is meaningful to those who respect and love the Lord. As far as communion, every time we partake of the bread and drink from the cup, we are re-telling the message of the Lord's death, that He has died for us. This too, is to be done respectfully, and is something we are asked to do until He comes again.

    No transubstantiation here. !!!
    Yet another totally absurd notion confected by men dressed in rich vestments to give the impresion off power. Instead why not invoke the fulness of God the Holy Spirit!!??
  • Ben Weaver
    Vs.11-12 describe how our new testament life "In the Lord" required both a fallen human representative, (Mary a woman) and also Jesus a man, so that the Word could be made flesh,(see Jn.1:14) whereas, in the former creation, (see v.8) man (Adam) was not made of a woman. This was all in God's purpose. to connect Almighty God with fallen humanity, both male and female by Jesus, the second Adam.
  • Ben Weaver
    Verse 3 starts with "but" which changes thought flow to Paul's answer to their question. The Gr. word for head means "source or supply" (see "sum" Acts 22:28.) The present context describes Adam being the substance for Eve's being, and that "in the Lord" (see v.11) Christ is the life source for both. (every man.) There is no indication to "head" meaning superior role, rather like a river's head.
  • Ben Weaver
    As part of Paul's response to their questions; (see Ch.7:1) verses 2 thru 9 are referring to first creation, and 10 to 16 about being "In the Lord."(v.11) Let the woman be covered" is a fitting symbol for non-Christian- God fearing women, indicating the fall of mankind. In Jesus, such separation is overcome, therefore the churches have no such custom. Bible head covering always indicates failure.
