Unformatted text preview: This chapter discusses how Paul was a Pharisee who encountered a revelation and became a Christian leader. It then goes on to say that he had more than one vision/revelation. I wish the book would have given more of a description. The first one was on a road, but where were the others? What did these visions consist of? We may not have the answers, but regardless, I think it raises interesting questions. I found the section that talks about how Paul judges women confusing. It gives examples of how he treats women as equal to men, saying There is no such thing as male and female. However, in other parts he has a negative attitude towards them, forbidding them to address the meeting and saying women should be silent and submissive. Could either of these views just been added in by a copier of the text? Might one of these views have reflected the attitude towards women of the time period in which it was written?...
