Are Husbands the "Head" of Their Wives? The Meaning of Kephale, part 2: Preston Sprinkle
Theology in the Raw

In this second episode on Kephale, I begin by looking at how Paul uses Kephale in Ephesians 1:22 and then 4:15, before jumping into its use in 5:23.

I finally look at Eph 5:21-33 in light of the household code genre and examine several features in this passage that will help us understand the meaning and function of "head" (Kephale) in 5:23. I end up following a similar reading that Michelle Lee-Barnewall offers in her outstanding article: "Turning ..read more
