New Testament Scholar: Donna Howell Is Correct—The Apostle Paul Supported Women Teachers, Preachers, And Prophets

New Testament scholar Lynn Cohick believes the Apostle Paul would not have a problem with her going to a church to teach male pastors because Paul knew that Priscilla was teaching Apollos, one of his trusted co-workers in Corinth. Cohick, Professor of New Testament at Wheaton College in Chicago – a leading evangelical college – believes Paul’s teaching on the participation of women in the church has been misunderstood or taken out of context.
