Barbie is everywhere thanks to Greta Gerwig’s recent blockbuster movie about the (in)famous doll. Some say it is anti-man propaganda that went too far while others say it didn’t go far enough! Abdu and Derek discuss these reactions and some surprising ways in which Barbie actually affirms the Bible, while also being confronted by it.
In the previous episode, Abdu addressed allegedly sexist “texts of terror” in the Bible. Today, he presents his evidence for why the Bible establishes rather than inhibits the equality and dignity of women, often in very surprising ways!
Are certain verses in the Bible truly sexist “texts of terror”? Are women forbidden from speaking in church? Does the Old Testament command that women must marry their rapists? Join Abdu as he cross-examines these texts and more in the first of a two-part series on sexism and the Bible.
