Welcome

Steef and Tineke lived in South Africa with their four children for 8 years. In 2006 they came back as a family, but Steef kept on traveling to teach his courses on mission awareness throughout Africa. Now that the children are all out of the house and having families of their own, they have decided to work in missions together again.

On this website you can read about their adventures, news when traveling as a blog, and Steef's articles on Bible based missiology. 

May you be blessed as you read on...

Dear friends,
 
Our love and greetings to you. Three weeks ago we arrived in South Africa. It is Springtime!

Chapter 65: Women in Ministry

Introduction

First we must understand what the Scriptures meant for their own times, then we can learn their meaning for our times. Paul placed 1st century Christianity in its cultural context and we need to place 21st century Christianity in cultural contexts. To do so properly, we need to understand the difference between moral and cultural values in the Bible. Causing no offense seems to be the most important rule.

Scripture reference

There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus (Gal. 3:28)

Here there is no Greek or Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave or free, but Christ is all, and is in all (Col. 3:11)

The story

Paul wrote about how women should behave and minister in the church. Throughout church history there have been misunderstandings about his sayings. The first thing we must understand is that Paul regarded all people equal in God’s sight, because Jesus Christ broke down the barriers between Jews and Gentiles, educated and un-educated, poor and rich as well as between men and women.
