Did the apostles really want wives to submit to their husbands? Alistair Begg engages the oft-misunderstood texts surrounding this question with sensitivity and clarity. Writing on marriage, the apostles focused on character traits husbands and wives need to fulfill their God-given roles. While many societies scorn these biblical concepts as outdated, Christians must see the Bible promoting revolutionary love and respect, especially in the context of first-century cultures. Scripture encourages godly families in which husbands lead and wives submit in mutual equality under Jesus Christ.
18Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.
