WMV (A bible-translation.) → rsa092.htm
- Wolves and beasts:
- When the apostle spoke to the elders from Ephesus, he warned about “burdensome wolves” who “speak perverted things” (Acts 20:29–30). → rma023.htm
- In his letter to Titus, Paul warned about “savage beasts, not willing to work” (Titus 1:12). → rea052.htm
- In the Greek text of the New Testament, the word for “woman” is mostly gunê which can mean both “woman” and “wife”. In certain NT passages where translators have rendered gunê as “woman”, it appears that the translation should instead be “wife”. (Point: All passages which mention gunê or the plural form gunai do not refer to women in general; sometimes, that word refers specifically to married women.)
- Should women be “ordained”? The Greek text of the New Testament does not support the concept of “ordaining”, neither male nor female. (The saints had no mortal priests. The resurrected Jesus was their only priest.) → rea022.htm

- Galatians 4 – the allegory with Sarah the freewoman and Hagar the slave-woman. → rca082.htm – raa022.htm
- 2 Timothy 3:5–6: It seems that the apostle Paul did not mean that the fooled women were “burdened with sins” but rather that the men who deceived them were that. → rma113.htm
- Look also under the headings “Wives” and “Marriage”.
