N.T. Wright on Women in Ministry 5

Bishop Wright advocates for the full participation of women in the life of the Church. Citing the examples of Junia as an apostle and Phoebe as a deacon in Romans 16, and the commissioning of Mary Magdelene as the first person to announce the resurrection of Jesus in John 20, he believes that the biblical evidence supporting women in leadership is overwhelming.

There are still many pastors and leaders both young and old in Malaysian churches who would find it difficult to embrace Bishop Wrights interpretation here. I’m not one of them 🙂 So, I’m looking forward to congratulate our associate pastor Naomi Tan on her ordination on the 31 August 2009!
