Once a complementarian, Dr. Jamin Hübner, author of A Case for Female Deacons (Wipf & Stock, 2014) and a number of academic journal articles, joins me to discuss his change of mind and why he now thinks the Bible teaches egalitarianism.
In “A Listener’s Response to Jim Hamilton (Part 1)” I posted listener Allison’s response to my interview with complementarian Dr. Jim Hamilton, who himself appeared to respond to my interview with egalitarian Dr. Philip Payne. What follows is Allison’s part 2, which you can also find at her blog. Incidentally, Dr. Payne recently let me interview him a second time for his response to Dr. Hamilton, and you can find part 1 of that interview in episode 103.
In episodes 85 and 86 I interviewed egalitarian Dr. Philip Payne, and found his case somewhat compelling. Recently I interviewed Dr. Jim Hamilton in episodes 96 and 97 for his complementarian response to Dr. Payne, which I also found compelling. While I lean toward complementarianism at this point, I find myself impressed by the case made by scholarly proponents of each position, and I don’t believe egalitarianism—at least of the sort promoted by Dr. Payne—can be as easily dismissed as I once thought.
I am reaching out to notable egalitarians asking if I may interview them for their response to Hamilton, or if they’re interested in a debate. In the meantime, listener Allison has written a review of part 1 of the Hamilton interview, which you can find here. With her permission, I’m reproducing it in its entirety below. Discuss!
