Women and men in church and family

Here are two helpful videos on the topic of women in ministry by esteemed New Testament scholar Dr. Ben Witherington III.  Part 1 gives us a biblical perspective on women's roles in ministry and family.  In Part 2, Dr. Witherington explains why women should have leadership roles in the Church.  He addresses the so called "problem passages" and explains them within the context of the ancient world.
