-1001 CONTRADICTIONS & DISCREPANCIES in the CHRISTIAN BIBLES



Can women be church leaders?
Yes, they can. No, they cannot.
Acts 18:26
"Priscilla ... expounded unto him the way of God."

Romans 16:1, 7
"I commend unto you Phebe our sister, which is a servant of the church." (v.1)

("I commend you to our sister Phoebe, a deaconess of the church." -- The Revised Standard Version)


"Junia ... of note among the apostles" (v.7)

1 Corinthians 14:34-35
"Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience as also saith the law. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church."

1 Timothy 2:11-12
"Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence."
"Junia" (Romans 16:7)
Some translators were so upset at the idea of a woman apostle that they replaced "Junia" with "Junias." The problem with this is that although "Junia" was a common woman's name at that time, there is no evidence for "Junias" as a man's name.
Bart D. Ehrman, Misquoting Jesus (2005), p.185
