John 1:1-5 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

The Deity of Jesus Christ

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. 5 The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.

  1. My question is not related to this post but about a statement concerning women.

    Should Women be Silent in the Church? 1 Corinthians 14:34 and 35. What does these verses really mean? What it an addition?

    1. I would like to discuss question in segments. Please consider this reply be the first segment. Read the following verses, and the comment from the NKJV study bible. In addition to 1 Cor 14, I have added 1 Cor 11, where women are permitted to speak. Here is some background info. In the early church, men and women sat on opposite sides of the building. A couple of things could have been happened. The church at Corinth was a very dysfunctional congregation. The women may have been shouting questions to their husbands, who were seated on the other side of the room. There may also have been an issue with spiritual gifts, with the women in that congregation speaking out out of control. After you have settled the issues of your question, we can move onto another segment. Thanks,Here are the two passages and a comment. Please read the verses and comment carefully. 1 Corinthians 14:34-35 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)
      34 let the wives remain silent when the congregation meets; they are certainly not permitted to speak out. Rather, let them remain subordinate, as also the Torah says; 35 and if there is something they want to know, let them ask their own husbands at home; for it is shameful for a woman to speak out in a congregational meeting.

      1 Corinthians 11:5 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)

      5 but every woman who prays or prophesies with her head unveiled brings shame to her head — there is no difference between her and a woman who has had her head shaved.

      NKJV Study Bible

      11:5, 6 every woman who prays or prophesies: Women were obviously allowed to pray and prophesy in the Christian assembly because it would have been meaningless for Paul to give instructions for something they were not permitted to do. Dishonors her head refers either to the woman’s own physical head or to her husband as her head, or possibly both (v. 4). For a woman not to cover her head with a veil or with her own hair was as shameful as having a shaved head, a sign of public disgrace.


      1. Thank you. My address begins with “equipping.” It is often that I email internet friends. I can tell that you are serious about God’s Word. I will send some more info to you about the subject that we are addressing. Thanks for being a friend.


      2. You are very welcome. While I get my thoughts together to write to you, think about your question about women being “silent.” Think also about the church being the born again body of believers, and not a building, or structure. We will carry on this train of thought by email. I will send an email to you in just a minute. Thanks.
