In the physical realm there are gender roles but not so much in the Spiritual other than symbolism that relates to our gender roles.
When it comes to public gatherings (and a household/ 1 Cor. 11:3,8-9) it is mans responsibility to keep order. However a man that doesn't fulfill this responsibility shouldn't expect to be respected in this sense.
Any man that would say that a woman can't serve as an instrument of edification and of the Word of YHVH, has little to no understanding of the Word.
We have many scriptures that speak of women playing a major role in bringing forth the truth (Word).
We have mention of 9 prophetesses at least (example- Philip the Evangelist had four virgin daughters who prophesied (Acts 21:9) (Miriam, Ex.15:20 / Deborah Judges4:4 / Huldah 2 Kings 22:14/ 2 Chron.34:22/ Prophetesses born a son Is.8:3 / Anna Luke2:36 )
A video sermon:--> prophetess <--
Note the women at the tomb (Mk.16:1 / Luke 24) . They were first to discover that Christ had resurrected and were then asked to share this info with the disciples!
Note: the woman at the well! Jn.4:39-40 She called Many to come to Christ :)
Note: Deborah (a Female judge of Israel), she was a brave a faithful judge who lead Israel into battle when no man would Judges 4:8-9 :)
El- Shaddai compares his nurchering to our exsperiance with a loving caring mother. Is.66:13 . Mary (Mother of Yahshua) physically brought forth and raised Emmanuel. She like all parents would have spoken in parable form of which Christ used to speak to the children of the Father.
Gen. 3:20 - Eve was called the mother of all living (even though through transgression came death/ through umbilical cord (Eve) to umbilical cord (Mary) came Christos (Jesus) and if you be not in christ you are not spiritually alive.
Today Many Women have been forced to take on all parenting roles! They are the ones who raise the children. Yet some men would speak down of them who not only take on the role of a woman but a man that failed to take on his own. With this being so it is obvious they (good women) play a role in sharing God's Word according to his will.
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
The Body of Christ is the Bride of Christ!
When it came to the temple of old only men were levitical priests. Many of the duties would have called for physical strength, and also call to keep order amoung the masses in a gathering. Before Rome's infulence and somewhat during "Church" and state were one within the priesthood.
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.
"Keep silence" #4601
to keep silent (transitive or intransitive): - keep close (secret, silence), hold peace.
No One should chatter in service.
"Speak"- Greek #2980
A prolonged form of an otherwise obsolete verb; to talk, that is, utter words: - preach, say, speak (after), talk, tell, utter.
There is to be a certain order kept when gathering together in worship (note the term Obedience, should a man also have Obedience in "church"? Of Course. If there be an open floor with interuptions such would only stunt growth, if there were many talking at the same time that too would cause distractions. Women being mentioned here is mainly because it is more in a womans nature to chatter. It covers all the bases (men and women) to those with ears to hear.
Note 'quietness' and 'silent' are the same Greek word hesuchia (like hush:). This means 'do not chatter' or 'do not gossip'. In 2 Thess.3:12 it is translated "quietness" - 'settle down'.This instruction by Paul does not forbid a woman to contribute to church duties, but is a reminder of good behaviour and manners. (Order)
Rom. 16:7 Junia here is a female disciple of Christ. Paul says she was a follower of Christ even before he was. We see the term Salute when he mentions her! "a fellow prisoner"
All members of the Many membered body are members of Christ. Anyone who wants to add status outside of scripture should be careful.
1 Tim.2:9-15 (Gen.3:16)
In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works 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. For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.
