The Ezer Group Podcast #1

What Is Headship, Really?

New Testament scholar Dr. Philip Payne discusses the meaning of “headship.”

Does God intend a husband to be the “leader” of a wife? Does “headship” mean he has the role of authority in the relationship? Does biblical submission require a wife to yield “the final say” to her husband in decision-making? Dr. Philip Payne covers these questions and more. He explains why “plain readings” of Scripture, in modern English, often fall short of God’s intentions for husbands and wives. He helps us uncover the beautiful truth of mutual submission in covenant marriage.
