1. Did Paul really think women should be silent in church or was that a later interpolation?
  2. Did Early Christian woman have more authority in the Church that was slowly taken away from them by ecclesiastical patriarchy?
  3. Did the Early Christians do vicarious baptisms for those who died without baptism?
  4. Did Paul really write 1 Corinthians?
  5. What is the earliest evidence of the Christian belief of Jesus’ death and Resurrection and how close is that story to the actual life and death of Jesus of Nazareth?
All of these questions and more are discussed in this episode of The CES Podcast with Dr. Sheldon Greaves.
