The ''New'' Testament confirms the same as the ''Old.''

The King James Version (KJV) is mostly used in these lessons. Click here to access the KJV online.

Some claim that in the “New Testament”, a woman is “liberated” and she can now take on the leadership role in the body of Messiah. Furthermore, some claim that a woman is now equal in authority to a man in marriage. However, we find no “new testament” scriptures which would contradict the role and position of women in the so called “Old Testament”. To the contrary, there are many texts that support the same role.

1 Peter 3:3- Do not let your adornment be [merely] outward–arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on [fine] apparel– 4 – rather [let] [it] [be] the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible [beauty] of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of Yahuwah. 5 – For in this manner, in former times, the holy women who trusted in Yahuwah also adorned themselves, being submissive to their own husbands, 6 – as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him master, whose daughters you are if you do good and are not afraid with any terror.

Here we see a “new testament” scripture which clearly demonstrates that a woman should be looking to women of “Former times” as examples of how to live. “Holy women who trusted in Yahuwah” by adorning themselves with submission to their own husbands, “as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him master, whose daughters you are if you do good and are not afraid with any terror

Women are instructed to not be afraid when they submit to their husbands. Fear is what drives many women to try their hand at overthrowing her husband’s decisions by striving, contending, and arguing with them. Generally, the fear is that a husband’s decision will result in an unpleasant circumstance. In fact, Yahuwah doesn’t promise that women will not endure any unpleasant circumstances when we submit to Him! Rather, look at what Yahushua went through and remember that He is our example of how to respond to unpleasant circumstances: By humbly, quietly trusting in Yahuwah. Sarah trusted in Yahuwah when she submitted to her husband’s decision to tell everyone she was his sister. It was fear that drove Abraham to do this. As a result, she ended up in the harem of a king but Yahuwah intervened and delivered her unharmed. Abraham and Sarah walked away from that incident with abundant possessions. Read about it in Genesis 20.

In the verses we read above, Sarah called her husband “master”, or “Adon” in the Hebrew. In Genesis 18:12, she calls him “Adonai” which means “My Master”. Notice also that it says “Sarah obeyed Abraham”. The word “Obeyed” here in 1 Peter 3:6 above is Strong’s word #5219 which is also translated “Obey” in Luke 8:25.

Luke 8:25 (KJV) And he said unto them, Where is your faith? And they being afraid wondered, saying one to another, What manner of man is this! for he commandeth even the winds and water, and they obey (5219) him.

So we can see that the word “Submissive” is equated with “Obeying”. The women are to be submissive just as Sarah obeyed Abraham and the wind and water obeyed Yahushua. This is the example that women are called to follow in the “new testament”.
