The Five Aspects of Woman Bible study presents a way of seeing what God intends a woman to be. By studying God’s original and exemplary gender patterns—Christ and the Church, Adam and Eve, God and Israel—we see God’s design and purpose for masculinity and femininity. The course teaches a Biblical vision for understanding and living God’s design for gender. Each aspect is studied as it was created to be, as it is distorted by sin, and as it is redeemed in Christ.
Femininity and gender are complex subjects. We cannot sum up femininity with one verse on submission or another on equality. Even the key passages listed above are only starting points. We must draw upon the entire Word of God — His definitions, laws, narratives, and the repeated patterns we see throughout the Bible — and not only hear what God says when He defines woman, but also watch closely how He uses gender truth in His whole revelation.
