 In Church, Leadership, Old Covenant, Podcasts, Women

Quite often whenever the topic of women in ministry comes up, defenders of the egalitarian position mention the Old Testament judge Deborah.

In this episode, Kenny elaborates upon the story from the Book of Judges and highlights the lessons we can learn from the life of Deborah.
