I'm sure many of you have heard the verses that say that a woman in the gathered meeting of the church should not exert authority over a man, but does this mean that she can't think, learn, or teach? There are a lot of contexts where a woman needs to teach. One of the most important ones is in the home, the place where real influence is exerted. The mother in Proverbs is presented with her husband as an eminent teacher of her children. She is so skilled that God chose to include this mother’s words in the inspired Holy Word of God. Do women author parts of Scripture? Yes. Try King Lemuel’s mother.
